“Quite simply the best steak I have ever eaten in this country."​ Jay Rayner, The Observer

Voted No. 1 in the World's Best Steak Restaurants 



ranked in the #Top100 Employers in the UK


When we started out we had a simple plan - to open the best steak restaurant in London. We travelled the world, from steakhouse to steakhouse, searching for the perfect steak, but discovered that beef from carefully reared cattle right here in Britain and cooked simply over real charcoal, packed more flavour than anything we tried on our travels.

We opened our first restaurant in Spitalfields in 2006, and after four years of trying to get that one as good as possible we then opened in Seven Dials, Guildhall, Air Street, Knightsbridge and Borough as well our first restaurants outside of London, in other cities that we love – Manchester and Edinburgh.

Careers with Hawksmoor are among the best – generous pay and benefits, award-winning restaurants, unrivalled career opportunities and some of the happiest people in the business (as voted by the people who work here). We have been recognised as one of the top companies to work for in the UK by Best Companies every year for the past decade.

Working at Hawksmoor

Childhood friends, Will and Huw, opened their first Hawksmoor in East London in 2006. They wanted to buy great quality ingredients and cook them as simply as possible. They also wanted to stay well clear of the rat race, have fun and hang out with nice people who are great at what they do. That Hawksmoor has grown to be one of the most well-respected restaurant groups in the country, winning awards for food, cocktails, sustainability and as a good employer along the way is a dream come true. Best of all, it means they still get to surround themselves with lovely and talented people…. the kind of people you want to spend all day working with. We’re determined to make sure Hawksmoor remains a great place to work, both for people who have been with us from the early days and those who are just joining us now. We offer people:


Our professional training, including Hawksmoor’s management development programme, is recognised as being amongst the best in the industry. We don’t just say we train and develop people, we count on it… we fill around 80% of our management roles through promotion. 

A good manager

Everyone deserves a good manager. So we hire and promote managers for their people skills, we invest in management training, and we encourage and help people to give their managers regular feedback on how they are doing.


We know people work hard and really care about doing a good job; you also deserve care and support from us if you need it. As well as being as considerate as possible about your hours, rota and life outside of work, we offer a whole range of financial, and other benefits to help you with life’s ups and downs.

Fair treatment

It should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: your race, gender, religious beliefs, family situation, sex life, looks, outside interests, or other characteristics, don’t make a difference and we won’t tolerate discrimination or harassment from anyone who behaves otherwise. We are committed to fair pay, benefits, hours, training, promotion and treatment. We believe in equal pay for equal jobs, and are very proud that, as a result, Hawksmoor does not have a gender pay gap. 100% of service charge goes to people who work in the restaurants, and there are no silly policies making staff accountable for things like breakages or walk-outs.

Be proud of where you work

We hope this sounds like the sort of company you want to be part of; we want people to feel proud of their restaurant, the quality of food and hospitality they offer, the company they work for and the people they work with. If you want to show it off to your friends or family, we’ll give you 50% off food for a table of 2, or for a bigger table if you are bringing your parents or children.

We’re always on the lookout for talented, passionate people, so please do get in touch if you are interested in joining us.
