Good menu and service, the food was very good, although with so much competition in Brighton it's quite pricey for what it is. No complaints though - and the cocktails were great!

3 years is a long time in the pub industry. Our first visit then was very very good, we were looking forward to enjoying a drink and dining the other Friday night when we visited What happened to your customer service in that time? You made us feel so unwelcome at 5pm and made it very clear that the table... More

Another year and another fantastic long lunch at The Ginger Dog to celebrate the festive period. The team could not have made us more welcome, the food was great and the ambience what every pub should offer (gastro or not). We'll be back...

Having not been able to get into our favourite restaurant as too busy, was very pleased to end up at The Ginger Dog. Great starters - the goats cheese and beetroot was particularly good followed by a fantastic skate wing and pork belly mains. Terrific atmosphere and service just 10 minutes walk away

Lovely cosy Brighton pub serving the most amazingly beautifully cooked food I've had in a long time, they were most accommodating when we turned up with an extra person despite the fact they were packed to the gills on a Saturday evening. I can't wait to go back!

Rib-eye steak was cooked perfectly and triple cooked chips were great and hock & rabbit pie was delicious. Very good service even though the restaurant was busy with xmas parties.

We went on a cold Monday and the place was packed and buzzing. Very good service and a lovely warm atmosphere. I had the special red legged partridge, which was a first for me - excellent. My only criticism would be that the music was a little too loud.

Bad attitude by the staff. I asked to see a lunch menu and it was thrown at me as they were fairly busy. Stood at the bar for about 8 minutes but was ignored. Walked out in the end as I was clearly an unwanted solo diner.

We reserved at this restaurant from TripAdvisor reviews to meet up with another family member for dinner in Brighton and it lived up to expectations. Parking nearby is a challenge due to the local authority policy but we found a spot quite close. It was a fairly quiet evening in the week so, as it was only about 25% full,... More

Although resisting the salted caramel martini that the Ginger Dog is famous for, the food didn't need a slightly tipsy accompaniment to be absolutely excellent. A good step up from a gastropub, the ribeye steak was absolutely fantastic and a brilliant cosy setting with a bar out front also for drinks before. Very busy for a lazy Sunday evening, with...
