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.

Wouldn't say that they chateaubriand was outstanding, nothing to write home about and with sinew (hard to cut).
Mac & Cheese overcooked - splodgy.
Sauces average.
Not bad but nothing brilliant.

The government's tier 2 guidelines were clearly not being followed, multiple groups clearly not from the same household. No checks on proof of residence etc.

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

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.....
