Hixter Bankside Restaurant & Bar
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.
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.View Private Dining Details
Excellent service and wonderful menu. Great quality cooking of good ingredients and a very good atmosphere
They were great with our kids. Waiter was attentive and diligently helped us manoeuvre around allergies. Food was generally good. The Chateaubriand was not as tender as expected but tasty.
Ordinary ... poor value
good food, great ambience, slightly surly staff though
Very cool looking restaurant but thought the food and wine were very over priced for the quality. We went on a Monday and it was pretty dead which unfortunately is a problem for atmosphere as the restaurant is so large. Helpful service though
Food and service was such a high standard and would thoroughly recommend!
Absolutely amazing experience! Marius the assistant manager is the most charismatic, enjoyable personality who is proud and so happy to be part of this amazing undertaking of restaurants. The food was superb and very much farm to table and organic, the portions were great, amazing for kids and families and the service was delightful. I don’t think I have ever come across such array of desserts, just delicious and very fun for kids. We will be back anytime.
Our second visit to Hixter, even after 4 week since our previous visit, the staff recognised us and greeted us with a warm hello.
The service was prompt and the food up to standard once more.
We ordered a starter, man course and desert. We ordered the Rib-on-the-bone for two, the waiter even explained to us it would take longer and the reason why, this was great service.
The rib arrived and was cooked to perfection, and was carved at the table.
The red wine selected was excellent and complimented the rib.
Following the main course we just polished of with simple ice creams, must admit one of the best I have eaten.
Overall enjoyable, attentive staff and quality to match.
Brilliant service and delicious food. The ambience is very relaxed and casual. All in all, a fabulous experience
The food was great! However the service was quite slow and we were not huge fans of the cocktails - although we only tried 2 of the very extensive menu so I am sure we would have found far more we would have liked if we had tried more
Eating with children has its challenges and the restaurant was accommodating and the food was also better than it looked.
The service was forced and a little annoying, and for an relatively empty restaurant the acoustics weren’t great, there was a lot of background noise.
It’s an average restaurant that served its purpose.
We had a really enjoyable meal as a family. Delicious food with a relaxed atmosphere. However, given the pornographic wallpaper and picture in the toilets, I have to strongly dispute their claims to be a family-friendly restaurant. My kids being 10, 8 and 4 years old made multiple visits to the loos, I only realised why when I went myself.... too late! Would just be advisable to mention the toilet decor to any guests with your kids as they are seated?
Despite the incredibly stylish decor, this place has a casual atmosphere that means you'll fit in just as well in jeans or a suit. It feels classy but not intimidating and the dining room itself is large and lively. It wasn't jam-packed for a Friday night but suitably populated to assure us we had made a good choice. The menus are easy to navigate and boast a good selection of reasonably-priced, high-quality food. There's a lot to choose from drinks-wise too. It was a date night for us and, despite being on a two-person table adjacent to other couples, we weren't overlooked or crammed in together so, for a large dining room, it was suitably intimate. That said, this would equally suit larger groups who want to dine well and relax.
Loved the cosy classy vibe in the bar downstairs and then upstairs the restaurant felt open and spacious without overcrowding. Excellent to have a Veggie Vegan menu that was delicious and filling too!
Great restaurant setting busy, noisy ambience. Good service from knowledge friendly staff. Wine prices a little steep but good selection. Simple menu well performed.
Final bill for three was £205 which included two pre-cooked and cooled asparagus starters, one mushroom-on-toast starter and two aubergine veggie main courses. Just about OK if the cooking had been on point. Sadly it was an expensive disappointment. My advice? Go to Caravan next door.
The food was fine, nothing to write home about. The drinks we had were great! Lovely atmosphere. Great place to hang out. It wasn't dead and I could hear everyone on my table. I'd go back but probably for just the bar.
Great good, amazing service and overall really enjoyable night!
Great after work bar and ambience. Interesting modern menu
We were there for our 1-yr Anniversary. Everything was fantastic!!! We will definitely be back in on our next visit to London.
An amazing place for a special occasion friends were returning to Ireland and had an incredible experience at Hickste
Service was pretty slow even though it was pretty empty.
Food was ok, nothing to write home about.
Fantastisch eten en geweldige sfeer. Ga hier naartoe om te genieten van de nieuwe Britse keuken.
Excellent food, excellent service, great wine list. Will return!
Great menu and service. Came for bottomless Sunday lunch and was very impressed.
Great service, felt really taken care of, great for family’s and friends to grab a brunch and catch up
Amazing restaurant for groups. Food and atmosphere were both perfect. The bar downstairs was really cool too. Would definitely recommend for groups
Extraordinary service making you feel like you’re at a home from home. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere with great food and drinks. Will definitely be back
The acoustics were quite loud. We had a loud party next to us and we could hardly hear one another speak. All the food was good, except the fried chicken. It wasn’t particularly flavorful.
Great place for dinner. Service is brilliant and very attentive. Food is great, tasty and quick.
Had to wait quite a few moment before we got our cocktail. Service after that little mistake was great Just as the Food and drinks.
Great place for lunch with friends, not ideal for vegetarians if you don’t eat fish but all the dishes were delicious, truffled chips worth making a visit for!
Lovely Sunday brunch here. Great food and atmosphere. The restaurant were very accomodating with our advance request to fit a pram next to the table. The beef Sunday roast was delicious!
Overall we really liked the restaurant, it had a great atmosphere and we had a good table, especially as we had a child with us who needed more space. However, we were a little bit let down by the food - whilst the chicken was fantastic, the burgers were really disappointing and sadly looked like something you could make at home. Staff were very accommodating on the whole.
This has to be one of our favourite restaurants in London. The staff are incredible. Professional, friendly, tentative and welcoming . The ambience is fantastic and the food and drinks are exceptional. It’s great value for money and we can’t wait to return for the weekend brunch. Thank you Mariusz, Aaron and team for making our evening - your passion and energy is infectious and your customer service skills are second to none.
This place just never fails to deliver. Great food, authentic personable service and a very sensible price for what is excellent cuisine. It’s no surprise that I keep coming back - it is always a delightful experience delivered by a professional team who clearly love what they do. Can I give it 6 stars? It certainly deserves it
amazing decor and vibe, the bar was perfect for pre diner relax. Value questionable but wouldn’t be an every week visit I guess
Food is was fine and nice enough. Ambience was strange, no background music so the start of the night was spent feeling like we were sat in a big school hall! Service was a bit hit and miss, mostly friendly but not always attentive. At the end of the meal when we presented our code app and it came to paying the server seemed a little miffed by it. All in all it was fine but won’t be rushing back.
Food was just standard, nothing incredible but got the job done.
Never fails to deliver. Great for dinner or just a drink.
