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 a fan of Blacklock for a few years but never managed to book the Sunday roast lunch until now. It did not disappoint and was well worth the wait. Perfectly cooked meats, good variety of delicious sides (including huge, fluffy Yorkshire puddings), unusual tasty starters, great drink selection and a cheesecake even non-cheesecake eaters fell in love with. The portions were generous and it's value for money. The staff are accommodating and friendly.

Amazing Food, everything tastes great! You get a lot of Food, so its really good value. The wine and drinks were amazing. It was a busy night, but the staff took their time to guide us through the menu, they were very helpful and patient With us (We dont really speak fluent English..). Would recommend for meatlovers :) It was a lot of People there and a good energy, but if you want a really quiet dinner, this is not for you (At least not on a saturday)

Took the boyfriend here for his birthday pre-theatre. Staff were really friendly and food good. The 'all in' option is good if you want to try a bit of everything, all I didn't love the pre-chop bites (unique flavours and fiddly to eat). There was only one choice of dessert - white chocolate cheesecake - which was actually amazing! The drinks are good value (for London) although boyf would've preferred a pint of lager on tap instead of only halves.

Wide variety of steaks on the chalkboard menu, and that’s clearly the main focus. Service was efficient. Mysteriously they have no espresso machine or coffee of any kind though our waitress did offer to go out and get coffees!

The meat was great and the prices were reasonable because they have an offer called "butcher price Mondays" where the chops are about 1/3 off.

Unfortunately, everything other than the meat was disappointing. The "pre-chop bites" were genuinely unpleasant, particularly the pig's head and kimchi, which was little more than chunks of unrendered fat. The pickles might as well have been half a pint of vinegar and a straw.

The service was friendly but on this showing I don't think I'll be going back.

Sunday lunch. All felt a bit rushed. Food came out before the drinks. The food was pretty cold, we sent the cauli cheese back. A fresh, hot lot was bought out so it was fine. The beef was delicious.

This was my third time eating here. Twice for All In chops and once for All In Sunday roast. On all occasions the service has been fantastic from start to finish. Attentive but never smothering.
The food here is the main reason you come, I've never been disappointed. The sides and bites all add something and are delicious in their own right. Wash it all down with one of the great cocktails on the menu, well priced too.

Blacklock as always was a delight and all the rave reviews it receives is completely deserved.

On this occasion I went for my wife's birthday and for my in-laws' 5th Anniversary and mentioned this briefly as part of our booking. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt so well looked after and the personal touches just made the meal that much more special.

The food itself is a triumph in and of itself, chops sold by the gram (or the platter if you just can't decide) are all expertly cooked. Moist, well flavoured and perfectly charred meat is the focus of this restaurant and they honestly need no accompaniment. But for the same of easing your bowels the sides that are available are glorious anyway, the roasted sweet potato is a nice sweet alternative to normal potatoes although their beef dripping chips are also something to behold. We had the seasonal Autumn Salad (watermelon beetroor, banana shallots, salad leaves, pomegranate, cheese - divine) and topped it off with some bone marrow butter to garnish the delicious meat (WOW). You don't regret ordering anything, only that sadly, your stomach can only take so much perfection.

We shared a 'cheesecake' between the 4 of us - white chocolate shavings amongst mascarpone cheese and biscuit base crumbs - and we thought we were going to pass out from satisfaction. The house limoncello (and pinacello - pineapple!) saw to it that we left Blacklock as giddy as when we arrived, only a lot, lot, fuller.

Coming from Arizona U S A, it was everything we imagined a "proper English Sunday roast dinner" should be. I was with my brother in law on a bucket trip for him and since we,ve been back in the U S A, it's about all we can talk about. Right up there with The Tower & Westminster Cathedral for fulfilling a major check on our lists of what should be done in London.

By far the absolute best meal we had in London. I had another spot picked out, far more expensive, and my wife picked BLACLOCK. I'd never admit this in person; but, she was right on the money. It's moderately priced bill of fare belies the high level of quality of food and service. I'm now a big fan of minty peas!! They're going on our Chrismas roast dinner!

Must say this is my new favourite steak restaurant . We had the 800g porterhouse and the ribeye (superb) which were amazing . For sides we had beef dripping fries , ashen sweet potatoes( must have), kale and baby gem. Cocktails were nice and the Malbec went perfectly with the steaks. Finished off with the cheesecake. If you haven’t been here before, don’t think about it. Just book a table and go there. You won’t regret it. Next I want to try their Sunday roasts .
