From the wonderfully friendly reception, making us feel like old friends (despite the place being packed) to the totally heavenly food - this place is a joy in the heart of Kemptown in Brighton. Not only are we made welcome but Arthur (our dog) too!!! Obviously if dogs aren't your thing then there are several other restaurants in the chain... More

Having reviewed The Ginger Dog last year Im happy to say nothing has changed it just gets better. We ate there Christmas Eve and New years Eve and had a wonderful time Marianna and her team always give you a great welcome whether just popping in for a drink or eating. If you want that special time in comfortable inviting... More

We booked a table here to meet up with some friends. None of us knowing Brighton well we relied on TA and also the reputation of the other "Ginger" establishments in the area. We finished up at this one as the others were fully booked! The Ginger Dog is not the most exciting building on the outside and being near... More

Had a faultless early dinner here last night. Delicious food, excellent service, good atmosphere and lovely wine. Everything we ate was superb and it was very difficult to find fault. Highly recommended.

I went with my wife for her birthday and our 8 year old daughter. The staff were super friendly and the espresso martini for my wife hit the spot We had great steak, hake and fish pie, lovely and unusual sorbets and a cracking bottle of Finca la Estacada. The clientele is a mixture of ages and types with some... More

I want to like this place, I am attracted to the feel of the venue and the desire to deliver good food and drink, however every time I go its only ever ok, never anything more. This trip was a pre Christmas early evening dinner with friends, the focus was not the food so needs and expectations were not high.... More

We hired the upstairs room in the Ginger Dog on Friday 19th December for our work Christmas party. The room looked extremely inviting with a Christmas tree, candle sticks and the table set perfectly. You can play your own music on their blue ray operated speakers and there's a separate bathroom for the private room. The meal was first class... More

we found the food to be good quality and very nice, service was good but is this a pub that does food or a restaurant? you have to battle through the bar area to get to the tables but the food is good restaurant quality and well presented.

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
