The Wood Pantry is a spacious cafe with chic rustic decor. They offer a number of options for those on a vegetarian and/or gluten free diet.
Between us, my friend and I were particularly challenging dietary wise as I’m gluten free, and she’s gluten and lactose intolerant (and also pregnant!). Gluten free options on the menu looked sparse (none are marked on the Brunch & Lunch menu at all unfortunately) but the manager and waitstaff did very well by us. We were able to order both the Grilled Chicken Burger and Steak Sandwich. We had both on gluten free bread with chips, and there were happy to have the aioli on the side as we were sharing (and raw eggs is a no no when pregnant). Everything was tasty, fresh, and promptly devoured.
We also enjoyed a Chai Latte and Iced Coffee between us, as well as a couple of very tasty, juicy Acai smoothies (note: ask for no oats on top with this if you’re gluten free).
My little man (2 years old) enjoyed the chicken nuggets and chips from the kids menu. I was happy to see some healthy options here, such as eggs or cheese on white toast (though the option of brown toast would be ideal – I’m sure this wouldn’t be an issue to modify on request though).
There are bathrooms onsite, but one missing kid-friendly amenity was change table. High chairs were provided though and there was pram access.
The Wood Pantry is ideally located with activities nearby for kids (and adults!) of all ages, with a Chipmunks Playland & Cafe, M9 Laser Skirmish, Bowling Alley, Swim School, Sports Centre and Indoor Climbing Gym right next door.
I would happily return and recommend this cafe!
