The Pantry at Dovecot
Creative healthy lunches and great coffee at this attractive city centre location, formerly a Victorian baths, now a tapestry studio and art gallery.
This former Victorian swimming pool, converted into a tapestry studio and gallery, has a spacious modern feel that still retains much of its original architectural beauty and grandeur. Well-loved Stockbridge eatery The Pantry are now delivering their familiar and dependable produce here, making it a food stop-off well worth remembering in the city centre. Buddha bowls, from a protein option to a vegan sunshine buddha, are a breath of fresh air on the lunch scene. Fibre buddha, with brown rice and crayfish alongside artichoke heart and greens, is satisfyingly healthy and hearty. Avocado open sandwich staples come with pick-and-mix bread options, including rye and sour, with extras such as ham, beetroot or shrimp. Lunch traditionalists will likely be happy with the soup of the day while the cake selection, including a white chocolate granola bar or parsnip and hazelnut option, is hard to resist.
