Gluten Free Breakfast at The Corinthia Hotel, London

As I very very very slowly move away from eating my body weight in afternoon tea, I’ve decided to take on a new challenge and check out what the luxury hotels in London can offer us gluten free folks for breakfast, lunch, dinner and more importantly dessert!  So after a rather quick discussion with Zoe from Love and Limoncello we decided to check out the gluten free breakfast on offer at the Corinthia Hotel in London.


This wasn’t my first visit to the Corinthia Hotel in London (my gluten free afternoon tea review) and it won’t be my last; I’ve got their spa on my hit list.  First impressions were good, I was welcomed at the door and given directions to the Northall Bar where breakfast was to be served.

The breakfast menu is clearly labelled showing which items contain gluten and our waiter confirmed that the bread could be substituted with a gluten free bread.  I like to get the all important question out of the way first – do they offer gluten free pancakes?  Unfortunately the hotel doesn’t but I wasn’t disappointed as the bacon and eggs were screaming out to me.


Come to mama, you need a close up!


The toasted muffin was substituted with gluten free toast but still had the most glorious Middle Dry Cured Bacon and Poached Organic Egg sitting proudly on top.  I love googly eggs i.e. runny and they were done to perfection.

For a comparison this is what the gluten loaded version looks like with the toasted muffin!


I’ve come to the conclusion that tea should always be served in silver teapots


Zoe and I sat down in the Northall Restaurant however you can sit in the more informal Northall Bar which is just as beautiful.  The restaurant had better light for our photos (sad but very true, blogging isn’t easy folks!)



First things first, making the booking was rather easy – a simple phone call and boom we had a reservation.  I did double check that they could offer a gluten free breakfast and the answer was obviously yes!


My breakfast including tea and service charge cost £25 and was worth it however I do think £5.50 is a tad expensive for a pot of tea even if it’s in a silver teapot…

Would I recommend?

Totally, I left feeling full and with enough energy to hit the sales to buy a pair of shoes!  As they say…breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  You can find more information on The Corinthia Hotel, London website.

Where do you recommend in London for a gluten free breakfast?  Have you checked out The Corinthia in London, did you enjoy your experience?
