Dine at the Gingerman

Hi, me again. I have booked a table for eight at the renowned Gingerman. This is the posh one in the Ginger group. I have experienced the Gingerpig and the Gingerdog and they were both fabulous. Great wine and food and atmosphere, so I am really excited about the Gingerman which is supposed to be the best in the group. Please join  me for a fun evening. Again special request for gentlemen as we like a mixed table.

    I received the invite too late as made alternative plans. Sounds like it was a great night and would love to make the next one.

      Hi JG. I'm sorry it all changed so much last minute. Don't worry at all. We didn't expect you to come with such short notice.

      PS I'm not sure if I will be doing any more. I'll have to speak to the bosses. I'm just a fill in.

    A wonderful evening; the venue, the food, the service... cannot fault any of it. Another big 'thank you' to host Ruth. Looking forward to more of these in future, :-)

    Thanks very much Ruth for organising last night. Really enjoyed it, great fun and what service from the restaurant with the bill, they almost deserved their second tip! :-)

    • Ruthie

  • Diana

    Will you let me know if you do manage to book another table?

    • Ruthie

      I did try, but no luck I'm afraid.

  • Ruthie

    I am really sorry everyone. I have tried to book another table, but no joy. If it's good, we can always go again. X

    Ahh real shame no more spots, don't suppose a small one can be squeezed on to the end of the table??

    January 22, 2014

    • Ruthie

      Hi Clare. I wish I could, but the maître d' was quite sniffy about a table for 8 saying that was the biggest table they do. If enough people are interested I could see if they'll do another table for six or eight. That might work. What do you think?

    • Kate S.

      yes yes please

      January 24, 2014

  • Ruthie

    Hi Clive. That's brilliant that you are coming. Hooray for another male presence! (Don't get me wrong, I love women, but a bit more diversity is good for conversation). I am looking forward to hearing about your groups.
    I remember the smoking taste thing. Food is fantastic isn't it?

    January 23, 2014

    • Clive H.

      Hi Ruth, thank you

      January 24, 2014

    • Clive H.

      Im really looking forward to it, the Gingerman has been a restaurant I've wanted to get to for ages. Food and wine is a combination forged in heaven, forgive me if I go quiet during each mouthful, whIch is much more polite anyway. Look forward to meeting everyone. Clive

    Hi Ruth, Thanks 4 even suggesting it! Don't want to cause u more work, but that wld be great if possible as wld love 2 come! And after slipping on yr 'nasty' outfit earlier sure no spots will open up now ;) so another table will be the only option 2 be able 2 join.

    January 23, 2014

  • Ruthie

    Right, I'm going to put my nasty school mistress outfit on (no fetish comments please) now so gird yourselves.
    I have been looking through the past Meetups and am horrified by the number of people who cancel at the last minute with pathetic excuses. There are some repeat offenders. I hate this kind of rudeness and will personally come and whip the bottoms of anyone who does this to me. (No seriously though, this is so rude and I definitely won't book anyone in again who does this to me).
    So if you're the kind of person who thinks it's ok to cancel at the last minute because 'something's come up' or you 'have financial issues' or have a cold, or whatever, please don't book with me.
    Having said that, you all look lovely and I know several of you and know you aren't the type to do this. So forgive me my rant. Xx

      Isn't 'I'm going to put my nasty school mistress outfit on' a fetish comment in itself? :-o
      You'll have a very long waiting list now... ;-)

      Oops you got me

      1 · January 23, 2014

  • Ruthie

    I'm really, really bad at this. i keep thinking I have replied to everyone, but there is no sign of it here! So sorry. You'll be lucky to get any dinner at this rate.
    No honestly I promise they are all booked.
    Anyway, this is to say, I am looking forward to meeting you all very much and a big thank you to Bill for being the only other man so far. My husband is very releived.

      Clive is there too to bolster the male contingent. I look forward to meeting all of you at one of Hove's best restaurants.
