|Ramsay Prepares To Call Time On Another Pub|
Poor trading blamed after last orders called at The Warrington
It seems a case of another week another closure for Gordon Ramsay after the controversial chef prepares to call last orders on another one of his gastro pubs.
Again poor trading is being blamed for the closure of Ramsay's first venture into pubs, The Warrington. The same reason was given for the demise of Chiswick's The Devonshire just weeks ago. It is believed that large property is now on the market.
With large tax demands in the US and the closure of his restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa in July, it appears that all is not rosey in Ramsay's kitchens.
However the beleaguered chef will be comforted by his recent deal which stands to make him millions after selling his half of One Potato Two Potato - the production company which makes many of his hit TV shows including Gordon's Great Escape and Gordon Ramsay's Cookalong Live. It is his seemingly constant presence on our small screens that has often been blamed for keeping him out of the kitchen and away from his restaurants.
One Potato Two Potato, which is being sold to All3Media as part of a takeover of Optomen Television, will reportedly net Ramsay £20 million which will no doubt come in handy after it transpired authorities in the US sent his firm Gordon Ramsay Holdings three outstanding tax bills in the last eight months.
