It was one of those Friday business lunches with an old friend, part business part pleasure. We had a variety of subjects to discuss and did not want to be rushed. Great spacious table by the window, which was impressive as the place was full to capacity. The team were friendly, engaging and busy. We both went straight into mains... More

Rustic atmosphere that is in keeping with the Smithfield Market surroundings. We like it, its relaxed and the service is great. This is not fine dining but it is fine food, the best seasonal food prepared perfectly. Its on the expensive side but once in a while you have to splash out. Its a busy restaurant so reservations might be... More

Had a really tasty lunch here. Went on Monday on spec and got in easily. The set course menu is £24.95 for two courses. There was a lovely fish soup and delicious lamb chops, tender and meaty and served pink rather than rare. The staff were pleasant and the venue attractive. We did wait a bit long between courses, and... More

I've been on a mission recently to find an awesome Sunday lunch and happy to say Hix Chophouse at Smithsfield market doesn't disappoint. Value wise 23.95 for two courses is amazing and for an extra 4 quid you can enjoy desert, If you have room for it. The starters are amazing as you get to share 3 gems even before... More

I booked Hix last minute as my girlfriend and I decided we fancied a steak dinner near the City. My work colleague recommended it to be a great Friday night spot and we weren't dissapointed. A great Spanish acoustic guitar set that was a perfect volume accompanied our meal and really set the ambience of the place. Superb service by... More

We had an excellent dinner here, and it would have been hard to find any fault with our food. The oysters were superb, especially the fried. Everyone's steaks, ribeye and fillet, were very well received. Fillet was apparently the best she'd ever tasted. Staff were extremely attentive and friendly throughout, and it's a lovely little restaurant to sit in for... More

First time I'd been back for over 10 years, before it was a Hix...but, in décor and atmosphere, wisely, they'd not changed a thing. We sat up at the old bar ( TOP TIP - book the 2 seats that face the entrance and you have a view back over most of the restaurant. ) Yes, it is relatively expensive,... More

The problem is with reviewing Steak restaurants, is that in my humble opinion, Goodmans has raised the bar to such a level, that it is very hard to give a "very good" rating to anything else...I would want to classify this restaurant as Good.. not very good... but certainly not average. On this review I give it the better rating... More
