Whilst we enjoyed the food and service the atmosphere was lacking in an atmosphere, particularly when significant amount of money was being spent. There was a feeling that the original concept is gradually becoming a "commodity". I have visited the Guildhall venue several times and this was the first time in Borough.

I enjoyed the evening. Nice service but a few disappointments. One order was wrong and came back much later, as the other 3 of us were finishing. We tried eating slowly too! We didn’t get charged for the one meal, but I’d rather had paid and had the food on time. Toilets were flooded. Disgusting. Felt a little rushed, but they were busy. My biscuit desert was rubbish. Burnt biscuit with some sloppy chocolate. Yuck. Overall, service made the evening. I would go back, but just for mains, and a nice glass or two of wine. Then on to somewhere else...

Unfortunately disappointing! Great service is not backed up by great food. Choice cuts of meat where overly salted to make them inedible. We actually had to leave it unfinished. It was just too much salt! Really ruined what should have been a top notch experience. We fed back to the waiter, but his response was that their meat was salted. I pointed out that salting to bring out the taste is good, but over salting ruins it, but it fell on deaf ears - no apologies, apparently no s**t given!

Our waiter, Sebastien, was fantastic, really kind and sociable guy. Did not put pressure on paying for more expensive food and let us take our time.

We came here for my 23rd birthday and Hawksmoor did not disappoint.

Food was Really good, I ordered the Rib Eye (med rare) with peppercorn sauce and it was great, flavourful and perfectly cooked. My girlfriend ordered the set menu, with Yorkshire puds and grilled Hake which was delicious. Sides of creamed spinach and beef dripping fries were so damn good in and of themself. Dessert was amazing, would have to recommend the peanut butter shortbread 100%, easily the best dessert & better than the chocolate + buttermilk icecream.

Overall I was stuffed. I am 5’11, 75kg and was tempted to go for the 700g porterhouse and instead got the 400g ribeye. am really glad I went for something smaller. Next time I will avoid having lunch to make room to have the porterhouse.

Service was great as per.

Ambience great.

Pricing was reasonable and worth the occasion. Felt like I got good value for money.

Overall this will be the restaurant I have special occasions for sure. Thanks to Sebastien our waiter who was great and all the staff who helped make my birthday a special day!

We went there for a second visit (the first being just after the grand opening). Wow. I must admit, everything has bedded in really well. From the greeting at the front desk to the folks serving at the table - the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. There was excellent advice on hand about anything we cared to ask about. We ended up going for oysters to start and a Chateaubriand sharer as a main - everything was top quality and well prepared. The final price with cocktails and wine was a tad eye-watering but I have to say, worth every penny.

Was very much looking forward to my first Sunday Roast, but left feeling rather disappointed.
I noticed on our way out that people who were eating the beef Sunday Roast had 2 slices, where I only had one, which actually was about 60% just non edible fat.
So I pretty much had just potato’s on my plate and a rather large Yorkshire pudding.

We had a fabulous meal at Hawksmoor Borough. The crab starter was phenomenal, so delicious. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the mash was very naughty but worth all the calories! Great cocktails & our waiter couldnt of been more friendly and helpful. We will be returning!

Quite disappointed with this place. I expected a steak that would be the best I've ever tasted but to be fair I've had better at a lower cost.
To the credit of the restaurant the staff were excellent, just wish my steak could have been better.

Fantastic experience at Hawksmoor!
Food was absolutely delicious, steak was perfect and their homemade ketchup is a must try!
Service was attentive and friendly. It was my husbands birthday and I requested a candle on his dessert but unfortunately he was too full. However, they still brought out a plate of delicious rolos which said happy birthday on it, which I thought was very kind.

This was my first visit to Hawksmoor despite dining regularly in London. I was extremely impressed with the food and ambience. I was also impressed with the service until it came to the bill. I asked the waitress to split the bill. I paid my half but then realised she had overcharged me. I pointed this out and asked her to amend it on my friend’s bill. I presumed that this had been done as she said ‘oh okay’ and just walked away. However there no acknowledgement and no apology. We felt as if we were an inconvenience. Despite this, as the food was good, we will probably return.

Excellent steak, cooked perfectly. Sides and cocktails were excellent too, and they have a great selection of wines and spirits. This Hawksmoor (Borough) had a much more comfortable and casual feel than the one on air Street (near picadilly circus) with friendlier staff so I enjoyed this one more. It's a bit pricey but well worth it for the quality.

We went for an early meal after a theatre matinee and got the express menu. Absolutely huge caesar salad to start - the best I have ever had - and then delicious, perfectly cooked hake with mash. The service wasn't quite as seamless as at the other Hawksmoor branches I have been to, but the food and drinks are exemplary, and at 6pm on a Saturday it's a very peaceful environment. And the express menu is excellent value for money.
