Amazing food-always some gorgeous specials available too. Drinks are good. Seating is cosy and it's always busy so recommend booking but it's worth the wait if you haven't thought ahead.

Whenever I visit my daughter we head for The Pantry. The cheese scones are amazing. We love the continental feel of the place, relaxed and buzzing at the same time. It is always busy which speaks volumes and I would recommend it.

Had a lovely lunch here. Unexpected treats like local smoked salmon and fish and it's all freshly made to order. Nice atmosphere and super clean. Gets very busy at the weekend. Tapas and cocktails from 4.00pm - enjoy.

Devilled kidneys on toast was raw and was tasteless. The plough mans platter was overpriced and bread was stake. To crown it we were presented with a mouldy stale old cheesecake. Where is the quality control ?

I've been to the pantry a number of times before, but on visiting today it was like a different place. The service was curt, if not rude. The table, floor and toilets were dirty - very dirty. The atmosphere was not good. Very sad, I can only assume that the business has either changed hands or become complacent. Please do... More

Great drinks, awesome food with relevant prices. Waitress could be more talkative and positive. The area outside could be bit cleaner, plants need some water!
