Our chosen restaurant for dinner before lockdown number 2 started. I had heard good things about this restaurant but it really outdid itself. The service was immaculate from the moment we opened the door, the decor is luxurious and comfy seats at tables. We had the express menu which is extremely good value for money and the food was simply sublime! Melt in your mouth steak cooked to perfection, perfect sides and you cannot leave without tasting the peanut butter shortbread! 10/10 will definitely be back!

Excellent as always. High quality steaks cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Quick but not rushed and we were left to thoroughly enjoy our afternoon. I’ve always loved Hawksmoor but their approach and adaptation during the COVID crisis has been spot on. Can’t wait to come back in December!

The Sunday roast was outstanding! The roast potatoes were so crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the beef literally melted in the mouth! The portion size was huge too (although it was so tasty that I had no problem eating every last morsel!)

A great chateaubriand steak, not cheap of course, but superb. Strange experience as the restaurant was quite quiet, but as a result we had excellent service. Originally booked a table for four, but with London now in Tier 2 we had two separate tables socially distanced. We could converse with our friends without a problem. Would thoroughly recommend a visit if steaks are your thing. We felt perfectly safe.

Honestly my experience at Hawksmoor Guildhall has to be the BEST restaurant experience I have had to date. From the moment we entered, to the moment we left, we felt like a part of the Hawksmoor family. The food was second to none, we had a fillet and a kilo porterhouse with all the trimmings. The best addition to my meal was the bone marrow, it melted in my mouth and added so much umami to the already meaty steak. It’s a must needed addition to the meal. Thank you Hawksmoor Guildhall for making our evening such a special one during this interesting time. We will be back!

Went on a mid week and it was nice and quiet. The service as always was excellent you even went out to fetch fresh tomatoes for us😁. My only complaint was my food was slightly fatty and under cooked.

An excellent dinner! We went for my boyfriends birthday as it’s his fave restaurant, and we’re not disappointed- incredibly delicious food (for me this was tricky as I’m a gluten-free vegan, but the staff were amazing with showing me options, and I left the restaurant extremely satisfied and full), super friendly staff, stunning place, Covid was covered but not alluded to in a negative light, the whole experience was perfect...truly the ear out experience I’ve ever had in London!
