THE popular Gingerman Restaurant Group is launching a new restaurant next month.

To be known as Flint House, the restaurant will be located in a stand alone, two-storey building, at the centre of the new Hanningtons Lane, Brighton.

There will be more than 50 seats and a roof top terrace with adjacent green wall and views across the Lanes.

The Ginger chef Ben McKellar, together with wife and business partner Pamela McKellar, started Gingerman Restaurant Group in 1998, with their flagship restaurant The Gingerman, in Norfolk Square.

Ben said: “Flint House is about casual dining, small plates, simple local ingredients cooked well, and a wide range of quality wines served by the glass.

“The Lanes is somewhere people want to linger and we have the perfect roof top terrace for them to grab a glass of wine, bite to eat and do just that.”

Pamela said: “We are very excited to be creating a new concept restaurant for central Brighton.

“Morgan Carn Architects has designed a beautiful flint clad centerpiece to Hanningtons Estate and we are working with Landivar to create an equally first class interior finish, with a full length kitchen bar and outside tables.”

Andrew Foulds, Portfolio Director at Redevco, said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better restaurant operator to occupy the jewel in the crown of this scheme.

“Gingerman Restaurant Group has four existing local businesses within its portfolio and a strong Brighton following.

“Their philosophy is to offer really good food and great service within a relaxed setting.”
