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

The Gingerman in Brighton is an excellent, small restaurant. The menu is relatively small, but well thought-out. The food is excellent, worthy of many a high-end London restaurant and the wine list should accommodate most tastes. The service is excellent - a personal touch and very welcoming and the ambiance is refined and intimate Not inexpensive, but worth every penny.... More

I chose this restaurant because of tripadviser reviews. My family had dinner there to celebrate a 90th birthday. We were not dissapointed. The service, each of the meals and presentation was perfect. The wine we chose was lovely as well. The prices are high however for a special occasion we felt it was worth it. We know that prices to... More

We have eaten here over four times in the past year. We love the place. But if you want very good food at a good price then come on a sunday lunch time. The cost is just £23 per person for three fantastic courses. You will be coming back time and time again. Even better they offer a loyalty card... More

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.
