The Hix Academy’s design and interior are inspired by Mark’s award-winning London restaurants.


The Restaurant

The academy restaurant is based at Weymouth College’s Cranford Avenue site and replicates the style and flavour of Mark’s top London restaurants. Up to 65 guests can dine in elegant and fashionable surroundings, or enjoy a drink at the stunning statement cocktail bar ‘Mark’s.’

The staff

Under the eye of their mentors, the academy staff are made up of our full-time students, polishing their skills before heading off to launch their own successful careers, so customers get to enjoy top quality food at a fraction of the price.

 Our returning and new students are getting settled in and we are pleased to say we have opened our doors again and look forward to welcoming you to the HIX Academy

We have a full programme of events for the autumn – including f
avourites such as JAZZ@HIX and Afternoon TEA@HIX.   Just take a look at our events section on this website for full details.

We are pleased again this year to be part of FEAST WEYMOUTH and will be serving our FEAST Menu every Friday and Saturday evening from Friday 3rd November until Saturday 25th November. Booking is essential.

Don’t forget to book early for Festive Feastings@HIX which will start on 29th November – we are already nearly fully-booked on several dates so do contact

The food
HIX restaurants focus on seasonal British food with fresh produce from British suppliers, and the academy is, of course, just as passionately providing its guests with the same.

The menu has been created by Mark himself, so you can be sure you are in for a treat. Please follow the links to see more:
