Food quality of breakfast has gone downhill. Bacon was rubbery.

2 breakfasts with 3 drinks cost us 40 quid - seems overpriced for the quality we got

Went for brunch , food was lovely . I had the full English, however I’m intolerant to egg so asked to swap the two eggs for extra mushrooms and tomato to be told they don’t do swaps and I would be charged extra instead. I have never had this from anywhere I have eaten, in fact when I ask for no egg I am always asked what I want instead. I heard two other tables with the same request told the same . Have to say I think it’s pretty disgraceful and the poor waiting staff were embarrassed having to impart this information. A swap for a cheaper item shouldn’t be rejected . Due to this and most items containing egg I doubt I will return which is a shame as I enjoyed eating there

Staff were lovely. Cocktails were great. Ambience very nice. Let down by the food. I had lamb, the meat was rather dry and overcooked, I could barely find the vegetables. Really a plate of mediocre meat. Nobody in our party of four had a good plate of food. Such a shame as everything else is fine.

We specifically went based on the fact that sharing plates were on the menu. When we were given our menus they were vastly reduced with no sharing plates. Rather disappointing!

A generally nice and relaxed place with good food and drink. Service was decent and unhurried - as it should be for Sunday brunch. It's good to get a table in the window to watch the world go by from.

Horrendous service, we were ignored and they didn’t give us food menus. And when we asked for a menu they said the kitchen was closed at 8:30 and that we couldn’t order any food!!

We will never recommend this restaurant.

Disgusting service !!!!

The overall exerience was quite good, there were limited food options for lunch, not a full menu and even some of those were not available (at midday). Staff were atentive and friendly and the wine was exeptional. The food was decent if not outstanding. I would go again if we were given a better table!

Food was excellent and despite a small issue with a meal, they were helpful in rectifying the problem. Staff were also accommodating with my child as they offered a high chair and space for the stroller. Cakes were also delicious!

We thought the staff were charming and attentive.

We loved the venue which had a pleasant 'buzz'.

My wife's scrambled egg and smoked salmon was lovely, however, there were items of my full English were sereved cold. I appreciate we were a large table and the chiefs were trying to get the table served as one. It would have helped if it had been servered on a hot plate.

Kind regards

Lovely brunch menu which didn't disappoint when it arrived. Just a shame it took so long - an hour from sitting down to the whole table being served. Still we'd go back again and recommend to others.

I would highly recommend Hixon Green for informal dining. Good food and plenty of choice, including vegan. But book, even for lunch.

Food was very greasy - scrambled egg resembled an oily omelette & it came with 2 hairs - very disappointing. Coffee was good & the waitress was friendly. There are so many other places to eat in Brighton & Hove unfortunately I won’t be back.

We really enjoyed our evening, the staff were attentive and friendly. The food was good. I had the fish which was very good and my husband had a chicken dish, also very good. We would go back.

Staff were very accommodating as usual and food excellent.
Only 2 minor complaints, I ordered the breakfast tea again and on both occasions my cup ended up full of tea leaves , maybe tea bags would work better . Also plates were served but no cutlery and had to ask .
Will still be back for more 😊

I'm so pleased that my Open Table Dining Voucher made me look at different options to eat because it brought us to Hixon Green for dinner.

We've had breakfast here many times, which was good but the Dinner experience and particularly the service we received from Harry has added this to our list of favourite places to eat in Brighton and Hove.

Really impressed. Food was great, wide range of drinks and as before, excellent service - very fun, friendly and knowledgeable.
We'll be back soon I hope :-)

First time we had eaten here, although have been previously for cocktails! Brunch was lovely and the service great too. We sat upstairs which was nice and quiet - would recommend for drinks or brunch! Our two boys really enjoyed their full english!

Despite booking a table almost a week in advance, we were given a table right at the back of the restaurant wedged under the staircase between the toilets and the kitchen. When we asked if we could have the empty table in the window, we were told it was reserved. Saying that we too had reserved a table seemed of little interest to the staff seating us. Maybe it's better to reserve by phone than use this on-line booking service.

Waiting staff were relatively attentive but looked miserable.

Food was OK, but nothing special. Will not be back for a while, as there are plenty of alternative places to choose from in Hove.

Food good but eggs slightly over cooked. Good noise levels and ambience for business meetings - the staff being so unattentive is a plus and a minus, I always find it annoying when the staff keep pestering you and interrupting your flow in business meetings, at the same time, it's annoying if you can't get someone's attention when you want them. Less attentive is the lesser of two evils, I guess.

When I booked I was asked if it was a special occasion or any requests. I wrote that it was my daughters birthday that day but it was not acknowledged in anyway. Food was great though.

We booked a table for lunch (1.30) on Sunday for Father’s Day but was disappointed to find the restaurant only serves breakfast until 3pm. The breakfast was ok but in my view over priced. The ambiance and staff were lovely.

Visited on Sun afternoon with friends, prior to going to see with Elton John in concert close by. Great atmosphere, not rushed off the table at all.

Really good brunch, avocado on toast was particularly good, as was the peanut butter. Amazing selection of cakes which we also felt compelled to try, favourite was the blueberry cake, carrot cake also good but missed the cream cheese icing. Great wine and champagne selection and really reasonable prices.

Had been recommended this place by a friend from Brighton, if am in Hove again would definitely pay another visit.

Nice atmosphere unfortunately asked for a rare steak, it was nearer to well done.
I didn’t send it back as was on a date and my date for the evening had her food and it would have meant having to wait and would have been a bit awkward.

The service was a little on the slow side we were taken to the table but no one came to ask for a drinks order etc. The waiter did say they were under staffed this particular day, the staff were very pleasant I did like the fact we were not hurried for time.

First time here and won't be the last. Went with friends and we were all very impressed with the outlay. The food was amazing and continuing supply of water.
Can't fault it and a wonderful experience. May have to give the evening menu a whirl.
