For grown-up class with a hefty dollop of style and heritage, this original from Mark Hix still cuts it. Eclectic modern Brit art, white tablecloths, low lighting and high ceilings create a "perfect combination of cool and down-to-earth" that ensures a packed house throughout the week.

We were led to believe we could order any starter or main course, which later proved to be false. We were also told too late that there was only one cocktail for us…The decor in Hix Soho is somewhat confusing. There is a beautiful oyster bar and live jazz music, a goose hanging from the ceiling and a profane Hemingway...
