I love the food at Ginger Bistro. In the 10 or so years it has been open the standard has remained high. I love the squid more than I can explain, it's just amazing. The food all round is fab. The staff are really lovely too.

Genuinely one of the best meals I've had in a decade. So tasty. I had the £32 set menu (prawns/beef/chocolate pudding). The starter was so good I ordered it again. Seriously. First time I've ever done this! The restaurant has a lovely ambience and the service is brilliant. Great restaurant.

Came here yesterday evening for a meal with friends and was blown away by the quality of food and the level of service we recieved. The soup was the best id ever tasted and the steak that followed again was the best. The atmosphere in the resturant was brilliant. We will be returning tonight and know we wont be disappointed....

Went for early evening meal and chose from the pre-theatre menu. There was a reasonable choice and I opted for the squid and dips followed by the thai seasoned chicken and coconut sauce. The starter was excellent, tender and light with flavoursome dips. The main dish was OK but lacked the kick I expected. The chicken was tender and the... More

Visited without a reservation for an early evening meal with a colleague while working away, we weren't hopeful of a table as it was Valentine's day but the lovely waitress managed to squeeze us in. Ordered seafood chowder and an amazing poached pear sweet. Now, I have had many, many seafood chowder in my time and this was among the... More

Looking for a place to treat us for Valentine's we stumbled upon this gem. On arrival we were given multiple menus and we went for the normal dinner menu. I had the warm duck and mango salad, my friend had the mussels with chorizo (and a great tomato bread). He said these were the best mussels he ever had. For... More

Despite being fully booked (and us not having a reservation) they managed to find us a lovely little table in the middle of the restaurant. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Service with a smile, left very happy 🍀

Ginger Bistro offers a high quality but informal dining experience. The food is consistently good and the staff seem able to offer a personal service even when very busy. Would recommend without hesitation.
