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.

Absolutely all we had hoped for. The service was tremendous. Our server explained everything clearly and made us feel so welcome. The food was amazing. All the chops were great, but the chili hollandaise sauce is what took everything over the edge.

Traveling to London, we wanted to experience a true Sunday Roast. Blacklock delivered this to perfection. I recommend this to anyone looking for the local flavor but plan ahead reservations are 6 weeks out. We are so glad we did!!!

This is the second time I have come here for a Sunday roast and again it did not disappoint! We both had an all in with a variety of three roast meats on our platter with some huge Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes and veg complimented by a sauce for every meat and some very rich gravy. Service is always attentive and friendly and the bill reasonable for the quality of the food we had. A must visit for any meat lover in London on any day of the week!

This place is fantastic from the food to the service. All servers know the food and drinks menus to a tee. And they are really friendly. The food is cooked to perfection, and is always out in great time.

Such a good place to come with a group of people to enjoy some big plates of meat.

And not to mention the dessert is unbelievable

Went here for my birthday meal with my family. Got recommended here by my sisters colleague. Without a doubt one of the best restaurants I’ve visited in London. Food was excellent and all bursting with so much flavour. The staff were incredibly on it. Highly recommend going, especially for a special occasion. Also go as a group so you can try plenty off the menu!

We were in London for my wife’s significant Birthday, on the Saturday. We wanted Sunday lunch the following day and fami,y recommended Blacklock, describing the big sharing plate piled with Yorkshire puddings, meat and veg. We chose the standard Sunday roast which my wife, son, daughter enjoyed but we all thought that it was fairly average. The beef on mine was gorgeous but the duck fat roast potatoes were really hard to cut in to and although fluffy inside were not hot. The veg consisted of five green beans and some very thinly sliced carrots. The worst thing was that the bone marrow gravy was extremely salty and the big Yorkshire puddings were all crisp and fresh air. Being from Yorkshire, I can honestly say that they are not authentic Yorkshire puddings. If you took the big Yorkshire pudding off the plate, the actual portion size is really quite small. The atmosphere is great and bustling and the staff are lovely but I couldn’t recommend it to friends or family.

I’ve been eating at Blacklock since it opened. Service and staff are the best it’s ever been. Noticeably improved on the last few visits

Food didn’t quite hit its usual excellent standards this visit but any place can have an off day. Still the best steak in London IMO

The Occasional Club convened here late afternoon.

A generous serving of meats was consumed by the Members. Ably was this meat enhanced by the quality of chips.
The attentive nature of staff was pleasing; water was readily forthcoming throughout (a necessity to compensate the saltiness of the dish).

The Club will return here with pleasure.

Definitely one of the best meats you will ever have in London. The service is impeccable and the staff will go out of their way to please you. Great atmosphere with an awesome music selection (well, at least for my eclectic taste). Beer is ice cold, as it should be. But the real hero is the meat. Melt in your mouth, cook to perfection meat heaven. And to top everything up, you have to try the Beef Dripping Chips. OMG!!!

We had an amazing meal at Blacklock. The meat was incredible and extremely well cooked. A great range of sides and sauces to go with it. Cocktails and beers were also brilliant. However, the most impressive part of our time there was the service. Anna our waitress and Andrea the manager couldn't do enough for us. Great place, I highly recommend.

We went for a birthday dinner one evening, the food was great and the staff even better!!. We were very well looked after from arriving in the restaurant. We were guided and advices in what to choose and we weren’t disappointed. It was my boyfriends birthday and at the end they brought out a dessert with a candle. I would highly recommend the cheesecake, and get double because you will want more. The only thing was that the sweet potato was too charred and burnt. That’s the way they mean it to be but half of mine was pure coal but the other half was fine so it was probably a one off. Would recommend.

Sunday lunch and the 'All in' was amazing! Meat was tender and delicious, Yorkshire's as big as your head and plenty of gravy. We were so stuffed but managed to share a desert between 3 of us which rounded the meal off nicely. Can't wait to return
