After being told by several friends to visit I managed to book a table. The service was ok, slow in parts but they were indeed very busy. I sent back my main as it wasn't cooked properly. Having expected so much I was underwhelmed. Drinks were rarely offered and the bill was above average. I've had better experiences and left... More

Visited with some friends down from London. They were amazed with the quality of food and the excellent service. They considered the food to be of Michelin star quality. Will visit again soon,this is one of the best restaurants in Brighton. The menu was superb and very inventive.

Brilliant food and excellent service. Well worth a visit. Vegetarain choices but food for the meat lover too. Small, welcoming atmosphere. Elegant without being imposing.

We were recommended Gingerman by friends and it was superb. We were a party of 4 (2 adults, 2 boys aged 9 & 12) celebrating a birthday. The staff helped with meals for the children (as no child menu) and billed us accordingly. We would recommend Gingerman to everyone wanting good food created brilliantly and attentive, polite and helpful staff.... More

Excellent food, faultless service and a wonderful birthday lunch! Chanced upon The Gingerman after trying somewhere else that wouldn't allow my wife and I to sit opposite each other! What a find, the food was simply amazing, with kind and attentive service. Will defiantly be going back.

My boyfriend and I visited the Gingerman to celebrate an anniversary. It was a great choice- the food was fabulous and the service exceptional. We loved the menu and had a hard time deciding what to have as it offered lots of things we hadn't tried before. We really loved the whole experience.

We are repeat visitors to The Gingerman and it never disappoints. It's a cosy neighbourhood restaurant with a modern British menu, always inventive, serving fresh seasonal food, well presented and well cooked. The staff are welcoming and attentive. It's definitely one of the top restaurants in Brighton - highly recommended but you need to book in advance for a Saturday... More
