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 Bookings for dinner from 5-10.30pm (Last orders are 30 minutes before closing time) Saturday and Sunday - Closed.

It was my husbands birthday and I thought I would treat him as he had never been to Blacklock before. I couldn't have asked for better service. The food was amazing and the staff were so kind. They lit a candle on his dessert and snag happy birthday to him. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much

Great food and service, a bit surprised by the portion size for the all in on the menu as we expected a bit more but the unlimited cheesecake was extraordinary and definitely great value for money

Really crap. The lamb somehow managed to taste fishy, and the beef tasted off. Wine was expensive and not very nice. Service was pretty poor as well - wouldn’t recommend to anyone and wouldn’t go back.

Thoroughly enjoyed a mid week lunch here. The service was attentive and friendly and the food was very satisfying. Piles of delicious cooked meat on top of charred bread to soak up all those lovely juices! If you haven't been and you're a love of all things meat... go!

The steak was so tender and so moist that we both said afterwards we can’t remember ever having a better steak, and we have been to many of the great steak restaurants in London. We also tried the skinny chops which all delicious but the Lamb was our favourite with the little pot of green herby sauce. I loved the classic 70’s -90’s top hits that were playing in the background. Cocktails are £5 each and the prosecco one delicious. Service was excellent and the staff are very friendly. The minute we walked down the stairs we were greeted with such warmth I felt like a regular but this was in fact my first visit (07/01/2020) We mentioned it was my partners Birthday so the staff made a special effort to wish him a happy birthday and pop a candle into his cheesecake desert which was really yummy.
It's trendy/casual dinning experience with excellent food I can't fault it.

We ordered a porterhouse of 700g to share for 2 people. The steak was grilled perfectly with charred on the outside and juicy inside.
Very good value for money. Definitely would come back again!

Blacklock was really amazing. Food was great. The best part of our experience was our waiter, Sebby. He really looked after us and treated us like royal subjects. Give that man a raise!!!

Bloody amazing as always - food is awesome and service is fantastic- attentive but not in your face annoying. If you go you MUST have the cheesecake for dessert, I don’t do desserts but absolutely adore this. Take clients here and they all become gams cannot recommend highly enough

I love BlackLock and normally take my wife to the Soho restaurant and never had a reason to even think anything but good things about eating there but there was 4 of us with each paying £20 for the all in this time at the City restaurant and the plate of meat that came up was miserly. Not enough for 2 let alone 4. We queried it and was told definitely enough there for 4 people. Poor show, who are they kidding albeit we couldn’t fault the taste, the service etc.
Soho for me next time I’m afraid

Excellent food and the All In deal is great value. All the waiters were excellent and very attentive but not overbearing which was great. The only slight downside is that it was quite loud.
