Little pier of heaven

I often visit the Pantry as a little treat. It's one of the only places that does not make you feel uncomfortable for being on your own, they don't put you in a dingy corner they will put you on a proper table even if they are busy.

Most, if not all of this food is locally sourced and very fresh. It's not overly pricey but it's also not inexpensive. The atmosphere reminds me a lot of the types of place you would find in and around wine country back in the US. It's located inside The Guineas Shopping Centre which is a bit tired but the interior... More

Been to the pantry several times and the staff are always friendly. Service can be a little slow and the tables are quite close together. Quality of food and drinks is very good usually. However on my last visit the bakewell tart tasted a bit under cooked.

I have never heard of trip advisor and when out with a few friends the other evening they where informing me of it so with the help of my grandson I had a look and set up an account. After looking through some of the comments of the pantry I was shocked with how negative people can be and as... More

The Pantry is always busy at Lunchtime and sometimes it's a disappointment when you've promised yourself a treat.. however today we went in at 3.15 on a Friday and it was perfect! Lovely open sandwiches were devoured with a nice cup of coffee. I'm certain this is a really lovely place to have dinner so give it a go!

I recently stopped in for a late afternoon meal before spending an evening in meetings. The Pantry was comfortably set up, with a pleasant atmosphere and had excellent food. The service was first rate, with a friendly, attentive server. I had a latte which was good quality and not too extreme in bitterness or mildness. I also had a fish... More

I've been here several times- breakfast/tea&cake/lunch/dinner and it never fails to disappoint. Food is always excellent and service top notch. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough for great freshly cooked food. Always very high on my list when choosing a place to eat in Newmarket ;-)
