Gordon Ramsay’s Net Worth Tells A Self-Made Triumph Story

You tend to forget how many pies Gordon Ramsay has his fingers in until you break down the celebrity chef’s net worth.

From humble (and oft tumultuous) working-class beginnings in the Bishopton area of Stratford-upon-Avon, fortune aside, Ramsay’s story is one of triumph: 17 Michelin stars (eight active at the time of this writing), 26 best-selling books, countless wildly successful television shows, and a larger-than-life reputation synonymous with quality dining (among other things).

And to think — none of this would’ve happened if his “gammy knee” had allowed him to pursue a footballing career as he’d initially intended.

What is Gordon Ramsay’s net worth?

According to the latest figures, Gordon Ramsay has a net worth between the more conservative US$220 million and £610 million (AU$340 million and AU$1.2 billion), earning a reported £90 million (AU$175 million) annually via multiple revenue streams.

Between his top-rated food and travel shows, best-selling books, as well as his internationally-renowned Gordon Ramsay Restaurant group which currently retains eight Michelin stars, we’re learning towards the larger estimate.

Given his working-class upbringing and unwavering respect for a good work ethic, Forbes’ 19th highest-earning celebrity of 2020 doesn’t make a habit of spending his millions frivolously. Nor does he intend to give it away willy-nilly.

Back in 2017, he told The Telegraph that his six children shouldn’t expect any substantial inheritances, a la Daniel Craig.

“It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way, it’s to not spoil them,” he said.

“The only thing I’ve agreed with [my wife] Tana is that they get a 25% deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.”

This “self-made” and grounded mentality is something Gordan Ramsay has consistently championed.

The fiery chef continued: “I have got to keep it real with the kids, and also I think just getting kids at the age of five/six/seven used to first class and those big seats… they do not need the space, they get entertainment on their iPads.”

“I do not want them sat there with a 10-course f**king menu with champagne. I am not embarrassed. It is my wife and I’s choice to discipline them and to keep them real.”

Here’s a breakdown of the man’s wealth.

Gordon Ramsay Holdings

Gordon Ramsay Net Worth (2024)

From restaurants, dining concepts, and even the Gordon Ramsay Academy located in Woking, Surrey; to consultancy and media production, all of Gordon Ramsay’s business interests are held via Gordon Ramsay Holdings Limited.

As some of you may recall, this was run in partnership with his father-in-law Chris Hutcherson up until 2010 when the latter was ousted for what essentially amounted to hacking and embezzlement.

Ramsay maintains a 69% stake in the company, which was valued at £67 million (AU$130 million) back in 2007. This total has increased in the 17 years since.

In 2019, Gordon Ramsay inked a US$100 million (AU$155 million) deal with London-based private equity firm Lion Capital to form a subsidiary of the Gordon Ramsay Restaurant group.

Dubbed Gordon Ramsay North America (GRNA), Ramsay and Lion each claimed 50% ownership and originally aimed to open 100 restaurants in the US by 2024. Those plans were obviously torpedoed by COVID-19. The revised target is now 75 new company-owned locations between 2022 and 2026.

Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurants

The Ramsay restaurant empire laid its foundation in 1993 when the man behind the name ascended to the position of head chef at Aubergine. The up-and-coming chef owned 25% of the very establishment where he earned his first two Michelin stars, and in 1997, he founded Gordon Ramsay Restaurants.

With the help of his “proteges” such as Marcus Wareing, Angela Hartnett, and Jason Atherton, over the course of a decade, Ramsay would conquer the UK food scene, racking up the accolades in the process, before taking on continental Europe, the US, and Hong Kong to varying degrees of success.

According to This Is Moneythe Gordon Ramsay Restaurant group reported “record revenues of £78.9 million (AU$150 million) for the 12 months ending August 2022, up from £26.2 million (AU$50 million) the year prior.”

The British financial outlet also noted that (as outlined above) the pandemic predictably knee-capped his businesses and, like many restaurants/hospitality groups, was forced to cut hundreds of jobs.

Beyond flagship properties such as Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef (US), and of course, Kitchen Nightmares which reportedly netted him a generous salary in excess of US$225,000 (AU$350,000) per episode, he’s appeared in a handful of one-off documentary specials such as Gordan Ramsay On Cocaine and even cameoed in non-cooking/travel media like New Girl and Big Hero 6: The Series.

Gordon Ramsay’s Real Estate Portfolio

Gordon Ramsay and his family split their time between their US$6.75 million (AU$10.32 million) mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles and their £7 million (AU$13.5 million) pad in the Wandsworth Common area, Southwest London.

Across the years, Ramsay has acquired and sold several properties, including three houses in Cornwall collectively worth £11 million (AU$21.3 million) based on the last estimates:

  • £4 million (AU$7.7 million) mansion dubbed Daymer Bay House in Trebetherick
  • £4.4 million (AU$8.5 million) property in Rock (demolished & built from scratch after purchase)
  • £2 million (AU$3.9 million) Grade II listed property in Fowey — a former bank refurbished and rechristened Trevail House (offloaded for £2.75 million / AU$5.32 million in August 2020)

All of the above were bought years ago, the oldest being the London property (c. 2002), and have since appreciated.
