Yes that’s right we turn the grand old age on 3 on the 15th of October, we can not believe it either! Seriously where has the time gone?
To mark this milestone we have some very exciting plans…
The Pantry 3rd Birthday Celebration Evening
7pm Friday 17th October
5 courses plus a glass of Prosecco £30 per person
The evening will kick off with a drinks reception from 7pm to 8pm which will include the launch of artwork for us by fantastic local artist Emily Jarvis. Emily and her family have been loyal and very positive supporters of The Pantry so it seemed right that we embarked on a project together; we will keep the exact nature of the project Emily is doing for us a surprise for the event, but what we will say is that we are delighted and feel very privileged to be working with her as she is an up and coming superstar who has been featured in Elle and Hapers Bazaar Magazine. I have personally fallen in love with several of her collections, why not get yourself in the mood for the evening by checking out Emily’s portfolio on her website..
Having enjoyed a complimentary glass or two of Prosecco kindly sponsored by our wine supplier Corney and Barrow we will then invite our guests to sit down at 8pm for a delicious 5 course meal at only £30 per head.

Mini Farmers Market
Saturday the 18th of October from 10am to 3pm
We love inviting our suppliers to offer tastings to our customers and this time we decided go one better with a mini farmers market to celebrate our birthday.
We have some fantastic producers already confirmed including our award winning local distillery The English Spirit Company from a year 4 miles away in Dullingham. They will be offering a taste of their marvellous Dr. J’s Gin, which literally flys off of our shelves as well as their quirky and quality flavoured Vodkas and of course their international award winning Old Salt Rum.
Also confirmed is the Suffolk based Scarlett & Mustard who produce the most amazing range of sauces, dressings and funky curds! A husband and wife team that steer clear of preservatives and use as much local ingredients as possible all cleverly packaged with eye catching branding, they even found their way on to the shelves in Selfridges.. Go Suffolk!
Have you tried our raspberry jam? If you have then then you are sure to be hooked, there isn’t a day that goes by with out one of our customers raving about it. Now we can not take the credit as it is loving made for us by Nikki’s Home Made Preserves. Nikki will be at our birthday market with her full range, there might be a jam or chutney that rivals her raspberry jam!!
We look forward to seeing you all there,
Love Anne-Marie x
