We had a good Sunday lunch here. Although there was a very large party of some 40 people taking over more than half the restaurant, the staff looked after us well and we had a good meal. Some of the food was OK but dull,...More

The service here was good and not too over the top. The food was good but it wouldn't necessarily make me want to return visit. I had the duck salad which was ok and then the mutton curry which was very nice and about the...More

This restaurant came recommended by a local and it didn’t disappoint. The oysters were simply divine. Steaks brilliant. A solid wine list topped off a brilliant experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff too.

We'd booked a table for 8 well in advance. On the day they ran out of sharing steaks, Smithfield market is just over the road ! Prawns were overcooked and sent back. Scallops, Oysters and Treacle tart were excellent. The dining area is attractive and...More

A delightful lunch for 4, food excellent, although service felt a little rushed. The front door is stuck so you need to give it a really good shove to get in - not such an elegant way to start. Squid starter, followed by steak &...More

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

HIX Oyster & Chop House is situated a stones throw from Smithfield Market, London’s historic meat market. Originally a sausage factory and then a fish restaurant, many of its original features remain. The wooden floors, marble oyster bar, tiled walls and linen tablecloths go towards creating an elegant yet unfussy dining room. The menu reflects Mark Hix’s signature British style with seasonal and daily changing dishes featuring oysters from around the British Isles, and a selection of meats and steaks on the bone.
