Tea Room Review 3 – The Vintage Pantry, Sheffield.


blog3

So we’ve decided, on wet weekends when we can’t really go anywhere, we will visit vintage style tea rooms.

Am I worried that a delicious scone and a generous slice of cake will undo all the good I’ve done so far? Yes, A LITTLE, but only a little. I’m going to up my exercise regime, forgo puddings throughout the week and eat more veggies and salads and REALLY look forward to a delicious afternoon tea a couple of times a month.

Today was wet and miserable so we googled ‘Vintage Tea Rooms in Sheffield’ once again and decided to try ‘The Vintage Pantry’, partly because it was set in an antiques centre and partly because it had great write ups and we liked the ‘shabby chic’ decor!

Once again we ordered an ‘afternoon tea for two’ and we had a lovely big pot of loose leaf tea which gave us several vintage china cupfuls each! The sandwiches, lemon scones, clotted cream and jam came out on a 3 tier vintage cake stand. Also on our cake stand was a small shot glass of jelly and an oreo cookie which we were not expecting, I guess it was a quirky touch which fitted in well with the quirky setting! After we had eaten our sandwiches and scones we selected a large slice of cake each (as part of our afternoon tea) from the counter and the owner kindly put these in a box for us to take home as we were absolutely STUFFED. The afternoon tea was delicious and good value for money at £9.95 each.

The tea-room is small with about 5 tables, and popular, so we would recommend that you call 24 hours in advance and book a time slot and table. The staff are friendly and the owner came over to chat before we left and made us feel most welcome. The menu also has breakfasts and lunch.

I contacted the Vintage Pantry late yesterday evening by messaging their FACEBOOK PAGE and they got back to me very quickly.

We would definitely return and can’t wait to go back and also spend a couple of hours poking around ‘Sheffield Antiques Centre’ where it is located.

  1. Seeing these pictures makes me a little homesick, not that I live very far away but Swedish people have no idea about tea rooms. I like the teapot by the way. Looking forward to seeing your other tea shop pictures

  2. Life without cake? No way! As long as you excercise self control. Lot of wartime cake recepies so it was considered good for morale? Bring back the tea party I say!
