We love you Hawksmoor and all your meaty goodness, and we love you even more now you’ve taken the party to Knightsbridge. Expect less old school, library styles, and more Asian inspiration (from the owner’s recent travels to Asia), so those famous green banquettes have been swapped for yellow ones to keep it funky fresh. In addition to the selection of legendary Ginger Pig steaks and killer cocktails, you can treat yourself to dishes like Singapore-styled Deviled Brixham lobster, Vietnamese-style oysters and a lobster roll with Sriracha.
Descend the marble stair case and you'll find a glamorous subterranean Art Deco interior, where bar guests can down their Shaky Pete's Ginger Brews, marmalade cocktails and butter-washed Old Fashioneds from the safety of pear yellow leather banquettes. As always the service is impeccable and the food and drink mega. Plus its location is perfect if you’re suffering with museum legs and need a pick-me-up, so head down for their set menu available at lunch and early in the evening - a chargrilled rib-eye and a punchy cocktail will get you back on track.
Book a table and take a gang along for a meat-fuelled take over. We say go big - the big boys are listed on the black boards around the restaurant, the ones on the menu are small fry. We took down a Porterhouse, lobster mac n cheese, a tonne of bone barrow, some triple cooked chips and some delicious wine recommended by the charming sommelier. Amen.
