The Millstone gets a lot of tourists due to its central location and large servings which is always nice after a long day of sight-seeing and city walking so note that it does begin to fill up quickly from 6pm onwards, even in these recessional times. But of course, our real interest at Survival Guide is how they cater to food allergies...
Gluten free options are a lovely thing but an especially dedicated Gluten Free menu is quite an amazingly lovely thing! And yes, that is just what the Millstone offers. The other lovely thing is that the menu says right on the top of the 1st page that if you have food allergies to let the staff know - I like this.
So, we easily worked around our dairy intolerances and picked dishes that suited my other multiple issues.
The really nice thing about the gluten free menu for me is that it’s almost the same length as the regular menu and they even have a ‘Coeliac Traditional Irish Set Menu’ to choose from which has some of your favourite Irish meals like:
- Seafood Chowder
- Irish Salmon dishes
- Steamed Mussels
- Irish Stew
- Slow Roast Lamb Belly
- Vegetable & Goats Cheese Potato Pie
And also, desserts like Homemade Apple Flan on a gluten free sponge or homemade Bailey’s Crème Brulée! -obviously not dairy free on either account but still impressive.
So the lowdown is: if you’re Gluten free you will have an entire menu to choose from at the Millstone restaurant on Dame St and if you have some other type of food allergy the staff welcomes the knowledge and will help you work around your allergy the best they can, despite not having dedicated menus for everything. Note: the full menus for dinner, lunch & brunch (main menu & coeliac menu) are available on their website
