Tried this restaurant for the first time. Was very impressed with the level of service and the taste of the food but did feel it was a smidgen expensive

After wandering around Brighton Festival Open Houses a weekend ago we decided to treat ourselves to lunch. Having pointed out the Ginger Dog to my husband as we passed earlier, we decided to see if they could find a table for us. Having fully expected to be turned away (it is a very popular restaurant) we were very pleased when... More

We had our wedding at The Ginger Dog and the team there worked so hard to make sure we had an amazing day. The food, set up of the pub and friendliness of the staff was exceptional and we have had loads of compliments on what a great venue it was. We would thoroughly recommend The Ginger Dog for such...

Beware, Ginger ( man, fox, dog ) does not = amazing standard of food because it has 'Ginger' in its title. I found the Ginger Dog very disappointing. Very different from my waxing lyrical about my Gingerman experience. I pitched up for a late 16.00 Sunday roast. The restaurant advertises they serve roast Sunday lunch until 8.30 pm. I have...

The staff are warm, friendly and professional. The wine list is extensive.The decor and atmosphere is modern yet cosy. Yet saying all that I wouldn't visit again any time soon as we all struggled to find something to eat from the limited menu. And considering that is it a limited menu, you would expect each and every dish to be... More

Rather underwhelming in all honesty. The starter (see photo), well - for £8 I'd expect a bit more effort than a slice of melon and a few tiny slithers of duck ham, if they were aiming for nouvelle cuisine then they were far of the target! The main was a fair attempt at a roast, but I cook better ones... More

The Ginger Dog was recommended at our hotel and OMG! You will not be disappointed! We have just had a meal to die for! Every aspect was perfect. Just go there and enjoy it for yourself. You'll love it.

Disappointment that the taste sensation of smoked butter was no longer on the menu was more than made up for by the Sunday roast. I am told that the black pudding lollipops were delicious and can confirm first hand that the petit fours were!
