Video: HIX at Home

Published: 17 July 2015

In preparation for the launch of our ‘How to with Hix’ series, we made a trip to the coast to see where the man himself spent his childhood.

HIX at Home

Mark Hix is one of London’s most eminent restaurateurs and chefs, with a portfolio of eight restaurants (and counting) to his name. Although the majority of Hix’s restaurants sit in London, there’s one out-of-town eatery that holds a special place in his heart: Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis. 

Growing up in West Bay just eight miles from Lyme Regis, it was only by chance that Hix opened a restaurant in his hometown. After a local landslide and the subsequent renovation of a covetable cliff side building, Hix jumped at the chance to have an eatery back home. Returning to Dorset wasn’t a definite life goal, but it happened and led to him opening a stylish inn called Hix’s Townhouse just a short walk up the road. 

In preparation for the launch of our ‘How to with Hix’ series, we made a trip to the coast to see where the man himself spent his childhood, to join in with his favourite pastimes and, of course, to eat.
