Hawksmoor Spitalfields

Hawksmoor Spitalfields

The original Hawksmoor, and for many the best. Known as the group that transformed steaks in British restaurants forever for the better, this is a perfect place to come to for a meat-fest. And expect some cracking cocktails too - head to the bar downstairs for those and extra snacks not on the main menu.

"The meat had proper flavour, a serious char outside and pink to purple inside. The rib-eye was almost as good. Naturally, to go with this there were more of Heston Blumenthal's triple-cooked chips." READ REVIEW

"My rib-eye steak was simply fantastic, a thick, 600g succulent edifice of rare, seared meat, its juices subtly leaking through fibres that have comprehensively broken down after being hung for 28 days." READ REVIEW
