The chateaubreand was a little but disappointing. It wasn’t as tender as I have had before ands felt it was a touch chewy which is surprising for that type of cut

Absolutely outstanding food and service from the Hawksmoor. Enjoyed the express menu which is incredible value for the standard of food we received and the portion sizes fabulous. The staff were attentive, polite and courteous and its clear they have gone above and beyond with their COVID measures to make it not only safe but also still an enjoyable experience to dine with them. My only criticism is I found the drinks a little on the pricey side, my personal opinion, and my dining companion a little disappointed there wasn't a draft beer option, however its great they offer a corkage service on Mondays if you wanted to save on the drinks cost. My first experience at Hawksmoor and definitely is not going to be my last.

These are difficult times but the team at Hawksmoor go above and beyond what is required to make dining with them a great experience.
They have embraced all of the rules and regulations but they deliver the requirements and messages with style and grace.
They make eating in Hawksmoor as normal as possible and deliver outstanding food and service

The service was immaculate with the team friendly, knowledgable and attentive. The rump steak was amazing, perfectly cooked and incredibly tasty. Queen of Pudding to finish was outstanding. Already booked for a return visit in December.

We were made welcome from the moment we arrived, to the moment we left. The waiters & waitresses were very knowledgeable about how the food is cooked and the food was delicious. My husband even got a Birthday gift, a lovely box of salted caramel chocolates!!

Excellent, friendly service and outstanding food.
Generally good Covid rules compliance, but no obvious app support/contact tracing.
Menu may be a little limited for those who are picky!

Excellent Sunday Roast, starters and dessert, just wish I’d chosen the Crunchie Bar my husband had (if it wasn’t his birthday I would have made him swop).
Excellent Covid precautions in place.

Fabulous to return to Hawksmoor post-lockdown! The service was absolutely spot-on and we felt very looked after throughout. We ate from the express menu, which provided exceptional value. I can honestly say the fillet tail was the nicest steak I have had for a very long time, and the triple cooked chips - wow! I would also highly recommend the beetroot salad starter.

As usual, the cocktails were fab and inventive.

Overall we had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return.

Delicious! Amazing meat, amazing wine, amazing service.
The only thing we would have changed was around the 10pm curfew. We booked for 8.30 but the menu is that amazing it took us so long to decide, meaning we were a little on edge throughout the meal. We were very aware of early closing and eating as quick as possible. We managed to fit two courses in. They even offered us a desert to take away.
Such a shame about the curfew as places like this have really nailed it with the covid safety precautions.
We will 100% be back. Just maybe for an earlier sitting next time.

What an amazing birthday treat, superb service, excellent food quality and really good hygiene. We visited for my partners birthday, our first visit and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The food, steaks we both had, were delicious and great advice and suggestions from the waiter.

Steak was undercooked which was a first for me in the Hawksmoor, we asked for our steak to be cooked medium, it was rare but we did not mind this. I’ve been to Hawksmoor quite a few times, occasions etc, like this one was, being my fiancé’s 30th and have always had something special happen but unfortunately, it didn’t happen this time.

Sunday dinner was amazing the meat was cooked to perfection!
The staff where all so lovely and did wha they could to ensure you enjoyed your visit. The only thing I would mention as a negative was it was slightly cold when dining which meant my sister wore her coat when eating but it didn’t stop us having a great time.

Had a wonderful time here with my partner on Saturday night. It felt covid safe, the service was excellent and the server talked us through any queries we had on the menu. The food was perfect. It is an expensive meal, but completely reasonable for the food, service and setting. I would definitely return.
