Really wonderful last meal before lockdown 2.0! Staff were absolutely fantastic, and the food and drinks were brilliant too. A little rushed at the end, but I can't blame them for wanting to get an extra table in before having to close for a month!

An utter delight from start to finish. The staff were approachable and attentive, but balanced that with giving us privacy too.

The chateaubriand was cooked beautifully; tender, juicy and delicious.

The sides, wine and cocktails were all delightful too. Once this lockdown is over we'll be back!

The restaurant was very busy but the staff where very attentive. Myself and partner ordered two steaks. Mine was slightly over cooked but tasty. We order two chips which where okay but nothing special and two vegetable sides which where both swimming in butter, a little to rich for our taste. Over all meal was okay but at £120 odd including 1 small beer each I would expect better than okay. I wouldn't rush back.

Our lunch date was absolutely wonderful! The food was memorable to say the least - we had the bone marrow and potted beef and bacon to start, followed by the 750g T-bone steak with 3 sides. Needless to say it was a copious meal! But it was wonderful. And the staff made it that much more lovely, with excellent recommendations and a friendly approach. It was our first time at Hawksmoor Borough - hopefully not the last!

We went in our bubble to eat pre Lockdown 2 and it was as good as ever. We shared a delicious Porterhouse and drank a few cocktails. Thank you to the Hawksmoor team for making it a great evening.

Lovely food and excellent service. Sadly when we arrived we were informed that many options were not available. We Had booked a table for 6.30pm. We were informed at 8.10pm that we had to leave our table at 8.45pm for another cover which was a shame as the restaurant was closing at 10pm anyway and meant we had to rush our coffee and deserts. The waiter waived the price of deserts which was a nice gesture but it was a shame.

Such a wonderful lovely restaurant - all types of clientele - all lovely. Wonderful staff, incredibly friendly and informative. I couldn’t say a negative thing about this place.
As a gluten and milk free diner, they were incredibly accommodating.

Excellent Sunday roast from specials board.
It’d be good if some starter/desserts could also be on a special/Sunday menu rather having to use main menu

Went for Sunday lunch and it really is the best in London. When we booked this the latest lockdown had not been announced which made this lunch a bit more poignant but also we didn’t hold back. Highly recommend Hawksmoor and please support them when they reopen, hopefully in December. We will definitely be back.

I really enjoy the food at Hawksmoor Borough and this occasion was no different. The scallops were excellent, as was the monkfish & steak. The cocktails too are really delicious.

My review level is slightly lower than on previous occasions around customer service. I suspect the changes resulting from Covid (and a need to push customers through in their allotted time) has changed the staff approach slightly, along with additional pressures they undoubtedly feel. I think also on our last trip to Borough we had the most wonderful waiter - he greeted us acknowledging our reason for being there (anniversary) whereas this time we were celebrating our engagement and aside from our welcome by FOH our waiter didn't allude to it and in general seemed very rushed, and a bit short. So it just felt a little different.

I booked for our 10yr wedding anniversary on Saturday, what can I say the staff were on point and the food didn’t disappoint either. I had a 650g T bone which was mouth watering the whole way though 🔥🔥. Can’t wait to return

Hawksmoor never disappoints. We’ve been to every one in London. Each is unique in its own way. While the food and service are excellent at all locations, Hawksmoor Borough is one of our favourites given its great ambiance. Perfect spot for a special occasion.

I've already written a review on Google singing their praises, all I can say is if you look at their menu and think you'll like anything on there then you should go. Food was all seasoned very well and service was excellent. Treat yourself. It can't be justeats everyday.
