A mediocre roasted rump spoilt an otherwise pleasant meal. Very sinewy and of poor quality. Had expected a much higher standard.

An excellent experience as always, the Borough Market room is nice, big and buzzy without being too loud. Had a fantastic Portherhouse to share. I feel like the prices have gone up a bit since last time we visited though.

First time to H’Moor and was quite perfect. Stylish, old school Borough Market building ambiance with tricky cool twist which resonanted from the excellent staff. Booked it for pre Twickenham dinner and drinks for a few ex pat boys from Boston, MA. They are used to great service, and perfect steak. They were most, most impressed; food was up there with the best, but thanks to Anna and her colleagues for making it a memorable evening. Easy going, relaxed, efficient and above all, good people work hard to make it fantastic. Thanks to all. Definitely would recommend. Cheers

Overall the place was nice with good staff but the food was average. Steak was lovely but does not come with any sides which adds a fair bit to each dish. Starters of oysters and scallops were disappointing oysters very small and scallops way too much garlic for such a delicate food. Pudding ok drinks good wine list and selection of cocktails. Price wise personally way overpriced in my eyes plus they add the service charge which in my eyes forces you to accept I will tip if I think it deserves it which it did but I prefer the choice.

Love this place - love the food and the staff are great as is the wine list. I could not fault it.
The only suggestion I would make would be to have a side dish "caramelised onions mixed with chopped mushrooms"

Unfortunately this Hawkesmoor is the least enjoyable we’ve been to, medium rare steak was over cooked and a meal with wine at £250 its simply not good enough. The staff were good and helpful but we won’t be going back

Another excellent meal at Hawksmoor. My fillet was absolute perfection, and my sister was very happy with the lemon sole. Great background music for an old git like me, although difficult to hear with quite a lot of noise from diners. It is a relaxed casual dining experience but the quality of the food raises it way above the average. Not cheap.

I had heard good things about the Hawksmoor chain and really wanted to try the roast, so booked the Borough restaurant as it was nearest to where I was staying. It was quite hard to find, we arrived and were told they Had no roast left, which I know is not there fault, but they told us after we had ordered and got our drinks so felt like we couldn't leave. The starter was not very nice, main was OK, but all over priced. Got a jug of tap water and on the bill we were charged for water donation, which we were not asked if we wanted to do so. The restaurant just didn't have a nice atmosphere. I will not be back.

Our server was pretty inattentive. When handing us a menu he was talking to another table and he didn’t explain the difference between the larger cuts of meat to share. We didn’t even notice the blackboard with the information on until we overheard him talk about it to another. As it was our first time there we didn’t know how it worked and I believe the server should tell us rather than us asking. Also took a long time to ask if we wanted another drink. Food was also quite salty (might just be my personal preference) but there was a lot of salt on everything, even the salad. Was expecting more from the experience considering the reputation the restaurant has.

I love Hawksmoor. Previously had outstanding food and service at Borough but found this meal disappointing. The bone marrow oysters were small and dry. And my meal (rib eye and Bearnaise sauce) was greasy which I've never had from hawksmoor before. I didn't want to say anything at the time as I was taking my brother out for his birthday and didn't want to ruin the evening.

We asked for two water the waiter opened a bottle of flat water. Oops he said
We asked for baked potato not fries. The waiter brought the baked potato as an extra side dish. Extra charge oops he said.
We asked for mushrooms in one burger. The waiter brought mushrooms as an extra side dish. Oops said the waiter.
I asked for blue cheese in my burger. The smallest amount of cheese was found under a slice of tomato. In summary we were not served but sold to. And we were sold a very average meal. Not good in anyway. At a price which felt high for the quality. There are better burgers elsewhere with more genuine service. Not again for us.
