We had wanted to come here for a very long time as the reviews are very good so we gave it a try yesterday. We got two fillets with fries and cauliflower cheese and some sauces. We also shared a dessert (the George V chocolate...More

The restaurant has a great frenzy of atmosphere. The meat is fantastic. I was advised to try out the hispi cabbage (they don't seem to serve this in other branches) and it was simple and delicious. Great desserts. Waiter could have been more knowledgeable about...More

I think this was the wrong choice of restaurant for us. It's more casual than I anticipated (waiting team in jeans and checked shirts, with tattoos on show) and the tables are very close together. The stripped down interior means it is noisy and the...More

This was my first meal in London and what a meal it was. We arrived 10 minutes before our 2 pm reservation, but they sat us immediately. The beef was flavorful, tender, and perfectly pink. I loved everything on the plate: gravy, baby spinach, carrots,...More

The atmosphere is great with plenty of seats and still cozy and intimate. The service is polite and super friendly. I had the filet steak cooked medium rare, which turned out to be one of the best I've eaten - ever! Super tasty, and so...More

I have been to Gauchos in Canary Wharf so I thought they would be a good comparison. In terms of atmosphere Hawks is much more buzzing inside, not full of stuffy people who fancy themselves like Gauchos was. The theme is quite old fashioned and...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening. We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations. It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions. For information on private hire and events, please contact our events department.
