In a stroke of forward thinking genius, P&O famously abandoned the traditional atrium buffet concept, and introduced cruisers to a brand new era of dining. Goodbye trays, lines and lacklustre food. Hello boutique, artisan inspired venues that serve up individually plated meals.
Featuring eight unique stations, The Pantry is essentially an upmarket food hall serving up a smorgasbord of delights for every palate. Here’s a glimpse at what’s on offer…
Treat yourself to a flavour bomb with an exotic dish from the Curry House. From India, Thailand and Singapore to Malaysia, South Africa and the Caribbean, there’s steaming bowls of deliciousness for every taste. Amp up your dish with freshly baked oriental breads, tantalisingly sweet chutneys, creamy raitas and tangy pickles.
Hook’s Fish and Chips
What better way to celebrate being at-sea than by digging into a perfectly crispy plate of fish and chips. No one does it better than the chefs at Hook’s Fish and Chips, who serve up everything from traditional battered fillets to gourmet ‘catch of the day’ specials like salt and pepper squid, lemon pepper calamari rings and paella. Oh, and did we mention that the gorgeous ‘shabby chic’ inspired décor will have design buffs swooning.
Looking for a sweet escape? Make a beeline for the Sugar Bar, where in-house patissiers whip up an indulgent selection of buttery pastries, beautifully baked cakes and artisan individual desserts. Open from mid-morning until late at night, it’s the perfect place to get your at-sea sugar fix!
Kettle & Bun
Keep things cool and casual by hitting up the Kettle & Bun for inspired sandwiches, homemade soups and oh so crunchy salads. Think freshly prepared fillings and ultra-soft breads, made to order. Perfect for passengers in search of something light, yet utterly delicious.
While P&O caters wonderfully to vegetarians, the Fat Cow is definitely somewhere to avoid if you’re not a fan of meat. Serving up a kaleidoscope of juicy goodness, there’s succulent carvings, tender roast chicken, sizzling roast pork racks, legs of lamb, melt-in-your-mouth beef scotch fillets and cured hams. All sourced from a curated line-up of producers, to ensure an authentic farm-to-plate experience. The amazing range of rustic home-style side dishes and condiments makes the whole place a fantastic option for lunch, or dinner.
