Gluten Free

We have a menu which, with just a couple of exceptions, can be gluten-free, including a range of mouth-watering home-made cakes and savouries.

Our indulgent Afternoon and High Tea are also available as a gluten-free option so no need to miss out on a treat. Customers come from near and far for our gluten-free food – why not spend the day shopping or enjoy the historical sites of Colchester and join us for a well-deserved rest.

Planning a party or a get together at home and  not sure what gluten-free food to provide? Don’t be shy, just call us to pre-order and we’ll have them ready for you to collect direct from the tearoom.

Our gluten-free savoury products are available in 6’s or 12’s. You can choose from a range of frozen tartlets, cheese, chive and tomato/ bacon, brie and cranberry/goats cheese and caramelised onion/cheddar cheese and leek or a gluten-free pork sausage, apricot and chestnut pastry roll.

If it’s cake you’d prefer, these will come whole freshly decorated and will serve 14-18.  We have a choice of Coffee and Walnut/Victoria Sponge/ Lemon Curd/Lemon and Raspberry/Chocolate and Vanilla/Chocolate and Cherry and tray bakes of Orange and Almond as well as the very popular Chocolate Brownies.

Not forgetting the classic of tea-time treats, scones. These are available frozen as Fruit/Plain and Cheese.
