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.

Well, thought it was one of the best steakhouse in bristol but I was wrong and I've had better elsewhere and cheaper too. First of all, starter was flavourless without any seasoning and not sure if it was meant to be a cold dish or not for the the scallops and wings. I've had a ribeye and my brother bad sirloin but again wasn't much flavours or seasoning, other meets looks overcooked and burnt even for a medium rare ordered. A bit tough and chewy and not the best quality steak I've had elsewhere in bristol. Two people including tips is £90 and that's for one Starter, two steaks, shared chips and one cappuccino.

The steak and wine was lovely, these are clear strengths at the Ox. The service was polite, but I must mention however during our booking, after we had ordered our food, our starters were brought at different times meaning my partner and I effectively ate one after the other. Our waiter apologized for the confusion, but no further action was taken. At the end of our meal when asked how it was, I mentioned how much I enjoyed the food and wine, but was disappointed that we ate our starters one after the other instead of together, to which the different waitress processing my payment for the meal simply said "Oh" and took no other action. This dulled the night and didn't really meet the service I expect from such a well regarded restaurant

Service was great, friendly and attentive but not over the top. Food was delicious as always, my only criticism, if I was to be picky, would be the steak knives needed sharpening! 10/10 though!

Sharing board was nice quality although at £18 was a lot of money for what it was, there needs to be more on there. My main of a burger was great quality meat although there needs to be a way of stopping the buns soaking up the excess liquid from the meat. House wine is very good. The desserts looked great but sadly we were too full to have one.

Great place with great food and a good atmosphere. Was quite expensive, would be better if you didn’t have to pay extra for sides and sauces. Staff were very attentive. Overall, would probably recommend.

We brought my husband here and had a lovely Father’s Day lunch on Sunday, with fabulous food and a great atmosphere. Our 2 sons (13 & 9), for their first visit, thoroughly approved of my choice of restaurant! We’ll be back!

We went for the sharing steak deal and it was amazing! Great customer service all evening. Food was fantastic. Obviously steak was amazing but I particularly liked the pineapple sorbet too. A really great experience. Can’t wait to go back.

By far the tastiest meal I’ve eaten all year. Every bite was delicious and we couldn’t fault a thing. Wonderful service too.

Fries were too salty and that spoil the effect of the delicious steak.

We have been here before (about 12 months ago) and it was excellent. However this time the food was sub-standard. The meat was incredibly fat and took a lot of chewing. There wasn't as much flavour to the meat either. It was very disappointing and we will not be revisiting.

Extremely overpriced for what you get. Side orders and cheese board all very disappointing. Dessert wine served in a dusty glass. However, the Sunday roast on my last visit was fab.
