"This is a carnivore’s utopia. Hawksmoor has crammed in as many bits of animal as possible into its sharing breakfast: pig’s trotter in the baked beans and short-rib in the bubble and squeak to go with Jurassic-sized bone marrow and smoked bacon chop, black pudding, and sausages (from pork, beef and mutton). Hawksmoor is fantastic at taking simple ideas to new levels and the cornflake milkshake is a divine concept, offering a nod to the sweet milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl." Food and Travel
"Hawksmoor sometimes seems less a restaurant than a meat-worshipping cult, such are the levels of devotion its weighty, dry-aged, charcoal-grilled beef inspires. But while the steaks steal the show, don’t miss the breakfast at the Guildhall branch, a feast of black pudding, bone marrow, short rib bubble & squeak, sausages, beans and all-you-can-eat (now there’s a challenge worth rising to...) toast."

"Best Power Breakfast in London." GQ
"Early risers can set themselves up with an epic Hawksmoor breakfast (£35 for two), featuring smoked bacon chops, ‘trotter baked beans’ & short-rib bubble & squeak." Square Meal
"The black pudding was the best I’ve ever tasted. Soft, melt in the mouth juicy and perfectly spiced. The bastardisation of the vegetables was brilliantly done. Baked beans taste better when they’ve been trotterfied and the bits of beef hidden in the bubble and squeak were wonderfully sinful."
"If you really want a proper breakfast, a real treat I’d be hard put to think of anywhere that could provide it with such inventiveness, sense of fun and sheer panache, all wrapped up with a nod British culinary history. It really is genuinely superb." Dan, Essex Eating Blog
