Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“Such a beautiful setting looking over the harbour in this candlelit room” helps inspire many rapturous reviews for Mark Hix’s cliff-top venture, which at its best delivers “sparklingly fresh and simple fish and seafood”; and “a great choice of indigenous drinks (Dorset sparkling wine, local apple brandy)” too. Even some who say “it’s a great spot” fear “it has become a little complacent” however, and one or two reports were of “dull and un-special” cooking this year.
“The most awesome views” over Lyme Bay reward a trip to Mark Hix’s “beautifully located” cliff-top venture. “It’s not the cheapest”, but while to a few critics the fish and seafood is “a bit low on wow-factor”, to most who have made the pilgrimage it’s as “stunning” as the “beautiful location”.
“Glorious views over Lyme Bay” reward a trip to Mark Hix’s “fun and casual” glass-fronted cliff-top venture, nowadays a major destination; on most accounts the “extremely fresh and simple” seafood matches up well too, even if “it’s priced for the tourist crowd”.
Hix Oyster & Fish House Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Wonderful location, happy service but somewhat dull menu choices. Why little local Dorset fish rather than seafood bought up all the way from west Cornwall!"
"Outstanding fish menu in great location."
