Our award-winning 1876 Empress of India restaurant has a chic contemporary feel blending classical elegance with modern tones and colours. Enjoy Indian tastes and flavours carefully garnered from another age, a celebration of the imperial fusion so desired by Queen Victoria, the Empress of India after whom the restaurant is named. The cuisine and the ambience are truly unique, a must for those who adore spicy flavours with an all-encompassing menu to suit every palette including vegetarian and vegan.
If stylish informality is what you feel like at the end of the day then the Ponsbourne Brasserie offers a seasonal British menu using local produce in a contemporary, relaxed setting. Lighter dishes with no compromise on quality have a distinctly continental flavour and presentation on small plates. Dine outside on the terrace on a beautiful summer’s evening and enjoy spectacular views.
If you would like space and privacy then the unique setting of one of Ponsbourne’s pods is perfect for those who crave peace and quiet for an intimate conversation, a business meeting over dinner or a special occasion with friends. Beautifully situated overlooking the landscaped gardens, each pod can seat up to four people with your choice of drinks and food brought to you by hotel staff. The pods are fully enclosed so you will not be troubled by the weather but the full height windows allow you to enjoy the scenery and views to maximum effect. There is a Bluetooth connection allowing you to use your mobile or other devices to play music to enhance your evening.
All of the restaurants at Ponsbourne offer a full menu designed to cater for vegetarian and vegan diners. If you have any special dietary requirements or allergies, then our staff will be only too pleased to discuss these with you.
