Our Staff’s Top Walks for January

“At the Butler’s Pantry we believe the key to good eating in 2021 should be free of past restrictions and involve eating healthy nourishing food cooked from scratch using fresh whole ingredients”

The past year has been tough for all of us so now we invite our customers to join our Reset 2021 Initiative. Our positive policy aims to kick-start a New Year of eating well and getting outdoors by focusing on fresh, wholesome, nourishing ingredients. All our meals are made, using the best seasonal Irish produce available, with no additives or preservatives.

Our Reset 2021 Initiative will make it easy for all our customers to eat well and enjoy a delicious and healthy start to the New Year.
