Within walking distance but got a cab back! Thoroughly satisfying experience. Attentive service, lovely food and nice wines make for a special evening out. Prices were just right for the quality of the cuisine too. Will be returning and trying their other restaurants as well.

This is a real restaurant that puts a lot of love and effort in to quality rather than quantity. The menu isn't very big which means that the quality of food is also higher. The food is beautifully presented and the portions might be on the smaller side but on the other hand you won't leave hungry. The staff is... More

My partner booked a table for two at the Gingerman for my birthday. Needless to say it was excellent, the food was superb. Service was great all night and to top it off when we finished our meal they rang a cab for us. Was a special meal for a special occasion and would definitely go again.

We had an amazing dinner. The place is small but nice. The meal was quite expensive but we enjoyed all of it! Digne de la gastronomie française!

Had Sunday lunch with friends who had eaten here before. Lovely staff, so friendly and they got the service just right. The roast beef Sunday lunch was amazing, generous portions and so tasty. The cauliflower cheese was as good as my mother-in-law's and that's saying something! We all had different desserts and I could have eaten all of them (if... More
