We were there in the quiet period straight after New Years Eve, so were able to select a great table with a view across the bar and restaurant - we loved it, not uncomfortably formal or OTT, just a cool relaxed place. Cocktails were sublime and the food was great, particularly the steak which was perfectly cooked and the oysters... More

Very overpriced for very average food. 2 of us was £236! Astounded that you have to pay for chips as an extra when you order a £40 steak. Steak ordered rare and had to be sent back as the outer 2 cm were so blackened on the outside that it was difficult to cut and eat. Come on guys -... More

We came here for dinner on a Saturday night. This HIX has a much more laid back atmosphere than the location in Soho but it was still lively and enjoyable. I was able to make a reservation day of for 4 people at 8PM, which is likely unheard of at the Soho location. We had cocktails and beer to start... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my first dining experience at this lively restaurant. Mark Hix ensures the menu contains innovative British dishes, sourced with the freshest of ingredients. I ordered every oyster I could get my hands on, and they were all fresh and delicious. I would recommend the Hix ale served in a pewter mug as an accompaniment. The hanger steak... More

I had a lovely evening here with three girlfriends. There was a dent in my champagne glass so we were given a free bottle of prosecco. That's what I call great service.

Hix has grown from this one smallish joint into a flourishing chain. Their home base has not suffered neglect though: well-managed, characterful with its old-fashioned wooden-floored presentation, and good cooking. Strong emphasis on provenance and Britishness (the salmon is smoked in Hackney!) This extends to the drinks menu too, achingly trendy with its craft beers and London-sourced cocktails. My fish...

We met for our company Christmas lunch here and enjoyed a fun afternoon. The snacks were fun, as was the good. My shellfish soup was too salty, but otherwise fine. Main was lamb chop, and was very good. Others enjoyed grouse and steak mostly. Wines were excellent. All in all as pleasant experience.

Very simple. Good, friendly service and, just what I wanted, a really good steak - one of the best I have had in London. Ideal for a no-fuss business catch up.
