Table for 5 on Christmas eve morning, 4 of us attending, Food took over 45 mins which wasn't too bad as we enjoyed each others company so much.
3 plates arrived 2 hot one quite cold then the last one was served around 5 mins later. Manners being present we all eat together the food got cold by then so we started without the 4th plate being served.
So the food was very nice apart from one being served cold however they did not have any ketchup!! Its very common to like ketchup to accompany a cooked full English.
VERY DISAPPOINTING
when charging £11.95 for eggs and bacon etc a sauce should be available. The waiter said they had run out and he was sorry. The fact that there is a shop opposite and they could have stocked up on some or one bottle being a special day this a is ridiculous excuse. This is suppose to be an up market place and has been a huge disappointment. They had a large bottle of heinze mayonnaise on the kitchen area so what excuse is do they have for not serving ketchup?
ITS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAZY AND UNORGANISED the largest tescos in Hove is 100 meters away. I didnt mention it again after we finished as to not upset my guests but I am really disappointed that my guests were not satisfied especially on Christmas eve!

Fabulous food and lovely atmosphere but waited at the front desk for five minutes before we waved someone over to be seated. Then waited a while before we waved someone over to order some drinks. Service polite but very slow. Waiters walked by several times without coming over..... Food however was wonderful - delicious and good portions.

Very quiet in there yet service was very slow and got our order wrong twice.

Think it’s quite expensive for what it is

Nice lunch at Hixon, friendly staff. We were a mixed friends group so had to outside but it was fine the weather was kind to us. We all loved the squid and my son absolutely loved his hot chocolate. Burgers were also tasty.

Always good food and good value. Been very happy eating there during restrictions, very clean and well organized and has a nice relaxed feel about it, and I suspect, a lot of regulars.

What a shame. The food was so-so, the lights too bright and the service, although the lovely new girl was great, it was very perfunctory. Such a shame.

While the food was delicious and the coffee warm and comforting! The service was not good. Although making a booking, they had not reserved a table for us. We instead had to wander around with the waiter and find a space. Luckily there was a decent sized table free. Then the meals were very slow!! We waited 40 mins for our brunch. 3 of us had ordered the same meal, nothing complicated. No reason for it to be slow. Especially as the restaurant had empty tables, they were not at capacity. A waiter did apologise.
Lastly, although all workers were wearing masks, the three that we engaged with all had their masks under their nose. One only had it on his chin!

Promptly took our drinks order, but then no one came to our table for over half an hour, until I had to ask to be served for them to take our food order. Our dish included a side order of risotto which was undercooked for all of us.

It's a shame due to the slow initial service, which distorted and ruined the rest of our plans for the evening (we had to push back tailgating reservations that we allowed plenty of time for).

It does have a great gluten free menu though,

waiter service was poor, multiple waiters tending to the table but lack of communication between all of them. lottery if you got what you asked for depending on which waiter you asked.

the head waiter however was very attentive and apologised for the waiting times particularly on food.

despite this it was a pleasant experience

I ate at two branches in one day. Lewes and Hove.
Food and venue perfect at both.
Music levels too loud in both - especially s meant to be lowered for covid precautions.
The toilets let the Hove branch down - not clean enough.
Will definately go back to both.

We booked to have a team work catch up as we hadn't seen each other since lockdown. It was the perfect place to meet!
The coffee was great, the breakfast baps were amazing and the service was even better!
They even brought a water bowl over for the dogs!
Covid measures were put in place and we felt very safe.
Deffo recommend and deffo going to book again!
Thank you for a great experience and a great breakfast. :-)

Fabulous late lunch. We had a vegetable tagliatelle and prawn linguine. They were both delicious.
I think they could source much nicer red wines and give customers better value

Superfood salad was tasteless, quinoa needs added flavouring to help it, a good dressing would have helped - sadly very poor

The food was lovely, but I felt the welcome we had from the first member of staff (an older lady) wasn’t very welcoming. However, the waiting staff were very friendly. The overall experience felt quite rushed. I don’t think we behaved an antisocial manner (I was with my elderly mother), but it was almost as if staff couldn’t wait for us to leave. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy, so I don’t understand the rush. I’m not sure if I’d recommend or not...

Food was good but expensive for size of portion.
Mojito was more ice than drink and again expensive.
I would return but not that often due to prices as its casual dining the way it's laid out

Had a great time in this restaurant but unfortunately my avocado smash was not enjoyable .It was loaded with spring onions and not pleasant at all
My coffee was stewed and my saucer had crumbs on it with a dirty teaspoon which put me completely of my coffee And at these Covid times very unacceptable
But the service was very good
