Restaurant description

Praised by many as the UK’s finest steak restaurant, Hawksmoor Edinburgh is housed within the Grade A-listed former National Bank of Scotland Banking Hall. Refurbished to celebrate the building’s original features, the restaurant draws upon the amazing produce Scotland has to offer.

Headed by a range of door wedge-thick ‘large cuts’ ordered by desired weight (and ideal for sharing), the Hawksmoor menu also offers premium steak cuts, fresh fish and an array of luxury sides. Along with prime meat cuts from small British farms, enjoy indulgences like potted beef with bacon and Yorkshires, or roast scallops with tarragon & garlic. Must-try puddings include peanut butter shortbread with salted caramel ice cream, and pineapple and coconut pavlova.

The Sunday roast, voted the best in the UK by Observer Food Monthly, is served with perfected trimmings, with meat cuts including a slow-roast rump, or slow-roast prime rib. A revolutionary cocktail list at Hawksmoor in Edinburgh includes categories like ‘eye opening’ anti-fogmatics, and light afternoon ‘bridging drinks’.

Find Edinburgh’s Hawksmoor restaurant a short walk from Waverley Station.

Please note, Sunday roasts are not available after 5pm.

    It is very difficult to catch the eye of a waiter - they don't seem to be aware of people waving their arms etc. Two of them were chatting to each other and ignoring the diners. My husband and I walked out of here once before because of the poor service (before we ordered). I doubt I'd go back again.

    It was a great meal and the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. They were accommodating when I had to email them directly to change the booking time.

    A lovely experience but my steak was overcooked, took some time but the second attempt was delicious

    Love The Hawksmoor. Staff are very good and knowledgeable. Due to an allergy dishes were explained to ensure nothing was ordered that could cause a problem. Food was excellent. The starter of Yorkshire puddings and potted beef is superb. Steaks cooked to perfection.
