SquareMeal Review of Hawksmoor Seven Dials Bar

Hawksmoor's butch London steakhouses are bankers for beefed-up cocktails that consistently cut the mustard. The woody basement bar beneath its Covent Garden outpost recalls an officers' mess when hearts of oak still ruled the waves, so grab yourself a swivel stool and settle in for ship-shape toddies, grogs, cups, cobblers, shrubs and punches served by live-wire staff. A navy-strength gimlet should fend off scurvy, while the main ingredient of shipwreck sour (cider brandy, Cognac, ginger wine, lemon and egg white) claims to be a happy by-product of a maritime misadventure off the Devon coast. Tiki-style rum numbers appear in a section entitled ‘disco drinks', while three bottles of Manhattan (£17.50) for two to share could do some serious damage on the dance floor. London ales and porter, lobster rolls, hot dogs and big juicy burgers with to-die-for triple-cooked chips are further reasons to drop anchor here.

We were looked after by the most delightful waitress, Aleksandra, who I believe has only been working at Hawksmoor for 2 weeks, and she could not have been more cheerful and helpful. We shared (thank goodness, as it was enormous) the Yorkshire puddings (a bit overcooked and dry), with potted beef, which was good, but I felt, a little under-seasoned. I then had the short rib and American mustard sandwich with an insanely good bone marrow gravy on the side as a “dip”, and my husband had the fillet steak and triple cooked chips (always superb). As it was a sunny day (even though we were in the basement), I decided that the weather called for a bottle of French Rose. BTW have a cocktail in the bar beforehand, Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew is really good.
