We have been here a few times recently. This time the prawns were sweet and tender, simple but perfectly executed. The fish fingers were succulent and chips crisp and perfectly cooked. The service was attentive and helpful. A great evening.

Sunday lunchtime. Very quiet, so chose to sit outside (in the alley, with the pigeons!). Roast chicken very tasty (no surprise as we've been to Tramshed a few times) + good steak on the bone. Friendly and efficient staff.

There used to be a great restaurant on this site called Rudland and Stubbs. It was possibly the best fish restaurant in London. My friends wanted a good steak restaurant in Smithfields, what a great surprise when I turned up to see Hix restaurant now occupying the site! And, what a great restaurant! Great service, great atmosphere, food to die... More

Went here for a work meal. We shared starters and then had a choice of mains. the starters weren't bad although they looked more flavourful than they tasted. Also there wasn't much in the way of vegetarian options for the starters, just some dip and pitta to go with it, there wasn't really enough pitta to go around and the... More

We came here for a quick late lunch (during my lunch break) in February 2016. We opted for the set lunch menu - two courses for something pretty reasonable. We both opted for a couple of oysters, which were well cooked and very tasty, and then the gammon steak - the waiter did fail to tell us that the gammon... More

Broke three cardinal restaurant rules. 1. Uncomfortable, poor acoustics so extremely noisy, over air conditioned so cold. 2. The main course (an extremely easy order, two sirloin steaks ) took 1 1/2 hours to appear and them was luke warm and full of sinew. Very unpleasant. 3. Dealt with the complaint poorly, the manager sent 4x chocolate truffles as an... More

I visited the Hix Oyster and chop house for a Business dinner, I have to say Tonnix Douro Red wine (2013) was pretty amazing and complemented the hanger steaks ( I went for rare but I should have gone for a medium rare) the oyster starter was perfect service 1st rate

Fantastic Sunday roast, in my top 5 roast in London. Great starters, desserts and wine list. First time I went service was a little slow but they were lovely and to be honest it looked as if they were short a staff member so they are forgiving, as all the other times I have been services has been on great.

Expensive but excellent lobster and brilliant chips but you must try the pork scratchings starter The wine and service were very good and there are a couple of outside tables but in a narrow street.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
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.
