    Pit beef.... is really tender, tasty and comes in a good portion for what you are paying. Bbq beans where great with smash potatoes. Bit expensive but good atmosphere and view of Saint Paul.

    You have to sit at table 71 with view to St. Pauls Cathedral and..... no matter how much you ate you have to try the White Chocolate Cheesecake with Blood Orange Sherbet

    Meat, Meat and more Meat! The Fillet steak with bone marrow and smoken bernaise sauce is one steak that I'll certainly remember. The pit smoked pulled pork is also amazing, not to mention the ribs!!

    Friendly, helpful and well-informed staff are on hand to help you out with your meaty choices and they also have their own butchers adjacent, where you can pick up British meat, poultry and game.

    Fantastic food with an amazing eye level view of St. Paul's Cathedral and the waiters are helpful & polite. Overall, the food is excellent and reasonably priced, unlike their expensive drinks menu!

    Good cocktails and bar staff. The rest really seems like pot luck. Some of the non-meat dishes are trying too hard. Get the St. Paul views if you can to make up for failures elsewhere.

    I complimented the surf & turf oysters, but be careful of the pulled pork shoulder. It's TOO rich in flavor. Found myself chasing it down with water & bread. And I still didn't finish it.

    I found the surf and turf oysters appetizer to be delicious! Perfect balance with the tempura battered oysters w/ the lemon wedge and a light puréed tomato dipping sauce!

    The Baby Back Ribs are truly excellent, as is the Belly Pork. Was disappointed by the puddings though as they lacked the snappy presentation and imagination of the starters and mains.

    Try to get a view of St. Paul's - it's great. Otherwise hawksmoor has better steaks and there are better, cheaper options for bbq food in London (the joint, hotbox, etc)

    Good food but very noisy and hot, especially when you're right next to the grill. Demand a better table if you're seated there. The waiters' table right next to you doesn't help.

    Get the pit beef. It's amazing, and probably the best thing on their menu. I'd skip the chicken. Ask for a seat overlooking St. Paul's.

    Pig's cheek starter and the burger are both agreeable. Avoid window seats on a hot day, or ask the waiting staff to lower the electronic blinds.
