Trip Report Hawkesmoor Restaurant London: Highly recommended for meat lovers, but expensive

Jump to last reply

I am a carnivore; I could eat red meat every day, and always seek the very best steak. I think I may have found it at Hawksmoor!

Saturday night, three of us went to the Seven Dials branch, 11 Langley Street, London WC2H 9JG, in Covent Gardens.

We started with cocktails – the Dandy (Cognac stirred with Maraschino & Benedictine, topped with Champagne. Adapted from a punch served at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria in the 1930s. We’ve taken a more refined approach, eschewing the original’s soda water in favour of more champagne.)

We ordered Bone-in Prime Rib (£7.50/100g) a substantial 1.1 KG slab of meat, cooked medium (as recommended), with beef dripping fries (like my Mammy used to make)and triple cooked chips.

Wine: We ordered the St. Cheze, ‘Cuvée Caroline’ St Joseph 2011 (£60), and followed with a very acceptable Australian Shiraz (Plan B - £25).

Total bill for three was £230. Expensive, but well worth it, if you love your meat.

Book well in advance.
