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.
