This is one of the best restaurant that I have visited a few times and never missed a trick. Food were cooked to perfection and service was attentive and wonderful. Their wine list are great too. It's not cheap but it's definitely money well spend. I find their dessert really creative and fascinating. Highly recommended!

Don't be fooled by the picture of the loyalty card dominating the listing - the scheme is discontinued and any full cards cannot be set against meals on Friday, Saturday or Sunday before dark. The food was as good as ever, meaning the amuse bouche, starters and sweets are the stars and you are left wondering if you could swap... More

Got a voucher for Christmas so visited for Sunday lunch. It was absolutely beautiful! From little touches such as homemade bread and a small aperitif to lovely roast beef and brilliant service. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

It doesn't happen very often but every now and then you have one of those meals that you think afterwards "I couldn't fault that at all" , a wonderful little restaurant which served up really great looking plates of food that tasted even better!

This is the place that we always go back to time and time again. What can I say? The waiting staff are telepathic, they seem to know exactly what I want and are so knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu. The menu changes so that it remains seasonal but the quality remains the same. Excellent! The lunch menu is... More

This was my first experience at one of the 'Ginger' eateries of Sussex, but I had heard about how lovely they were from a friend who lived in Brighton. I am so glad I made the trip from London, because I ended up having a super Sunday lunch that has assured me all the praise was highly warranted. Every box... More

My wife & I ate at The Gingerman on Saturday night. It's a small restaurant & quite intermediate, but that's what gives its great ambience. The staff were extremely welcoming & very professional. After seating our orders were taken. Whilst we waited for our food to arrive we were given complementary a butternut squash with crispy parmesan veloutee & homemade... More
