Pomona's is what would happen if a David Hockney painting came to life: picture chic 60s vibes a la Bigger Splash, Miami Beach tones and the cool kids to go with it. Visiting Pomonas is a feast for the eyes, like entering some kind of dream world that has a permanent insta filter going on. The decor is really what sells this place, pastel yellows and mint coupled with splashes of teal, orange and zebra print. I must be honest, first impressions of service were not great, we'd been there an hour before I complained and we were finally able to place our food order. However, I am prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt that this was just a teething problem as they really did make an effort to atone their errors with a free drink each and extra special attention from then on. We visited for a Sunday lunch and it really did prove to be a great spot for it, picking up our spirits on a gloomy rainy day with the summery glow of its interiors. We sat there for hours and there was no pressure to leave, which was nice. They pitch their menu as 'healthy' I wouldn't quite say chicken and waffles smothered in maple syrup is healthy as such but it tasted bloody good (although not quite to the standard of those in the states). Juices are delicious (especially the chia fix) if a little pricey. Maybe not a regular spot, but I do recommend checking out this new joint. I can imagine it will be popular come summer when the outdoor terrace will be in full swing. I will certainly pay it another visit and hope to then boost my review to four stars.

We booked a table for lunch, and after about half an hour had to walk out to find somwhere decent to eat. Service was dreadful. No vegetarian main cources apart from salads.  AVOID

We all love the Commander, the food is so fresh and great daily choices, the outside seating is lovely and has blankets to keep you cosy! The fish bar always looks good and it has a great range of drinks, cocktails and wines to suit all budgets. They have various offers on that they put on FB so you can keep upto date.
