My reading suggests that the pantry and the rest of the butler's domain were on the same floor as the dining room. That would make the pantry far from the kitchen because the kitchen was not on the same floor as the dining room. Which was why it was such a hassle to get the food to the table before it got cold. But then I've read about pantries and everyone seems to place them directly beside the kitchen. Confusion!
