Hawksmoor Seven Dials

11 Langley St, London WC2H 9JG
Latest critic review: June 26, 2011
Critics' score: 7.5 out of 10

Located in the old Watney-Combe brewery, complete with original vaulted brick ceiling, the new Hawskmoor restaurant looks as though it's been down this narrow Covent Garden street forever. There's also a private dining room for up to 14 people and a bar where you can pop in for 'a casual burger and beer'.

"The meat had the texture of fat-slag thigh. The mechanics of eating felt like something you should do in a gym." READ REVIEW

"Hawksmoor's steaks are often called the best in London, and Charlie's sirloin, a hefty, bone-in slab, lived up to that billing. The Josper charcoal grill gives a deep, smoky char, but inside the flesh is rosily pink and full of flavour." READ REVIEW

"The problem with steaks, though, is that after the first blast, there’s just more of the same, until you’re sated. It’s animal appetite it serves, not gastronomy. But for that, Hawksmoor sure hits the spot." READ REVIEW

"The dry-aged Longhorn steaks, via super-butcher Ginger Pig’s Yorkshire farm, are the bomb. Huge, thick, breathing smoky fumes from their punishment on the charcoal grill, they manage the remarkable feat of being perfectly black outside and evenly pink within." READ REVIEW

"The steak was a glorious hunk of drippingly pink, charcoaly flesh – with none of that obnoxious chewiness that comes from poorly integrated fat and bad cuts. I’m not sure I’ve tasted anything better – even in the US." READ REVIEW

"The message I want to convey is to not have steak at Hawksmoor. Its good, but it’s not great, for the same money... Instead, I urge you to go for everything else on the menu." READ REVIEW
