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.

We visited on a week night after visiting all the other Gingerman restaurants and had completed the loyalty card to receive a free 2 course meal. The service was exceptional and very friendly and the food was very tasty and well presented and all 3 courses were great. There was a nice atmosphere and would like to return again.

The food was excellent and the choice of drinks ( gin in particular) was very good . If in this area of Kemptown pop... More

Positives: They welcome dogs. The staff were friendly enough despite the Sunday crowds. Buzzy atmosphere. Negatives: No veggie roast option. Pork roast came without yorkshire pud - when I asked why everyone around me had one, i was told "you have to ask for them specially if you are not eating beef" - hardly anyone was eating beef but they...

My partner and I came to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening in February. We were here to celebrate a new job so happy to push the boat out. All in all it was a wonderful evening - the service was attentive and warm, without any fuss or attitude. The waiter was happy to let us taste a couple of... More

original menu, with good range of semi-traditional dishes with a twist. I can recommend the beef cheek and mushroom pie, which was the proper pastry-all-round version and not the usual puff-on-top nonsense. Dessert list was also quirky, very nice rhubarb crumble. Service friendly and unobtrusive Good wine list, decor fairly plain and slight lack of romantic ambiance but generally a... More
