Gordon Ramsay charging punters £345 for New Years Eve dinner – without booze

Gordon Ramsay is charging punters £345-a-head for a New Year’s Eve dinner – without any booze.

The sweary chef – who has been blasted before by diners for his pricey portions – is offering the meal at his Michelin-starred Petrus restaurant in south-west London.

His seven-course menu for December 31 at the posh eaterie is £300-a-pop – with a 15% service charge automatically slapped on the bill.

That would bring the price to £345 for a solo diner.

But what could be particularly hard to swallow for those tucking in at Petrus will be the booze.

Its wine list includes bottles costing thousands of pounds each – and alcohol is not included in the meal package.

It does include a starter of smoked eel and potato salad, pate, scallops, Dover sole, roasted Anjou pigeon, marmalade sorbet and hazelnut mousse.

Ramsay’s New Year’s menu at his The River Restaurant is even pricier – at £402.50-a-head including the 15% service charge.

The whopping price tags come despite the 55-year-old telly chef getting a roasting from fans for showing off a tiny portion of lamb at Petrus on his Instagram account earlier this year.

Ramsay was also slated last year for charging £19 for a fry-up at his Savoy Grill in London, with one punter raging online: "File under rip-off.’’
