Gordon Ramsay has his eyes on the Savoy Grill in the West Endof London.

Ramsden tells the Mandrake column in The Sunday Telegraph, at the launch of his new restaurant at the Connaught Hotel, in Mayfair: “I don’t believe anything is too big. It’s the Savoy Grill I’d like to take charge of next.”

He says he has great plans for the Grill but “right now they’re secret”.

A Savoy Group spokesman said Ramsay would like to take over the world but it had no plans to let him take over the Savoy Grill.
