Gluten Free in Hay-on-Wye


I had a little holiday last week in and around the Cornwall and Herefordshire areas.
I guess all those 'go on holiday to England, it's great' adverts have had an effect on me!
While me and my husband were staying at my mother in law's place in Ross-on-Wye, we decided to have a day trip up to Hay-on-Wye. The signs tell you that it's the 'Town of Books' but I prefer to call it 'Where Books Go To Die'.
The whole day I had a massive craving for ice-cream and around lunchtime I dragged my hubby into the nearest shop advertising ice-cream.
I ordered a ickle tub of ice-cream (no cone, as you do) and I was just about to sit down when I noticed a Gluten Free Orange and Almond cake on display. So I ordered a slice and a pot of tea and sat down. Best lunch ever!
However it was only when I sat down that I saw the poster saying they offered gluten free cones. Bugger! But one hell of an excuse to go back another time.
The ice-cream btw was sheep's milk ice-cream. Though it was delish it didn't taste very different to cow's milk ice-cream to me.

If you're in the area, get thee down to Shepherds at Hay-on-Wye
