Summary

“Excellent steaks and burgers” do win a sizeable band of fans for the Hawksmoor group’s budget chain of spin-offs, but – while decent enough – they seem lacklustre for a business associated with such a key brand: detractors don’t say they’re appalling or anything, just a bit… meh. The Chiswick branch failed to gain traction and shut up shop this year.

Summary

For a “cheap ’n’ cheerful” steak, most reporters do commend these Hawksmoor-lite spin-offs as a “fun” and affordable option (including for brunch). But while “it’s a decent standard of food, nothing is out-of-the-ordinary”.

Summary

For a “reliable and solid” meat-fest, fans commend these Hawksmoor-lite spin-offs, also tipped for a “great brunch” and for “going the extra mile for kids”. Even supporters can say they are “not exciting” though, and critics say: “I really, really, really want to love it, but I find the food and menu disappointing”.

Summary

“First class” steaks and “cool” styling win fans for these Hawksmoor-lite spin-offs, which now have a Stoke Newington branch as well as the Clerkenwell original; “prices add up quickly” however, results can be “unspectacular”, and – while “edgy” – the decor is a tad “functional”.
