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.

The steak was good rather than excellent, certainly not as good as I have had there before for some reason. Great service as always and helpful staff.

Great meat selection in a typical chop house environment.
Servers had a tendency to try and ‘up sell’ quantities.

My dad and I had the best meal we’ve ever had. The meat was cooked more perfectly than you can imagine. So tender and full of meaty flavour. The beef dripping chips tasted like heaven in a bowl. The service was super friendly and attentive. I cannot fault a single thing. I’ll be back with many more people.

We went at lunch time and went for the All In - which turned out to be a great choice.
We'll be going back as soon as we can. Loved it.

A fantastic first experience at Blacklock.

The restaurant were all out of the steaks we originally ordered so we opted for a more expensive option with out waiter kindly offering to knock off the price of our sides. He ended up throwing in an extra one and substituted our espressos at the end of our meal with a coffee cocktail.

The food was excellent, the service outstanding and we will definitely be back.

Great restaurant, good quality food, expertly cooked. If you want a meat fest containing something other than steak, this is the place to go. Simple and small menu but everything we had was done well. Will definately be going back.

This was my second visit and it seems the word is out, as it was a lot busier this time! As a result it was noisy (downstairs, small and crowded) and the service was a little slow. The latter of these was more of an issue as 2 of the 3 in our party were under time constraints that meant we literally had to eat and run! Saying that the staff certainly did their best and were friendly and courteous.

We had the mixed platter for 3 and when the food arrived it was delicious, although the sides seemed to be more for 2 than 3.

Will definitely go back for the food alone, but will do this when I have a little more time to spare.

This was a return visit for 4 and we tried the 'All In' option which was very good and excellent value.
Service was good, with the timely arrival of food, but it was a bit hard to get the attention of the staff in between delivery of dishes. We shared desserts and the white chocolate cheesecake and the bread and butter pudding were both unexpectedly light and definitely outstanding.

I liked the decor of this restaurant with the exposed brick walls. We came on a eighties night and loved the music and the staffs 80s outfits. Our water was very attentative and the food was very tasty. I would have liked bigger vegetable portions but overall it was good value.

We were recommended by the waiter to get the "all-in" after trying to decide what was what in this mess of food we left it all and went elsewhere to eat. The belly of the pork is not my thing, there was mostly pork in this savage-style eating, kinda disappointed because we clearly needed help ordering and were not given any, I actually asked "what are they eating" next to us and ours looked nothing like that. But the appetizers they brought prior to the meat were wonderful and tasty. Would never order that again.
