Ruth Hansom takes over the menu at the refurbished Princess of Shoreditch

Taking proper advantage of the lockdown, The Princess of Shoreditch has had something of a revamp while it's been closed so it'll be returning with a new look next month. It's also coming back with a brand new head chef who you may have seen on Great British Menu - Ruth Hansom.

She'll be taking on the menu in the upstairs restaurant with dishes based on British provenance. That'll include:

  • Surrey Docks Courgette Flower Goats Cheese, Honey
  • Isle of Wight Tomato Watermelon, Ribblesdale Curd, Black Garlic
  • Rhug Estate Venison Haunch Tartar Mustard seed, fennel, nasturtium
  • Swaledale Lamb Rump Summer Squash, juniper, mint
  • Norfolk Blackleg Chicken Baby artichoke, turnip, lovage
  • St Ewes’ Yolk and Watercress Ravioli tender broccoli, lord of the hundreds, morel
  • Hedgerow Berry Souffle Elderflower, Forty Hall Vineyard Sparkling
  • Garden Ginger set custard Gooseberry, Yorkshire Rhubarb, Sorrel

We have to say - the menu does sound pretty great. A bit like a staycation tour of the UK, but with food.

It's also backed up by a bar menu that includes snacks like Ewes Farm Black Pudding Scotch Egg Fennel Mayo, Rhubarb and - deep breath - Norfolk Black Leg Chicken Liver Parfait, Pressed thigh with leek, date and pistachio, Sautéed Hearts, Crispy Skin Butter, Toasted Barley Loaf, Chicory and Apple. That's one hell of a bar snack.
