Nothing Gluten-Free on Virgin Trains

There were complimentary sandwiches, but nothing that was gluten-free, except for an apple, coffee and diet-Pepsi.

Sandwiches are always a problem, as you can’t expect gluten-free ones.  I would have liked a banana, as I find apples a bit difficult with my mouth from the stroke.

  1. I paid a rare visit to Manchester city centre today, and used a shopmobility scooter to get around – I mostly stayed in the Arndale Centre because it raining. I had lunch at one of the Starbucks, and they were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble! I had the GF sandwich, and they got me a chocolate brownie out of the fridge, and were generally helpful and pleasant. I had debated taking my own scooter and going on the train, but the local news is full of a story about them not helping people onto trains with wheelchairs, and I cant see scooters being any different.

  2. […] I got a nice complimentary gluten-free salad on the way back.  So Virgin can do gluten-free, despite what I said earlier.  […]
