Eating out

Hello, I have a 9month old DD with various allergies/intolerances which mostly is fine, I can cook around them, but, we are meant to be meeting up with old uni friends soon for a meal out and now I'm struggling!! She cannot have dairy, soya, peas or fish (and possible celery)-so neither can I (am still BF-ing) Most places list dairy free, gluten free, nut free etc, but that's all, does anyone know of any where with a more comprehensive list of what is included in their meals online? I've got to suggest where we go, so short of visiting a load of places first to see if what they have is suitable does anyone have any suggestions?

I find that chain restaurants will have their menus and allergy info online, or will have a book when you go in. They're not necessarily the nicest places to eat though. I've found Nandos, pizza express, frankie and benny's good.

The vast majority of places have been very helpful, some cooking something specially for Ds. If I was you I'd just pick where you want to go and phone the, up beforehand. There has very rarely been absolutely nothing Ds can eat and we eat out a lot.

Thanks! Most have some allergy info online-but it's usually limited to dairy, gluten and nuts. I think I will just have to do some phoning around.

Most should also list soya and fish, but you're unlikely to get celery and definitely not peas.

Yeah, most will have it in the restaurant, but seeing as i really dislike the phone, i was hoping to be able to look online, oh well... smile that's tomorrows job sorted.

I hate phoning too blush. I really think you could just pick somewhere and go, we've eaten out all over the place including many foreign countries and the only places that haven't been able to cater for DS have been cafes that only serve ready prepared sandwiches.

Beefeater and Table Table have very good allergy info available online and are 2 of the very few places that my 2 DC can eat out.

I know for a fact that Pizza Express, La Tasca, Harvester and Prezzo have allergy menus on their websites and these include dairy and soya, usually fish and others. My bf DS (13 months) and I can't have dairy, soya, white fish, etc.
