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:

This place in unbelievable, the food is incredible and the prices are brilliant across the food and drink menu! Go for the “All In” the stack of meat might look intimidating but you get a great variation of the different meats available! Ignore how full you are feeling order the cheesecake, you won’t be disappointed!

Meaty!!!!! My brother discovered this and took the family here, it’s great value and perfectly cooked meat!
My partners dream! Took him and we had the chops platter which is good value and comes with the pre-chop bites (little mouthfuls of delicious)! £5 cocktails and it’s a winner! Lovely atmosphere, easy to find, great staff who keep your water topped up (I love this as you don’t feel pushed to get more alcohol, just to stay hydrated), are friendly and relaxed. It’s a non-pretentious, meat lovers find! Good for any occasion!

Wonderful night, this was my second visit and the food was just as wonderful, and it was lovely that the waiters remembered me from the 4 weeks previously. If you’re not sure about what you’d like to eat the servers are very good and giving advice and convincing you to ‘treat yourself’ but it is worth it.

I have eaten in most steak restaurants in the City. This is one of the best I’ve tried. Great tasting, brilliantly cooked prime rib, genuine service and fantastic value for money. I h e already recommended it to others.

Busy but relaxed atmosphere, friendly service. Food outstanding and plentiful; the grilled lettuce a real and delectable pleasure. A bit loud for real conversation on Friday night because it was so busy, and the music could be more thoughtfully selected for atmosphere and ambiance, but will definitely return.

Uhhhh still dreaming about the chops, they were so GOOD. Chips were outstanding and the cocktails were dangerously addictive. It's my second time at this branch of Blacklock and I will definitely be back. Staff are the nicest most helpful ever too. 100% recommend.

So impressed with Blacklock! The meat is to such a good standard and the atmosphere is lively and fun! I took my mum for her 60th and our waiter made the night - my Mum said it was the best meal out she has had! Thank you for making it so special, we'll be back.

Aside from the noise level, this place is ace. It's a proper old-style chop house. Proper big boy's food and no fish or veggies in sight. Meat cooked to perfection and excellent service. It is very noisy though and you come out with a sore throat from shouting at one another. That said, perhaps I am getting old. Very highly recommended over your Goodmans and Hawksmoors. I gather a new branch is starting in Shoreditch soon and it should do very well.

My new favourite restaurant in London!
Incredible food, amazing service and great value.
We were warmly greeted at the door and despite the restaurant being busy we were given the choice of table from every two-seater available before our waiter sat down and gave us the full low-down on how to order and what's good.
My girlfriend and I had the "all in", which includes all the light bites and skinny chops plus a side, each, for £20 per person! feeling hungry and wanting to try everything we also ordered all three starters. For drinks we got a cocktail each and a bottle of wine. The courgette with blue cheese and the barbecued baby gems were intensely flavoured and went well with the perfectly cooked meat. Even as we were struggling to finish all the food, every mouthful was still a joy to eat!
To top it off, our waiter offered us free cheesecake to finish! We gratefully declined as we were both stuffed so he had it packaged for us to take home with us!
The whole experience came to £110, including a generous tip to the waiter.
I have already recommended to friends and family and will definitely be back.

Can't recommend highly enough. Visited Blacklock for my dad's birthday and were very well looked after. The food is phenomenally good and fantastic value for money. The group are still talking about how good the white chocolate cheese cake was. Will definitely be returning.
