Gordon Ramsay Summer Set Menus

gtrekker2003 Jun 4, 2009 02:40 AM

I've been looking at the set-menus at Gordon Ramsay's The Narrow, Devonshire, and Warrington. Been wanting to try a Gordon Ramsay restaurant and wondering if any of these are worthwhie. They seem to be offering a 2-course menu for £18.50 or a 3-course menu for £22.50. Thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    they're not really Ramsay restaurants in the terms you probably associate with.

    I'm sure Murano has a very good deal on at the moment. as does Maze.

      Agree with Batfink these are pubs not restaurants . Another suggestion is the £30 for lunch at GR at Claidge's, go on Sunday it is very deluxe. But watch out for extras like coffee, they push the bill.

      the lunch menu at murano is great value - £25 for 3 courses. the food and service are excellent.

      i was unimpressed with claridges - the food is very safe, a bit too heavy for my tastes and the setting is very formal and old-fashioned.

        I liked Claridge's because it was formal, and proper, and old fashioned. After all isn't that the reason to go to a grand old "palace" hotel? True the food is safe, but that is a general criticism of Ramsay, however, again there are times when it suits my mood, or the occasion. I would disagree on the "heavy" comment I found every dish we tried to be well balanced.

        Did you really think it was poor, or was it not what you expected/wanted? There is a lot difference between the two, although both result in a disappointing meal.

        One of the good things about Ramsay is that he does have a range of styles across his restaurant brands. Whilst the food is relatively safe it tends to deliver to a pretty high standard. OK they are not the best in each of their categories but they are up there with them.

        The price at Maze (looked it up) is £28.50 for four courses. That's well worth it in my opinion, although the courses are small. I'd avoid the pubs... better food to be had elsewhere from what I've read.
