Hawksmoor to open Manchester restaurant in 2015

Steak restaurant group Hawksmoor is to open a restaurant in Manchester next year, having signed a lease in the Courthouse building near Spinningfields.

It will be the first restaurant outside of London for the group, which was founded by Will Beckett and Huw Gott in 2003.

As with its other restaurants, all the meat will be sourced from the Ginger Pig in Yorkshire.

Speaking about the new launch, Beckett said: "We've been coming up to Manchester for a few years now, and in that time have really enjoyed the bars and restaurants up here, and we've been lucky to meet people like Tim [Bacon] and Jeremy [Roberts] from Living Ventures and Beau from Almost Famous, and they've raved about the city."

Hawksmoor Manchester will be opening in the Courthouse, 184-186 Deansgate, which was originally built in the late Victorian era by the Office of Woods and Forests.

Gott said: "We love opening restaurants in heritage buildings, and the Courthouse is a beautiful late Victorian building. I hope we can do something there that does it justice. We always try to adapt what we do to the local area, and we'll be aiming to do something Manchester can be proud of."

The company, which last year sold a minority stake in the business to Graphite Capital, is also set to open a new restaurant in London's Knightsbridge called Frankie's Bar & Grill later this year.
