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 now 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 winter – including f
avourites such as JAZZ@HIX , Afternoon TEA@HIX and our regular THEME  NIGHTS – including Mother’s Day on 11th March and  an evening with Nigel Bloxham of the Crabhouse Cafe on the 15th March. 

Just take a look at our events section on this website for full details.

We will be reintroducing our full A La Carte  menu on Friday 23rd February. For details of our new 2018 menu please click here

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:
