“Lovely, lovely, lovely... this English country pub” – from Brighton’s Gingerman group – “ticks every box: gorgeous garden with climbing frame for the kids, superb food, a fine wine list and great beer. Oh, and the staff couldn’t do enough for us, without being obsequious”. And more boxes: “sources local produce and wine as well”. “The perfect country pub”, agree its many fans: “can’t wait to go back”.

The country cousin in Brighton’s Gingerman family is a whitewash-and-thatch gastroboozer on the edge of the South Downs which wins consistently good ratings for its well-presented menus of “delicious” dishes.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Outstanding. 6 of us ate a predominantly fish/vegetarian-based menu (though the meat pie was, my son says, brilliant). The mix of tastes in the plaice with Mediterranean sauce was a pleasure throughout; the chick-pea-flour-based batons, chosen by half of our party were thought excellent. Not a down note from any of us about anything (unknown, that). Service was relaxed but efficient - the staff communicated positive energy that enhanced our enjoyment - our Spanish waiter easily diffusing the embarrassment my wife often feels about her extensive but inconsistent food exclusions, leaving us all smiling. The best food and service I have experienced in years."

"Beautiful setting nestling under the South Downs. Inventive and superbly presented dishes. (Tho we only had starters - smoked salmon and jalapeño cheese nuggets). Well worth the trip out from the Coast. "
