Summary

No-one doubts the quality of this cult, London steakhouse chain: “amid all the bling of aspirational dining and the dirty burgers of Manchester, Hawksmoor stands quietly and reassuringly expensively head and shoulders above the rest in terms of pure class – the meat is first-rate” and they serve “amazing cocktails”. The ratings of this operation “in an old court house, full of nooks and crannies” (a bit “cavernous” and “gloomy”), are coming under pressure though: “trying to be metropolitan in Manchester doesn’t always work” and “the elephant in the room is of course, the prices… they just make you wince”.

Summary

“Standards have been maintained in the move to Manchester”, and this outpost of the legendary London steakhouse chain “is a fine addition to the city's improving dining scene”. In fact enthusiasm here is just as it was in the early days of the brand’s original debut in the capital, with adulation for its “confident” menu, “fabulous” steaks, and “engaging and knowledgeable” service.

Summary

This acclaimed steakhouse group finally makes its move outside the capital, having snapped up a space in a former courthouse building on Deansgate, just a stone’s throw from the city’s new Spinningfields development; opening early-2015.
