lovely venue and the food was outstanding. Best Sunday lunch I’ve ever had in a pub and not far off the Hawksmoor Sunday lunch! Only criticisms were that they didn’t seem to have my reservation in the book which was odd since I booked it through the site, received a reminder on the day and have just been sent an email asking me to review. Wasn’t a problem as there was space but would have been if it were full. The other was that they forgot the cauliflower cheese but when I mentioned it to the waitress she got a bowl with an extra large and delicious helping. Neither of these spoiled what was an excellent meal with friendly service. Would recommend and will certainly return next time I’m in Brighton

Had a really lovely evening with friends. Everything was good from the ambience, the food and wine and of course friends. Waiters were great. Will definitely be back

Been to the ginger dog many times and always really liked it. Had a couple of quibbles this time which seem to mainly cetnre around the specials board, firstly the special main course was small compared to the other main courses (it also we suspect lacked the stated black pudding). I did have to nick some of my wife's mashed potato (she had too much!) as it felt like someone had forgotten to give me vegetables. We should have realised something was up with the specials at that point as we all ordered the creme brule from the specials board which took over half an hour and arrived in the form of what seemed like polenta with sugar on. Everyone else in a polite British way ate it as we decided if you thought of it as sugary polenta then it was ok. I couldn't eat mine as it in no way resembled the description on the board. The thing however that convinced me to feedback was when my parents were brought two truffles on a plate and told it was a present for their 50th anniverssary only to find it had been added to the bill! We raised it with the waitress who said something like "Oh, did i? and then shrugged.

Whatever you’re doing - stop! And head to Ginger Dog for dinner. Fantastic food (chicken bacon mushroom pie) brilliant staff and atmosphere. So don’t be daft - get over there now. Or sooner
