Gluten Free Guide to Brixham

I recently visited Brixham in South Devon, along with my boyfriend for our five year anniversary and like any of our weekend breaks I always research places to eat and drink. Being in the English riviera and famous for its fishing dating back to the 14th century, you are bound to find various fish and chip shops but there are other foodie places to eat that may take your fancy plus they offer gluten free!

The Curious Kitchen

As we arrived bright and early in Brixham after travelling for three hours you certainly work up an appetite. Luckily for us The Curious Kitchen, Brixham served gluten free breakfast /brunch until 3pm in a hip and funky setting right on middle street. The price of the brunch in Brixham ranged from £7-11 which is reasonable for the amount of food you received.

I opted for the delicious pulled pork eggs benedict with bacon. And Blake chose the salmon with eggs benedict, avocado and gluten free bread. We also both had freshly squeezed orange juice.

Not only was the food super tasty but I loved the overall vibe of the restaurant in Brixham.

The Lytehouse

Being our 5 year anniversary we wanted somewhere to eat in Brixham that was romantic and sophisticated. The Lytehouse is a British restaurant in Brixham run by a husband and wife team and although a bit more on the pricier side it's totally worth it!

As soon as we arrived the host was attentive and explained the monthly changing menu to us including what could be taken off to make it gluten free. The kitchen was also open so you could see them cooking away at the impressive dishes, which use locally sourced produce. 

We both had the monkfish to start which was delightful and then I had the beef with a mushroom puree and Blake had the hake. Then we had greens and truffle cooked potatoes for sides. Overall our meal was presented to a high quality, all the flavours came together beautifully.


You can't go to the British seaside without having ice cream and for us we had to try a different flavour every night from I.Scream. What I liked about this ice cream shop right on the Brixham harbour was they labelled all the flavours as gluten free and had cones too! I highly recommend the salted caramel.

David's Fish & Chips

We were amazed at how many of the fish and chip shops in Brixham cooked gluten free. But after looking online we found David’s Fish and Chips a 10 minute walk from the harbour which has won gold back in 2017 at the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards in the fish and chip shop category and the Crème de la Crème category. We could tell when we walked in it was more of a locals place and not a tourist trap and we were glad we went. Blake's fish had the tastiest batter and my scampi was amazing!
