Butler's Pantry are genuinely Ireland's premier supplier of ready cooked meals. They are the premier supplier because of one reason - quality. Their food is delicious, the quality is as good as most restaurants. They do have some signature dishes, actually quite a few. Lamb Tagine, Chicken Boscioli (please forgive any misspellings), Shepard's Pie, and many more. I have just... More

Delicious food, yummy cakes, excellent coffee. Ideal place for busy workers who can pop in for a meal which can be cooked back at their home for speed. Always make a beeline for the Sandymount shop whenever I am over in Dublin.

if you are in a rush and have not prepared or planned dinner then visit the Butlers Pantry and you will be spoilt for choice. The selection is amazing and the food prepared to the highest standard. Reasonably priced for the ideal dinner at home without the preparation or cleaning up after

We recently stayed in Clontarf area on a visit to Dublin and decided to bring variety to Sunday lunch. The selection in the Butlers Pantry was excellent, portion size large, and the taste was just perfect. No skimping on meat/fish content- all very good. We totally enjoyed our self styled menu, which was seriously tasty. Might be a bit expensive... More

Bought a Christmas pudding here. Was absolutely tiny. Came in a big box so was very misleading. staff weren't at all helpful. Very expensive for what you get. Grand quality wise but nothing special.

Desserts are very nice including the cookies and buns. Croissants are only available at the weekend and that is disappointing. Coffee however is brewed to a very high strenght and that does not work well.

The one in rathgar has me picking up chocolate nutty squares each time I'm nearby. The people who work there are really pleasant and all the food looks fresh & gorgeous. Well done :)

Let me start off by saying I'm a pastry chef in Dublin. My expectations of desserts are very high but a simple jam and cream sponge - you can't go wrong with - unless you go to Butler's Pantry. I bought a jam and cream sponge from Butlers pantry for my fathers birthday on the way home for work. As... More
