I've eaten steaks before, but I didn't know they could come this good! It sounds a bit gushing, I know, but they seem to know what they're doing. Sure, it wasn't cheap, but the sirloin was aged and very nicely prepared. I went on Monday night, when you can bring your own bottle (no corkage), which was nice. Made the... More

I met a friend for a relaxed lunch and had the fixed price set lunch which was delicious along with a bottle of Malbec. The service was good but the steak he had and the chop I had were fabulous. It is perfect for business lunches I would say but probably a special treat place with mates especially if you... More

Food was shocking and very expensive, ordinary and very badly presented. Not that I care but I had to pour my own wine. More expensive than Hawksmoor and 25% as good. DON'T GO - YOU WILL BE DISSAPOINTED

Popped over to Smithfields to meet a friend so visited Hix, I've always liked the HIx Soho so thought it was worth a visit. It's in a good location, the service is good and the food lives up to the high standards of the other Hix restaurants.

We decided to eat here because of its reputation as a good place to sample a few oysters. Not disappointed and we tried a selection of Rock, Colchester, and Lindisfarne all tasty and well presented. The steak was well cooked and tasty too. The service was a bit hit and miss, but it was well intentioned and a busy Friday... More

Went for a Tuesday business dinner and loved the whole experience. Great food of course, notably the game dumpling starter with delicately flavoured gravy. The steak main was equally good, also the roasted squash side. The wine list is maybe a little fully priced, but that's eating out these days in the City. The service was excellent: attentive without being... More

The food is terrible! I definitely won't be visiting again. We were there in a large group for a birthday. Most of us had oysters and steak but I had grouse... the oysters were not so bad... but I was told the steaks were chewy. The grouse I had was awful. Very very bitter... to be honest this was unexpected.... More

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood 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.
