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, small plates 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! 

The small plates menu is perfect for sampling individually or as sharing plates between friends. With an additional (large plate) burger menu, there's plenty to choose from. 

And 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. 

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 10 or less - just turn up! To book for 10 or more, please click here.
