the wine and fish selection was pretty good and the service is nice. After you can go for a walk on the seafront...

had dinner on Monday night, we had drinks first and they are not cheap a glass of wine at 7.50 for 175 measure, I found that a bit hard to swallow, we had a corner seat and I am so glad we did, as they do pack in the tables, so the food may be great I did not want to hear all the troubles on the other table, the building is beautiful inside and out and again they could have looked at their seating as you get small tight little seats to have drinks before you eat, again its very tight, but a lovely evening had by all.

Enjoyed the food immensely, served with great bread and quality condiments. Good to have a short menu but a longer wine list. Rhubarb jelly pudding particularly good.

Visited the Ginger Pig today for lunch and left feeling very disappointed, not with the food but the service. We have eaten at The Ginger Fox many times and it has always been excellent, even though the service can be a little hit or miss depending on who is working.
Arrived and seated, bread bought over, had to ask to order drinks & for balsmanic vinegar for the bread & for water bottle.Ordered & the starter arrived with minutes, before the wine had arrived.The food was plonked in front of us with no interaction, saying hope you enjoy your starters. When plates were cleared, again nothing said. Mains arrived, put down & nothing said, dirty glasses & side plates not cleared, in fact I moved them to the next table.Main plates cleared and nothing said again! Within a minute a pudding menu put in front of us & back to take an order within another minute. We felt rushed and then waitress had no interest in what she was serving or what we thought the quality of food had been.The restaurant was freezing cold & many people kept there coats on during lunch.We were in and out within an hour with a £95.00 bill.However the food as in all Ginger restaurants was excellent, but badley let down by the front of house staff.

Nice venue. Very attentive staff, service was good considering it was packed to capacity. Food is good, but my god its over priced. You're a pub, get over yourself! Me and my dining partner paid £26 for the "sharing" chicken pie!!!! Not enough for two, and only came with a CUP of veg! Please.
