A meal at any of the Hawksmoor restaurants is always a pleasure. This is the first time I have been the Borough restaurant, which was a culinary oasis of peace and tranquility in the craziness of a Saturday in Borough. Ahh - calm!

Relaxed, unhurried but timely and appropriate attention from the maitre d'/manager, sommelier, servers et al. We felt comfortable in our choices but really appreciated the guidance in terms of weight, best cuts that day etc.

Pre-dinner drinks fantastic. 'If you want a good martini, go to a Hawksmoor.'

As usual, the steak was beautifully cooked. Still savouring the taste now...sides were excellent. Desserts indulgent.

Fantastic lunch which I aim to repeat on a regular basis.

The service was excellent, the steak was cooked perfectly (blue) which is rare. The waitress couldn’t do enough for us and was very knowledgeable

Really good food! The waiters were really friendly but like every Hawksmoor we’ve been to, it’s a little bit too attentive for our taste.

We went to Hawksmoor Borough for a special treat, and it was well worth the visit. From the moment we arrived we were so well looked after - the service for the entire evening was impeccable, the best I think I've ever received. The food was so good too - and we even took our leftovers home. Delicious cocktails. Would 100% recommend.

Staff were very friendly and helpful - picking up on our occasion as a birthday dinner and surprised with a little ‘Happy Birthday’ chocolate treat.
We had a chateau briand and rib of beef to share between 5 and it was a perfect mix of different steaks - excellent quality and cooked to perfection.
We loved the building itself and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent steak dinner.

Came for the steak, it lived up to the hype. It is pricey but who doesn’t like to push the boat out every once in a while?

Lovely place for a fantastic steak. Always have to go for the potted beef and Yorkshire’s to start.
Lovely chance to celebrate my birthday with a couple of mates. Touch loud so difficult to hear but that’s just me getting old!

No one at reception desk for lunch at 1. 5 mins I chase someone on restaurant to seat us, place is half empty.
Waiter spills drink on me.
Other waiter later walks by and kicks chair, stumbles then proceeds to pull up a chair and tell us about her warm up dancing before service. Yes my client is well impressed.
Steal ordered med/rare comes med/well. The lunch is too far gone to save so I don’t send back.
Order coffees and rolos; taste lovely but presented like a first rounder off bake off.
All in all a shocker. Save your money. Go elsewhere.

One of the greatest bone-in-rib, we ever had. Great advice from the waiter, who suggest medium rare, then we asked for rare.
Only one small thing: Please serve the wine by glass at the table.

Had a Sunday roast ... was the best roast I’ve had, even beating a home cooked roast which is the ultimate test. Excellent, attentive service. Busy, bustling restaurant. 10/10

Absolutely fantastic as ever. We visit as a large group of friends once a year, were accommodated with the table, the food was delicious as always, and the service supreme. Frieda was particularly accommodating, helpful, advising each of our party on the cuts available, even when a glass was accidentally knocked, there were no issues at all and it was a brilliant, joyful day. thanks- we will be back- again!

The provenance of the grass-fed and carefully raised beef results in a very flavourful steak. Fast and friendly service, a comfortable and congenial atmosphere amidst the old wood and soft lighting, sides and desserts also very tasty. This is traditional rather than adventurous cuisine with the steaks in a starring role. We got exactly what we came for.
