All the staffs are super friendly, especially when we came with two kids and two prams. Going anywhere will be a nightmare with kids but not at Hawksmoor, all the staffs are really welcoming and surprisingly a very baby friendly place with baby changing facility. Staffs were helping us carry the prams up and down the stairs which made it easy for us to bring the prams. There isn’t a child menu but since my kids doesn’t eat much anyway we can easily order some sides for them.

The January deal menu has fairly limited choices. Not worth the value and choices. We end up paying for full price menu. The steak is good.

However, this totally defeat the ‘enjoy great food - less price’ purpose. Was so excited initially but left fairly disappointed. Lesson learnt - imperative to read the small print or check out the menu prior on Jan deal.

It was a lovely meal, we did get the January deal so it was good for pricing. The rump steak was delicious!!! The girls at the door and who served us were lovely, well attentive, filling up our glasses of water constantly without having to ask, checking we were okay! Would defo recommend!

I've heard a lot about Hawsmoor, so wanted to go. We had the three course Winter menu. The food was really good, but not exceptional. The service was exceptional though - friendly and efficient. I think maybe I was expecting fine dining, but this is really an upmarket steak house.

Great place if you like steaks. On the expensive side but I don't think you'll be disappointed. My wine was not as cold as I would've liked, but thats down to preference. Service was fantastic.

This was our first visit but read many reviews. The restaurant in Manchester is in the old courts, so the building was lovely. We found out a lot of the interior is reclaimed in some way... so many of fixtures have had a past life elsewhere... this just added to the beauty of the restaurant.
The attentiveness of the staff from the start was warm and welcoming. Waiter service in the bar area, with refills of water without being ‘in your face’.
The non-alcoholic cocktails were lovely and had a fresh new twist to them. They even have non-alcoholic gin!
Upon seating in the main restaurant we were struck by how large and busy it was, very deceptive from the outside. The menu wasn’t overwhelming and the prices reasonable for the quality.
Upon ordering my wife and I choose the roasts for the main, my wife had the belly pork for starters, and I had the Mackerel Salad.
Oh my word the salad was light and full of flavour. The belly pork cooked to perfection, moist yet a crispy, not chewy at all.
Then came the roasts; buttery carrots, fresh vibrant green cabbage, crunchy yet fluffy roast potatoes, roast beef cooked to perfection, tender well seasoned, definitely the best roast dinner in Manchester by far. The gravy was the tastiest and they don’t ration it either. The Yorkshire was the biggest I’ve seen.
After all this we shared dessert... Peanut Butter shortbread with Salted Caramel ice cream.
The shortbread was warmed, buttery melt in the mouth goodness. The peanut butter taste didn’t overwhelm the shortbread, and the ice cream was a magical ride on my taste buds.
Simple yet so tasty.
Would we go again, absolutely... would we go every weekend if we could... most certainly.

Thank you Hawksmoor... you have spoilt us.

Loved it here for Saturday lunch. The bone marrow with onions is amazing, as is the bone marrow gravy! They should do a bone marrow mayo too 🤤

As always the service is fantastic. The Sunday roast was absolutely delicious, could have done with some more roast potatoes but that’s me being greedy.
The Sour Cherry Americano cocktail was incredibly refreshing.

Brought my boyfriend here as a surprise birthday dinner and it exceeded expectations. The building is beautiful, from the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and made us feel comfortable. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar before being shown to our table. Our server Cesar was attentive without being intrusive and was very helpful when we sought recommendations. The food was incredible, I had the fillet steak and it was the best I have tasted. The steak, along with the sides, were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Great ambience and the bill was very reasonable. Cannot wait to visit again for another mouthwatering meal. Highly recommend.

Hawksmoor is a special treat for us. The food is utterly delicious always. And the decor and lighting is both stylish and welcoming. We go to Hawksmoor for steak. And for special occasions. Don’t miss the bone marrow gravy. Or the chips. The service is warm and friendly. Prices reflect the quality of the experience. Yum!

Excellent food - recommend the prime rib. Markup big on drinks but service also brilliant. Great selection of wines and nice cocktails too. No draft lager is a shame but you don’t go here for lager I suppose. Can’t fault the food one bit!

Really enjoyed the meal at Hawksmoor. The food was amazing and the offer was good value for money albeit the express set menu is cheaper. It was one of the best steak dinners I’ve had in a long time.

We have been meaning to go to Hawksmoor for a long time and we finally got round to it.
It certainly didn’t disappoint! Amazing food, the most beautiful bottle of wine and the service was top notch.
We have found our new special occasion restaurant and will most certainly be back for my birthday in April!

Unfortunately not the best to be honest with you.
Arrived at 7:45pm for an 8:30pm meal and was shown to our table at 9:15pm having to ask twice to be seated! Quite busy (as usual) however dinner service very slow and was beginning to rethink the whole booking by this time.
Food no more than average for the Hawksmoor, (having dined many times there in the past). Our Rib Eye Steaks were flattened with no marbling effect of the meat and my Cesar Salad had no anchovies at all. (waiter sold me the starter based on this having anchovies!)

Overall appreciate its a busy time of year, though 5 out of 10 I'm afraid, as your prices don't reflect the food or service and we wont be rushing back any time soon

Finally the Gents toilets were very dirty
