The Anonymous Widower

A Gluten-Free Lunch at Newmarket

I went to Newmarket races this afternoon.  Judging by the number of cars in the car park, a lot of other people had the same idea.  I blame the sunshine!  It was cold though, but people were wrapped up well, as this photo shows.

Note the large number of cars in the background.

I needed lunch and went to the Bistro.  If I’d done this some years ago and asked if the liver was gluten-free, I’d have got a blank look.  But for the last couple of years, they’ve known what was in any of the meals.

The liver was excellent and as I was driving I washed it down with a pint of Diet Coke.  The cost was even reasonable for a racecourse, or even any sit-down meal with service, at twenty pounds.  That service was very much on the good side of four out of five.

They only charged two pounds for the Coke, which is about the same you’ll pay for it in a motorway service station.  And in that case you don’t get a glass and you have to pour it yourself.
