“Lived up to expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Have been to The Ginger Fox a few times and have been meaning to visit this Brighton landmark for about 20 years and eventually got around to having Sunday lunch there.
Totally unpretentious service, absolutely delicious food, fabulous menu and amazing value for money.
I will be back and have no hesitation in recommending.

“Delicious dining in the dark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I had a fantastic candle lit dinner for one! (There was a problem with the lights, so the restaurant was lit only by candles).
I have never eaten out alone before, but I took a book and was really well looked after by the lovely waitress. It was a luxurious treat and I felt thoroughly spoilt.
Each course was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.The added touches of an appetiser and a small loaf of crusty bread were super. I loved the salmon with squid ink rice and torched pineapple.The chocolatey desert with gingerbread ice cream was a perfect finish to a lovely evening.
The portions were just the right size for someone wanting to enjoy amazing flavours and not wanting to leave feeling full or in need of lots of calorie burning exercise.
I will definitely return when I come to Brighton again.
The restaurant looked full on a Wednesday evening, so it would be wise to book well in advance.

“Never Disapoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is the best place to eat in Brighton. My American friend said it was the best place he eaten at on his recent trip that had included top London Restaurants. This is a small intimate restaurant . The food is excellent with an ever changing menu, something for everyone, it is not large but still I have difficulty choosing.
Everything is cooked to perfection. The bread is always enjoyable, hot and delicious Do try the souffle an absolute delight..

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Went a few weeks ago to treat my Dad for Father's Day. Have been many times over the years and as usual, it was perfect. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavour pairings were unusual, interesting and really worked. We had extremely attentive, polite and friendly waiters. Easily the best restaurant in Brighton and would recommend to anyone.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Not been to the Gingerman for a while and the food was better then ever.

I started with duck tongue, beautifully presented and even better on the palette.

My main of wood pigeon sublime. Again the presentation was faultless and the flavones surpassed that of the starter.

I opted for cheese for dessert. What initially seemed a meager portion turned out to be the perfect amount. Not your usual bland supermarket offering. Each had bold flavones that somehow complimented others on the plate.

Whilst £77 per head may seem expensive everyone had what they wanted. The quality of the food was exceptional. Highly recommended.
