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.

Really enjoyed dining with you! My partner loves The Ox we've been to your other chains. Staff were polite and attentive. Would definitely recommend. I'm not a gin lover. Would be nice to have other cocktails on the menu.

Good food, great service, but a bit overpriced for what is essentially a decent steak. Wine is a rip off and the non alcoholic cocktail was just a juice, no effort really made. Really good service from the staff but not worth over £100 for 2 people, shared a starter and a desert and only one glass of wine.

The desserts were embarrassingly small a cheesecake the size of my index finger, the waitress said it was very rich, it was not and it was not very special. Did chef forget to order it ? Chocolate mouse filled half a small glass, so mean unbelievable very stodgy and thick. The chefs should check the quality it was poor. Steaks were great shame about puddings and lack of choice for starters.

I’ve visited The Ox several times over the years and have to say it’s consistent and faultless! The service is always spot on, friendly and efficient, well informed staff. The food is wonderful! Superb quality, good portions and great choices. Without a doubt always the best steak in Bristol.

Lighting is too dark Friendly service My husband's rump steak was cooked better than my fillet steak. I think there could be a wider variety of veg and salads on menu

Food desperately average for the price range. Fried sprouts were almost inedible (and we love sprouts), mushrooms tasted terrible. Salad stingy (ditto ribs starter). Steak nothing to write home about (and we eat / cook a lot of steak). Drinks were fine but overpriced. Atmosphere zero - to be expected for the time of day but the welcome was non-existent and the room was so cold, my wife actually had to put her coat on after 20 mins or so. The waitress was bored, distracted and going through the motions. All in all, quite honestly we felt ripped off. We stumped up £155 including 'automatic gratuity' (for what?) and when got up to leave no one even bothered to say cheerio. We dine out a lot, always ready to spend extra for quality, but it's safe to say this restaurant is frankly rubbish, and we won't be back.

Fantastic steak but rather expensive especially with sides and sauce. Menu for non beef eaters was a little limited. Kids menu was very good. Shame it was a little quiet, although it was early.

Took my partner for the Early Evening Deal. Good value for money, steak was amazing, loads of flavour and really well cooked. Slightly disappointed we got fries instead of thick cut chips and it came with no veg. Relaxed atmosphere, service was excellent, and the decor is really plush. Overall, a good dining experience and we'll definitely go back.

The Ox serves some great food with attention to detail on every dish, e.g. The kale sides seasoned well with thyme - nice touch. It was a little bit loud in there due to a party at the time of our visit, but not a problem for us as we were a group of 4, maybe a little loud for a date. Staff were friendly and attentive, but I did get confused who was who due to a lack of uniform. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone for decent, chilled yet high-quality food!

Service was superb, I have eaten better steak and for the money it was a little disappointing, starters and pudding faultless, I didn't complain at the time as I didn't wish to spoil our evening, you just expect it to be right first time
