The Pantry was recommended to us by the local butcher who also supplies them. The fry up was perfect and extremely good value. Our waitress was very friendly and very efficient. Will definitely go back for more.

Went for lunch recently. The food was served in good time and tasted very nice (one had the pantry burger, one had the veg platter. Service was good, not too nagging all the time about the next course or drinks. Atmosphere was nice and quaint, a little tight in the centre but what can you do! Would definitely go again... More

Are here in the evening, it was a Monday so fairly quiet but never the less the food was wonderful. I had a vegetarian starter and fish main from the specials board. I couldn't fault any of it.

I've been here before, and enjoyed it. This time though..... still the same attractive place and friendly staff, but I had a full breakfast, and it really wasn't good enough. The ingredients looked pretty good, but the sausage wasn't cooked enough and the bacon was greasy. This was verging on greasy spoon standard, and it's a shame, because the place... More

We've visited The Pantry on multiple occasions, attracted by the atmosphere, the cakes in the window(!) and the fact that it is one of the few places that is always lively and popular. The first few times went well, but more recently...it's been lacking. On multiple occasions they've been out of stock of what I've wanted to order, we've gotten... More

One doesn't expect to find as good a restaurant as this in a shopping precinct in the middle of town. Cooking in full view of customers, the chefs provide excellent food and value for money. The pleasant waiting staff add very much to the experience.
