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.

Sometimes it’s all about the food and sometimes about the atmosphere Blacklock is both but not that fussy way that no one wants when eating all of the meat

Female staff tend to be very friendly. I cannot always say the same for the male staff. Maybe their sense of humour was not on-point?

Good service, but the menu was incomplete. Staff offered other alternatives but never talked about prices so when the bill came we were a bit shocked. Food quality was not the best, I am from Argentina so I know good meat, unfortunately I didn’t get good meat there!

First time at their city branch and it's just the same quality consistency at their other branches. The staff are exceptional and always make you feel welcome and there to help and provide advice. The food of course is mouthwatering. If you're a fan of meat you cannot go wrong with any of your choices and always go for a dessert!!!

An extremely gratifying experience with food prepared just right! We had the sharing chop dish for a taste of most things. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable without being patronising. The ambience was just right; cleanliness, etc at this time very good.

We were looked after so well. The staff were so busy but always incredibly attentive, kind, observant and in great spirits. They really do have something about them ( even the chefs are cheery and give a smile as you pass, even though they are doing a million things) The food really was outstanding!!!!...and the cocktails were delicious. I do find the restaurant quite loud, but perhaps I’m getting old. Thank you Lesley at the bar for introducing us to the delicious cheesecake! (I’ve never made it to dessert before). Thanks all for looking after us so well and giving us a top notch Friday evening. xx

Great experience from start to finish. Wonderful food and excellent service. The Porterhouse was to die for, the sides were scrumptious (didn't think a pear salad could be so delicious), and the bread and butter pudding was just perfect. All the staff were so nice and very attentive (filling up our water glasses). Not the first time I've been and definitely won't be the last. Everyone should go :)

We celebrated our friends’ engagement at Blacklock and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The staff went to such length to make sure we had the best time and the food was Devine. I’ll absolutely be recommending it to everyone we know.

Good restaurant serving good grilled meat. Not so easy to find for a tourist for the restaurant is situated below street level.
Service is great. Prices in line with the food.
