The Hambrough’s sister restaurant The Pond Cafe is located in the beautiful village of Bonchurch. Head Chef Joanne Bennett (formerly of The Hermitage) has settled herself into place since her arrival in November 2013. Jo’s Menus feature Italian-influenced rustic dishes and her homemade breads and cakes are to die for.
With the outside terrace overlooking the picturesque duck pond, this restaurant is the perfect place to while away the hours. The menu consists of delicious home made cakes and coffees, light lunch dishes with home made breads, salads, platters and stonebaked pizzas, a set Menu of the Day, as well as an Italian inspired a la carte menu in the evening. Sunday lunches are extremely popular so early booking is essential.
Pop along for Aperitivo Hour between 6pm and 7pm for two-for-one cocktails and selected wines, accompanied by Jo’s delicious complimentary crostini.
Opening hours: 10.30am – 3pm and 6pm – 9.30pm Thursday to Monday. Closed all day Tuesday and Wednesday.
