I arrived at the Gingerman in Brighton’s Norfolk Square arm in arm with my hunger expecting my taste buds to be indulged. And indulged they were with a sumptuous four course lunch to celebrate the new look Gingerman. The interior of Ben McKellar’s flagship restaurant is perhaps a little less formal than its previous incarnation but the food is still top notch. Dishes brimming with flavour and flair were impeccably paired with wines from Bibendum and effortlessly served by the Gingerman’s staff. One fellow diner commented that surely a Michelin star would be shooting in McKellar’s direction soon. Now that would be a coup so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
