Lovely interior but needs improving

The Pantry is a lovely little cafe, it is nicely decorated and has a lovely atmosphere with friendly staff. However, it really needs to improve on the food and drink which let it down badly. My daughter asked for a stack of pancakes (American style rather than the typical shrove tuesday type); what... read more

This is delightful little café, spotlessly clean, including the toilets, friendly staff, a decent menu, good quality food at a fair price. In word almost perfect. I say almost because they allow dogs in and in my book that is unacceptable. I like dogs but they should not be allowed in eating establishments unless of course they are guide dogs... More

Visited the pantry after having a massage! The decor was wonderful and very welcoming! Shared a ploughman's olkater which was reasonably priced and finished off with a slice of the coffee cake and coffee! The staff were friendly and was offered a small discount as there was some confusion with my order initially! Food was excellent, presentation was great! Over... More

On arriving at The Pantry in Bedale after a beautiful motorcycle ride through the Yorkshire Dales, we were greeted with a pleasant smile and an enthusiastic welcome from Sonia, Rachel and Emmeline. They were good fun and tolerated our Australian ways with great banter, making the enjoyable meal insignificant, really, to the country-style ambience of the cafe. Thank you girls... More

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!
