Despite its vast scale, Hawksmoor feels friendly and relaxed.
We started with the comforting potted beef and bacon and hand-dived scallops, but the menu centres around steak, so when in Rome… The fillet was tender and cooked to perfection even if it did look lonely on the plate at £34. The rib-eye came in at an
only slightly less spendy £28.
Sides and a rich Stichelton hollandaise cost extra. Puds are awesome so don’t scrimp here – try the giant Ferrero Rocher (Ambassador’s reception) or the pineapple and coconut pavlova – a treat for piña colada fans.
