Vegetarians: look away now…
In October 2011 Hawksmoor’s third London steak restaurant and cocktail bar opened by Moorgate, on the corner of Basinghall Street and Gresham Street.
If you’ve already had a Ginger Pig-reared, 35-day hung, Longhorn Cattle steak cooked for you on one of the charcoal grills at the Hawksmoor in Spitalfields or in Seven Dials, then you’re probably online and booking yourself in to the new Hawksmoor Guildhall right now.
And if you still haven’t visited one of Hawksmoor’s London steak restaurants, then the only thing you need know is that you’re missing out – very probably – on one of the best steak restaurants in London.
While our opinion is obviously of most importance to you, please know that pretty much every food critic you have ever heard of – and many more that you haven’t – also consider the thick, award-winning, juicy pink Hawksmoor steaks to be the best that the capital has to offer (particularly as they come hand-in-hand with triple-cooked chips, great staff and a winning cocktail list).
The wood-panelled, gentlemen’s club decor at Hawksmoor Guildhall is as impressive as the steaks are. Expect new tweaks and additions to the menu from executive chef Richard Turner, as well as a walk in wine room for tastings and a range of ports by the glass (via London’s first Port enomatic machine). There’s also a private dining room, which you can book for a ‘tongue to tail’ cow tasting menu.
And here’s the real perk – open daily from 7am, Hawksmoor Guildhall also takes your power-breakfasting needs extremely seriously.
The inclusion on the menu of bourbon-infused cornflake milkshakes and marmalade martinis both firmly attest to that.
NOTE: Hawksmoor Guildhall is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday-Friday. Find out more, or book a table right HERE.
