UPDATE 23rd August – Because there are more rail strikes, this offer will be back on 26th August, 1st and 2nd September from noon to 6pm.

There are few upsides to strikes on the railways, but one is that meaty restaurant Hawksmoor is offering meals for £15 when the rail or tube is on strike.

The offer is valid in their restaurants between Monday to Saturday from noon to 6pm, and is only for their steak & frites (without bone marrow) meal. Exact opening hours vary slightly by restaurant, so you should check when booking.

(c) Hawksmoor

The offer is valid from 20th to 31st July 2023 and after that, for the foreseeable future, during rail & tube strike days.

To redeem this offer, write “Strike Steak” in the special request box when booking online or quote this phrase to the host when calling the restaurant or upon arrival. Walk-ins accepted.

Steak and Frites shows up on their lunch menus, and usually costs £25.

In London, they have branches at:

  • Canary Wharf (two branches)
  • Piccadilly Circus
  • London Bridge
  • Moorgate
  • Knightsbridge
  • Seven Dials
  • Spitalfields

You can make a booking here.

Hawksmoor says that they won’t make any money out of the deal, but it should help to keep their restaurants and staff busy when they might otherwise be too quiet due to the strikes.


Steak & Frites is served without bone marrow. Fillet, tail and/or any sides are charged extra. Offer can be used alongside BYO Mondays and Amex promotions. The offer is not valid with any other promotions.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
