"Hand made Delicious recipes from our kitchen to yours"
The Butler’s Pantry was founded in 1987 by Eileen Bergin in response to the changing trends in Irish lifestyles and eating habits. Eileen opened the first shop on Mount Merrion Avenue where she started the day cooking and baking great tasting breads, meals, deserts and finished the day selling the fare to local clientele and the hungry customers on their way home in the evenings. The Butler’s Pantry reputation grew very quickly as the place to go for really tasty ‘home style’ food, food that your mother might have made at home once upon a time!
The commitment to premium quality natural food has grown and intensified as the business has developed and expanded. All dishes are made using only the freshest ingredients. There is no addition of any artificial additives, preservatives, stabilisers or any other ‘funnies’ in our food. Our dishes and recipes change with the seasons and availability of fresh ingredients to ensure the very best in taste and flavour
Today our promise is still the same
"Hand made delicious recipes from our kitchen to yours"
On the day we opened The Butler’s Pantry on the 17th. of November we sold 12 meals, some breads and a few cookies. Now The Butler’s Pantry are selling in excess of 1600 meals a day, as well as a full range of artisan style breads and a vast array of deserts and healthy indulgences!
Today The Butler’s Pantry is the national brand leader in premium fresh food to go. This can be quite simply attributed to our focus on ‘special’
Our food is all prepared using only fresh, natural ingredients and it is all prepared by hand by a team of professional individuals.
