Welcome to The Pantry

Opened on 7th September 2019, The Pantry is a Coffee Shop, Eatery and Venue located within the historic Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent.

We are currently open and following the latest Covid-19 guidelines. Please find out more here.

The Pantry was nominated for Taste of Kent Awards in 2020 for Kent Coffee Shop or Tea Room of the Year and Kent Hospitality Business of the Year in 2021.

We have 42 seats and a mixture of 2, 4 and 6 seat tables to ensure that your group can be comfortable whatever its size.

We strive to use good quality, local suppliers (or make our own products where we can) and we’re proud to be located where we are, Britain’s largest and best preserved Napoleonic Fort. Fort Amherst is itself a busy tourist attraction and event venue that is often featured in films and TV shows.

As well as providing a daily menu, we can also supply catering for events both within our own premises or external and host regular weekly evenings for community groups. If you have a group that needs a home then get in touch.

We’re only a five minute walk from the town centre and bus station or ten minutes from Chatham Train Station. We also have ample parking on site if you choose to visit by car.
