We love Christmas as much as the next man, but sometimes we feel we don’t love it as much as the next restaurant. At Hawksmoor we go about our festive business with restraint – tasteful decorations in the restaurants like a beautiful tree or wreath here and there, a small number of festive traditions like the Hawksmoor Christmas Burger* or Carla’s incredible Mince Pies, all proceeds going to Shelter to help make sure Christmas has something for everyone. The occasional festive touch, like Maple roasted parsnips and bacon or Sprouts with chestnuts, or a nod to a classic like Cows in blankets or Christmas Eve pudding.
You won’t find us piping Mariah Carey into the street or coming up with some hilarious festive LOL-in-a-glass that we send to every food magazine in early October (although you might find some delicious cocktail recipes for Christmas parties in Sunday Times Magazine from us soon). Surely no one wants two months of tinsel and tat?
If, as we suspect, what you might quite like for Christmas at Hawksmoor is our usual fare, alongside a nod to the season, with friends, family, or colleagues now’ the time to book. We cater to large groups in all of our restaurants offering sharing menus from £50 per person that feature Hawksmoor classics alongside our native breed, 35 day dry-aged steaks and sustainable South Coast seafood. And absolutely no turkey. Except in that Christmas Burger.
For more elaborate celebrations we have three private dining rooms in London – Spitalfields, Borough and Guildhall where you can choose from a selection of menus, matching wines, and cocktails on arrival.
Hawksmoor Spitalfields can seat up to 55 in the upstairs restaurant or if London’s best new cocktail list and bar snack is more your style, Spitalfields Bar hosts up to 70 standing. The Cooks’ Room at Hawksmoor Borough is a unique Private Dining Room with its own open kitchen and can seat up to 18 guests. Hawksmoor Guildhall, boasts a 22-person Private Dining Room available for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
