Bankside is celebrating one of the most extraordinary events in London’s history - between 1605 and 1814, the surface of the River Thames froze over 24 times so Londoners took to the ice creating “Frost Fairs”. This winter Bankside has reinvented the Frost Fair for the 21st century with innovative augmented reality installations, street art trails, special Frost Fair themed food and drink and inspired workshops - running until 31 January. 



To mark the occasion together with Macellaio RC, we are offering one lucky winner an aperitivo for two with oysters and wine and of course two River Roamers to enjoy a day out on the river!

Macellaio RC is a growing family of six Italian steak restaurants in London, with locations in South Kensington, Exmouth Market, Soho, Fitzrovia, Battersea and Union Street in Bankside. Each restaurant is unique but all telling the same story. You’ll find incredible Italian food, sourced with respect, prepared with love and expertly cooked.

Discover their Oyster bar with our January prize, our lucky winner and their plus one will enjoy a glass of Ferrari Brut and four oysters each.

Answer the question below correctly for your chance to win.

The oysters and wine is a great way to start the night. Afterwards you can indulge in some Italian food.

    About Macellaio RC

    Macellaio’s steak is butchered in front of you and artisan breads, focaccia, pizza and pissa are cooked in-house by their chefs. All their steak comes from the Fassona breed from some very special mountain valleys north of Genoa: every farmer knows the animal he sells, every cut of meat is hung for the right amount of time: 6-8 weeks for steak, up to 10 days for tuna. Even the pissa dough is allowed to rise for 90 hours to give great flavour and incredible texture.
