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.

Went here for my boyfriends 30th birthday and its certainly a meal we will never forget. We shared the Porterhouse steak, and it just melted in our mouths, just stunning! The staff were extremely attentive, all smiles and very knowledgable. I also contacted them just hours before our arrival to ask if they could do a little something special for... More

A very pleasant evening in atmospheric surroundings with superb food,wine and service. Will looked after us from start to finish,patiently answering all our questions,suggesting dishes and sides without being over bearing or too "pushy". Very professional and good fun too. The steaks were all cooked to perfection and everything and i mean everything was totally stunning. First visit and our... More

Visited the Spitalfields venue on many occasion. Always great !! The Hawksmoor restaurants are better known and more frequented these days, but for me they're still the go-to steak restaurant in London. Choice of steak, quality sides, service and hustly ambience all mark it out. Looking forward to my next visit!

Truly delicious steak but I'm not sure it is worth the hype or the high prices. The service was incredibly slow. Atmosphere was nice, but it just didn't live up to its popularity.

We went with medium-high expectations, especially after so many postive reviews. However the place, without being bad, it was far from memorable. We had an average Sunday roast (pricey). The place lacks interest or charm. Service was not as brilliant as reviewed (or at least our waitress did not find the time to offer a single smile during the meal).... More

My boyfriend booked the hawksmoor for my birthday before going to see a show. We arrived into the gorgeous venue and the staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We sat down to prosecco on arrival and a huge birthday cake with a personal message after the meal. Steak was incredible! We were unsure what to go for but the waitress... More

I took my wife for a date night on a Monday evening. Amazingly, you can bring your own wine on a Monday for £5 corkage; a real bargain. The ground floor is the restaurant, the lower is the bar. We are just in the restaurant which is typically Hawksmoor style but lacks the real underground cellar vibe of seven dials... More

We brought an Australian visitor to dinner at Hawksmoor … a bold move to bring someone who is constantly exposed to great steak to a steak restaurant in a country perhaps not renowned for its steak, but we did so based on umpteen recommendations from friends in terms of the quality of the steaks. The feel of the place is... 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.
