Inspired by the finest street food in the world, Pondicherry's dishes range from delicately spiced to aromatic and full flavoured.

Influences from all four corners of the vast Indian subcontinent have helped to create a menu that appeals to every palate



Newly refurbished, Pondi is back with a BANG!!

We have been busy during lockdown to ensure that Pondi will provide a safe, relaxed and stylish environment that's better than ever.

We have created a couple of private dining booths which look out to the main restaurant.

Elsewhere we have cleverly reduced the number of tables to maintain social distancing without impacting on the atmosphere that our customers love.

... and we have have been busy with the paintbrush - as you will see with the chap on the right!


We can't wait to see you!

 It's great to know that this year we can celebrate Christmas with family, friends and colleagues.

Here at Pondi we'll continue to serve our A La Carte menu right up until Christmas Eve and on CHRISTMAS DAY we are serving a very special menu.


At Pondi there is nothing more important to us than keeping everyone in our restaurant safe, whether guest or team member and we have liaised with our local council to ensure that they are happy that Pondi has done everything it can to ensure everyone’s safety while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere and still delivering the Pondi experience.

We have decided to have fewer tables so that a degree of social distancing can be maintained; so, while walk-ins will always be welcome, fewer covers mean it is always safer to reserve in advance. 

Please arrive on time for your reservation and let us know in good time if you are unable to make it.

We can only hold tables for 15 minutes – with a significantly reduced number of covers to begin with, “no shows” hit us particularly hard, but we don’t want to resort to taking deposits with bookings
