Guildford, located 30 miles southwest of London, was a pilgrimage site for me, as the final resting place of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, aka Lewis Carroll.

After paying my respects to my literary idol, we went to the Guildford Castle
, a very old (William the Conqueror Era) keep with lovely gardens, including a striking Alice in Wonderland statue.

Steps away from the castle and it's Alice Garden was Cote Bistro
. They have a dedicated GF menu, and seemed to "get" what gluten free means. They are an upscale chain with numerous locations
throughout the UK.

I had a delicious asparagus risotto with goat cheese, and for dessert I ordered a Chocolate Pot with Creme Fraiche. Oh, so so good! (Strangely, this dessert ONLY appeared on the gluten free menu, and was not listed on the regular menu. More for us, I guess!)

Cote Bistro was affordable, delicious, and very convenient if you are visiting Guildford Castle, and they have many other locations as well.
