It was our first time visiting The Ginger Man in Brighton and we had an amazing experience. The starters were theatrical and very tasty, and the fish cake was delicious with the sauce. Superb service and attendance to detail

Small venue so tables are a bit tightly packed. Short menu with unusual, original choices and top quality flavours and presentation. Staff very friendly too. Essential to book .
