Visited here for the first time and was expected to be blown away by the food and the service. They only reason we came was because you're voted one of the best places in London for steak. Maybe we were just unlucky, but £200 for...More

Had to come back to ensure that this place delivers consistently, and it did 100%! We wanted some help with the red wines as we didn't want to overspend, and like most London restaurants the wine can account for a large proportion of the overall...More

Six of us went for dinner and we were not disappointed at all. My 750g steak was cooked to perfection and the attention we received from the waitress was superb. It is a little pricey but worth it.

Finally got round to visiting Hawksmoor, really excited to try the 'best steak in London' only to leave feeing very underwhelmed. It seems Hawksmoor are relying heavily on their (I'm sure previously well deserved) reputation and just kind of coasting along. Long tables full of...More

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.

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.
