Whilst in Portpatrick my wife and friends visited The Port Pantry for a bite to eat. Lots of choice on the menu with a wide variety of cakes for dessert. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit.

A true gem - a brave life change for the friendly new owners who really deserve success. The cakes are fabulous. If you can catch a table at the weekend evening opening don't miss it - great chef, unpretentious service and delicious food. Can't take your dog in the evening but he will be made very welcome in the day... More

We can't go more than 30 mins without a coffee, we tried most of the places around and this has the best in Port Patrick. Well with a try.

We visited here a couple of times during our stay at the Portpatrick Hotel. This is a cosy cafe that also serves evening meals. The owner is very welcoming and it is quite popular with locals as well as holiday makers. Prices are very reasonable. The food is cooked to order so in busy times there can be a delay.... More

The three of us called in for lunch. Very impressed with the food and pleasant waitress. All other meals we saw looked equally delicious. Highly recommend.

It's pleasant with nice staff and reasonably priced food. Good for tea and cake with nice quirky China cups and saucers. The hot food was so so but may be better in the evenings at weekends.

Our first morning in Portpatrick we decided to start the day with a cooked breakfast at the Port Pantry. We arrived just as it had opened and it soon became full of locals and holiday makers all ready to start the day. The cooked breakfast was excellent and the staff so helpful. They do lunch and early evening meals some... More
