The festival brings together top chefs, exhibitors, locals and those who are visiting Lyme Regis. The main stage will showcase a diverse mix of interactive cookery demonstrations, talks and tastings across the weekend.

In addition to this, all money raised is donated to the RNLI and the Fishermen’s Mission.

Hixter Bankside

April 24th, 2017

A stone’s throw from Borough Market, Hixter was originally a metal box factory and is lauded as one of the most unique and versatile venues south of the river. Hixter pays homage to its origins with exposed brick and metalwork featured throughout.

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. Offering a variety of flexible private dining spaces for corporate and social events, Hixter is also licensed for wedding ceremonies.

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.

The CNB dining room is a bright space bathed in natural daylight enveloped by Luke Embden’s pop-art mural. The opulent Bull Room with large windows and velvet curtains lends itself to breakfast meetings, private dining and drinks receptions.

Downstairs, Mark’s Bar is a hidden gem featuring an impressive sunken bar with cinema-style bar seating and Mark’s signature billiards table. Like its sister bar in Soho, the understated luxury of Mark’s Bar Bankside offers the perfect setting for drinks parties or feasting.
