About Blacklock

Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old brothel, 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. On Sundays we serve a Sunday Roast almost as good as Mum's.

Definitely still my favourite place for dinner in London. Booked for 6 then realised at the last moment I hadn’t included myself (doh)! Restaurant happily fitted us all in even though it was a squeeze. Our server was fantastic, she suggested a change to our original selection which worked really well. She even came and sang happy birthday! Love this place! Food, atmosphere and staff all FANTASTIC!

Third time I've lunched here in the last three months. Always have the 'All In'. It is excellent. I'll never tire of it. Service is fantastic, food lovely, huge portions for very reasonable prices. The only thing I'd question is the need for pretty loud middle-of-the-road disco songs to be playing all the time. Not outrageously loud. But loud enough to need to make an effort to talk over. I guess the brick/metal environment may be a bit harsh, sound-wise, without music. But it's literally my only quibble over the place. I love it, and will be back again soon.

The lamb was absolutely lovely for Sunday lunch, the beef less so. A table near us had the 'all in' (beef, lamb and pork) for about ten people which came on one huge plate: great food theatre, but do you really want pork with your lamb? The main drawback is the restaurant is in a basement, small, noisy and very cramped when packed for Sunday lunch. Overall it's a good Sunday lunch, but maybe not a place to go if you want a relaxing leisurely experience.

As always the food and service in Blacklock was excellent. Ambience would normally get 5/5 but they had a issue with the ventilation system so it was a little bit smokey. However what was impressive was that the manager was doing every in his power to get it sorted and by the time we left the smoke had cleared. The service was exceptional despite this slight issue and the staff apologised but did not moan. Thanks for another great lunch.

Excellent service and ambience in the blacklock. Really enjoyed our visit here, ideal for a pre-theatre meal as it sits in the heart of soho. Fantastic quality food, simple and exceptionally tasty. Not one for vegetarians but if you enjoy well cooked, excellent cuts of meat then you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be going back

The grill work was spectacular. Meat was local and flavorful. The sides (gem with Anchovy) stood out. Cocktails exquisite, and Chris’ project - limoncello, and clemencello, were inventive, satisfying, and marked by his craft and enthusiasm. I’m enthusiastic about this spot in Soho, steeped in history. The Sunday Roast sounds epic. I can only imagine what the oak fire and smoke does to large cuts of beef. I will be back, and recommend others do the same.

The food and service were excellent. Having mentioned that we were celebrating a friend's promotion, the guys at Blacklock really helped with the celebrations. Everything from the "bites" to the main meat event was just incredible.

I would highly recommend the marrow and garlic sauce, I myself not a lover of bone marrow but the sauce was just WOW!!

Even for a quick bite we had a fantastic meal. We did not do the All in deal as we did not fancy the starters but I may do next time.

The meat and sides are fantastic and highly recommend the lamb cutlet and sweet potato side.

The food at Blacklock was amazing. And the service staff is very kind, attentive and upbeat. The drinks were tasty, and the sharing platter portions were just right for a double date. They even held a table for us after we missed our reservation by 30 minutes after getting delayed in the tube Friday night. The restaurant was another plus to our fab day!

Marcel and his team are very professional and accommodating with great prompt service.
Excellent simple menu with simple food with no fancy tricks we love the fact you can choose how many pieces of meat you’d want to eat ! (Eg they charge a very reasonable price per chop,loin,steak etc.
Starters are from £1 and are delicious delights that you can pop in your mouth mmmmmmm !
Best of all is the scrumptious dessert last time it was a big piece of white chocolate cheesecake wit fresh cream mmmmmmmm ! To die for !!!
Where have you been all our lives Black Lock.

Pretty much faultless. The service was excellent from the moment I arrived. Food was incredible - go for the prime rib if your budget can stretch - and an 'all in' as a starter between 3 of us was plenty. Great beer selection and very well priced cocktails - the negroni was sublime and old fashioned up there with the best I've had - both a fiver! Such a cool vibe in there as well - a gorgeously decorated underground spot with great music and an easy going crowd. Loved it and will be back!
