A short walk from Borough Market you will find Hixter Bankside. Hixter was originally a metal box factory in Bankside and is lauded as one of the most unique and versatile venues south of the river.
The main dining room, complete with a baby grand piano, is overlooked by contemporary artwork and the walls of the striking open-plan kitchen are built with the Himalayan salt bricks that are used to age our beef. Chicken and steak from the heart of the menu, alongside foraged British ingredients, and fish & seafood dishes influenced by Mark’s travels.
Downstairs, Mark’s Bar is a hidden gem featuring an impressive sunken bar with cinema- style bar seating and Mark’s signature billiards table. Here, guests can also book ahead for Cocktail Masterclasses – ideal for groups of friends , team-building or entertaining clients. Throughout the year, Mark hosts a series of exclusive carving masterclasses, celebrating this quintessentially British skill.
Sharing his passion for British produce whilst you feast on seasonal dishes throughout the evening, Mark shares knife skills and top tips on creating the perfect yet uncomplicated roast meal and dinner party, teaching guests the forgotten art of carving in the intimate setting of Hixter’s private dining space – The Bull Room.
The two-hour masterclass includes a Black Cow vodka or Salcombe gin cocktail masterclass arrival and feast dinner including three sharing starters, three carved meats served with seasonal accompaniments and dessert with Tonnix wine throughout. Hixter offers a variety of flexible private dining spaces for corporate and social events and licensed for wedding ceremonies.
The Cock ‘n’ Bull private dining room is a bright space bathed in natural daylight enveloped by Luke Embden pop-art mural. The opulent Bull Room with large windows and velvet curtains lends itself to breakfast meetings, private dining and drinks receptions.
