Infused with the essence of British and French culinary traditions and shaped by a life spent in the beauty of Pembrokeshire, Thomas embodies the culinary vision of chef Tom Simmons. A proud Welsh native, Tom's deep rooted respect and passion for nature, quality produce, and the art of cooking have been integral to his journey with food from a young age. Fond in the heart of Pontcanna, a gorgeous suburb just ten minutes outside of Cardiff’s city centre, surrounded by town houses, quaint markets, small business shops and lush parks, Thomas fits in well.

Tom thanks his fond memories of exploring farmers' markets in Pembrokeshire, foraging in the picturesque West Wales countryside, and harvesting vegetables from his mother's garden for forging a profound connection to Welsh ingredients, serving as the cornerstone of Tom's culinary philosophy and the inspiration behind Thomas in Pontcanna. After three years of showcasing the finest Welsh produce in the heart of London, Tom and his partner Lois were thrilled to return to their roots and unveil their inaugural restaurant in Wales.

'Lois and I are incredibly excited to share our love for food and local produce with our fellow Welsh residents. This has been a dream of ours since the inception of the London restaurant and a lifelong aspiration of mine as a chef. Welcoming guests to experience good, homegrown food in Wales is a dream come true for us.'

Thomas' menu is great for those looking to celebrate a special occasion, but also for those just ooking to pop in for a light lunch. The fish and chips is a must try for all of those visiting Thomas for the first time, and on the weekends, as the lights dim down, bar snacks and small plates to share are always popular.
