Visited the Gingerman from word of mouth. Great classy place. Had the taster menu and definitely worth the money. The chicken main and the passion fruit soufflé were incredible, as was the fish main.

is Gingerman a child-friendly restaurant? Do you have high chairs, changing facilities at least and potentially anything to entertain young children?
