The Pudding Pantry, Nottingham


They say word-of-mouth is one of the best ways to get noticed – and who am I to contest. This lovely new little bakery/coffee shop was recommended by a friend, and now here I am doing the same for you!

Situated in Trinity Square, just a minutes’ walk each from the Victoria Centre and Cornerhouse, The Pudding Pantry opened up about 2 months ago, and is an oasis of calm amid all the shops, bustling restaurants and busy streets.

Inside the decor is bright and fresh – it reminds me of being at the seaside, with soft blues and greys, and lots of white painted wood.

There are also plenty of quirky touches – as any good tea room should have!

And what an array of sweet treats there were – on display in the windows; in and around the main glass-fronted counter, we were absolutely spoilt for choice! From pastries to muffins to sliced cakes to scones… they really do have the whole lot.

My cake camarade opted for a scone with jam and cream – but was asked did she mind that it would be about 10 minutes as they were freshly baked to order? What a treat!

And the warm summer weather tempted me into something fresh and fruity – the amazing looking, sounding, and definitely tasting blackberry and mint cake. It was divine!

So consider my word well and truly spread – definitely a tea room to try next time you are in the area!

    It looks so good! And the pantry too 🙂 I would love to go there if I ever visit the area 😀


  2. My sister lives up in Nottingham and I think I will have to give this place a visit next time I go and visit her! 🙂

    love the sound of blackberry and mint as a flavour pairing, I will definitely be visiting next time i’m in Notts, thanks for the heads up! 🙂


  4. I just wanted to add that this place always has a GF option (or two). I had the GF courgette and lime cake the other week and it was the best GF cake I’ve ever had. Bit of a nightmare it being so close to the town office… Tests the willpower!


  5. Hmmm… Tried to comment something about how brilliant the Gf selection is too, seems to have failed. Same point though!
