Gordon Ramsay mocked for charging £45 for tiny roast dinner at posh restaurant

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has been widely mocked online for charging £45 for a Sunday roast.
On Sunday, Ramsay tweeted announcing the roast dinner will be available at London's swanky Savoy Grill.

"Sundays at Savoy Grill.... roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings.... absolutely stunning!!" said Ramsay in the tweet.
The replies were quickly filled with people mocking the size of the dinner - and in particular, the trimmings, or lack thereof.
Where's the rest? #tiny

According to the menu on the Savoy Grill website, the roast is described as a "roast sirloin of beef, Yorkshire pudding & trimmings."
In the video, you can see broccoli, roast potatoes and three long carrots next to the beef and puddings. A little trickle of gravy is then poured on it.
Last week, Gordon Ramsay was similarly mocked after he announced the full English breakfast at Savoy Grill.
The fry-up will set up back £19.

Extra sides are £5 each, including sausages, eggs (any style), avocado, black pudding, grilled mushroom, smoked back bacon or salmon. White or brown toast is just £4.
The menu describes the breakfast as "a quintessentially British breakfast [with] pork sausage, smoked back bacon, tomato, mushroom, baked beans, eggs any style."
Despite the description, the image Gordon Ramsay tweeted did not actually include baked beans.
A standard full English breakfast at Wetherspoons costs £4.50, according to the menu on their website, with a large breakfast being £5.99.
