Would recommend sharing a larger cut of meat with someone, these are the tastiest. The macaroni cheese is essential, as are the triple cooked chips. The service was amazing, complimentary chocolates alongside our desert too.

I would give 6 stars just for the meat quality and care in preparation . I’d say it’s very hard to get a rib eye more tasty and juicy than here . If I were to open a restaurant , that’s where I would steal...More

I’ve been coming here since 2010 and it still remains my favourite steakhouse in the world, and I’ve eaten a lot of steak in a lot of countries. In fact, I don’t usually go a week without a rib eye….serious. As far the quality/taste of...More

The meal was superb, staff amazing, service perfect, I cannot fault the experience. We had a party of 8, and everyone had an amazing meal.

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.

Hello there, I don't believe there is as it is located next to Borough market but do check with the restaurant and see what they say.

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.
