“Tasty fare and lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

I've just taken my 2 year old grandson for tea and tea cakes at the pantry and the staff were lovely, the tea was excellent and the large tea cakes were very tasty. A lovely tea house on Dorchester's main shopping street.

“Good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Had a nice latte and a slice of Victoria sponge which was yummy. Friendly service and nice to have an independent to pop in to when in town instead of the ever increasing chains.

“Cranberry Bakewells are a must!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Visiting family in Dorchester and popped into The Pantry for morning coffee as a welcome change from the well known chain up the road! The staff were very friendly and efficient, the coffee was lovely and all the cakes looked fabulous. I can only speak for the bakewell I had which was delicious. Will be sure to pop in again on my next visit to Dorset.

“New, but not outstanding.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Popped in here with some friends while shopping this weekend. It looks like a new venture with some delightfully keen bunch of ladies running the show.
The tea and cakes were more than exceptable but the ambience and decoration are yet to be brought to an exciting level at present it's just bland nice but bland.
