Creative cuisine in this small and cosy restaurant. Thumbs up for the service, quality of the ingredients. The menu offers some options and a decent wine list.

AMAZING food and great service from both of the waiting staff. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It was my birthday so my partner and I both had the tasting menus and I must say it was to die for. We were allowed to change the dessert on the tasting menu to the chocolate one on the 3 course menu which... More

Recently visited what was a favourite restaurant for a birthday . The menu was limited and nothing we really fancied so went for the Taster menu . This restaurant is quite pricey but always excellent and ok value . This menu was a total rip off value wise . Sadly We didn't receive what we deemed as a satisfactory response... More

The staff were professional yet friendly and approachable. There were no silly questions about the menu and all were happily answered. Food was superb as always, and great customer service that knew when to give us attention and when to leave us alone. The fine line! Couldn't ask for better! Bravo! 👏🏻

I visited the Gingerman for my anniversary with my partner after seeing the other great reviews on here. Everything about the meal, wine and service was fantastic. They did a lovely anniversary dessert for us too which was very kind. It is quite pricey but it is very special and well worth a try.

Gingerman tasting menu with wine Visited Sunday evening booked in advance luckily as it was full. Small intermate restaurant lovely staff attentive without being intrusive. Tasting menu excellent small dishes more than enough to eat with accompanying wine. We didn't have it but the dessert soufflé looked stunning. Will definitely return.

Had a really nice lunch today, great service and food .Being asked if we wanted tap water instead of having to ask was a nice touch. We will return soon. Space between courses spot on.
