My wife and I have always enjoyed a nice cup of Tea or Coffee and all that comes with these. We spent many years dreaming of having our own place and building our vision of an ideal hybrid Tea Room / Coffee Shop. We worked very hard to get to a position where if we should find the right property in the right location we would take the leap and open our own cafe. We felt very lucky when the perfect premises came along in the beautiful market town of Ringwood, that we fell in love with during our search.
We now can offer a large range of our favorite stunning Loose Leaf Teas and Coffees. These can be enjoyed within our homely, relaxing, country style atmosphere along with a large selection of New forest fresh baked cakes. In fact we have, where possible, stocked what we can in the way of New Forest products. We have New Forest made Jams, Marmalade’s, Chutneys available to buy off the shelf and within our Menu. We even sell New Forest Spring Water.We are truly independent so therefore have been able to tailor what we offer based on what our customers want. We believe that there’s always time for tea, always time for coffee and time can always be made for a lovely cake treat.
We have a large selection of cakes and we have worked with the local bakers to produce a bespoke (Best Selling) Pantry Rose Cake, an exquisitely delicate sponge cake with real rose essence.
We serve all our Teas in china (as they should be!). We have our own label Tea, The Pantry Breakfast Tea, to suit the traditional English every day tea drinker. We have our own blend of Coffee too, this meets the likes of a huge majority of coffee lovers, a not so bitter coffee with lots of sweet naturally notes.
The Pantry is designed to be a comfortable treat for all to enjoy, not just simply tea or coffee with cake, we also have a lovely selection of breakfasts and lunches along with Cream Teas and Traditional Afternoon Teas (booked in advance). Should you have young children we have also catered for them too with a little cafe area:Teddy Bears Picnic, with menu choices designed with the little ones in mind.
