Stone’s Throw Restaurant was a Seymour, Connecticut restaurant featured on Season 2 of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back.
Though the Stone’s Throw 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired in January 2019, the actual filming and visit from Gordon Ramsay took place earlier in November 2018.
It was 24 Hours to Hell and Back Season 2 Episode 5.
In this episode, Gordon Ramsay and the Hell on Wheels truck visit Stone’s Throw Restaurant in Seymour, CT.
The restaurant location is right by the Housatonic River, which gives it some nice views.
The restaurant is owned by Peter and Tara, who purchased it three years ago as the couple wanted to work together.
The couple is struggling as they put their life savings into the restaurant.
Gordon comes in disguised as an old lady with a wig and glasses – he very much looks like Ms. Doubtfire in my opinion. It was pretty funny.
Judge for yourself – Gordon Ramsay is on the left and Mrs. Doubtfire (Robin Williams) is on the right:
He is also joined by four other women to help him blend in.
The first thing Gordon notices is that the restaurant has an odd smell.
The interior décor is also bland.
After those initial impressions, things didn’t get much better…
The salmon that Gordon ordered is overcooked, and the duck is cold.
Gordon changes out of his Mrs. Doubtfire disguise and stops everyone. He takes them all to the Hell on Wheels truck.
Footage shows plastic in food, improper poultry storage, and moldy fruit.
The footage also shows the staff slacking off.
Gordon admonishes Peter, and his wife, Tara, defends him.
The couple has hired their sons to work in the restaurant, and they do not put in much effort.
The staff is very frustrated because they are upset that the sons are not held accountable for their actions.
The customers are asked to return for the relaunch in 24 hours.
The restaurant is three months away from closing, so they need the experience on 24 Hours to Hell and Back to go well.
The walk-in fridge is full of rotted oysters and spoiled shrimp.
Gordon realizes it is the same shrimp that was served that day to him and his companions.
Tara cries in the office and tells Gordon that Peter changed after being diagnosed with cancer. G
ordon then introduces new dishes with fresh ingredients.
Peter thoroughly enjoys learning how to cook the duck dish. The team continues training until the relaunch.
The restaurant is given a new POS system and brand new kitchen equipment. All of this is installed in time for the relaunch.
Gordon spots that a duck dish comes out overcooked during practice, and the shrimp sauce is too thick.
He has them try again.
The countdown to the relaunch ends, and the staff comes back to see the renovations.
The Stone’s Throw restaurant is now filled with earthy accents and an updated color scheme.
From the beginning of the episode, Gordon’s dining companions return for the relaunch.
One of them was diagnosed with food poisoning after dining at Stone’s Throw with Gordon Ramsay, so things will hopefully go better this time.
The kitchen is overwhelmed at first because of the number of customers there for the relaunch.
There are customers waiting for their food because the kitchen can’t get dishes out fast enough.
Peter jumps in to help and expedites dishes.
The customers are impressed when the food finally gets to them, and they leave very happy.
So was the Stones Throw 24 Hours to Hell and Back visit a long-term success?

Stone's Throw Restaurant Update - What Happened Next?
Now that we’ve recapped the Stones Throw Restaurant Gordon Ramsay visit, let’s talk about what happened after Gordon and his crew left Seymour CT.
After the Stone’s Throw 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired, things seemed to be going much better for the restaurant.
While the reviews were still mixed, business seemed to be doing a little better.
Unfortunately, the Gordon Ramsay bump would not last and Stone’s Throw restaurant closed in December 2019, just about 8 months after the 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired.
The old Stone’s Throw restaurant location in Seymour CT was put up for sale and sold for $468,100 in 2021.
As of now, the old Stones Throw Restaurant CT location is empty but we assume that the new owners have plans to do something.
