We say

Round Brighton way you can’t really go wrong with any restaurant that’s got a “Ginger” in its name; The Ginger Fox is the country outpost of a foodie mini-empire that also encompasses the reliably excellent Ginger Dog and Ginger Pig gastro-pubs and the Gingerman restaurant in Brighton. Like its sister pubs, the emphasis food-wise is on the local and seasonal, so you’ll find Harveys beer and Ridgeview wine behind the bar, and local meat and fish on the menu (in mains such as rib-eye with duck fat chips, or fillet of skate with samphire). The pub itself is a lovely old whitewashed building with picture-perfect thatch (topped by a thatched fox), and outside there’s a lovely large garden with a small play area – just one of the things that will keep children happy, along with a treasure hunt and a special kids’ menu featuring home-made ice-cream.

A real find! ★★★★★

Not far from Devil's Dyke with some of the best views in Sussex we think this must be one of the best pubs in Sussex. Had a fabulous Sunday lunch at The Ginger Fox. We hadn't booked but they managed to squeeze us (and our dog) in the bar area where we enjoyed a great meal. My minced beef and onion pie was one of the best pies I've ever eaten - like a beef casserole in a pie with juicy chunks of beef and perfect pastry and gravy. The roast pork belly was delicious and the kids tucked into their macaroni cheese (leftovers mopped up by us it was so good) and squealed with delight at their popping space candy ice creams! Great service, very friendly, relaxed and cosy. Highly recommended.
