Gordon Ramsay gets £2.1m bonus

Gordon Ramsay has awarded himself a £2.1m bonus from the profits of his company Gordon Ramsay Holdings.

According to accounts filed at Companies House last week, the company paid its three shareholders a total of £3.1m in the form of a dividend in 2005, with Gordon Ramsay receiving just over £2.1m.

The dividend came in the same year the company made a £850,000 loss on the failed Pengelley's restaurant venture in Knightsbridge. This and opening costs associated with Maze in London, pushed Gordon Ramsay Holdings £2.4m into the red for the year.

However, a spokesperson for the company said that following the losses made in 2005, results in 2006 had returned the company to profit.

Gordon Ramsay Holdings had been expected to submit its accounts to Companies House by June last year but was delayed due to the merger of its auditors.

Gordon Ramsay is Britain's wealthiest chef with personal assets valued at more than £60m. His empire of restaurants includes nine London eateries and 10 Michelin stars, as well as ventures in New York, Tokyo and Dubai.

Ramsay's first pub, The Narrow in London's Limehouse, is expected to open later this month.
