Booked the Gingerman for lunch with my girlfriend on a rainy Sunday, based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. A large, juicy slab of roast beef, served pink with perfect roasties and Yorkshire pudding made this the best roast either of us could remember. The only criticism either of us could think of was that it... More

What more can I say than fantastic, well balanced food, smooth service and delicious wine. You will need to book well in advance for weekends but it's totally worth it. Four of us went for a birthday meal and were looked after really well. Had perfectly cooked scallops with sweet potato and little vegetables in a slightly spicy and perfectly... More

Visited with five friends, we all agreed the food was excellent - every morsel was eaten. The wine was also fantastic. Great value for such high end cuisine. The front of house service was impeccable. The intimate feel that the restaurant has added to a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.

We have wanted to visit for quite a while and finally got round to eating out at The Gingerman. The menu was relatively brief but with some really interesting items. The food was excellent, well presented, tasty and interesting... a delightful dinner. If I was to criticise anything it was that each of the dishes was just a little busy... More

We came here for my partner's birthday and had a truly wonderful evening. The food and service were perfection. The restaurant is cozy and intimate, you definitely need to book to be sure of a table. It's tucked away a bit but well worth the effort. Amazing value too.

Having ordered our food we were given an appetizer of apple and celeriac soup which was absolutely delicious followed by our meal which was well presented with wonderful flavours.... More

My husband and I booked this restaurant having read the reviews on trip advisor. The restaurant is very smal with only a small number of tables however this adds to the atmosphere and experience. We ate on Sunday night that was quiet however the restaurant felt very cosy and had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The two members of staff were... More

This is probably my favourite Brighton restaurant. A visit will ensure personal and attentive service in a cosy space (sometimes a bit too small when busy). Every visit has been greeted with a friendly smile and a short but delicious menu choice. There has never been an occasion when I have had a dilemma of choice. For those that haven't... More
