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.

I've been here a couple of times now, and took a good friend for a meaty treat. At first, being a Sunday, I didn't realise that the full menu wasn't on offer, just roasts which I was a little disappointed about...however my disappointment quickly disappeared after a couple of excellent vanilla stouts, some pigs head on toast starters and one of(if not THE) best Sunday roast I've ever eaten. Order all of the sides, they don't disappoint as they add a touch of decadence to beautifully prepared veg and outstanding pink, juicy meat. Fast becoming my favourite meat restaurant anywhere. Fantastic.

We booked a table of 11 and they could not have been more accommodating. Friendly staff, helpful suggestions on food & drink and exquisite food. Everyone had a great time and I would recommend it heartily. A great experience all round.

Loved it, if you like meat, this is for you. Beautiful piece of beef prepared and cooked to perfection. Simple, yet Imaginative sides paired nicely with the beef to make this a top notch eating experience. Service was great, restaurant was cool, price, well it's London and it was pricey but worth it.

Excellent food, attentive service who don't interrupt your conversations to ask if everything is alright, good atmosphere, decent wine. We had the £20 menu where you get lots of bits of meat and a side which was very good but I think next time we'll go for a massive slab of meat instead! Highly recommended.

I love Blacklock. Great meat, great cheesecake and great value. The reason I didn’t give 5 stars across the board was just one wee niggle on service. The service in every department is great bar one. I always watch my pint sit on the bar for 5 mins before I get it. I actually went up and asked if it was mine the other night. It’s a small thing at a great place, but it’s just weird to watch my drink get poured then watch it sit on the bar for 5 mins before it gets brought across. In general though this place is cracking! Thanks again for a lovely night!

Excellent meat and sauce, quick and efficient service. Good value for money in a not too noisy restaurant. Me and my friend both opted for two pieces of meat, sauce and a side order each, which was perfect for us two ladies. As a meat lover, I can be quite particular, but this was a great experience and I would happily recommend it to anyone.

The food was good as usual - however they were clearly understaffed so it took 40 mins to receive two simple ribeye steaks. They also refused to serve us coffees because they said they were short staffed! Sort it out guys!

Sunday 'all-in' roast not what it used to be. Meat is much fattier and on the salty side - portions are also way smaller than when we went there about 6 months ago. Quite dissapointed, would no longer recommend to a friend. Service was a little but on point nonetheless.

We will always make time to visit Blacklock for Sunday Roast whenever we are in London. We always go for All In and add pork! Those crackling pork skins are gorgeous! We love the Pig’s head starter too. Anyway we love every single bit of the Sunday Roast in Blacklock, from starter to dessert.
The only down side was we got to sit near the kitchen, my hair smells of roast whole day; make me hungry again!

While I was waiting for my food, the couple next to me kept raving about how good everything was. I thought they were exaggerating until I received my own meal. Wow. Everything was so delicious and reasonably priced. The service was also quick and friendly. I considered going back the next day for lunch, that's how good it was. I'll definitely try to visit the next time I'm in London.

Service is excellent - the staff can't do more for you, but there's not airs and graces - they don't fall all over you or put on a fake act. The roast, of course, is the best in London!

It's always a pleasure enjoying Sunday lunch at Black Lock!

My friend and I had the 'All In' (like most other people, probably). The starters were yummy, and the 4 chops were all delicious, especially the lamb. Nice sauce too.
Could've done with a few more chips though.
Pretty good value for money.
