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.

If you are looking for a quaint and quiet lunch this might not be the place but if you want excellent food this is the place. I had a Game Pie and was very pleased with it. My wife and daughter had light fare but enjoyed theirs too. They have an extensive in house made sweets selection and the bumble... More

Whilst out Xmas shopping we decided to grab a bite to eat in Newmarket. We were quickly seated and given menus and also told the "specials" for the day. Only wanting something light we opted for some sandwiches and a coffee. The sandwiches were divine - fresh and flavoursome - and as for the coffee - O M G -... More

Had a nice lunch of soup and a scotch egg. Service was good and the prices for sandwiches were fairly priced. Would go again.

First time eating at The Pantry and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were incredibly attentive and looked after us from start to finish - we will definitely be going again!

I have been going in the Pantry ever since it opened. The local produce food and excellent coffee and cakes makes it a very attractive location. Situated in the centre of the shopping arcade it gets extremely busy during meal times although they will try their best to fit you in somewhere. If a few of you for a meal... More

Stunning food. Every mouthful was a delight. No complaints other than you would not want to be too hungry. So as a big eater this was a disappointment!

Food - Excellent Service - A lot of staff but very slow service, apart from the very small young lady who seemed to be doing more work than the rest. It seemed to lack coordination of a manager as 4 different staff came to take orders instead of a person allocated to a few tables. Restaurant was busy at lunchtime... More

We popped in for tea and scones while on a day out in Newmarket. Fantastic selection of unusual leaf teas, I can recommend the Russian Caravan, in a good sized pot. Lovely cups, wide rim and light, possibly china. Excellent scone with homemade jam. All reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere and a small shop selling artisan bread etc. Oh, and an... More

We just popped in for coffee. Very nice place which looks like it can be all things to all people. Was very popular with lots of people, so clearly well regarded. We would return.
