Squaremeal Review of Hawksmoor Guildhall ?

With its dark-wood panelling, burnished leather upholstery and largely masculine clientele, Hawksmoor's City outpost still wears the unruffled, timeless air of a private members' club – although the menu has been revamped with a new line-up giving greater prominence to seafood. The kitchen now turns out crunchy breaded oysters with zingy jalapeño tartare or light, summery plates of octopus carpaccio with equal facility, while fish mains include a moreish slab of hake with a fragrant, herby green harissa that's garlicky enough to ward off vampires. Thankfully, resident carnivores needn't worry: the famously hearty and universally "outstanding" steaks are always present and correct, with a new 200g 'fillet tail' now offered for modest appetites. Casually dressed staff are "speedy" and knowledgeable, the wine list includes several 'Guildhall favourites' pitched at City palates, and the commendably serious cocktail list remains a constant enticement. It's "great for client breakfasts" too.

The History of Hawksmoor menu

Six courses for £70, or £110 with accompanying drinks

In 2006 Hawksmoor debuted at Spitalfields, and now, they’re celebrating 10 years and six restaurants with the History of Hawksmoor menu. The six-course set menu cherry-picks Hawksmoor’s greatest hits, such as shortrib nuggets with kimchi ketchup (2012), and Tamworth pork belly ribs (2006). Our highlight was buttery scallops with white port and garlic, which goes to show how versatile this steakhouse is. Drinks include a cocktail, white, red and dessert wines, and a digestif dram of Works Whisky with salted caramel ‘Tributes’ chocolates. If you’re a Hawksmoor fan, you’ll be pleased to hear this menu is money well spent.

Available until September 2016

    Samphire and Salsify :: Hawksmoor, Guildhall | Samphire and Salsify

    Hawksmoor is arguably one of London’s leading steakhouses (of course not forgetting Goodman) and since opening in Manchester, only with Gaucho as real competition, I don’t doubt they’re the best up North too.

    As steakhouses often are, it was all very manly; the fact we were in their Guildhall outpost added to the suity feel. The long basement dining room reminded me of a public school’s lunch hall with its wooden panelled walls. It’s a pretty spot though...

    #FatInside :: #FatInside: Hawksmoor - Guildhall

    Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day and this could very well be the reason Hawkmoor has created what GQ describes as Londons best power breakfast. The famous London Steakhouse holds the reputation for quality meats and it's Guildhall location offers a variety of these for breakfast. The venue is underground and as you walk in you have the feeling of a old cigar club with suited city workers, a classic bar and a dark cosy atmosphere.

    Sharking for Chips and Drinks :: Hawksmoor Guildhall

    They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day; the meal which kickstarts your metabolism and gets you going to face the rest of the day. Old wives tales will tell you that you should be consuming about 20% of your daily calorie intake for breakfast. Well forgot that when you come to breakfast at Hawksmoor because here you’re aiming for 110%.
    The Hawksmoor breakfast is something of a London legend and written into the City’s lore. Intended for 2, it could easily feed 3 if not 4 and to understand why, you just have to review the menu:
    Smoked bacon chop, sausages, (made with pork, beef, & mutton),...
