Gordon visits The Granary in rural Hampshire, an upmarket restaurant which, at 200 seats, is the biggest he's ever taken on. Originally opened by entrepreneur Nigel Nieddu as an up-market dining club 4 years ago, the restaurant was relaunched after a £2,000,000 refit, but it's still losing £4,000 a week. It promises classy modern British cuisine but, in reality, the fussy menu features food sourced from all over the world and the locals, disconcerted by its exclusive reputation, are staying far away. Head Chef Martin doubles as parole officer to his unruly teenage charges in the kitchen, while Nigel stubbornly struggles to contain the front-of-house chaos that he's created.
