To start, the Guildhall branch of the Hawksmoor empire is both very successful and always very busy. Also, it is very “London”, it seems a lot like the kind of dining room you might see in black & white movies where city gents dine together. A pity, then that while the meat is an obvious performer, the service lacks refinement, the wine list is pedestrian and due to the low ceiling it gets – literally – very stuffy during later lunch hours. Then, there is always the cost, with which I have an issue: This is a very good place to take out-of-town business people for an “authentic” British City business lunch, however, it lacks refinement and elegance in relation to its frankly astronomic pricetag.
