Came here last Sunday for a roast after seeing the reviews about how good it was what I like is that the general mood is casual and not to formal. We shared scallops to start and then had roast beef which was amazing I had mine medium rare and just about managed to finish it all we had a side... More

I really just love the setup of the place. The restaurant upstairs has a classy feel to it while the bar area downstairs is super cozy and offers top notch quality cocktails. There is nice (and fatty) bar food available while in the restaurant area you're allowed to go H.A.M.!

Fantastic bar which we initially visited on the gin journey tour. The 'history of gin ' cocktail was fantastic but the best thing was the burgers , best I've ever had. High recommended but watch out for the 12.5% service charge on the bill .

Yum...what can I say....if you love your red meat, this is the place for you! Visited with my friends and it has a great relaxed ambience, the waiting staff were lovely and explained all the different options for 'sharing' platters but we decided to have our own. We then saw what the table next to us had and changed our... More

We came here for Saturday lunch after being highly recommended by friends, but unfortunately I was quite let down. It was just over priced steak! The restaurant was quite busy (not that that is a bad thing) but it does make it quite noisy to other diners and I thought the tables were placed too close to each other. I... More

A Thursday night, 8 people and a table at Hawksmoor Spitalfields. Dark, noisy and very busy - but in a good way. From the moment we arrived until we left, we had very attentive helpful staff (thanks Marco) Excellent food, good atmosphere.... looking forward to our next visit

Just realised I missed reviewing this fabulous steak restaurant! I visited here before leaving the UK for Indonesia and the steak is truly amazing with beautifully served vegetables. We parked at the nearby whites row car park which I think may be closed now. Remember to have your steak rare and bloody....after all you are in jack the ripper territory!... More

I've visited this restaurant a few times and each time is as good as the last. The service is always very customer orientated and the staff seem to enjoy what they do. The steak is probably the best I've had in London, the chateaubriand being the highlight.

Pros: Home-made ketchup, hip atmosphere Cons: Expensive, Some food items were underwhelming We had the rib-eye, the sirloin, triple-cooked chips, macaroni and cheese, and sourdough bread. My husband had the rib-eye and he said it was one of the best cooked steaks in his entire life. I had the sirloin and thought it was a solid steak. The triple-cooked chips,... More

This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out

Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening.

We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations.

It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions.

For information on private hire and events, please contact our events department.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
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.
