About Hammer & Tongs
Inspired by South African braai, Hammer & Tongs in Clerkenwell specialises in cuts of juicy, tender meats, served in a casual, warm and friendly restaurant. Meats are seasoned and marinated with worldly spices and herbs, and only the best available seasonal ingredients make it onto the Hammer & Tongs menu. Guests can complement their menu choices with a succinct wine list featuring some of South Africa's finest producers, a cocktail list which features the signature Driftwood Old Fashioned, and craft beer.
Great nite - true South African- just like home
Food and service excellent
Great night out dessert was a triple A*
Braaibroodjies and malva pudding hit the spot
Keanu was the best
good desserts ran out of ribeye :(
Loved broccoli, and dirty braai. Happy to discover that sheep chops did not taste too strongly of mutton and closer to lamb chops in terms of flavor. Wanted to order the ribeye but disappointed they were sold out. You can't re-produce their food in a domestic kitchen unless you have a wood burning smoker in your garden.
Amazing food, amazing experience. Thank you
Amazing food. We ordered the biggest dish on the menu as two ladies. Best decision ever
Fantastic loved the braai! It would be good to see additional dishes on the menu like chakalaka etc
Amazing food and great service. Also received half price on all food so very happy.
The food here was incredible and the wine was just as good! Can't recommend highly enough.
Had not had braai before, and really enjoyed it. Great quality for all the meat, and enjoyed the sharing platter. Nice restaurant, with an upstairs and downstairs area. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Just amazing! This is our new favourite restaurant in London! Thank you all!!!
Food took over an hour to come, at 50% discount I felt the meal was fairly priced. At the full price I wouldn't return unless the portions were increased significantly.
Small cafe like restaurant, felt like you were sitting on top of each other. Food was ok, without the discount I wouldn't pay full price the portions.
Delicious food and a very kind service
Fantastic food, lovely staff!
Great food and great service
We love coming here. We love the braai platters and you have one of the best Melva puddings. It was a table of 8 so your August discount ended the evening on a high note.
Took 1.5 hours to get any food on the table. All wine bottles under £40 were sold out. Food was average. Sent back a dish as it was cooked inconsistently. Restaurant was highly understaffed but the girls serving were extremely sweet and the saving grace on our wedding anniversary meal which we booked here in an attempt to reminsce our days in South Africa. Would not recommend.
Amazing steak!! Their food food was amazing!
We went on a Saturday lunchtime (3rd August 2019). Table for four. We were recommended by the waitress the full sharing platter for 3-4 people at £115. Boy was it delicious and plentiful.... it covered both starter and main. The T bone at medium to rare was cooked to perfection, as was the sausage, pork, prawns and fish. The vegetables and side salads had a slight ‘pickled’ taste and a perfect contrast to the meats and fish. The malve pudding was a real surprise! The waitress was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Will go again, but make sure we haven’t eaten for a few days prior!
The only positive was the food. Amazing! The service though was awful. We were a party of eight that had reserved in advance. We waited one hour and fifteen minutes for our orders and when we asked how much longer one waiter said” you knew it would be busy tonight and it’s not my problem, I don’t work here I’m just helping” We still had to pay for the “service” because it was added to the bill.
