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.

Great food as ever - restaurant very busy (possibly due to the 40% discount offer) and as a consequence very loud

We had a truly wonderful experience at The Ox, Clifton. Our waiter, Stephan, was incredibly friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. Would return for sure.

Phenomenal. My wife and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner, thanks in part to your restaurant. The staff were attentive and the drinks were superb. The food? One of the best steaks I've ever had, and I've had quite a few steaks, on several continents. The people at Michelin would do well to stop in and give The Ox the star it so rightfully deserves. Kudos to all!

really lovely overall. strangely my medium fillet steak was less cooked and much pinker than my husbands medium rare sirloin... also i had a dessert (pannacotta?) with shortbread which wasn't set at all. this was sorted though and another set one brought out - staff very nice and helpful. a lovely birthday meal.

unfortunately both mine and my wifes steaks were over cooked. They were still very good just not how we like them.

Excellent steak. Early bird menu was great value. Please add a steak with a leafy green salad as a healthy low carb option.

First time at the Ox and I’ve heard great things. The restaurant itself is lovely, great vibes, really easy to enjoy a conversation. The food was delicious, sides were all seasoned perfectly! On arrival the staff were quick and friendly throughout. Two negatives that really disappointed because this restaurant has a great reputation; Firstly the red wine was described as “fresh and fruity” it was more Woody, and more so as the bottle became lighter. Secondly my date and I both ordered rare rib-eye steaks, they came between medium and medium-rare. We didn’t send them back as it smelt wonderful and we are not wasteful people. It won’t put me off trying the Ox again but we expected more because of other people’s opinions.

Steaks were dry and quite cold when they made it to our table. Rather overpriced, too. Overall, not very impressed.

The food here is excellent. I honestly don't understand why it's not constantly packed even for lunch. I've loved every meal, every appetizer, and every cocktail I've ever had here. I've been to some of the best steakhouses in the USA, in Asia, and in Europe and I can honestly say that the flavor you achieve on the crust of your steaks is amazing! My one comment for improvement would be regarding the cooking and resting times for the steaks. The last 3 times I've eaten here my steak has always been over. One time we order one steak blue and one medium and the blue was more like medium rare and the medium was more like medium-well. This past time we went and ordered medium rare and rare and both steaks were over again as well. Not sure if it's just being rested for too long or if you aren't watching the cook time as closely as you should- but I know for people who are very particular that would ruin the meal for them.

The steak was fantastic, but why does a 10% Automatic Gratuity have to be added to the bill? If the service is good, people will leave a tip.

Excellent night all round. Service was spot on, food was great all round and the best ‘greens’ we’ve ever had (not to detract from beautiful steak!).

We had a great meal at the Ox, Clifton. We ordered the T-bone but ended up with the rib of beef, which it & it's accompaniments were incredible & beautifully cooked. My starter was delicious - a bone marrow dish, my girlfriend had the scallops which were boring & flavourless, they were on a bed of equally unappetising broad beans and peas which seemed liked grandma-style levels of overcooked. My cocktail was very very good as well as the prosecco and a bottle of really good red wine. Equally the dessert wine to finish was perfect. I would definitely return, but maybe not too soon as we are both supposed to be vegetarian & this was a rare meat treat...
