Gordon Ramsay is charging £290 per person for Christmas Dinner without Turkey

Gordon Ramsay is charging £290 per person for Christmas Dinner without Turkey

No turkey, Gordon?

If you want to get a Christmas dinner cooked by Gordon Ramsay, or more likely a chef under his direction, then you can head for his restaurant.

That's right, it's time for the annual check on how much it'd cost you to dine at his Petrus restaurant during the most wonderful time of the year.

Last year the price for one person to have their Christmas din-dins at Ramsay's restaurant was £275, and that was before you even added any drinks into the mix.

However, that miserable money-grubbing monster that is inflation means the price has gone up for this year's festive feast to £290, and there's not even any turkey on offer.

That's right, there's no turkey for dinner at Ramsay's Christmas restaurant so if you were hoping for something more traditional you'd best look elsewhere.

What you can do for your £290 is treat your taste buds to such dishes as a Potimarron Tart, Lobster Raviolo, Confit Dover Sole, Aynhoe Park Deer, Brilliant Savarin (which may in fact be the cheese Brilliat-Savarin) or Plaisir Sucre.

They all sound lovely but it's still not turkey with all the trimmings cooked by one of the finest kitchens in all the land.

On top of your £290 bill for the meal alone you'll also be charged an extra 15 percent for the service and that's not even mentioning drinks yet.

Petrus has a trio of Christmas drink options ranging from their 'Premium Pairing' which will cost you £220 through to the 'Connoisseur Pairing' that will set you back a hefty £395.

For those who have a fortune to spend on a festive feast you might try the 'Indulgence Pairing', which for £875 is pretty darn indulgent indeed.

Petrus is open between 12pm and 4pm on Christmas Day, so if you're eating there you're not actually tucking into Christmas dinner when Gordon Ramsay reckons you should be.

The famous chef has said the best time of day to tuck in will be 5pm, which you can't do at Petrus since they'll have been closed for an hour by then.

However, the chefs and staff at the restaurant will be wanting their Christmas dinners by then, and after a busy day preparing a feast for everyone else they'll have earned the right to tend to their own appetites.

One of Ramsay's key pieces of advice for those who want to have their Christmas dinner in the traditional style is to start preparing it early.
