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.
Excellent food and amazing portion sizes. Nice array of cocktails and fantastic value for money. The food took a long time to come out, but we were told this when we arrived and the staff kept us informed throughout.
Left feeling like a stuffed turkey thanks to the generous portions served. We had the Braai for 2 which tasted amazing. Will definitely be revisiting. Thanks
Fantastic food and the service is superb. Food came out quickly and tasted delicious. Would definitely go back.
What a wonderful evening with fantastic and communicative service. Staff were friendly, inviting and knowledgable. Shame I live so far away otherwise I’d be there every week! Thank you for a great evening, like being back at home in S.Africa.
the food was good, 50% off the bill was great, the waitress was very nice and helpful, it's just a shame the restaurant was empty.
We sat down at 7:30 for our table for four. The place was busy but not overrun. By the time we ordered (about 30 mins after we sat down) they had run out of both prawns and lamb. The restaurant did their best to find alternatives and gave us a free bowl of biltong, but it was very disappointing that 1/2 the skewers were not available. The food was good and value for money, though only because it was half price. If we had paid £40 for the steak we got we would have been quite upset. We would probably go back, but wouldn’t rush back.
Food was good but perhaps a little expensive for portion size. Downstairs needs to be brighter.
Delicious food and wine - fantastic service, our waitress was so helpful and informative!
The steak was really nice even for a medium well steak. It was so nice and juicy. All the food was great. They should add their baked potatoes to the menu though
As we had a 50% Braii the value for money was good but I would not have been happy paying full price. Particularly the cost of £10 for two tiny lamb chops seemed very excessive.
Server was exceptionally attentive and very helpful when navigating dietary needs. Food was great, and lots of it. The only quibble was that it fell short a bit on value for money -- seems a bit outpriced, even for that part of town.
Great service and fantastic meat! Would definitely recommend :)
Lovely place. Delicious meats. Will definitely return
A pleasant, relaxed- but still very clean and pristine place offering South African eateries.
Having tried many so called South African restaurants in London over many years this is the first one where the dishes resemble and taste like the real thing. And to top it all - tender and juicy chops and steak in London! We had a great meal, the service is excellent.
Really great food and service
More selection of beverages
V nice overall. Must say my borewors was raw in the center towards the centre of the wheel but overall the food was excellent! Rum lemon punch nice too. Down voted on the atmosphere as I reckon the place needs a makeover, wall was dirty to be critical. Will definitely come back again and again though. Great food and reasonable price. Keep it up!
The waitress was fantastic, she was so friendly and efficient. The food was amazing!! We will definitely be back !!
Very good but a bit expensive
Buy Castle beer
The food is superb and the wines are likewise good but the wait for the food is super long and annoying.
So much fun and food was great!
Really enjoyable evening with fantastic food and wine. The menu is well varied and the platters are a great options for groups to share.
