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 food and excellent attention and service - thank you Jana.
Wine very expensive! Poor choice of beer (no South African!). Dessert was really poor and espresso ice cream a rip off price for portion given. Restaurant smelled like fire smoke-need better extraction! The only great think was the main. Great meat!
The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our large (and somewhat indecisive) group. Very grateful for the top service. Food could have been a little hotter. But otherwise perfect night.
Very tasty and excellent, prompt service.
Brilliant service, incredible food and great atmosphere. Highly recommended. It’s worth a trip for the pork belly alone.
We had our team Xmas party downstairs for 18 people (11th Dec 2018). Great night, great food, great wine, hats off to Sam especially who was a top notch host, organised everything and looked after us.
Really friendly staff, great food and value for money!
Food was good but poor service and hefty service charge added for actually a rather poor service. 40 minute wait for food when we had pre ordered.
Food is so delicious. But it is on the pricey side for what you get.
Food was amazing, lovely restaurant.
Great food, great service! Will be back soon!
Lovely dinner thanks
Great Place but a bit loud , nice people good service and MEAT MEAT MEAT
Great dinner with my work colleagues, including free punches to start the night!
Fantastic! Had such a lovely lunch. Etienne and the hostess were so helpful. They helped the luncheon run smoothly and made the day very easy. The food was fantastic and I will definitely be coming again. Thank you team!
We had a really great time. The food was amazing. The curry flavour was spot on, just like home! We were a large table of 12 and the waitress did a sterling job even when some of the guests gave her a hard time! Thank you for the incredible meal and we will see you again.
As a Zimbabwean, this was as authentic as they come in England. Very pleased with the place and pricing.
Great time waitress was great
Amazing food! Ordered the big braai. Highly recommend!
Excellent atmosphere, food and service.
What a treat, made me feel like I was back in Joburg at a bring and braai! Great place to host the clients I was with. Highly recommended!
Incredibly tasty food and a great atmosphere. Service was a bit slow but good nonetheless.
Enjoyable experience - lacking on options for vegetarians.
Really great service and food!
I'd come back. Nice ambience and good food overall. Wine selection was also good
