Hix Oyster & Chop House - Clerkenwell

36-37 Greenhill Rents, Cowcross Street, London, London, EC1M 6BN
A good bistro-style restaurant, doing just what it says on the tin - plus some.

It has been converted from a previous fish restaurant (Rudland & Stubbs) and the new owners - headed by top chef Mark Hix - have left many of the original features, including the bare boards & panelling.

If you have oysters, you can watch them being prepared, but the menu also offers plenty of other seasonal shellfish, plus other carefully-sourced British products.

A summer menu listed 'Blythburgh Pork Crackling with Apple Sauce'; 'Chilled Tomato Soup with Grated Horseradish & Rapeseed Oil'; 'Cornish Pilchards & Tomatoes on Toast'; 'Herb-Baked Cheek & Green Bean Salad' and 'Salted Ox Cheek & Green Bean Salad' among the starters.

'Ling Fish Fingers with Mushy Peas'; 'Whole John Dory with Marsh Samphire'; 'Mixed Grill of Blythburgh Pork with Bramley Apple Sauce'; 'Wild Rabbit in Burrow Hill Cider with Scottish Girolles' plus various top-quality steaks listed among the mains.

Desserts are equally seasonal, but 'Elderflower & Gooseberry Pie'; 'Raspberry Cheesecake' and 'Amedei Chocolate Mousse' set the style. While those with a more savoury tooth might be tempted by 'Welsh Rabbit' or their selection of Artisan British Cheeses.
