While Hawksmoor may have its roots in London, it’s now an honorary Mancunian and firmly established as one of the best restaurants in the city. Famed for business lunches or Sunday roasts, the vibrant dining room at Hawksmoor bears a London-esque air, filled with chatter, clatter and surprisingly enjoyable music. You might even see a celebrity indulging in a plate of oysters.
Known for their grounded charm, the staff here are among the most knowledgeable and professional you’ll encounter in the region. But, before you consider settling down for dinner, ensure you explore Hawksmoor’s cocktail menu – one of the city’s finest. We suggest the sour cherry negroni for those who appreciate a bittersweet flavour, or perhaps a delightful lychee martini. Dinner is almost inevitably centred around their impeccably sourced beef, ranging from chateaubriand to rump and chips – and it would be unwise to overlook the addition of a ramekin of creamy anchovy hollandaise. For those who aren’t red meat enthusiasts, fear not, there’s a selection of oysters, chargrilled monkfish, garlic butter-infused chicken and even, yes you heard it right, vegetarian options on the menu.
