A great start to a Friday night out with friends First sitting of the evening and finished before the full second sitting was in and was getting a little busy. But would highly recommend this establishment

Was very impressed with the overall experience. Whilst food and wine was delicious; what really stood out was the incredibly friendly staff. They really could not do more to look after us and our children in particular. You can tell staff is enjoying working there hence the place is incredibly busy. Will be back.

Very friendly welcome. Starters very small and expensive but interesting. Service efficient and the staff engaging. Excellent steak and everything well cooked and attractively served but we could not go there again because it was very difficult to converse over dinner. The noise level was too high. Most of the tables aare in the one large room with hard surfaces... More

Went here with the family as a treat when in Brighton, having seen positive reviews for somewhere off the beaten track thought it must be worth it. The food was really good for a pub, definitely meriting the name "gastro pub". Ingredients were quality and the food was fresh and tasty. I wouldn't go back again though as the quantity... More

Visited for the first time with family. It has a nice atmosphere, but we had to wait quite a while to be seated. The meal its self was satisfactory but mine was a bit on the cold side and undercooked, but did not make a fuss of it. The staff are quite friendly and over i`quite a nice place. The... More

We really felt that we were being taken care of at The Ginger Pig - so much so that we have arranged to go back there for dinner on Christmas Eve. Everyone who served us seemed to be an expert on whatever they were doing - giving us an overall view, serving food, serving wine, etc. We were there for... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I tend to only write reviews on here if things are exceptionally good or bad. This case it was exceptionally good. Whilst being a saturday night and very busy the service was exceptional and the bar man very friendly. This second time we only actually went in for drinks and sat at... More
