Tom Kerridge is being slammed after calling out Salt Bae’s ‘extortionate’ £630 steak at his new London restaurant. 

It all started when of one the famous chef’s staff decided to create a sign that included Kerridge’s face alongside a prime cut of beef.

It read: “Tom-ahawk steak. Not £630.”

The 48-year-old then took to Twitter and shared the photo, alongside the caption: “Salt Bae steak: £630. Some peace and quiet: priceless.”

The remark comes just days after a diner at Salt Bae’s restaurant shared their ‘eye-watering’ receipt, which totalled £1,812.

However, Kerridge’s social media ‘attack’ on the Turkish chef didn’t go to plan, as many people accused him of being a ‘hypocrite’, explaining that his own eatery is ‘overpriced’.

One person tweeted: “Mate, you seem like a nice guy but you charge £6.50 for some roast peanuts. So you really can’t take the p***.”

Another added: “Tom, it’s five and a half quid for a roll and a butter at your gaff.”

“£87 for steak and £25+ for a starter?” a third commented. “People are in glass houses…”

A fourth simply said: “The irony.”

Although Kerridge’s post didn’t get the reaction he had intended, he stood by his comments and hit back at his haters.

On Instagram, he wrote: “Before any pea-brained doughnut asks, it’s not £87.

“You choose your meat at the counter at butchers prices and then get charged a £12.50 cook charge per person.

“Absolute bargain.”

Kerridge was recently blasted by a magazine editor for charging £87 for a steak at his ‘unpretentious’ pub.

The critic wrote: “Website of @handfmarlow- ‘unpretentious’, ‘proper pub’, ‘for everyone to enjoy’, ‘relaxed and accessible’.

“Also @handfmarlow– steak and chips: £87; side of cabbage: £7.50; creme brûlée: £26.50. And people complain about wine list mark-ups.”
