Gumbs, who headed the restaurant for five years, took to Instagram to confirm his departure – stating that the “time has come” for him to start a “new chapter” in his professional life.
It is run in partnership with chef and TV personality Shaun Rankin who previously launched the first Ormer site in 2013 in Jersey – however that venue has since closed and is now run under a new name.
Gumbs said: “Ormer Mayfair and I are parting ways keeping each other dear to our hearts. I loved Ormer right from its inception, I gave it my passion but also sweat, blood and dedication .
“The past 5 years were filled with joy, moments of fulfillment and professional pride. I am happy to have contributed towards Ormer’s growth and wish them continued success.”
He added: “My continued promise -my heart is always worn on my sleeve. Wherever I go, I will always bring my passion, dedication, love and respect to food in efforts to create long lasting culinary memories. And I am very excited to explore new opportunities and develop my next culinary chapter.”
