About The Ox Clifton

Here at The Ox Clifton, we believe in creating exceptional food using local, seasonal produce which has been cooked to perfection by our expert chefs. And whilst steak & cocktails are at the heart of everything we do, there’s a vast range of stunning small plates, classic charcuterie, superb sides and of course, delectable desserts on offer. And whilst we’re not ones to brag, word on the street is our Sunday Roast is one of the best in Bristol! Until the end of the Summer we will be serving BRUNCH on Sundays instead of our Sunday Roast.

Fabulous food. Loved the idea of the bottomless drinks - great fun. Service was friendly and attentive and we thought it was great value for money. It was our annual 'girls' Xmas lunch' and we felt thoroughly spoilt!

Most of us thought the starter and dessert were really good however everyone had an issue with the steak (10 of us had this) being too fatty and chewy. For a steak house the steak was a real let down.

This was our second visit to The Ox on Whiteladies Road after an enjoyable first meal. We ordered the T-Bone steak for 2 and unfortunately, when it arrived it was cooked closer to medium-well rather than the medium-rare that we had ordered. Being reluctant to add to food wastage with such a cut of meat and to wait for another to be cooked to order, I informed our waitress of the cooking of the meat, but said that we were not going to return it to the kitchen. Our waitress was kind enough to offer free desserts which we accepted as a token of goodwill. My frustration is that for a specialist steak restaurant, on a relatively quiet night, I would expect the chefs to be able to cook a piece of meat to order properly. Our other frustration was that having been initially informed that the chips were cooked in a fryer free of gluten contamination (one of our party is allergic), that we were then informed that the chef did not know if he had stuck to the rules about this. Whilst we appreciate the honesty that allowed us to have an alternative, if there is a policy to keep a fryer free of contamination, it is concerning that the chef admitted he did not know if he had followed that policy. All in all, a frustrating meal out at what is not an inexpensive restaurant that I know can do better.

We had The Ox exclusively for a Christmas party and it was brilliant! Everyone involved was great from start to finish. The food was delicious and the quality didn't suffer despite being a group of 50. Great catering for dietary requirements and the gluten free vegans were as happy as the meat eaters. Thanks for such an exceptional night!

Portion size of main vegetarian meal was far too small. It cost £13 + and was the size of a starter. Rest of food was quite good.

1. More bread with sharing platter starter 2. Bigger jugs of gravy with Sunday roasts 3. Service charge being added to bill for 2 diners, probably not needed

Staff were all very welcoming and we really loved the atmosphere of the venue. My friends enjoyed steak that they said will 'out of this world'. The fish was also delicious. We had a brilliant mid week evening and felt spoilt. Thank you

Excellent roast dinner full of flavour and one of the best I’ve had in Bristol recently. Very accommodating for children also whilst still feeling like a nice afternoon out!
