We are massive fans of the Party and all the wonderful team that work there. It is a real food experience in the sense that it is a memorable moment. The food is Dutch cuisine. That fact makes many people baulk at the idea of going there to eat, but that is a mistake. Personally I have been many times over the years to eat at The Pantry, for lunch and for dinner. It has always been a fantastic experience with lots of delicious food. Once you have tried it, you will want to return many times.
