We regularly visit The Pantry whilst out shopping, usually just for a coffee, occasionally for a light lunch. Staff always very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Coffee great, food tasty, surroundings just redecorated, clean, light and attractive. Very relaxed atmosphere.

My mother was an excellent home baker and, 36 years ago, I married a girl like my mother. So until today I have never had to say, "this cake is better than you make love." But the lemon drizzle cake was sensational. This week we are on a tour of north Yorkshire having a cream tea every day. The Pantry... More

Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your cake Louise (one of our bakers) is a whizz at Lemon Drizzle, I have to confess we had a giggle at the statement to your wife, hope she enjoyed her visit too and we look forward to seeing you again next time your passing. More

This is not the place for fast food, but it is for quality! Even their snacks are presented with care and provide a feast of tastiness! Spacious rooms, and relaxed atmosphere, in fact so relaxed there is no catch on the men's toilet!

A tidy and welcoming looking cafe, from the outside. Most tables were being used by customers which initially seemed a good sign, but we quickly realised they were all WAITING for their orders. Very slow service, not at all welcoming and a very long wait at half 12 for a simple order of one tuna sandwich with hand-cut CRISPS??, a... More

Thank you for reviewing The Pantry, I think I have covered most points in my reply to the review from your companion, however I would like to mention the tuna and sweetcorn sandwich we serve with the option of mayo (as it says on the menu) as its not to everyones taste. Your companion was offered an exchange or different... More

Mediocre coffee and unimpressive scones coupled with average service it is easy to see why other coffee shops are busier. Not sure if it has changed hands but it used to be really good.

We visited on Wednesday 17th June 2015, at 12.15pm. We took the last table available, as the cafe had so many people in it we thought it meant it was popular and offered something more than the limited menu. The interior is very countryfied, with odd tables and chairs, a couple of two seater sofa's, one in the window with... More

Thanks for taking the time to review The Pantry, all points are warmly welcomed. It is unfortunate with regards to the soup, our vegetable delivery had been held up that morning we do apologise for this, the bread served with the soup is Granary Walnut not Wholemeal and Walnut. The counter is at the rear of the building as it... More

Saw The Pantry was under new management, so went in as I had been avoiding due to poor service and staff chatter in kitchen being clearly heard whilst dining! The service was excellent, good to have soy milk available. No chatter or noise from kitchen. Lovely coffee and toasted teacake. However to pay more than £5 for this I did... More

Lovely teashop with nice decor and good service. Great selection of cakes and light lunches. A little pricey for a cup of tea -getting on for Bettys prices!
