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.

Ramsay’s first years in the kitchen were spent training under culinary luminaries such as Marco Pierre White and Albert Roux in London. 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.
