Good food, good atmosphere, great service, average coffee and slightly expensive
It’s a great place to chill out, outdoor or indoor. When we were there, naturally being in an Arts Centre, there was a great solo guitarist with an awesome voice singing. The staff were also friendly. Food is great although a little pricey. It’s right next to the field so our children had a great time running on the grass and playing with the ready footballs as I enjoyed a coffee.

Had a nice evening at The Pantry catching up with friends over a meal. We (three of us) ordered a starter, two mains and a side to share, and every dish was great. The the grain bowl is a good choice, especially if you’re looking for vegan options. Air-conditioned inside seating if you’re not here for the kids’ play area.
