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.

I visited recently with a couple of colleagues for a celebration. The atmosphere is great; sophisticated, but relaxed. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. But most importantly the food and wine was fantastic. Started with a beautiful seafood soup, followed by a supremely tender and flavoursome rib of beef. It was quite possibly some of best beef I've ever... More

Firstly this is not the first time I have dined here so this is not a one off review. The place is not charming, its freezing cold inside and generally uncomfortable, service was a bit hit and miss and for these prices you would expect a whole lot more. Totally in favour of a small unfussy menu but that means... More

Everything started well and everyone was enjoying themselves until the food arrived. All the waiting staff had until this point been brilliant, but the person who served the food responded to a simple request to cook a piece of steak slightly more with arrogance, aggression and was probably the rudest person I have ever encountered. The steak disappeared for 15... More

Brilliant meat - both game & farmed. Fantastic cuts and a great list of alcohol to go with each type of meat. A limited menu and pricey at that but truly a meat lovers paradise

Booked a late afternoon meal. Atmosphere lively with those still there from lunchtime. I opted for Barnsley lamb chops for my main - perfectly cooked and perfectly delicious. The Tewksbury mustard/horseradish was a treat. Cauliflower cheese was excellent as were the parsnips. I'd had Atlantic prawns for starters and they were super succulent. The staff were all very friendly and... More

I came here recently for a business dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was very tasty, though portion sizes were on the small side. The only real complaints/ negatives though were the noise and the proximity to other diners. The venue is small and has tiled walls - which means that all noise simply bounced and reverberates around.... More
