City firms looking for a stellar place for their office Christmas party really ought to consider Hix Oyster & Chop House. Located just moments from Smithfield Market and a short walk from Farringdon station, this 70-cover restaurant has been serving up top-quality meat and seafood for over a decade, so hungry parties looking to indulge in a festive feast will be in very safe hands.
The restaurant can be hired exclusively for large parties of up to 70 seated guests (ideal for the office Christmas meal), though if it’s a smaller party you’re booking for – perhaps a Christmas meal for family or friends – there are two semi-private dining spaces available. These are located in the raised sections of the restaurant and seat up to 32 guests. The interior is subtly decorated with a marble oyster bar, wooden floors, tiled walls and British artworks on the walls, making for a relaxed environment in which to focus on the excellent food and drink on offer.
As with all of Mark Hix’s restaurants, the menus here reflect the chef’s signature British style and commitment to seasonality, meaning you’re likely to find dishes featuring oysters from around the British Isles along with a selection of meat and steaks on the bone. For Christmas though, Hix Oyster & Chop House has devised a number of festive feast sharing menus designed to cater for everyone. Choose from traditional Goosnargh turkey, Swainson House Farm chicken, Peter Hannan’s Glenarm Estate Beef and plenty of options for vegetarian and vegan guests.
Each festive feast menu includes a selection of sharing starters followed by a main course, finished with a family-style dessert. There’s an option to add a cheese course and paired wines can also be arranged. If you have any questions of would like to discuss the possibility of tweaking the menus in order to cater to the dietary requirements of your party, simply speak to one of the friendly events team.
