For THE BEST GIN, COCKTAILS & PLATTERS
IN TOWN

Locally Sourced PRODUCE × PERFECTLY PREPARED

Located in the heart of Newport city centre, The Pod offers something a little different...

Opened in Nov 2017 and located on the banks of the River Usk, The Pod is a unique watering hole designed to offer tasty street-food style sharing boards and delicious cocktails and gin serves. 

With it's gritty, New York inspired interior style, created by So Exclusive Interiors, The Pod offers a casual, relaxed dining experience aimed at making guests feel like they could be in any city in the world! 

Our dinner menu is perfect for enjoying a variety of dishes or sharing finger licking food amongst friends. Our lunch menu offers lighter, healthier dishes for those trying to be good and for those who don’t care - check out our NEW Burger Wednesdays!

Don't forget to sample the huge range of gin available (at the last count - there were over 80!). Alternatively, ask one of the very talented bar team to suggest and create a pairing to compliment your food choice…they love a challenge!

With a cocktail list that changes weekly (including mocktails), a great selection of whisk(e)ys, vodka, beers and wines...there's certainly something to wet all whistles.

No reservation is needed for parties of less than 8 - just turn up! To book for 8 or more, please click here.
