For THE BEST GIN, COCKTAILS & FEASTING BOARDS 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 finger food alongside delicious cocktails and gin serves. 

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

Our new street food style menu allows you to try a bit of everything. Share with friends and family, or not. Order as much or as little as you want…our menus are suited for the big biters, the small biters and everything else in between.

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.
