We had lovely service and good food at Newmans. My only wee observation is that the food could have been a wee bit hotter. Other than that it was pretty perfect with rose petals on the table for our celebration.

They definitely have gluten free options- but I cannot speak to whether their kitchen is equipped with a separate prep area for folks that are highly reactive to gluten/ cross contamination.
