We’re now meeting even more of our Customers needs at the Five Bells, Colne Engaine!

At the Five Bells in Colne Engaine our new Head Chef, Steve Flemming has bounded into business working very hard alongside the team and our customers alike to bring something very special to our new menu!
We have always served a handful of gluten free items but over the past few weeks it was brought to Steve’s attention how many people suffer with dietary problems and how difficult people find it to dine out as they struggle to find a menu that they can eat – it seems more the case that they eat the only bland item on the menu that is available.
From much hard work in both speaking with customers and research along with many hours in the kitchen experimenting with ingredients, Steve has been able to come up with a menu, where by almost every item can be made gluten free, this includes Fish and Chips, Pasta & a whole array of desserts! Many customers have tried & tested items from this new menu and can’t taste the difference what so ever, even the presentation including the colour of the food remains the same – genius!
Steve has said ‘if you want something special or specific please call a couple of days beforehand & we will strive to achieve your request’.
The menus have been given lots of thought along with many testing trials to ensure that we were getting it right!
The menu is going live on the evening of Wednesday 21st July and we hope that we will now be able to please many more people!

  1. Very interested to hear that you now serve a varied Gluten free menu as my mum, Gareth's nan, is coeliac. She has started using Chestnut and Rice Flour for her bread and is very impressed with the results. I look forward to introducing her to your menu and getting her Grandson to cook her a hearty meal.
