Hawksmoor Borough benefits from the best produce available and the close proximity to suppliers based in Borough Market, as well as our usual focus on great steak, great wine and great cocktails. Our chefs walk round one of the best produce markets in the country and create regularly changing seasonal specials that aren’t available at any other Hawksmoor restaurant.
Aside from its fantastic location, the building itself has a story to tell. The site lies within the grounds of the medieval Winchester Palace, built in the 12th century by the Bishop of Winchester, Henry Blois (who some say chose is said to have chosen the location because of its adjoining brothels). The building was originally built as a hops warehouse in the mid-19th Century by hop merchants Wood, Field & Hanbury, before being taken over in 1933 by Borough Market ‘colonial and foreign fruit’ merchant J O Sims, whereupon it became a fruit warehouse and auction hall.
The menu features our signature native-breed steaks and much-loved seasonal and ethically sourced dishes. We’ll have £5 corkage on Mondays, and on Sundays there are the Roasts that Observer Food Monthly named as one of the best Sunday lunches in the UK. Our Express Menu (£25 for 2 courses, £28 for 3) is available from 12pm until 6.30pm and after 10pm every Monday to Saturday.
Finally, our 14-cover Cook’s Room has its own private kitchen and, when not being used by our chefs creating new dishes, is available for feasting menus, private hire and the occasional special ticketed event!
