Hawksmoor Borough Market

Sometimes, you can have too much of a good thing.

But this is never true when it comes to steak.

A fact triumphantly demonstrated by the arrival of the sixth London branch of steakhouse mammoth Hawksmoor in South London for the first time. Specifically, you’ll find it in a former Victorian fruit warehouse opposite Borough Market, where, conveniently, most of its suppliers – like The Ginger Pig, Chegworth Valley and Neal’s Yard Dairy – are also planted.

It’s a sizeable affair, seating 140 over two floors trussed up in its now signature mix of polished, wood-panelled walls, parquet flooring and vintage furnishings. The ground floor is devoted to the main dining space; low-lit, elegant, and eminently convivial. Downstairs, meanwhile is the tiled Cooks’ Room (equipped with its own private kitchen), which simultaneously provides an excellent private dining room and a venue for their monthly supperclub, that notably allows smaller groups to experience the grand Beef Feasting Menu.

The menu upstairs, meanwhile, still touts their famously “dictionary-thick” steaks, 35 day hung and sourced from Yorkshire Longhorn cattle, but you’ll also find Old Spot belly ribs; potted smoked mackerel; fillet carpaccio with pickled chestnut mushrooms; spice-roasted cauliflower with beery raisins; and their inimitable Sunday roast – as well as the ‘anti-fogmatic’ cocktails and bridging drinks that first turned heads back in their Spitalfields Bar.

Unfortunately you can have too many of those.


NOTE: Hawksmoor Borough Market is open daily 12-2.30pm and 5-10.30pm (all day service at weekends, Sundays close at 9pm). You can find out more and book on their website right HERE.
