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 5-11.00pm

Saturday and Sunday - Closed.

Good meat, well cooked, at prices that are not silly, backed with great service. What’s not to love.

Meat, more meat and more meat, with some token vegetables, noise leave is huge during busy periods,
wine priced at London City prices. £52 for a 650g Porterhouse !

Really impressed - I made a mistake in the booking but they found us a table promptly anyway... Food was excellent, as was the service. Been meaning to try this place out for a while but really glad I finally made it! The "All In" was actually really good value.

I absolutely love this place. Have eaten at various Blacklocks across London and am still undecided to which one is best, because they're all so good. The level of service is of such high quality too. It's impossible to leave this place without hainvg a huge grin on your face!

This was a wonderful experience from the outset. I contacted the team to advise of an unusual allergen to see if we could be accommodated. I had a swift and helpful response to my query. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome and the host ran through and confirmed all details again to reassure us.

I couldn’t recommend more. We will definitely be returning again soon . Thank you

What a great place tucked away. Everything was great. Steak was some of the best I have had. Not a huge space so quite crowded and loud but adds to the buzz.

Love this place! Usually have the ‘All In’ but tried the rump cap this time and it was spot on (obviously followed by their amazing cheesecake because you can’t go there and not have it!!).

Fantastic evening with excellent service from all staff. Bar staff, waiters, management, everyone was good humored, incredibly helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a great evening.
The food was very good. The sharing plate of chops was excellent, but the star of the show was the Prime Rib Big Chop. Amazing piece of meat, cooked to perfection.
The cocktails were superb and great value, there are loads of wines "on tap" as well as a wine list with a fairly good range catering for all tastes and budgets.
Will definitely be back.

Absolutely loved this place. As long as you like meat.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
The food tastes amazing, and is really good value. £20 per head for a sharing platter with starters and sides for the quality of food is excellent value.
I'm going back.
Round of applause for the chefs.

This is the second time I have visited Blacklock and I have to say it is superb. Probably not one for non meat eaters but if you are a carnivore then this is well worth a try. Great food with friendly and knowledgeable staff.
