The Butler’s Pantry Shops are heaven to walk into. We love them all. Modern, bright design and layout, friendly, knowledgeable staff, and most of all, fresh home made foods delivered daily.Eileen Bergin started her first shop in Mount Merrion in 1987. She manned it alone, arriving early each morning to bake breads, pastries and scones.  She also spent hours over the stove, cooking her home made ready to go range which served a busy clientele during and after a hard day’s work. Today the brand may have grown into eight shops and a main production kitchen and kitchen shop in Bray. But that doesn’t mean it’s all been mechanised and computerised. Far from it.  The Butler’s Pantry range is still hand made daily with fresh ingredients by a working team of professional chefs, with love and care for product and end result, and delivered to each shop daily for your guarantee of freshness and total enjoyment. Just the way Eileen wants it. The business has grown over 25 years to become a large concern, losing none of the original one man show dedication and commitment that made it successful in the first place. Jacquie Marsh is now Managing Director, with Eileen a non-executive member of the Board of Directors. Her influence is still huge in the way The Butler’s Pantry range is developed and moves forward.If you don’t fancy cooking, you don’t have to at The Butler’s Pantry shops.  The chefs have done it all for you.  A superb range of ready meals reflect the time of year.  Warm months see lots of fresh salads and light starters and mains. When the chill comes in, find hearty stews, comforting pies and lots more to warm the cockles. Shelf life is short – and customers often ask why. The answer is always that dishes are made fresh every day in small batches, from fresh ingredients, with nothing added but care and time. No life extenders in sight. This is food as good as you would expect to get if you made it yourself at home.The pastry counters at The Butler’s Pantry shops are always a sight to behold.
