The TV chef, 54, has baked a piece of mullet in cider priced at £24.50, while a serving of chips is on the menu for £7 at The River Restaurant in London.

According to the website, the ‘stylish and relaxed all-day dining restaurant’ offers panoramic views of the River Thames and ‘displays the very best seafood the UK has to offer’.

On Friday, Gordon shared a photo of the fish and chips on his Instagram, but many were unimpressed with the price in the comments.

One woman wrote: ‘Prefer to eat my local chippy. In any case, they are not children’s portions.’

Another user joked, “Maybe someday when I win the lottery.”

’25 pounds for that fish! Rip off, I could eat for that for a week,” wrote a third.

However, some of his supporters jumped to his defense, saying they were excited to try The River Restaurant’s cuisine.

Lots of jealous comments on this thread. If you don’t like its food, the price and the portions, follow the ones you don’t envy and let those who appreciate good quality food enjoy it,” one woman wrote.

MailOnline has reached out to Gordon Ramsay’s representatives for further comment.

It comes after it was reported earlier this month that the chef and restaurateur has further amassed his fortune with £6 million over the pandemic.

Gordon, Gino and Fred: Roadtrip, and the new Fox series Next Level Chef are among those TV stints that have boosted his bank balance by an astonishing figure.

His production company Studio Ramsey didn’t stop at making a series of shows, going as 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 reports, Gordon’s Humble Pie Media and Humble Pie Productions are now worth £9.5 million together – an increase of £7 million from the previous year.

Documents revealed the latter paid just under £1 million in taxes, while the former paid £142,000, meaning the Hell’s Kitchen star has earned around £6 million during the pandemic.

MailOnline at the time reached out to a Gordon representative for comment.

The reality TV personality has spent the money renovating his £7million London mansion, with plans to introduce a wine room and tech room, in addition to a basement bedroom.

It is hoped that these proposed renovations will create ‘more useful living space’ for his family on the four-storey property.

In addition to the expansion plans, Gordon plans to replace the four bedrooms on the first floor with a master bedroom, which would occupy the entire floor, two en-suite bathrooms and an impressive walk-in dressing room.

Not only does the Michelin-starred 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 houses in Cornwall, buying his first in 2015 for £4.4million.

At the time, it was the second most expensive sale in the Southwestern Province.

He got planning permission that allowed him to demolish it, creating a main building and a smaller secondary path in its place.

His family still had shelter while work was underway as Gordon bought a second £4 million beach house located in the nearby village of Trebetherick.

Gordon’s third home in the surf haven is an old Lloyds bank which he bought in 2017 for £2million.
