After our last experience on a saturday night when it was really busy we decided to go along on a monday for a birthday dinner - good move. It was lovely and quiet and we could actually have a conversation. The food was excellent as before and when we complained about our pudding they checked and... read more

A party of five on a birthday weekend we could not have found a better place to celebrate. Very good sensible priced wine list plus a good selection of cocktails. Menu had plenty of choice and all the food coming out looked amazing. 2 in our party started with the pigeon so perfect they were still raving about it three... More

I booked this for a family dinner as it was recommended as a dog friendly restaurant. The service was ok but not overly friendly but the food was very disappointing - average yet really overpriced. My husband had the special of the day which was cod - literally two small mouthfulls - for £18. We won't bother going back.

Having lived in Kemp Town for almost 10 years, the Ginger Dog has always been a firm favourite. And the food keeps getting better. The customer service is incredibly friendly and welcoming and everything is done to accommodate you so that you have the best possible dining experience. The new menu is incredible - monkfish cheek tempura followed by Sunday... More

Roaring fire, fine food, good wine and really nice staff. It's dog-friendly too with doggy treats and water bowls. Best to walk here as parking is difficult if you don't have a permit.

From making the reservation to being attended to at the restaurant it was most enjoyable. We were a party of four ladies out for the evening and we were looked after very well. We did think it a little expensive but for the night in question (and my first time to Brighton) it was a special evening. Worth a visit!... More

I went here as a treat for our work Christmas do. We did not have the set Christmas menu, although that looked amazing. The food was totally scrumptious. We also had a vegetarian in our small party who agreed that the food was delicious. It is great to be able to try a unique range of flavours and the stand... More

From the outside this looks a dull corner pub But inside is a lovely setting with incredible food However they are not cheap and two mains, puds and coffees with a beer and soft drink came to over £75 Granted it was very nice and it was a special occasion but it was restaurant prices in a pub!

The Ginger Dog surely cannot fail to please , charming staff excellent roast beef what's not to like on a miserable Sunday ? very good wine list and cozy all round I really do recommend a second chance by the negative critics if the restaurant is a bit expensive the bar food is very reasonable go for it.

Really bad service, the waiters were chatting behind the bar, we tried everything to be noticed as we needed something, and they were chatting over and over... The food was good but the service let them down and it´s overpriced.
