Gordon Ramsay's £20 cheese board labelled 'insulting' by furious customer

Gordon Ramsay has sparked outrage once again after a furious diner slammed a “preselected” restaurant cheese board as “insulting”.

The Scottish celebrity chef, 53, has had to bear the brunt of recent criticism after the price of a breakfast fry-up and ‘child’s portion’ of steak and chips were slammed.

The latest disappointed customer was Simon, who visited Gordon’s three Michelin star restaurant in London.

He left a scathing two-star TripAdvisor review and claimed he was “insulted” after receiving a “preselected” cheese board, the Daily Star reports.

He also blasted the canapé as “boring” and other dishes as “lacking punch”.

The review read: “I visited GR hospital road on a Friday night with friends for a special treat.

“I have been lucky enough to have eaten here several times over the past few years and have, when asked the question where has been your best ever meal?

“Happily and confidently said GR hospital road by a country mile.

“After Fridays meal I feel I will no longer be able to recommend it as a venue.

“The taster menu is verging on boring compared to other places around town – there was no stand out dish – no memorable smell when you sniff your food to take it all in before tucking in and no stand out memorable food.

“The canapés were, by today’s 3 star restaurants, verging on boring – something I could have made at home not the first thing to eat in a 3 star restaurant.

“I sadly feel this restaurant has lost its way – it needs a good look at what it’s rivals are doing and needs to refresh the menu – adding a sorrel sauce to the lobster ravioli instead of the perfect shellfish bisque is not exactly cutting-edge.

“I also feel £20 a head for a preselected cheese board was insulting – If the best GR can come up with is a slice of blue, compt, goats cheese and Normandy cream cheese all of which were bland and lacking punch – what is the world coming to ?

“I hope they read this and ask what is going wrong and change soon because until I hear there has been a major shake up I will not return.

“However service as always was perfect once I’d asked for the food to be slowed down it was coming thick and fast to begin with.”

But it’s not all bad news for Gordon, as other customers praised the service, leaving the restaurant 2,085 ‘Excellent’ reviews on Tripadvisor.

One person wrote: “Could not fault the food at all, one of the best meals we have ever had”.

Another said: “I’m guessing Gordon has a talent for picking and motivating great staff, in addition to his culinary gifts?”
