A fifth restaurant from Pamela and Ben McKellar, behind The Gingerman group; this new-build site has the 50-cover restaurant at the centre, complete with roof terrace.

“A massive cult favourite among people in the know in Brighton”, this Lanes outfit from Pamela & Ben McKellar’s Gingerman group is “now almost impossible to get into”, due to the fame of its small plates with “really interesting flavour combinations and seasoning”. It’s also “extremely good value”, thanks to “incredibly good use of cheap ingredients”. “Wish this was in London – but it’s a good reason to go to Brighton!”

“Innovative, delicious and charming” – this open-kitchen with counter and sharing plates venture in the ‘New Lanes’ development is “absolutely superb”. It’s also very different from its nearby siblings in Pamela & Ben McKellar’s high-performing Ginger group, and “has really succeeded in capturing a key slice of the local market”.

“A great addition to central Brighton, but totally different to other Ginger places: almost like an English Barrafina” – the fifth opening from Pamela and Ben McKellar occupies a new-build site that has a 50-cover eatery with open kitchen and counter, complete with a “pleasant upstairs bar and roof terrace”. Not everyone’s totally converted though: “the food choices are OK, but I found the limited small plates menu made it difficult to construct a great meal”.

"Such a warm, friendly environment. The meal itself was presented perfectly but not perhaps as flavoursome as last time. Overall however a super place and I wouldn’t hesitate to go there again"
