Have been to The Ginger Fox a few times and have been meaning to visit this Brighton landmark for about 20 years and eventually got around to having Sunday lunch there. Totally unpretentious service, absolutely delicious food, fabulous menu and amazing value for money. I will be back and have no hesitation in recommending.

I had a fantastic candle lit dinner for one! (There was a problem with the lights, so the restaurant was lit only by candles). I have never eaten out alone before, but I took a book and was really well looked after by the lovely waitress. It was a luxurious treat and I felt thoroughly spoilt. Each course was beautifully...

This is the best place to eat in Brighton. My American friend said it was the best place he eaten at on his recent trip that had included top London Restaurants. This is a small intimate restaurant . The food is excellent with an ever changing menu, something for everyone, it is not large but still I have difficulty choosing.... More

Went a few weeks ago to treat my Dad for Father's Day. Have been many times over the years and as usual, it was perfect. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavour pairings were unusual, interesting and really worked. We had extremely attentive, polite and friendly waiters. Easily the best restaurant in Brighton and would recommend to anyone.

Not been to the Gingerman for a while and the food was better then ever. I started with duck tongue, beautifully presented and even better on the palette. My main of wood pigeon sublime. Again the presentation was faultless and the flavones surpassed that of the starter. I opted for cheese for dessert. What initially seemed a meager portion turned... More

We came to this cosy place for their Sunday Lunch Menu and we will most certainly come back for their dinner menu soon. The food was not only very well presented, but also interesting, stimulating and well composed. First, as an amuse-bouche the kitchen sent out some leek potato soup followed by some bread with a very nice truffle oiled... More

The best restaurant in town, always have a great time. Souffles are worth going for just on their own.

We went for lunch last week – this was our second visit. We chose from the set menu which offered two choices for each course. Once ordered we were initially presented with an amuse bouche of duck liver which we both thought was nice even though we don’t generally like liver! This was followed by some excellent bread with honey... More

Dined here today for lunch. An excellent well presented meal down the fine dining end and attentive staff. The lunch menu was very good value. All that spoilt it for us was a very loud woman on the next table but that's not the fault of the restaurant! The Gingerman is tucked away nearer to Hove but worth finding.
