          A friend and I are coming to Gt, Barrier on Sept 5 for 2 nights. I have some food allergies including wheat, dairy, peanuts and pulses eg chickpeas, lentils, and preservatives, I am keen to try your restaurant and love seafood, all meat, salads, vegetables, but obviously pasta and pizzas are out. Would you be able to cater to my dietary needs? ros
