Hix Mayfair can be found inside the famous Brown’s Hotel in London. Director of Food Mark Hix has created this impressive and ever popular restaurant, which is headed up by Executive Chef Lee Streeton.

Everything about Hix Mayfair is smart. The building is beautiful, the staff are immaculate and the interior is sophisticated. From the crisp white linen on the tables to the impressive artwork collection on the walls - featuring well-know British artists – this restaurant encompasses everything ‘London’.

We’d heard that Hix Mayfair is the place to be for Sunday lunch, and we were only to happy to check it out.

“Now this is how Sunday lunch should be done.”

We were greeted and shown to our table by friendly and willing staff, and were introduced to the menu. The menu is very good. Lee Streeton has put together a menu that features the best local and seasonal produce around. This menu is a collection of British classics that alongside the interior and feel of the restaurant itself embody the feeling of ‘London’.

We started with wine, and chose a bottle of the 2012 Argentinian Malbec, which was delicious. The wine list at Hix Mayfair is comprehensive and makes for a great read.

To start, we ordered Jimmy Butler’s free-range ham hock croquettes with whipped Bramley apples, and the wild watercress soup with a boach Bantam’s egg.

For our main courses, we both opted for the roast sirloin of Glenarm beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, parsnips and broccoli stems.

The food was simply indulgent. The flavours were fresh and everything was so perfectly cooked and seasoned that you could really taste the passion from the team of Chefs. The beef itself was carved at your tableside on a trolley, and the Yorshire puddings were to die for. Now this is how Sunday lunch should be done.

If you’re looking to increase your own Sunday lunch skills, it’s worth knowing that Hix Mayfair also host Carving Masterclasses where you can learn all there is to know about this quintessentially British skill.

We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely Sunday lunch at Hix Mayfair. It was the kind of lunch where we could have stayed there for hours, and we’re certain the staff would have graciously accommodated us for as long as we wanted. The food was impeccable, the service also, and that’s why, if you haven’t already, we strongly encourage you put Sunday lunch at Hix Mayfair on your to-do list immediately!
