Tonight's program sees Gordon Ramsay in Oscars in Nantwich. On the surface this place seems idyllic, an Irish family run restaurant in the heart of beautiful countryside. Owner MAURA runs the front of house and her son LENIN is the Head chef, but it's not 'happy families'. With her life savings on the line Maura is in big trouble. She constantly bickers with her son whilst the customers are forced to wait hours for their fluorescent crab stick paellas, and stodgy carbonaras from Oscars 'bit of everything' menu. The place is losing Â£2000 per week, but that isn't the worst of their problems, Lenin has got a serious drink problem and during service collapses and has to be rushed off to hospital. It's Gordon's toughest challenge yet; can he bring the Irish heart back to Oscars, stop mother and son fighting, and get the Lenin to face up to his problems?
Oscars is closed. They closed in October 2005 as Maura sold the restaurant and Lenin went into rehab.
