Lovely meal, nice friendly staff, will be returning and telling my friends its well worth a visit. We had an early evening meal but its somewhere I would consider for lunch and perfect if socialising with friends or if on a date night!!

A group of friends and I had a great evening here. We'd been for a drink during a live music night before which was brilliant, but tonight we finally got to taste the food. Our meals were absolutely delicious and the portions were generous which is always good! The atmosphere was great and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommended The Pantry and will certainly be visiting again! 10/10

It's location and decoration belies the wonderful food and great service that are there to enjoy. I am loathe to say how fantastic the experience is, because everyone will pack it out and I won't be able to get a table again!
The menu is restricted (so therefore, they can deliver each meal to a very high standard).
However, there are variations on their theme. For example, if you want a great seafood meal (mussels and clams) with chips, just ask for the starter to be made up to a main.
Lunch is great, and I went back again the following evening for a meal. On 9 November they also had a Jazz duo playing/singing. It was great!!
Then, there's the service. Very very good and top class. The manager, Laura, is efficient (and good looking). Every effort seems to be made to make one feel welcome.
Go away, don't come here. It's wonderful!

Wonderful food, excellent staff and a great atmosphere.
It was a special do so we had 5 starter courses followed by a main meal of wonderful lasagne, then either a large slab of chocolate cake or cheese cake.
Great place for such an event.
Would highly recommend it and hope it will open in the evenings mor eoften soon.

Really enjoyed the Italian tapas, but the seafood pasta was something else - amazing! A little part of Italy in the middle of Bedford. Will definitely be back again soon.
