The Pudding Pantry

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

One of the things I love about Nottingham is its impressive array of quirky and independent places to eat and drink. Since my time in Nottingham is soon coming to an end, my flatmates and I made a bit of a bucket list of places we want to visit before we move back to our respective home towns in 10 weeks and we ticked the first thing off on Friday by treating ourselves to an indulgent afternoon at The Pudding Pantry. I've got such a sweet tooth so the thought of tucking into some naughty treats was the perfect way to kick off our challenge (did we mention we sacked off the gym because we were too hungry to go after? Oops, but it was a Friday!) 

Located in a central part of Nottingham in Trinity Square, the independent cafe oozes home comfort complete with cute interior design and welcoming staff. It brings together three friends with an insatiable desire to provide food and coffee to keep customers coming back - an ethos which is clearly reflected in the entire eating experience. Serving up breakfast, brunch, lunch and sweet treats, the menu is any food lover's dream and leaves you utterly spoilt for choice. I decided that because it was Friday it was basically the weekend which meant I could completely and utterly treat myself. I went for the cream tea which was comprised of a delicious home-baked scone, strawberry jam and clotted cream, topped off with a delicious pot of tea, made with fresh tea leaves. All of the cakes, puddings and desserts are baked-in house which is what made the warm salted caramel brownie irresistible. Which, by the way, was by the far the best brownie I've ever tasted. 

Abby started with the cheese and pineapple chutney sandwich which defeated her in itself. The bread was lovely and thick while the cheese certainly wasn't used sparingly. The pineapple chutney perfectly complemented the sandwich which was served with a small salad and a handful of crisps. Abby joined me in the salted caramel brownie indulgence which made me feel a little less guilty and it's safe to say we were both utterly stuffed, but incredibly impressed, afterwards. Georgia is gluten and dairy-free so she opted for a pulled pork sandwich on gluten free bread with no butter which got a glowing review. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and we weren't rushed in the slightest. There was quite possibly far too much on the menu to choose from which means we'll have to go back to see if the rest is just as good - what a shame!
