Other than mixing our steaks up, and missing sides the overall experience was good. The steak was very nice.

Fantastic. First visit to the Borough site - (normally go to Seven Dials / Air Street)

Served by Mohammed, very informative and helpful. Didn’t rush us nor made to wait. Top notch!

Food at every level was fab. Can’t beat the steaks..

Reception team got us in an hour earlier too which was appreciated.

Great meal, thank you 🙏

Been to quite a few Hawksmoors but first time in Southwark. Excellent food, wine and service. It’s not cheap but it’s worth every penny.

Usually my favourite steak place. The steak was chewier than usual although still nice. Had several different waiters which impacted the service although as always everyone was polite.

Such a poor experience – to begin with our waitress cleared our steaks with more than half left uneaten, and didn’t bother to ask what went wrong. The food (especially triple cooked chips and steak) arrived cold and over spiced. By far the worse experience we had in any of the Hawksmoors and really poor value for the money - £177. Go elsewhere.

This is the second time going to haksmore and getting placed in the side seating area. The area around the bar is alot more nice and ambient. Also I really don't like the tables that are not facing eachother. I've requested times to sit in a nice area and it never seems to happen

Really great dinner. Gave 4 out of 5 for food as my ribeye was more medium than medium rare , but was still delicious and I didn’t mind it was a little overcooked as it was so good. In most places I would have sent it back,
if you are particular about your medium rare , may want to be more specific on the rare side . Staff were attentive and I had a first rate meal

Previous Sunday roasts have been sublime but it was a little underwhelming this time around - potatoes on the dry side. The shallot and garlic were undercooked.

We were celebrating a belated 25th wedding anniversary and our first outing as a family post Covid lockdowns. We had a round table at the end of the restaurant area which was nicely spaced from the rest of the restaurant, and on hand for the waiting staff who had a bar/work station adjacent. There was plenty of light and ventilation (which the windows being open) so it was cool and also 'safe' environment.

The food was exquisite - everything the 5 of us had was delicious, well presented and very edible!! The drink pairings were spot on for desserts which were sublime.

The waiting staff were attentive, thoughtful and on the ball - they did not rush us at all even though we had a 2.5 hour limit on the table. The welcome on arrival was pleasant and effortless. Usual track and trace and forms to fill in but nothing too onerous.

We simply had the best experience not just because we were so happy to be out/out but because we made totally the right decision about our restaurant choice and the food on offer.

Awesome beef perfectly cooked. Not cheap, but worth every penny. The wine list is extensive and excellent.
Staff are relaxed & friendly, but not over the top.
The lunch deal is fantastic value for money.

We judge steak. In a very judgy way. We are fussy. We only like paying for good steak, otherwise we would go to the butchers and we don’t eat red meat a whole lot. But it’s not just steak. It’s the starters, the sides, the wine and the Rolos. Every time. The rolos.

We were a bit draw dropped at the bill this time. We ordered a 900g chateuaxbriand and didn’t ask how much before hand! We both only had one boozy drink and the price seemed higher than in past visits. So there was a bit of a grumble when the bill came but that was our own doing. Yet. When we tried to work out where else we would eat and enjoy steak like we do at Hawksmoore...there just isn’t anywhere. So we talked about a trip to Argentina to get an equal comparison.

The rolos. Every time.
