A stone’s throw from Borough Market, Mark Hix’s Hixter was originally a metal box factory and is lauded as one of the most unique venues south of the river.

The main dining room, complete with a baby grand piano, is overlooked by Charming Baker’s ‘Faith’s Leap’ and the walls of the striking open-plan kitchen are built with the Himalayan salt bricks that are used to age our beef.

Chicken, steak, and most recently, fish and seafood form the heart of the menu showcasing the best of British ingredients alongside 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 a cocktail list championing British libations.

The understated luxury of Mark’s Bar and our private dining rooms also offer the perfect setting for drinks parties or feasting. Hixter is also licensed for weddings.

Private Dining

Whether it’s an intimate gathering for 10 in our private dining room; a celebration dinner for 40 guests in our Bull Room or a cocktail and canape party until the early hours in the basement Mark’s bar – Hixter Bankside can cater for it all.

Again another visit and was not disappointed, we were a party of four and no complaints, food and service up to standard and more.

However it was a little noisy for two of us who wore hearing aids!

Slow service, slight over priced. The ‘bottomless’ deal is managed carefully by waiting staff so it’s not such a deal.

Great night out at this modern and friendly restaurant. We started with some cool cocktails downstairs in the bar. The barman was super helpful. We were taken upstairs to a well lit table and the waiting staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was delicious and next time will be staying for desert.

We had a really excellent Sunday lunch. Everything about Hixter was top notch though young children should please be asked not to play on the piano - it added an unpleasant dimension to an already high noise level.

We went there with 2 kids and enjoyed food, service and ambience very much. The kids were busy with drawing and riddleling and very happy. So were the parents. Delicious food.

Booked at the last minute and were not disappointed at the experience, met with a welcoming smile and shown to our table, to our surprise we were served with a welcoming cocktail which was superb.

We ordered a simple meal from the menu; calamari to start, for main an unbelievable chicken curry and desert was a homemade vanilla ice cream, delicious!

All washed down with a bottle of Argentinian Malbec, highly recommended.

Masimo, our waiter was very attentive and was charming and gave advice when needed, must admit we heeded his advice which proved to be invaluable.

I decided to come here for an anniversary dinner and heard the roast was ment to be good. As it turned out it was brilliant. Lots of meat and well worth the money. The staff were great and Mariusz surprised us with an extra little something for the occasion. Very happy and I would definitely recommend going.

Sorry to say but we where recommended this by a couple and it turned to out to less than satisfying. The cut of meat left a lot to imagination, though the staff did apologise and instead of the roast gave a myself stake(marginally better).

As expected with all Hix Restaurants, good food, excellent service and a great space. Our table was very early on a Friday night and there was only three or four other tables occupied which, in such a large space, doesn't provide the best ambience or atmosphere. However, when full (as it was to be later that evening) I can see it being a buzzy atmosphere.

The attention and engagement from the waiting and wine staff was pitched just right and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. The miso-baked cod was a real highlight, cooked perfectly and utterly delicious. The truffle chips were so more-ish! Well worth a visit.

Venue aesthetic is pleasing, and the staff were friendly enough, but the quality of the food just wasn't up to the price, and the whole place was rather too loud. We should have spent another 20 quid a head and gone to Hawksmoor instead.

Food was great but service was lacking for a restaurant of this standard. Timings were inconsistent, left with dirty plates for a long time after starters and waiter was unfamiliar with wine list etc - not the end of the world but disappointing for a restaurant at this level

Seemed like they tried to justify bumped up prices for poorly thought through and executed dishes. Overly awkwardly attentive staff. Didn't seem like the owners, managers or staff had any experience in restaurants and food and I don't mean that in a snobby way - like a cafe or greasy spoon would be more in touch.... a shame.

To find a child friendly restaurant serving seriously decent food but without the normal vibe of a ‘child friendly’ restaurant is a tall order. On Father’s Day we walked into Hixter Bankside and had the uncommon experience of both children and adults being delighted by the experience. It feels like a place you’d eat without small children in tow, but welcomed and accommodates them so it feels natural and easy to enjoy a meal together. The mix of families, couples, small children and young professionals sharing the dining room whilst we were there clearly shows the management team know how to appeal to a wide mix of diners.

The staff had a lovely casual and friendly (but professional) way even when our toddler created her own waterfall. Spills and thrown cutlery were swiftly picked up with a smile an without anything having to be asked for.

We tested out the much fanfared chicken which was outstanding. The children delighted in the serving of claws and the decent children's Portions which were of the same standard as the adults - something that doesn’t always happen. Great to be able to take home the carcasses for soup too - a neat touch.
