Off chance visit for lunch. Short set menu that's good value and a real treat. Flavourful and visually attractive, a lovely meal, served by attentive staff in a pleasant atmosphere. Recommended

We went to the Gingerman for Sunday roast. The amuse bouche and the first course were really interesting and fun. It went a bit more mainstream and ho-hum from there. A good meal overall, but not a top 10 lunch abroad. Our initial server was really stiff and tended to help the other tables over ours. Somewhere during our meal,... More

I visited here with my partner on the last night of ur stay in Brighton. The restaurant was very close to our hotel (the Mercure - incidentally also very good!) so it was an easy choice combined with the good reviews on here. The restaurant didn't disappoint. We had a lovely amuse bouche. I had already explained that I had... More

Brighton is awash with hotels and eateries and seemingly there are new ones opening on a monthly basis. And if it were not for the likes of TA, it would be a challenge where to stay and eat. That said, even relying on TA, one can make mistakes. However, when it comes to Gingerman, the current ‘top 15’ TA status... More

Went for lunch on New Year's Eve. Easy to miss the restaurant as small front and does not have in your face signage. Restaurant is small but very well done. We had a very pleasant greeting which I believe is impoctant. I have eaten at a number of great restaurants around the world and this is one of the best,... More

This is the 2nd time I've been here and yet again, it didn't disappoint. Reasonable menu in terms of price, but fantastic food, service and atmosphere, I wouldn't bother to look at anywhere else in brighton as this place is excellent.

My wife and I had eaten there before and booked weeks in advance to make sure we could get in. We ate from the set menu and it was great: cured salmon to start and then the venison and the souffle afterwards. On a previous occasion, we had taken my very deaf 86-year old Father to Gingerman for lunch and... More

We ate here last Wednesday at lunch time. We were being treated and after a bottle or 2 of a very delicious Prosecco we ordered from the set menu. For my part I had the Kedgeree to start followed by the Venison and game pie. The timing was perfect, allowing us time to choose a very tasty Rhone to accompany... More
