“The stuff meaty dreams are made of!” – this “vibrant yet relaxed” outpost of the hipster steakhouse chain (which opened in 2015) is arguably the classiest all-rounder in Manchester. “The bar area may be a bit overwhelmingly clubby, but the main dining area is – at least at lunchtime – light and airy”, occupying an impressively converted Victorian space, and with comfortable seating. Steaks are “amazing”, “all the sides are also faultless” (not least “the best chips in the north west!”), and also “what is surprising is the quality of the seafood in what is a carnivore’s delight”. “Service is always top notch and the wine list is a dream”. Sadly, though, the special offer whereby you can buy £4,500 bottles of wine for £300 has now finished!

“Now established as one of Manchester’s best restaurants”, the northern outpost of this epic modern steakhouse group has recreated much of the special aura it has established ‘darn sarf’ with its formula of “first class” British steaks, well-crafted cocktails, and “slick service”, all provided in an impressively converted Victorian space. “It’s not a cheap day out… but blimey it’s worth it!” according to (nearly all) reporters. Top Tip: “despite the meat focus, the seafood here is a hidden gem – it’s stellar, as is the wine list”.

“Classy like a Rolls Royce… and just as reassuringly expensive” – the “Hawksmoor formula has transferred solidly from London to Manchester” where it occupies “an impressive Victorian building” and has become “a well-established part of the Manchester scene”, inspiring more reports than anywhere else in the city this year. “The steaks are succulent and perfectly cooked”, “the chips are the best in the NW!”, “service is brilliant”, in fact it’s just “a-ma-zing” – OK, some would argue “overpriced”, but for most folks “oh, so worth it”.

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”.

"Had a mixed meal. The steak was good but not great. Wine service very poor, highly recommended a wine they then didn't have and a second recommendation was average. When we just insisted on a wine we did better. Good buzy atmosphere."
