In tonight's program Gordon Ramsay travels to the seaside to help ailing hotel and restaurant, THE SANDGATE. This is LOIS and PETER's first venture into the catering industry - the happily married couple used to enjoy eating in restaurants, so thought it might be fun to own one. 18months later their dream has turned into a nightmare and they're loosing Â£4,000 a month. In the kitchen their head chef, STUART is on the brink of a nervous breakdown. He's forced to cook for 4 restaurants including a fine dining upstairs, and a Japanese restaurant in the basement, but it's when he loses his coveted AA award that he really hits rock bottom. Eccentric, overstaffed and on the point of collapse can Gordon bring this real life Fawlty Towers back from the edge?
The Sandgate Hotel is open. The business was sold by Lois and Peter in 2006 and has changed hands at least twice since.
