A Gordon Ramsay burger restaurant is opening in Reading

A Gordon Ramsay wants to open a restaurant in the heart of Reading where diners will have to fork out a meaty £15 for a burger.

A licence application has been submitted to Reading Borough Council for the Hell’s Kitchen celebrity chef to open one of his Street Burger chain restaurants at The Oracle.

Gordon Ramsay Street Burger first launched in London in December 2020 and is now set to come to Reading’s town centre.

The burger restaurant will replace Giraffe, which closed in 2019.

Union Street Café Ltd applied on June 8 to Reading Borough Council (RBC) for a premises licence for Gordon Ramsay Street Burger at Unit R17B Riverside Level, The Oracle.
