A LESMAHAGOW chip shop is doing something a little different – by becoming the first chippy in South Lanarkshire to start a healthy, gluten-free menu.

Rollo’s Cafe began the new menu last Sunday with fish, chips, chicken, onion rings and mushrooms all receiving the gluten-free treatment.

Owner Mark Rollo said: “We thought it would be a good idea to try something like this as I was at an exhibition last month and was speaking to a few people about gluten-free and wheat-free products.

“We thought that Sunday afternoon would be the best time to do it because all the friers have to be de-greased and cleaned, especially for this.

“It’s a lot more work for myself and my wife Carol but I think it will be worth it.”
