The all-day, breakfast and brunch menu will also include Clarence Court Eggs with Chorizo and Kale baked inside a Squash feature, along with U Dale salt cured Duck Breast with Jasmin Raisin, Turnip and Apricot, and Valrhona Chocolate Fondant.
Pomona’s restaurant director Jay Decker, said: “We want to firmly establish Pomona’s as the go to foodie restaurant in Notting Hill, offering the very best locally sourced, ethically produced British cuisine, I’m delighted to have Ruth onboard, a chef that mirrors our values. With her arrival, a table here will be the hottest ticket in the neighbourhood, and I’m sure our local clientele and new customers, will be bowled over by what’s on offer.”
Hansom said “Over the last month I’ve been working with Jay and the Pomona’s team to enhance their culinary offering, injecting a twist into the traditional menus. Guests can expect a relaxed, fine-dining experience, with sharing plates inspired by the land, sea and earth, featuring produce sourced from across the British Isles. I’m super excited about my future with the restaurant and the fantastic opportunity this new role offers back in London.”
