You can feel the love when you walk into the Hawksmoor – love for a great cocktail, love for a meal with friends, and more than anything, a deep, unfaltering love for delicious hunks of juicy meat. This Hawksmoor Seven Dials spot takes the trusted values of this sacred London house of steak to another level of connoisseurship. Start with a boozy Millionaire Cocktail or the spicy ginger brew, which arrives in a solid beer mug. The combination of cold Jerusalem artichokes and the pork belly ribs with their ridiculously tasty 15-spice and molasses marinade will have you on your knees. Share your steak and get something from the blackboard – order it how you like it. The real charcoal grills do the Ginger Pig meat such justice as does a side of green salad and macaroni and cheese. A top bottle of red (of which there are many) is a must. Mediocrity is a foreign concept here and this is what makes the Hawksmoor the best steak house in London. / Chloe McCloskey
