Tea for Two

The Pantry, Swanwick
This small boutique-style 'delicatessen' is a tea room and bakery; selling hand made pastries and desserts, afternoon teas and much more.

Situated in the small town of Swanwick, this tea room is a great escapism from the hectic busy towns surrounding it. A family-run business, you get a real sense of unity and friendly atmosphere at this place. Even the decor imitates a home, with domestic features decorating its interior, the staff here treat you like their own family.

Visiting here with friends recently, I experienced first hand what a great and welcoming experience this was. My one and only criticism was the size, which struck me to be rather small, with approximately 8 small tables inside tables were arranged closely together. This, however, didn't seem to affect my experience in any way, nor did it seem intrusive, but I imagine on busy occasions in particular, this may be an issue for some who visit.

For those more colder nights just like my visit here, a warm selection of jacket potatoes, hot pies and pasties are available, all homemade. What's more, costs are extremely great value here, with cakes and pastries costing as little as £1.50 and an afternoon tea only £15 for two, including a pot of speciality tea, freshly made sandwiches, a scone each, and two cake slices each. I, however, opted for the hot plate option of homemade cornish pasty, served with homemade gravy. This filling dish was only £6 and tasted divine, with a waiting time of only 5 minutes. The Pantry is always dedicated to their local and regular customers, so it's no surprise that they offer a 'grab and go' service, great for those nearby who want to take a bite to eat home with them. If you're not a resident close by however, a small charge will be added for a dine-in service.

With Mother's Day slowly approaching, I'd highly recommend a visit here for a sumptuous afternoon tea and great service. To book a table or enquire within, you can visit their site at
