Hix is rated as one of the best steak restaurants in London. The service is very good, the place is very casual and the menu is pretty varied if you like oyster, fish and steak. We had the crackling which was delicious, followed by some nice starters. Went for the sirloin on the bone and have to say, most definitely... More

Incredible loch ryan oysters with ponzu sauce. The T-bone was disappointing considering the high price.

Last minute dinner with no booking on a busy xmas week but the staff found us a space at the bar. Top notch from then on. The heaven and the earth starter (wild boar black pudding) was rich but worth every bite. For mains we both had the veal chop - at £35 it must be one of the most... More

Tasty food served pleasantly in a casual atmosphere. Nothing here to rave about or travel far to visit, but a good restaurant in the area.

With such a well known reputation for having the best steaks in East Central I thought Hix would be an ideal restaurant to take my clients visiting from Holland for our final dinner of the year - a christmas treat, on Friday 9th December. The restaurant was very busy which is understandable at this time of year, and they quickly... More

Thought that the experience of the food would be better. Apart from the steak which was delicious which my daughter had and the beetroot goats curd starter, the rest of the meal was not worth the price we paid. It is a lovely restaurant and the staff were good but I have been to other restaurants and paid less for... More

Start to finish really poor service. Food poorly seasoned and terribly cooked/inedible - One of the worst meals of 2016 and would never go back. Such a let down considering others previously good reviews.

We went here last minute on a Monday night and I was genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised. The steaks were amazing. Meat was fantastic and full of flavour. The best steak I have had in London. It is expensive, so would highly recommend you take your own wine as it is BYO, which makes it even better as you can drink... More

Having been here once before and having had a very nice meal, I took my wife and friends here..totally embarrassed that I suggested this place. We arrived at 825pm, waited 10 mins for our table which was reserved for 830pm. We ordered within about 15 mins but then waited 90 mins for our main course. Worst meal I have had... 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.
