Get in touch with Elnecot directly to book.

3. Hawksmoor

Pimping up Hawksmoor at Home for a very special lockdown Valentine’s Day, steak lovers can get their hands on the much-loved restaurant’s amazing prime rib for two, which includes champagne, negronis, the steak itself, sticky toffee pudding and all the sides. It’s definitely an indulgent treat at £135 per box, but well worth it for the chance to do something a little different while we wait for restaurants to re-open.
