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.

Great venue as always...for the meat eaters. Food and drinks were great and staff knew all about the food.

This was my fourth visit, this time with two newbies, and once against it did not disappoint. My carnivorous friends were very happy! The service was excellent, we were in a hurry as we were going to the theatre and the waiter was really accommodating, getting the food order in ASAP and then coming back to take our drinks order. The meat is supposed to be the highlight, but the sides are always memorable too. Plus great cocktails!

We wanted meat! And we got it along with some interesting and delicious scallops as an appetizer. Just fast for several hours before eating here to enjoy the meal to it fullest. As for the desert, remember what I said about fasting.

Booked some weeks ahead for Fathers Day Sunday lunch for 4 and was worth the wait. Met/exceeded all expectations. Food was plentiful, recommend the All In of Beef/Lamb/Pork. Food comes piled up around massive yorkshire. Best gravy ever and refilled as needed. Not many veg beyond roasties so may want some additional veg however beware as large portions and we found we did not need extra veg.
Limited options re dessert ie cheesecake only however this came in large serving dish which was fun and very tasty. Two portions was enough for three of us. Service friendly and as needed, cant wait to go again.

Booked for a pre-theatre meal. It was my birthday and 30th wedding anniversary which I mentioned at the time. We were given a lovely cold glass of prosecco on arrival. Staff were so friendly and made us both feel very relaxed and checked on us during the evening. The food is amazing. We went 'All in' and the chops were delicious and the beef dripping chips to die for. Wonderful experience and we will definitely return the next time we are in London. Yummmmm

First time visiting Blacklock and what a gem. Food is awesome as are the team that greet and serve you. Fantastic choice of music is played in the background without dominating the ambience and then the food arrives..

Menu is a meat lovers dream and the quality is so so good. It's all rounded off with the best White Chocolate Cheesecake in the world..

Will return is due course for round two. DC

Everything from the staff, to the atmosphere, to the wine, to every last bite was utstanding at Blacklock Chops. The staff knew their stuff and were happy to help us decipher the menu, the meat was the most tender and well seasoned I've had in a long time, and the gravy alone is worth returning for! 11/10!

Friendly and prompt service, great food. Only thing is music was a tad too loud, and coupled with the acoustics of the basement location = difficult to have a conversation.

Blacklock is outstanding for two reasons. Firstly, the staff are by far the most attentive of any restaurant I've ever been to, friendly, knowledgeable, and just all round welcoming, especially when you compare them to the other London steak restaurants which often have a very cold approach.

But the main reason is the meat itself. Its amazing. So tender, filled with taste and great value. The sides are a little small but why detract from the main event.

I can't recommend blacklock enough

We were made very welcome and our server was excellent pointing out the cuts of meat we were eating and just generally being very positive.

The atmosphere was very lively, so perhaps not quite right for a romantic dinner for two.

There was plenty of food and I like the simplicity of the food and wine list

Superb food at bargain prices. Go for the "all in" and you will have had a starter and a maincourse of well cooked and seasoned meat for only £20. Gem of a place.

Loved Blacklock! On the recommendation of our waiter, we shared the platter of all chops for 2 which came with starters and 2 sides plus a large sirloin steak and some extra sides. The chops were delicious and we got a good selection of beef, pork, and lamb. The steak was cooked perfectly and was tasty but we did prefer the chops. The little bites were top notch - pig cheek was the best - and just loved the bone marrow and garlic sauce! £5 cocktails are always great but they were excellent too. Friendly staff, great food for under £50pp and we left STUFFED.

We went to Blacklock for my birthday dinner before going to the theatre. It was in a great location, right around the corner from the theatre and easy to access via transport. When we arrived, they immediately offered to store our suitcase and our jackets, which was much appreciated! We had a reservation (would definitely recommend - it was packed!!) and were sat immediately. The service was fantastic - our server helped us with the menu (it's a bit complicated to a first-timer!) and we went with his recommendations, which turned out to be the perfect amount of food. My partner and I split a sirloin and I'm pretty sure it was the best steak I have ever had!! The service was very efficient, but unfortunately we had to run off to get to our show on time. Our server had overheard that it was my birthday, so along with the check, he brought over a piece of cheesecake with a candle in it - in a tupperware! I was really taken aback by how thoughtful it was of him, knowing we had to dash but still wanting to celebrate my birthday! Overall I could not recomment Blacklock more. Really great vibe, excellent service, excellent food, worth every penny!

The staff were amazingly friendly and always smiling: It really made the dining experience enjoyable. The amazing thing about the service was that it was all the staff who were smiling and helpful. Our principle waiter, and gentlemen who acknowledged me, while finishing with other diners, seated us, explained the menu and continually topped our water glasses up was a true gent: He even got up from his own lunch to acknowledge our departure. Its a very long time since I've experienced such attentive service and I eat at many restaurants for both work and leisure. Oh and the food bountiful and very good value for money... we will be back.

Our service was welcoming, attentive, knowledgeable, and the food that came with it was beyond our expectations. We had a cut of prime rib and several delicious cocktails. At the end they put a candle in our dessert for our birthday.
