Excellent food as service

We came here on Sunday and ordered the roast beef. Service was a delight and well paced. The food was really good, bread & butter pudding could have been slightly larger as my dining companion stole some of mine. Lots of unusual soft drinks which were really good. I'll be back 😄

I came here with a friend for a casual tea. I ordered tea and scones. My tea came immediately, and 15 minutes later our waitress comes to tell me they don't have scones. I then instead ordered a croissant. 10 minutes later she comes back with the news they have no more croissants. I then order a muffin, and guess... More

Dear Aquacrystl, I am contacting you regarding your recent review, I must apologise for your disappointing experience with us. We offer a wide variety of homemade cakes and bought in pastries that are baked and delivered daily; on the menu we do try to make it clear that availability will vary due to the nature of our fresh produce. However... More

I went to The Pantry this evening with a work colleague. From the warm friendly welcome as we arrived to the great service that we received all through our meal I would thoroughly recommend The Pantry to anyone visiting Newmarket. The food of course was also cooked from scratch and was DIVINE!

I had a lovely birthday lunch with my sister and the steak I ordered was beautifully cooked. My sister's pork was equally prepared to a high standard. The lack of staff led to slow service which was disappointing.

Sited in a rather lacklustre 1990s shopping arcade, it was evident from the outside that the restaurant was popular with all tables full and a small queue. We waited for a table as Newmarket does not appear to be blessed with a range of venues to get a wholesome lunch. The staff were excellent, helpful and cheery and the food... More

A lovely evening with friends. The food here is superb scallops to die for , followed by beetroot and goats cheese salad. The wine reasonable and very good value. The staff very attentitive and polite. Service a little too slow but that is because the menu is too extensive. The problems arise with the noise - there are no fixture... More

I regularly visit The a Pantry and always enjoy my visit. The staff are customer focused and make everyone feel most welcome. The coffees are a high standard and the choice of teas rather impressive. The cakes are delicious and I especially like the lunch platters. I would always book if you are short on time or a party of... More
