Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Martins Bistro, the Chef Owner Mick was in trouble with secret credit cards and debts accrued by keeping the business going. He served Gordon a duck cooked with Orange Squash and a vaccum packed long life lamb shank which Gordon refused to eat as it was full of e numbers and preservatives. Mick and Gordon argued throughout, Mick and Mo argued, Mick and daughter Michelle argued. Eventually Gordon talked Mick into using fresh local produce including fresh lamb shanks. He also took Mick out of the kitchen replacing him with Michelle.
What happened next: He revisited and things had slowly started to slip back to the Cash and Carry but Gordon arranged a local meeting to bring the locals together and to get a totally fresh menu back on.After what appeared to be a small blip when Gordon revisited, Mick hired a new chef to work in the kitchen and the restaurant is serving local produce once again. Reviews look good. The focus appears to have shifted more towards the cafe side of the business and it appears that the restaurant may have changed hands recently.
