There appears to be a welcome return on the cards for a popular Ferry Quay restaurant .

The former premises of Pappadums on Soaphouse Lane now has new signage and preparations are being made to reopen.

The Indian restaurant was a Brentford favourite until it was forced to close during the pandemic. An attempted relaunch under new management as a fish bar and curry house did not endure very along and the site was repossessed this Spring since which time it has remained vacant.

In its previous incarnation, Pappadums had won awards and offered authentic dishes from the north and south of India.

We have attempted to contact Pappadums for an update on its plans. The previous management said that it was not involved with the relaunch and believe that it will initially open just as a bar and not serve Indian food.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
