Gordon Ramsay Summer Set Menus
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.

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.
