      A favorite for years. Good food, friendly staff. Just writing about it makes me want an apple blackberry pie. The shop makes it terribly convenient to pick up fun snacks and extra tidbits for later as well.

      It is fun to see everything British. It is one of my favorites. The shop is the best part. The fish and chips are what they are known for.

      I've been going to the British Pantry for years, the food is excellent (especially fish-n-chips) and the waitresses have been there forever. They are brisker than American staff but I find them pleasant and helpful. The high tea is nice but lacking in savory sandwiches (they just do cucumber sandwiches). However the baked treats and fruit pies make up for it! The tea is always hot and the food tasty and filling.

      The British Pantry is one of may favorite places to spend time with tea-minded friends. They provide a bevy of both loose and bag teas (step into the shop if you want to choose 'Off Menu' from the tea canisters), and a good variety of solid British fare whether you want a snack or a filling lunch. I have a hard time avoiding the stilton burger or the eccles cakes. They bake all their goods in the bakery next door, where you can also take home tea, china, and imported British foods. The atmosphere is very British traditional: no chiffon lace or teddy bears, more library shelves and Royal Family memorabilia. Tea arrives at your table in a knitted cozy, with milk and an extra port of hot water on request. They also provide a British Pub experience next door if you want to bring someone who is a little put off at 'going to frou-frou tea.' The menus are extremely similar. During the lunch rush, parking in front is difficult, but there is more in the back. Going to the British Pantry has been a warm, happy place for me, my friends, and family for several years.

      I finally got back to The British Pantry for traditional English afternoon tea...cucumber sandwiches, scone, fruit and bakewell tart. Everything was tasty and the service excellent. My non-tea friends enjoyed their offerings as well as a trek through the great gift shop. I look forward to a return visit. Sharron de Montigny Tea Rooms Northwest

      Traditional British tea room. Great selection of pastry items and a wonderful selection of British, South African goods. Staff is warm and friendly. Tea scones are the best in Seattle. Look forward to the new Pub opening!

      We love the food and products this store has, the baked goods are excellent. The service in the restraunt however are poor, we seem to always be waiting to be served water after asking several times, and the waitress isn't friendly either. For the most part the help in the store are nice, but they need to learn about the goods they carry. When I asked if they had any wine gums he looked at me with a blank stare and had never heard of them. We will definately return just because my husband loves the custard tarts and sausage rolls.

      This authentic British eatery environment is warm and relaxing, not pretentious nor ornate. The food is delicious and served with cheer and warmth. I particularly enjoyed the salad of fresh greens with creamy dill dressing and the houseblend tea. The menu pricing is very reasonable as well. The shop is chock full of British specialites, from teapots to black currant licorice. If you want to experience an authentic London eatery, the British Pantry will take you there.

      Everyone I've brought to the Britsh Pantry loves it. Reminds me of the tea rooms I saw in britain, not overstuffed and over-flowered, but a warm, inviting place to have a hot pot of good tea and a meal with a friend. The scones melt in your mouth. The other half of the establishment is a bakery and shop, where you can take away all kinds of fresh baked goods, or stock up on British teas and treats. Service is friendly and attentive. Perfect for warming up on a grey day.
