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.

Excellent food and service. I’ve been to Blacklock 3 times now and would highly recommend. Have tried a few different things but the combo paired with a porterhouse was my favourite so far.

I do have a great experience. However you didn’t have the rib-eyes, but the rum stake was a good replacement.
Service was amazing, the team is great and fast.
I definitely will come back again.

Very disappointed with the quality of meat. A 56 pound prime rib should at least be tender. Both meat and sides were too salty. So overall food experience not impressive. That in combi with setting next to the kitchen (smell and light). Many other grill restaurant I would prefer instead. Service was good however.

110% the blacklock City team went above and beyond to make a special birthday even more special. I knew the food would be amazing as I have been there before, but as a newly converted pescatarian they did a special dish for me that was heaven!!! (This is on special request, but not to put you off, just ask in advance)
The team were so polite and even adorned a cocktail with candles with a little ‘happy birthday to you!’ To finish the meal.

Could not be happier with the evening, and it was money well spent! Even when the bill came, I thought it would cost double what it did! Amazing quality meat, and even as a fussy eater, I was more than happy to support the companies philosophy with there meat supplier for my boyfriends birthday.

We even got an extra special birthday present to take away!

Thank you so much to the chefs and to the team looking after us! We will be ranting and raving about you all for a long time!

Non-pretentious place which delivers great food at a reasonable price. Service is just fantastic without being 'in-your-face', delivered by authentic staff.
Good wine list but it may help if they recommend bottles as opposed to by the glass as you will want to stay there longer than you expected and BTG prices soon mount up!

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

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!!).
