Restaurant description

The third addition to the revered Hawksmoor fold, Hawksmoor Guildhall enjoys a reputation for the best steaks in London. Alongside a buzzing speakeasy-style bar, the walk-in wine room stages refined tasting sessions.

Sourcing the best beef from small British farms, the Hawksmoor menu spans from hearty breakfast offerings, through to its renowned steaks and delicious accompaniments. Bursting with natural flavours, Hawksmoor favourites include delicate crab on toast, or a magnificent sharing cut of porterhouse, where guests can select their desired weight from the blackboard.

Hawksmoor London serves up signature creations for breakfast, with wholesome offerings including a spectacular sharing platter, or a delicious pancake stack. From the old school bar, nostalgic flavours are served in blends like Harry Craddock’s marmalade cocktail, or a creatively concocted house fizz. Offering its own bar and superb bespoke service, a chic private dining room is filled with glossy wood panelling and plush furnishings. A personal bartender prepares signature drinks mixes, and specially designed sharing menus offer a range of dishes and cuts of beef.

Highly praised by top industry critics, Giles Coren of The Times describes Hawksmoor restaurant as ‘flawless’. Nestled in the heart of the city, Moorgate Station is 7 minutes’ walk away.

    Dined with friends at Hawksmoor and went for the Bookatable offer, great starters. My friend had the potted beef and it came with two huge yorkshire puddings. Wasn't too fussed about the rump steak, not the best steak I've had but the desserts were WOW. The server, described in detail each of the menu choices and it was difficult to chose. Went for the Honeycomb sundae and it had great flavours, somehow managed to finish it !? Thought it was quite noisy in the restaurant and it was considered a quite evening. We were originally sat in the middle of the room and the staff were accommodating and allowed us to sit in the 'quieter' corner of the restaurant. All staff were a delight when serving the dishes.

    It’s an institution and mornings packed for breakfast. It’s a bit noisy at times ...

    Loved the food here and the staff were very attentive and knowledgable. Went for the rib eye which was excellent. Was late on a Friday evening so was quite loud. Didn’t bother us too much, but was with old friends and couldn’t quite hear each other. After dinner staff moved us to a quieter table which was great.
