Enjoying iconic status across the city, Hawksmoor Spitalfields has built a reputation for offering the finest steaks in London. Oozing old-school glamour, the suave dining room features shabby-chic brickwork and old school wooden furnishings, offset by a littering of trendy kitsch trinkets. Alongside a celebrated selection of dictionary-thick meat cuts, Hawksmoor favourites include plum pudding belly ribs, or smooth potted smoked mackerel.

Good Steak, good sides, the bone marrow gravy was fantastic - I almost ordered another portion. Service was fantastic (Will) and a lovely touch at the end with a couple of glasses of champagne to celebrate our upcoming wedding. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

My son ate half his body weight in chateaubriand steak - which looked amazing - although he felt it could have been a tiny bit hotter as it was a hefty chunk of meat to get through before it became a bit cool. My husband and I had some delicious sole. Add in some greens, great chips and a lovely... More

Meat is priced per 100g and per cut, a 300g Rib Eye will cost around £27, Vegetables and sauces bernaise, peppercorn etc are extra. The meat is good quality and tender, the service is good and attentive. The wine list goes from £20 to £1700. The cocktail list was I thought overpriced so we avoided it. It is good but... More

Loved the meat and atmosphere but the service was a little slow and unresponsive. For the price was it value? On the cusp of being expensive...worth a visit

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
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.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
