What they say:

What happens when you combine one of London’s favourite steak joints with the world-class produce of Scotland? Hawksmoor in Edinburgh, hopefully. This super-steak restaurant is what’s being promised from the London brand, setting up shop in the city after opening six venues in the capital and one in Manchester. And they aren’t arriving quietly: the restaurant will sit in the art deco-styled former Royal Bank of Scotland Hall, to serve up to 170 covers.

What we say:

The main event is steak at Hawksmoor and their offerings don’t disappoint. Whether you want to tuck into chateaubriand or prime rib bought by the 100g or classic cuts like filet, rump and sirloin, they’ve got it – and they’ll be supplied with Scottish produce to keep that high quality. You can also expect prime beef from their Sunday Roast, with rump or prime rib on offer, or if you’re more a surf guy/gal, then you can tuck into dishes like lobster and salmon. You can wash it all down with an extensive cocktail list, beers and wine.
