This was my first visit to the Gingerman and as expected the food quality and level of service was high. I always appreciate the small touches (warm bread, different flavours of butter), efficient but unobtrusive service, slightly unusual dish combinations (squid and pork) with neat presentation. Overall the three courses and wine that my girlfriend and I had were most... More

Went for an Sunday evening meal. Food was excellent (both had the guinea fowl which was delicious). Friendly and helpful staff. The only small complaint was it got very warm half way though evening. Look forward to visiting again, once we've done the last two ginger restaurants!

Come every year for our birthdays and anniversaries. The food is wonderful and service impeccable. However on this occasion there was a table of approx 10 who were having a thoroughly good evening and were rather jovial! Problem with such a small restaurant is the noise carries round the room. Having sat down and looked at the menu for several... More

In December 2016, we booked a table to celebrate my dad’s and my wife’s birthday with lunch at the Gingerbread Man in Brighton. Upon looking at the menu, we noticed that one of the desserts contained peanuts. Our 6 year old is highly allergic to peanuts and has to carry Epi pens with her. Our daughter reacts on contact with... More

The service was delightful, the food exquisite and the wine delicious.... me and my girlfriend went for a cheeky set menu, we couldn't have been happier.. the textures on mackerel was stupendous. It's a lovely small place, well hidden from the huddle and bustle and stag do's! I couldn't recommend this more highly and simply cannot wait back..... I will... More

Fantastic meal and friendly, attentive and calm service. Whether celebrating a special occasion, or simply having dinner for two dining at the The Gingerman is always special. We've never been disappointed. Consistently the best cuisine in Brighton.

Another great lunch at the original (and best) Gingerman. Faultless service, a calm and relaxing ambience and a fantastic set lunch menu. Each dish balanced and delicious. Flavours, presentation and quality all a high standard. 3 courses £20. Complimentary bread and tasty amuse bouche are delightful. Incredible value in Brighton town centre. Highly recommended.

We went on Valentine's Day and had the Valentine's menu. The food was absolutely excellent and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The place has a lovely atmosphere and while the staff were clearly busy they did not let this affect the quality of their service. Our visit was for two friend's birthdays and the chef even brought... More
