My dinner was perhaps the most exquisite dining experience I've had in Brighton! This charming tucked away local spot has the warmest and most welcoming staff, unique cocktails of their own creation, and amazing combinations well presented and just to die for. This has become my number one recommendation in Brighton. I just hope it does not become too well... More

Went here on a Wednesday lunchtime and it was very quiet. It's a nice pub but no one was drinking and just one family was eating. We've tried the other Ginger group restaurants/pubs and thought we'd add this to the list - the group have a loyalty card which gets stamped with each £30 spent and adds up to a... More

My girlfriend decided that she wanted to go here for her birthday as we had heard good things about the place. As we entered we both felt like we were left hanging as no-one came over to ask if they could help. We had to actively seek someone out to find out about our table. We were told that a... More

We wanted somewhere special for my husband's 65th Sunday lunch. And it was a good choice for the 11 family and friends who lunched at The Ginger Dog on Sunday. Great dishes, freshly cooked. Lovely staff. And proper food for kids.

My wife and I ate here recently on a Friday evening. We booked a table and arrived a little early. The pub was very busy so we had a drink at the bar first which was a great way to start the evening. Our table was in the main bar area (5) which we really liked. Lots of choice for... More

Came here for a quiet celebration dinner following my daughter's university graduation ceremony and was not disappointed. The menu included some unusual takes on good old fashioned British food and also some interesting alternatives. The service was excellent and the ambience quiet and cosy - just what we were looking for.

It's part of the 'Ginger' chain, so what do you expect and yes - I've been here many times before - not least, when it was still the King of All Rugby Pubs in Brighton: The Wellington! We popped in, one Sunday evening, having walked down to the tremendous Thomas Kemp to grab a bite, only to find a wedding... More
