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.

We booked on a whim, following an afternoon at the Sky Garden.
The food was incredibly delicious.
The service was amazingly attentive, without being overbearing.
Would highly recommend!

Cheesecake was to die for and the roast was one of the best I’ve had!

We had a reservation and came early In the hope to have a table sooner.
As no tables were available we decided to wait at the bar. 2 couples came in the meantime, one with no booking and another one who had a reservation at the same time as us and who also came earlier. Both couples got a table before us (despite us being at the bar for 30 minutes).
The service was very slow, we wanted to order desserts but no one ever came to take our order so we left.
The food was very nice but improvements can be made

A little noisy for my taste but that is a reflection of its justified popularity, I guess! Food arrived very promptly and was a good as ever.

I can honestly say it was the best roast dinner I have eaten at a restaurant! Service was great, staff were really friendly. Food was delicious. All 3 of us had the all in roast with extra sides of green beans and cauli cheese. We had the bread and butter pudding with custard for pud. It was all yummy! Definitely recommending to all my friends!

A vibrant, buzzing atmosphere for a Sunday roast with a real mix of clientele the only downside being the 'discretionary' 12.5% surcharge which I find annoying. I have no issue with paying a tip but would rather it was my choice as to if and how much.

Best roast in London! Meat was cooked to perfection and the vegetables/trimmings were delicious! I found the restaurant really accommodating to my gluten free requirements as well. Thank you!

Booked a candlelit dinner for me and my partners 5th year anniversary. Absolutely blown away by the quality of the customer service, we were welcomed enthusiastically and given the best seats in the house. Soon after we were brought over 2 glasses of celebratory champagne on the house!
We ordered a porterhouse to share, served at a perfect medium rare. Alongside we had beef dripping chips (to die for) and 2 delicious lamb cutlets. To finish we opted for the New York cheesecake which was fantastic ending to a brilliant meal. Overall one of the best restaurant experiences we've had and we will definitely be coming back soon!

This restaurant was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Service great, main course selection for meat lovers was great. Only disappointment for us was the variety of starters/desserts. We felt this could do with expanding. My 18 year old foodie son who loves meat felt the ribeye he had here was his best steak ever.

Very Meat orientated - not one for Veggies .. though there are 3 vegetarian dishes on the menu. very busy noisy atmosphere .. Fun .. good beer selection though on the day there was no Lager .. the sharing plate is good .. a great big pile of meat to tuck into with interesting sides and sauces
