Open since April 2008, Hix Oyster and Chop House is situated on Green Hill Rents, just a stone's throw from London's Smithfield Meat Market.

Reminiscent of London's old oyster and chop houses, Hix always has an assortment of oysters on the menu and a range of chops, cutlets and steaks on the bone such as Porterhouse and Hanger Steak with baked bone marrow. Fish dishes are also showcased, including whole grilled fish. All ingredients are carefully sourced in the UK and prepared by the kitchen team led by Head Chef Tom Hill.

With respect to the building's history, there is an informal and traditional feel throughout. While the original tiling has been replaced, many features remain intact such as the long marble and wooden oyster bar and the original wood flooring and panelling. The bar itself has been given a face-lift and an oyster service bar has been installed on the restaurant floor, so that diners can delight in seeing their shellfish starters being prepared. As is to be expected of Mark Hix's restaurants, the menu bears all the hallmarks of his philosophy towards British dining: his passion for UK-sourced produce; a love of erudite ingredients and an appreciation of simplicity in preparation.

    It was the best bookatable so far. The main course took a while to arrive so they offered us more drinks. They added a salad to the main. We had 2 complimentary coffees at the end. Lovely staff. Highly recommend it.

    I was impressed by the efficient service and helpful knowledgeable staff who were able to answer our questions about the menu. The food was delicious and the decor and ambience were lovely. If only it was less expensive I would be a regular customer!

    It was an ok experience. Cuttlefish starter overcooked and chewy and the breaded pork was ok but nothing special

    Opened Oysters were riddled with shell fragments, Hake with cockle main had sand in the sauce. We did complain and staff, particularly the Manager handled excellently and was genuinely apologetic and generous. Nonetheless is shattered the joy.

    Very pleasant late night dining experience. We ate at the bar because we came too early for our reserved time, but that proved to be a blessing in disguise. The Canadian barman/server was very helpful and also a very nice guy.
