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.

Best Steak Restaurant in South of England

I was taken here by my partner for my Birthday. The place is very cramped, but because of that, it's very cozy. The food was out of this world. I had the Fillet Steak, and it was the best I have EVER eaten. If I had the money, I would have eaten 100 of them. It is a very expensive... read more

Dined at Hawksmoor Spitalfields last night and paid a lof money for a very average dinner. Ovecooked scallops for starter, a rib eye full of fat for main (too tough to eat despite being medium/rare) and a wine list where the first malbec comes in at £48 a bottle (ridiculous). The waiter offered a free drink/dessert to compensate for the... More

The build up to the quality of the food justifying the high prices me at we were sorely disappointed at the amount of fat and waste that was inedible. We commented on this to our waiter, but nothing was done. Far too much money for a poor quality steak.

The roast is amazing here! Everything perfect and great size portions. Gravy comes on the side in a jug. Almost the best roast I have had!

We've been taken to Hawksmoor Spitafields by our friends as the best steaks restaraunt in London. It is located in a very trendy area, offers amazingly tasty food, wide range of wines and cool atmosphere. A bit expensive though )

Hawksmoor Heaven - Blue Steak, Red Wine, Home Made Rolos, Cheese and Manzanilla Cocktails. What more could a girl ask for..... Worth every penny. For the tight wallet days - the Sunday Roast is excellent value at £19.00. Also on Mondays, you can bring your own wine and corkage is only £5. If you are a Carnivore, what are you... More

I took my husband for his birthday meal as a surprise. Neither of us have been before. One of the only main steak restaurants that I found to be open on a Saturday evening in the City. We were early so had a drink in the bar downstairs. They put the drinks on our dinner table tab and came to... More

There is a choice of other foods apart from steak, but our party kept with what the restaurant was recommended for. The food quality was only OK and some of the fillet was a little fatty. The issues is everything is very expensive for a steak house and everything additional to the steak is an extra. Service was very good... More

It is a bit of a claim, but I have been fortunate to have eaten some of the best cuts of meat in some of the best places and this is certainly near the top of the list. It is not cheap but if you are looking for a fillet/t-bone/sirloin maybe some side veg. and a glass of wine, you... More

I am not sure it gets much better than this place. Service from people who seem to love their job and take pride in what they do. Still the best Fillet Steak I have ever had. The desserts are fantastic, so it is best to fast before you come. Fantastic guidance on the wine list. We will be back for... More

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.
