Steak
We believe that to produce the best food, you should work with all your suppliers on a close and personal basis. We acquired our own butchers, Jefferies in Kingston, so that we could control our meat all the way from the abattoir to the table. This helps ensure that our steaks and handmade burgers are of the highest quality.



In 1999, the boys decided that they wanted to bring a high-street, high-quality steak concept to London, Black & Blue and the first modern American steakhouse in the capital, was born.

Went with a group of 5, were given a great table, service was attentive without being intrusive, we really felt welcome. The food was simple but good, and definitely hit the spot. Prices weren’t cheap but good value/what you expect in Borough Market. Would definitely go back

Very tasty steak, I think non-steak dishes were good but the skill quality certainly is in the steak

Nice corner table outside on a scorching day. Service was OK if a little slow considering it had just opened and there weren't many diners. Had to send the pitta bread back as it was mouldy - promptly and apologetically replaced. Otherwise a nice meal - staks properly cooked - everyone one got their requirements.

Lunch for three of us went very well. We were sat where we wanted, the service was great as was the food. Wine was just ok but we did chose from the lower end of the list!
all in all a great lunchtime experience - our second visit didn't disappoint. Would definitely return.

chicken wing starter was super fat, overly deep fried, hardly any meat on them.

garlic butter with the king prawns had curdled.

neither should have passed through the kitchen door.

The restaurant chain was recommended by a friend so I booked a lunchtime reservation. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Once we sat down waitress didn’t give us a chance to even look at the menu and she pressured us to order drinks ASAP.

Food menu was limited and expensive. We ordered the prawns and chicken wings. Both options were £7 each and not appetising.

Main course we ordered the burger and pava steak. Burger was standard served with chips and steak was standard also.

Overall, I have been to much better restaurants with better food and value for money. Too expensive and not impressive at all....

Our family of four wanted a nice lunch near Borough Market and we found just that at Black & Blue. Our children have food allergies and all was handled properly and with care. Our service from the greeting to the table was friendly and welcoming. The location is also perfect to the Market. Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed a meal with friends here! Service was great and the staff were very polite and attentive. The food was superb, I can highly recommend the pave rump steak with bearnaise sauce! They have a great choice of drinks too and I'm looking forward to going back to try more of the food from their great choices on the menu.

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions, but on this occasion was very disappointed. The menu has been reduced due to covid so you would think that having a smaller menu would mean the food would be outstanding, but it wasn't. The food ordered wasn't correct & when sorted was not as great as once was. Will not rush back.

Following the long lockdown, our visit to Black & Blue was a real treat. The staff were friendly and welcoming with attentive service.
The steaks were good and the wine list reasonable.
Desserts were a little disappointing with limited choice, but all in all a lovely evening.
We will return.
