We try to do things the right way at Hawksmoor, not because it’s trendy and cool or because we’re natural tree-huggers or hippy peaceniks. We do it because we want to – it’s the kind of company we want to be and the kind of restaurants we want to run. We want a business we can be proud of – whether that’s making sure the food we serve is as good as possible, that the animals lived a decent life, or that everyone who works with us enjoys what they do.
Four accolades we’re particularly proud of are eight consecutive years in Sunday Times Best Companies, being shortlisted as one of the most sustainable restaurant groups in the country by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, being given an award by Action Against Hunger for passing £1million in fundraising and donations in 2017, and being given the Marco Longer Award for Changing Lives for supporting One Water Foundation.
We are aware that we are privileged to work every day with food and drink and it feels right for us to support charities that help people access these things when they are most in need.
To help our charity partners continue their work we donate 50p from every Shakey Pete and Chocolate tart (or Ambassadors reception in Knightsbridge, Manchester & Edinburgh) sold to Action against Hunger, Foot Gambia, Magic Breakfast and Social Bite. We also Hold an annual charity dinner in aid of Action Against Hunger, which has raised £550,000 over the past seven years, and donate all sales of our two cookbooks to their cause.
Thank you so much to you, our amazing customers, for supporting these fantastic causes, without you all of this wouldn’t be possible.
