Dear Nicholas
The actual food labelling regulations do not specify what information restauranteurs should provide for their clients. However the Consumer Protection Act emphasises communication of factors such as risk to potential clients. It would, thus be to the restauranteur's advantage to either include details of potential allergens in menus or have this information available for their clients on request. A list of ingredients of each dish with the allergens marked as such would also be a good idea, because waitrons so often do not know what dishes contain. Other information such as the nutritional composition is not compulsory and GI declarations are not yet included in the regulations.
Best regards
