My fish simply melted off the bone and my partner said that his steak delicious (even better than Gaucho's). Service was efficient and our waitress was polite and knowledgeable about the food. When I booked online, I mentioned that it was my partner's birthday. Our waitress brought some chocolate truffles at the end of the meal for my partner, which... More

Dined at Hawksmoor Spitalfields last night and had a wonderful time. Food was excellent and all the staff were so very helpful. My wife accidentally spilled her glass of red wine and the staff were there immediately with paper towels and when they noticed some of the wine stained her coat, they brought over some soda water to dab on...

This is the best Sunday roast in London – by far! The beef is so tender, full of flavour and melt in your mouth. Veggies are cooked to perfection and the Yorkshire pudding is very crispy and definitely the best one I ever had. For dessert I had a toffee pudding with ice cream which was absolutely yummy! They also have... More

Very friendly staff, good coördination between barkeeper and serving staff especially when you're waiting for a table. Crab on toast is a recommendation, delicious. And the stakes are excellent, try the 3 times Cooked potatoes, almost never tasted such crispy chips. A place to remember.

We were very lucky to have a table in the rear section of the restaurant a little more cosy and quieter. The food was all excellent, everything the for of us chose totally lived up to expectations. The service was attentive but not intrusive and very good. All in all a very good choice of restaurant.

This is a high quality restaurant with excellent food with added good service. However, a little but coloured by the negotiation over which menu was on offer. We had booked through top table, received email confirmation but upon arriving told that we had not booked in this way and were there on the full price menu. Following a very pleasant... More

We've been going to Hawksmoor for several years now and it's still our favourite steak restaurant in London. The service is always friendly and attentive. The food is really good. For entrees I'd recommend the potted beef with yorkshires if you're hungry. The bone marrow, crab and scallops are also excellent. So sad they've stopped serving steak tartare though -... 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

Neighbourhood 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.
