Had a fantastic lunch - as it was my 60th Birthday they presented me with my dessert with a candle and Happy Birthday written in chocolate. That wasn't the end of the surprise - instead of the bill I had a lovely Birthday card saying the bill was on the Hawksmoor staff. So chuffed and so kind for them to do this. Thank you Hawksmoor!

I met with two friends for lunch and we all really enjoyed it. The staff were lovely and explained everything to one of my friends who needed to have a gluten free option. We had a choice of either the lunch menu or full menu. We all enjoyed our meals and were not rushed to leave after we had finished. We will definitely visit again.
