THE COMPANY behind the popular Cosy Club chain is opening a new bar in Chepstow next week, promising a “home from home” for people to enjoy coffees, brunches and dinner.

Pontio Lounge will replace the former Herbert Lewis department store on High Street, with patterned wallpapers, vintage sofas and eclectic artwork providing the backdrop for a variety of “cosy and elegant” drinking and dining spots.

It opens Wednesday, February 7, at 9-11 High Street.

An all-day menu features tapas, salads, burgers and buttermilk chicken and there will be alternative menus for those preferring vegan and gluten-free diets.
