Weekday lunch with friends, it was fairly quiet. The service is certainly laid back, had waited around 15 minutes without being asked if we wanted drinks. I had the salmon tartare to start, perfectly nice but for £8 I would expect more than barely two mouthfuls. I'd estimate there was around 35p worth of ingredients on the plate. For my... More

The Ginger Dog is, like all of the other Ginger restaurants, very good. Our lunch was generally very good, the food leaning towards good rather than great. I did have one of the best espresso martini's i've ever had here and my partner enjoyed a local UK sparkling that is not usually found on wine lists. Service sadly was quite... More

The Ginger group have a good reputation for tasty food. They are very popular and often needs booking, although mid week here is probably not necessary. The service was ok, a bit slow considering it was quite quiet, but we were chatting so it didn't really matter. I had the steak last time I was here and this time the... More

We had a three course dinner for 8 of us and I must say the food was delicious! Every plate was completely finished. Beef cheeks were stunning and the sole wonderful. Staff friendly and not intrusive. Will be going back

Really nice Sunday lunch at the GD Roast beef ? Excellent ' roast chicken? Wonderful. One of the best road dinners in a long while. The service was a little slow but I think this was because it was all cooked fresh. We'll definitely go back.

If you like your Sunday lunches elegant and dainty, don't visit the Ginger Dog - but if you appreciate incredible food, served by lovely people in a great location with bags of character, drop in this weekend! The wine list is packed with interesting bottles at far from stupid prices and, most notably, there's a great selection available by the... More
