British steakhouse Hawksmoor now has well over 10 restaurants across London and the UK, but every single one bears its signature hallmarks: old-school art-deco interiors, high-quality steaks, sustainable seafood and, of course, its epic Sunday roast. You can find this one in Knightsbridge just off Brompton Road and within walking distance from London’s iconic department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols as well as a number of famous museums.
All its steaks are sourced from ethically-reared traditional breeds with the restaurant group championing British bred beef. This commitment to sustainable sourcing is also applied to its fish and seafood, with the restaurant group teaming up with chef and restaurateur Mitch Tonks of seafood restaurant Seahorse, who draws on his network of small-scale suppliers to supply it with the freshest, most sustainable seafood possible.
There are multiple menus available including set offerings and a Sunday roast, while its main a la carte option is offered for lunch and dinner. Kick off with oysters served fried or Vietnamese-style, or choose from starters such as pork belly ribs, Devon crab on toast or smoked salmon with soda bread. The main event really is on the steaks though, with guests invited to pair their choice of cut with a selection of sauces and sides. Choose from large cuts (T-bone, Tomahawk, chateaubriand) or regular cuts (fillet, sirloin, rump), while side dishes include macaroni cheese, garlic mushrooms, creamed spinach, mash and gravy and triple-cooked chips. If you still have room after all of that, puddings come in the form of a sticky toffee sundae, peanut butter shortbread and sticky toffee pudding.
A comprehensive wine list features fine and reserve bottles, rose and orange wines, magnums and halves, port and sherry as well as a premium cellar collection. A mean collection of cocktails is a great way to start your evening, too, such as with a ginza highball (Johnnie Walker black label, apple, lemon verbena, soda) or a sour-cherry negroni (gin, campari, Martini Rubino, sour cherry).
