COVID-19 Update for Hawksmoor Edinburgh

Updated on 28 Jul 2020

We have always taken the safety of our staff and customers extremely seriously and tried to achieve what we would consider a gold standard for the industry.  In light of the current Coronavirus pandemic this has never been more important.  We are opening with the same philosophy that has always under-pinned health and safety and hygiene at Hawksmoor: we work extremely hard behind the scenes to make everything as safe for our staff and customers as possible, so that when you come and sit in our restaurants everything will feel as normal as possible.

We are lucky to have restaurants where social distancing is relatively easy, to have been invited to consult with government on the guidance over the last months as part of their technical team, and to have the resources to ensure we go above and beyond that guidance in terms of cleaning, training and employing third parties to audit us as Covid-secure.  Below is a high-level summary of our approach, but for a more belts-and-braces version we will be providing more information a week after the government publishes its final guidance.

The fundamental principles that underpin government guidance are that the low contagion risks associated with Covid-19 in restaurants are best diminished further via social distancing, enhanced hygiene, specific risk assessments and careful management of our workforce – for example with enhanced hygiene training and by working with two separate teams for each restaurant wherever possible.

As well as following all these guidelines we have also worked with our specialist cleaning contractors and our specialist health and safety consultants to develop a Covid-safe standard for Hawksmoor restaurants that we believe also represents a gold standard and on which we are audited, not just by Environmental Health Officers but also by our central team and own consultants.  This includes regular disinfecting of surfaces and key hand contact points throughout the restaurant.

Our staff’s wellbeing is absolutely crucial to us – we look after them so that they can look after you.  There are various steps we’re taking at the moment in addition to those described above.  All staff have been bought face masks to wear on public transport or back of house in the restaurants, as well as personal bottles of hand sanitiser that they keep with them at all times.  We do specific health checks every day and continue to support staff members who are more vulnerable on a case-by-case basis.

As with our staff we want you to feel as relaxed and content as possible at Hawksmoor.  That may mean you have requests that reflect your own view of risks – disposable napkins or menus for example – and, as with any reasonable customer request at Hawksmoor, you should feel free to ask and we will do whatever we can to make you feel comfortable during your visit.

We believe that customers are likely to want Hawksmoor to do what it has always done and offer people a haven from the outside world, where you can enjoy your meal with the people you’re eating and drinking with without being confronted by a sterile environment or having our extensive regime to ensure your wellbeing too overt.  If we learn differently we will adapt, and as always we would welcome your feedback.

About Hawksmoor Edinburgh

Following the opening of a site in Manchester, steakhouse juggernaut Hawksmoor has once again expanded its remit beyond the capital with this new site in Edinburgh. Finding its home in the grand art deco banking hall of a Grade-A listed building on St Andrew Square, the space boasts 185 covers and includes a 12-seat private dining room. The impressive building has been sensitively and sympathetically refurbished to celebrate its original features and is a beautiful setting for your next business lunch or dinner with friends. 

The restaurant draws from the incredible produce Scotland has to offer with beef from grass-fed cattle and seafood sourced from the Scottish Coast. From the kitchen, you can expect the usual run of grilled meat and fish dishes, including starters of potted beef and bacon with Yorkshires, and Tarbert crab on toast. Mains include the signature steaks alongside alternatives such as a double cheeseburger with chips, or a veggie option of ash baked beetroots with green sauce and whipped ricotta. To round things off, there’s sticky toffee pudding, ice cream sundaes and salted caramel rolos, while fun cocktails include a Nuclear Banana Daiquiri. 

Those looking to enjoy steak on St Andrew Square will discover everything they need at Hawksmoor Edinburgh, just a short walk from Princes Street, it is conveniently located and easy to reach.
