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.

The food was great and our server, Todd, was brilliant and helped elevate our experience at Blacklock. The "All In" is great value. I went with three other adults and ordered two portions of the "All In", one of each of the starters and a 400g lamb rump which was the perfect amount of food. Delicious food and great service so I'd 100% recommend to all meat-eaters!

Il posto è carinissimo e il persnale è molto accogliente. La carne è fantastica. I contorni danno un tocco di engish style, sono buonissimi e molto particolari. Per magiare qualcosa di diverso.
I dolci sono fatti in casa, davvero buoni anche se un pò pesanti.
Lo raccomanderei senza esitazione. Noi ci abbiamo passato la notte del 31/12/18. Una bellissima serata.

Good food, fun staff, slightly loud music- but it was good music, so it’s OK. It’s a LOT of meat. A. LOT. OF. MEAT. The pork chops were amazing, and the beef, with garlic marrow sauce. Definitely recommend. Also an extremely reasonable price for what you get.

Nice enough food but nothing really special, chips were real nice
Nice enough place to sit but rather boring against similar establishments
Staff were real nice and seemed to be on top of a really busy night.
Acoustics need much work as it’s like sitting in a drum .... impossible to hold a reasonable conversation,
Could be great with a bit more attention and thought but seems they have got so far and stopped.

Love this place however asked for no pork on shared platter so was expecting more beef as a replacement as usual and got pork!

My advise, repeat yourself twice if you need something specific to make sure you're heard.

Other than that - Great place and great service.

Came here on a Monday night and it was super busy, hence it was very loud in the restaurant, but to be expected as it was the week running up to Xmas. Despite how busy it was, our table was very well looked after by the staff from the moment we stepped in to the moment we left. The food was amazing as usual - we had the porterhouse and the 'all in' with some chips and veggies.

Blacklock is one of my favourite places to eat the food is so good, the service always top notch and very reasonable this place knocks spots of other much more expensive steak restaurants! Keep up the good work I’ll be back in the new year!

Fantastic food and great quality, highly recommended for meat lovers. Went on a Monday - slight discount on bigger cuts of meat was a bonus. Had the lamb Barnsley as recommended by server and it was perfect. If you fancy something a bit different after dinner, Sky Garden is right next door as well.

Massively disappointing. Bleeding heart is so much better. Food fine but casual service; casual everything; very noisy. Don’t understand why the reviews are so good - there are much better places about for good steak.

The steak was delicious, but it took almost 40 minutes to come and was overpriced compared to the "all in" offer they run. I like the place a lot, but I'll be sticking to the "all in" in future, which usually arrives in 10-15 minutes!
