This is a favourite for entertaining for business as there is something on the menu for everyone. The service is super friendly and fast.

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

We were staying nearby and stumbled upon this place. Nice location, bright and clean inside and good fish options - neither of us eat meat. The team were great, very flexible (I wanted a few oysters with my starter) and persuaded us to 'test' a number if wines before we made our choice. I would have paid double the price... More

Delicious fresh oysters and excellent meat. The staff is very polite and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for huge tender and taste full steak and oysters.

A swift but memorable lunch. Short of time so just two courses, beautifully prepared moist plaice, with perfect new potatoes accompanied by minted peas and broad beans. An excellent (and decent value) bottle of Albarino between us, and the meal finished off with English cheeses, a smelly and runny "brie" type, and a flavoursome but not overtart blue. Yum.

Just finished up another fine meal at Hix Oyster & Chop House, great food, friendly service and tasty cocktails too. I loved it! This restaurant isn't cheap, but good things don't come cheap! Definitely worth treating yourself...

I enjoyed a decent business lunch at Hix, and I would recommend it. The food was excellent, very well prepared and served. The service and knowledge of the staff was superb. It is quite a small place, so you will probably have to book if you're looking to seat over 4. The steak and bone marrow was really very nice.... More

Try the fillet on the bone - excellent - as for the rest it's good - but for me overall still a cut below hawksmore
