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.

It's a nice place for drinks /dinner. It would be nice if they had more table for outdoor seating.

Lovely cocktails (made it for happy hour). The steak was so delicious - the best I have eaten in years. I also had a complimentary pecan pie for my birthday which was a very nice touch. Thank you!

During Covid so quiet and gave the staff ample opportunity to serve. Thought the prices were extravagant for what was served but I would go again.

Steak was lovely , a nice piece of steak well cooked. Came with fries and a side salad which wouldn’t be my personal preference.... I think homemade chips and veggies are a better option with a nice steak. The peppercorn sauce was delicious as was the chocolate fondant dessert and the bottle of Malbec we ordered. ( so nice we ordered an extra carafe) . Rounded the meal off with an Irish coffee which was probably the best we’d had in a long time. Staff where friendly and efficient....all in all an excellent experience.

There was really nothing out of this world with the food
Chips - basic, you’ll get the same quality chips from a peri peri takeaway
Salad - REALLY simple, no dressing, the walnuts, there is really no point of them if they’re being put on the salad whole, I thought they’d at least be ground a little bit
Steak - nothing to come for really, I usually have my steak blue, but I went for a ribeye, so went for medium rare
The flavour of the beef was good, the char on the steak wasn’t really great, the steak didn’t appear seasoned
The cocktails were nice, so was the merlot! Easy to drink
We didn’t stay for dessert, as we couldn’t hear the choices as a train went over as she was telling us
Be useful if the desserts are written down

Celebrating my sons 16th birthday. Covid safe , well organised, clean tables, staff wearing visors so the communication isn’t lost. Food was great understandably from a limited menu. Very loud table near us with the guy standing up and shouting over the screen to another guy on another table ( there will always be one). No complaints whatsoever and would go again.

Wonderful steak, great service and good selection of wines. The beers were all very 3 expensive from what is a relatively standard selection. £5.50 for a small bottle of Staropramen isn't on.

We were made to feel very safe & welcome & every member of staff was so friendly. The atmosphere was great with just enough buzz but not so loud you couldn’t hold a conversation. Food was lovely, particularly the king prawns & the pecan pie was divine! So nice to see the restaurant open again & we hope it’s well supported.

Went for Saturday lunch in the midst of COVID-19 times - really impressed with how Black and Blue are managing social distancing and cleanliness. Staff were very friendly and professional and steaks were as scrummy as always We opted to sit inside and most diners were outside so not the usual buzz and noise levels inside. However it didn’t feel like we were eating alone as glass walls bring the outside in and we could watch all the “action” in the market. Top marks to Black and Blue and also to Borough Market for how they have coped with these unusual times and circumstances.

Lovely atmosphere. Tables are well spaced out and social distancing observed. Felt a bit rushed to order food but food was lovely. I ordered a rump steak - medium and it was cooked perfectly.
Good choice of cocktails. Would have liked to have seen more choice for dessert.

Delightful meal in the heart of Borough Market and in a very unusual location under one of the railway arches. Service very prompt and courteous, and food excellent. We sat outside until it became too cold and moved inside for coffee. Inside or out, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and unreservedly recommend this restaurant.

This place is 2nd to none, I come here every year for my birthday, and am never disappointed. Amazing food, and our waitress went the extra mile to make sure we had a 5 star service (forgot her name, blonde hair and been there 4 years)
Was impressed at the social distancing measures too, the burgers are the best in the UK, and I know my burgers!
