After reading a lot of positive reviews of this restaurant, we (me, my wife and three kids) first looked for the Port Pantry when we visited Portpatrick. It was late afternoon (4am), so time for an afternoon tea with some delicious scones (we hoped).
The reception was rather negative, we even asked if they were closing up so we would not disturb them in the process... But we could stay and we selected a pot of tea and five scones.
The scones were quickly thrown on a plate, the china was hastily shovelled on a tray. The table was dirty and the lady of the house reluctantly cleaned it (after asking twice). Two of five cups were dirty, and the scones were the worst we have eaten in our three week stay in the UK (and we tested several).
Furthermore there was an awkward smell in the restaurant, that was really not inviting to stay long.
Too bad we had this negative experience, hopefully for them it was just bad luck for us, but maybe avoid a late afternoon tea in the Port Pantry.
