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.

This is the kind of restaurant you walk by and wonder if it is any good. The answer is yes. It's very good. It comes highly recommended by people in the neighborhood and rightly so. We ate there twice. I can't tell you what I had, other than to say it was excellent. I do remember the oysters, however. Wonderful!!... More

I think the location of the restaurant tucked away from busy farringdon makes it the perfect spot for city dwellers. It is more of a friendly/colleague vibe rather than an intimate date venue. The menu is meat orientated, but that is HIX's ethos. I would not recommend for vegetarians. Although the meat especially is fantastic quality, it just seems rather... More

I see mixed reviews of this restaurant and it depends what you look for. The food is good quality ingredients and on my two visits cooked well. One might argue it is expensive for what it is and not all portions are massive but on both points I thought it okay. Mini puddings means you can share 3 between or... More

Was recommended Hix for simple British food cooked well. In that sense, it was good, but nothing special. There was nothing much accompanying the main dish, I had a few bits of chopped tomatoes & less than 10 beans. The side salad (which was extra) was a few leaves of lettuce. And the pudding was mini-puddings, so very mini-sized. So... More

A smart well presented semi formal setting for steak and seafood. I had a perfectly cooked very good sirloin with vegetables and chips (all extras). The pork scratching appetiser is a must. We stuck with the very good bottled IPA rather than go for wine and this went well with the steak. Very good attentive service from staff who also... More

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.
