Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old electricity substation on the site of London"s oldest meat market. We take the best meat in the country from the award-winning farmer and butcher Philip Warren in Cornwall. We cook chops simply over our real charcoal grill with a little help from vintage Blacklock irons and serve it all up alongside cocktails for a fiver and wine on tap in our atmospheric subterranean chop mecca.

Bookings:
Monday - Friday
Bookings for lunch from 12-3pm

Excellent service, delicious food. Great experience while on holiday in London. Would come back from the USA for this restaurant and their lamb and the sides.

The service was very good. I really enjoyed the steak and the chops and the house red was very good for the price.
Also with £5 old fashioned you can't go wrong.
Saying that it was slightly more expensive that I would have liked but it's London I suppose.

Very good all round. Service was very attentive.
Atmosphere good but quite noisy.
Did not feel the menus was all that clear from a pricing standpoint. Especially when converting grams to ounces.
Nevertheless would not stop me highly recommending the restaurant to anybody

My partner and I came to your restaurant after work and it was such a delight! We couldn’t get enough of the helpful staff and service that went above and beyond. Normally, being lactose intolerant- I have to decipher some allergy form for all the dishes. Not the case here, your waitress’ were incredibly insightful and knowledgeable about the dishes to select- it was such a personal experience we’ve both said we’ll come back and sing your praises to our friends. She even catered the menu so that I wouldn’t have to have the flatbread that contained dairy- it was such special treatment.

The food was also delicious- succulent and perfect! I cannot fault anything, except maybe we should have ordered more to try everything! We will definitely be coming back with more friends to sincerely enjoy the beautiful atmosphere you guys have all created.

Hats off to you all. You all should be super proud!

Group of friends get to get. Got the sharing platter and a side each which was so yummy. Everyone was happy with the food and the puddings were good. The wine was from their personal collection and went down incredibly well with the food. Would recommend! Great atmosphere for a get together

Great time is an understatement. We love it there and last night was no exception. The staff was wonderful, fun and attentive. I wish I could remember their names, but there was a bearded gentleman from Canada, a bald and bearded very tall man and a blond luggage taker at the door/trolley with drinks. The three of them truly added humor to our evening and the five of us at the table had a blast.

This dinner was to thank the 4 people for their recent work. They loved the experience and it truly made this visit to London a very fun time.

I have always found high standards for fun that ensure the customer always enjoy themselves!

Great cocktails, buzzy vibe and a pile of chops to share - so far so very Good! Add smart veggy sides - charred beetroot, kale and parmesan & top off with a homemade white choc cheescake. Quite loud for quiet conversations but great fun and superb service.

Food was great but our waiter was quite rude! Would have taken off the service charge but he seemed pretty argumentative and I couldn't face the argument that would ensue. A shame.

I love blacklock but I do think they rush you out and 1.5 hours for 4 people when your table is at 5.45pm is not enough in my opinion - should be 2 hours

Went for dinner as a special event after just a general search of venues in London. Booked a table for 3 (although ended up being just two of us) we were completely overwhelmed with the choices/options so one of the waiters was exceptionally helpful and with our approval ordered for us.
It was the perfect selection and we were extremely happy with the options the food was delicious, the staff wonderful and the drinks were perfect!
The manager also touched base at tables throughout the night and was very friendly and made the whole atmosphere and environment very accessible and enjoyable (a great playlist as well) would 100% recommend and go again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our all in chop lunch, great food, service and atmosphere! Outstanding value for money.

The incessant topping up of wine and water glasses by the waiting staff was a bit irritating, however, all the staff were cheerful, welcoming and enthusiastic - we will be back.

Loved our meal here - the meat is fantastic quality and cooked perfectly. Great service from everyone we encountered.
Don't miss the pre chop bites or the veg sides as these are excellent. Enjoyed our seating with a kitchen view too. Great value although market price Monday could be a little clearer - it wasn't all chops, just the steaks.
