House baked bread was shining star

The shining star here during our visit was the house baked bread. Service was attentive and pleasant, and the atmosphere was buzzing and comfortable. If we had it to do over again, we might have chosen different entrees, the beef wasn't a stand-out, but WAS good. We loved the oyster starters and... read more

The bread, the steak tartar, the lamb mutton curry, the veg, the cheese board, the beers, the service, the atmosphere. All faultless. Came to about £80 a head which was fair.

My boyfriend and I went to have a nice meal in Hix restaurant, near Smithfield’s market. Unfortunately the South Devon Ruby Red fillet steak (apparently worth 36,50GBP) cooked medium rare according to the chef, was really dry and overcooked, my boyfriend send it back asking for really red, even blue this time, it came back exactly the same dry and...

Lovely setting quite busy, but service was good and food wonderful. We were shown the cuts of meat and portion sizes, prior to ordering. I had the Hanger steak and Marrowbone, which was delicious and very filling, accompanied with Fries and Beetroot with Horseradish. Try the chocolate mousse if you really want indulgence.

My husband and I went to Hix for a lovely meal, we fancied oysters and steak and after trailing the Internet for suggestions we decided on Hix. We were not disappointed, the food was superb. We had a selection of oysters for starters and shared the porterhouse steak for 2 for our mains. It was pricey but in our opinion... More

We headed to Hix, which has a good reputation, before a trip to the Barbican. We were booked in for 5 when the place opened. We ordered a main course each which took 40 mins to arrive and there were no other diners there. The pleasant waitress said, after 35 mins that it took longer because we had not ordered... More

Knew it as Rudland and Stubbs years ago, but it's now far too noisy without any atmosphere, just quick service and insincere smiles. But the real downer is price. The food is not bad, oysters decent, fish good nothing special, deer, a bit tough but tasty, but £192 for a bottle of Sancerre (£48) one turbot, one deer plate couple... More

Go for a riveting Bloody Mary. The bartender here gets this right, royally. My steak was good, not great. Pork scratchings more-ish. Service amicable.

Service was attentive but not overbearing and we stayed for well over four hours without being asked to move on, despite the restaurant being full.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
