Thank you so much for all of your hard work in making our wedding an incredible success. The work beforehand and all of the team's work and service was amazing and helped it all to run so smoothly. As anticipated, the food was outstanding and so many people have commented on how it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The restaurant is a beautiful venue and made our day even more special - the amazing weather helped too! We couldn't recommend you & the venue enough. Look forward to visiting soon.

We had the most amazing day and want to thank you and the team at Hawksmoor for everything you did to make it the most perfect day, and without doubt, the best day of our lives. You all delivered everything that we wanted and more, and we are extremely grateful for your professionalism, friendliness and damn right fantasticness. We couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you very much. We have been told time and time again that it was the best wedding food people had ever had, plus the building, team and atmosphere was all praised highly too. In fact, a lot of people have told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to!

Wedding 2013
Venue Service

By Lanny and Adam, on 08 Nov 2013

We cannot thank Hawksmoor enough for our amazing wedding reception. From start to finish - the staff, the food, the everything – all beautifully executed and we wouldn’t change a single thing. And Alice, the events manager – nothing was ever too much trouble and without her we would have been completely lost! When we started planning our wedding, we knew only one thing for sure – that we wanted a day that felt like it was our own. So no chair covers, or dried out chicken breasts, or any of the other tired old wedding clichés – we wanted steak! And steak we had. Every guest waddled out of there like it had been their last meal. Some even took party bags full of leftovers home with them. A job well and truly done! Lanny & Adam, May 2013

Thank you..

Thank you to the Hawksmoor Guildhall team for making our wedding reception such an amazing evening for us! We had the most amazing day ever and so much of that was down to your hard work. All the time and effort you put in over the past few months really showed, everything went so smoothly and the way you managed the night, so that we could just enjoy ourselves, was fantastic and hugely appreciated. We’ve been inundated with friends and family raving about the food and the staff – everyone had a brilliant time and our guests have been unanimous in declaring it the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding with the most attentive (and fun!) staff. We couldn’t agree more!

Nothing was too much trouble...
Venue Service

By Jonathan and Nadia, January 2013, on 23 Apr 2013

At first, the idea of having our wedding reception at Hawksmoor seemed like fantasy, but while at a special dinner at one of the Hawksmoor restaurants, we discovered that, we could have the sole use of Hawksmoor Guildhall for our wedding venue. Yes we know that Hawksmoor do amazing meat – the best in town – but can they deliver 100 covers simultaneously? The answer is a resounding yes, with the ease and style that you would expect from this world-class steak restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble for the team they helped us put together an amazing evening. The room looked wonderful and every single guest was spellbound by the food and service. The fact that the staff clearly wanted to be there, working for our wedding day, made us feel even more special than we did already. We would recommend anyone planning a wedding to check out Hawksmoor.
