Had a booking for 17:30 with no warning that the roast is subject to availability and could run out. We were seated and on attempting to order a roast, were told bluntly it was now off the menu . A friend and I had travelled from kent specifically for Sunday dinner and would have liked to have been told before we sat down that the roast wasn’t available. Had it not been for our tenacity and asking for the manager we would have had to order something else. The manager informed us that they just didn’t have roast potatoes (we actually got one each in the end). My point is: I feel the waiting staff member could have bothered to assess the situation. Some other people may have unjustly just accepted this. When we pushed the matter they managed to “find” 2 roasts. Which I do appreciate, and in the end the manager did make a big effort to ensure we were happy.
So my points are. 17:30 is very early to run out of roast on a Sunday, and the waiting staff could have been a lot less dismissive I’ve mainly voted down the food as they had run out but the carrots were also overcooked and the Yorkshire’s burnt. Although This may be because they had prepared to stop serving any more roast

Best Sunday roast me and my partner have ever tasted. An overall excellent experience made even better by the excellent service from the staff members at Hawksmoor.

Wow! We’d heard such great things about Hawksmoor and were a little worried it might not live up to our expectations! Needless to say there was no need to worry. Everything about our visit was 5* from the service to the food and the knowledgeable staff.
You won’t find a better Sunday lunch in the UK. We’ll be back.....

Pretty disappointing experience, especially as I have dined here before without any complaints but on this occasion the brand did not live up to expectations. We had a party of 4 and no complaints about the starters but we all found the main courses over seasoned. My own steak was completely inedible due to the amount of salt so I asked for a new one. 20 minutes later and my guests had all finished their meals so I told the waiting staff not to bother bringing my steak back as I had finished the side dishes. Shortly after a manager came over to ask what he could do to make things right and we ended up with a free round of cocktails and I was not charged for my main.
The issue I have is that when you pay around £400 for a party of 4 people you do not expect such a really amateur mistake with the seasoning of the food and I really didn't expect the replacement to take over 20 minutes to arrive.
So I don't think I will return there after paying that amount and then leaving hungry. The restaurant was full and I guess they had literally bitten off more than they could chew in terms of managing the flow in the kitchen. Not good guys....

I booked this after a great experience a month or so ago, but I must say, and this is no exaggeration, I almost choked to death on a ver dry roast potato. On a first date too! Very embarrassing. Yorkshire was tasteless, and the meat was too tough. Never worth £110 for two roast dinner and a few glasses of wine.

Not sure if Hawksmoor Borough is my favourite as they are all so very good. Took my son for Sunday lunch - great food, great service, great ambience. It was busy and I was so pleased to see that as Hawksmoor deserves it.
