Gordon Ramsay's restaurants

Britain's most outspoken chef

Born in Scotland, Gordon was raised in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, from the age of 5. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, his considerable drive was turned to a career in food.

He later moved to France where he worked in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon. In 1993, Gordon became chef of the newly opened Aubergine. Within 3 years the restaurant was awarded 2 Michelin stars.

Known as much for his no-nonsense attitude and fiery temper as for his food, he is also a major TV personality. Onscreen he’s helped struggling restaurants in Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and uncovered the best local cooking talent in the F Word.

Gordon now has 14 establishments in London and several Michelin stars to his name. So when you’re in town, don’t miss the chance to enjoy a meal from one of the world’s best chefs. Read on for details of his restaurants and pubs.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

Pétrus

Pétrus opened in 2010 under Head Chef Sean Burbidge. It serves impressive modern European food in a contemporary dining room surrounding an impressive 2,000-bottle open wine cellar.

It serves French/Asian cuisine typified by creative dishes like Cornish red mullet, cuttlefish garlic purée and rabbit Bolognese and Peanut butter and cherry jam sandwich, tonka bean cream and dehydrated cherries. Maze Grill next door is a more informal affair with a buzzy dining room and excellent steaks.

Foxtrot Oscar

Modelled on a neighbourhood bistro, Foxtrot Oscar is serves Ramsay’s take on simple comfort food. The Set Lunch and Early Supper Menus are excellent value. Dishes might include English onion soup and Seared organic Scottish salmon with celeriac and gremolata.

Murano

Ramsay’s Italian-inspired restaurant, Murano, is under the helm of Angela Hartnett, famous for her stint at the Michelin-starred Connaught. You’ll find subtle opulence and food like Braised rabbit pappardelle with confit lemons, black olives, mint and rocket and Warm apple terrine with salted caramel sauce and prune purée.

York and Albany

Described as a ‘restaurant, bar, delicatessen’ with a hotel attached, York and Albany serves simple, delicious dishes made with ingredients from chef, Angela Hartnett’s favourite suppliers. Overlooking Regent’s Park, rooms at the hotel are beautifully appointed. Remember to check out Nonna’s deli, selling groceries, hampers and great pizzas.

Pubs

The Narrow in Limehouse, East London; the Devonshire in Chiswick, West London; and The Warrington in Maida Vale, Central London all serve classic British dishes with fresh, seasonal ingredients. They follow a wining formula of great beers and simple food served in historic pubs.
