Gordon Ramsay has come under fire for charging a whopping £31.50 for fish and chips at his new restaurant.
The TV chef, 54, has priced a piece of gurnard fried in cider at £24.50 while a portion of chips is on the menu for £7 at The River Restaurant in London.
The upscale eatery is due to open on October 11 in the fancy five-star Savoy Hotel.

According to the website, the ‘stylish and relaxed all-day dining restaurant’ offers panoramic views of the River Thames and ‘showcases the very best shellfish and seafood the UK has to offer’.
On Friday Gordon shared a snap of the fish and chips on his Instagram but many were unimpressed with the price in the comments section.
One woman wrote: ‘Rather eat my local chippy. At least it’s not kids’ portions.’

Another user joked: ‘Maybe one day if I win the lottery’.
‘£25 for that fish! Rip off, I could eat for a week for that,’ wrote a third.
However, some of his supporters leapt to his defence and said they were excited to try the cuisine at The River Restaurant.
‘A lot of jealous comments on this thread. If you don’t like his food, cost, portions then follow those you aren’t jealous of and leave those who appreciate good quality food to enjoy it,’ wrote one woman.

MailOnline has contacted Gordon Ramsay’s representatives for further comment.
It comes after it was reported earlier this month the chef and restaurateur has further amassed his fortune by £6million over the pandemic.
Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance – which was axed after just one series – Gordon, Gino and Fred: Roadtrip, and new Fox series Next Level Chef are among those TV stints that have bumped up his bank balance by an astonishing figure.
His Studio Ramsey production firm did not stop at churning out a range of shows, they went so far as producing YouTube segments, as well as Channel 4’s The Fantastical Factory of Curious Craft, hosted by Keith Lemon.

According to The Sun’s reports, Gordon’s Humble Pie Media and Humble Pie Productions are now worth a combined £9.5 million – up £7million from the year before.
Documents revealed that the latter paid just under £1 million in tax, while the former paid £142,000, meaning the Hell’s Kitchen star has made approximately £6 million during the pandemic.
MailOnline contacted a representative for Gordon for comment at the time.
The reality television personality has been splashing the cash on renovating his £7million mansion in London, with plans to introduce a wine room and a plant room, in addition to a basement bedroom.
It is hoped that ‘more usable living space’ could be created for his family by these proposed renovations on the four-storey property.
Alongside the expansion plans, Gordon intends to replace the four first floor bedrooms with a master one instead, which would cover the entire floor, two en-suite bathrooms and an impressive walk-in dressing room.
Not only does the Michelin-star chef want to add a bedroom in the basement, he has also submitted proposals to extend it and replace the existing work with a modern glass design.
Gordon is also the proud owner of three homes in Cornwall, his first one bought in 2015 for £4.4million.
At the time, it was the second most expensive sale in the south-west county.
He was granted planning permission which enabled him to knock it down, creating in its place a main house and a smaller second pad.
His family still had somewhere to stay whilst the work was ongoing, as Gordon bought a second beach house worth £4million, located in the nearby village of Trebetherick.
Gordon’s third home in the surfing haven is an old Lloyds bank which he bought in 2017 for £2million.
