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.

Great Sunday Roast - London

Well worth it at Spitalfields Hawksmoor - excellent service, perfectly done medium rare roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings.

I agree with many other reviews that the price point didnt quite match the offering at Hawksmoor. Came with a friend & had really nice service throughout, with engaging & hospitable staff. The food was good quality throughout but I did feel that for the prices a little more could be delivered. Potted smoked salmon & Brixham crab on toast... More

Maybe boring to say this - but the steaks were perfect and the sides were fabulous - especially the macaroni cheese. Wine and cocktails were sublime and the service attentive and helpful. So, nothing to complain about but worth sharing the joy!

Having eaten at the Guidhall branch I knew the food would be good. The stark difference which never occurred to be before I arrived was the décor. As this restaurant is situated on the trendy commercial road, the restaurant is loud and buzzing with people on a Saturday afternoon. The bar is in the restaurant area and I would say... More

Visited the restaurant on a cold Sunday afternoon with a friend with the aim of having a hearty roast dinner. The food does not disappoint - the quality is very high, and the portion is large enough to consider it good value for money. The roast was finished with Hawksmoor's renowned peanut butter shortbread with salted caramel ice cream, which... More

Stopped here for a quick drink and sat in the basement! It was quiet due to the time of day but the service was very friendly and you were made to feel at home. I liked that you were served free water as soon as you sat down and your glass was always topped up - nice little touch! I... More

8 x quite nice cocktails, some smashed cucumber and 3 wet under seasoned burgers with tasteless Mayo and chips that tasted like expensive paper, very weird coleslaw with a bad choice of herbs for £210. Can't help but feel a little hard done by.

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.
