The Flint House restaurant will launch in the heart of the upcoming Hannington’s Estate development in The Lanes next January.
The 50-cover restaurant will occupy a standalone, two-storey building featuring a rooftop terrace.
“Flint House is about casual dining, small plates, simple local ingredients cooked well, and a wide range of quality wines served by the glass,” says Gingerman co-founder Ben McKellar.
“The Lanes is somewhere people want to linger and we have the perfect rooftop terrace for them to grab a glass of wine, bite to eat and do just that.”
McKellar started the Gingerman group with his wife and business partner Pamela in 1998 with the launch of their flagship site The Gingerman, close to Brighton seafront.
The group has since opened The Ginger Dog in Brighton, The Ginger Pig in Hove, and The Ginger Fox over the South Downs near to Hassocks. It is also set to launch a restaurant at the delayed £60m Soho House project on Brighton seafront.
“We plan to open January 2019 and are very excited to be creating a new concept restaurant for central Brighton,” says Pamela.
“Morgan Carn Architects have 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.”
Work on the 1.3 acre Hannington’s Estate development, which includes the former Hanningtons department store, began in February 2017.
The masterplan for the project includes the creation of a new Lane and reconfiguration of the existing shops to provide new space for restaurants, retailers and cafes.
