Gordon Ramsay has turned around many restaurants since the launch of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares but even a makeover by the celebrity chef could not save Brighton fish restaurant Love's Fish.
In November 2008, owner Allan Love warned that trade had since slumped by 50% and a note pinned to the door of Love's Fish in January 2009 confirmed the restaurant had closed for good.
In a message on the restaurant's website, Love said: "We would like to thank everyone who came to the restaurant over the past two years for their support and good wishes. We were very lucky to have had such a wonderful mixture of people to serve. It's a very sad time for us all but we hopefully will try to be positive for the future.
"Also - Thank you Gordon Ramsay for all your efforts, at least we tried eh?"
It seems that Ramsay does not have the best of luck with Brighton restaurants. In 2007 it emerged that Momma's, which featured on Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares four years ago, had been placed into temporary administration with debts of £200,000.
The restaurant was subsequently rescued before closing for good two years later.
