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.

Really enjoyed our visit to Blacklock, the food was really nice, we had one of the 'all in' deals which was £20 each and really good value. When making the booking I'd said we were visiting for a birthday and at the end of the meal they brought over a dessert with a candle on for by boyfriends birthday which was such a lovely touch and unexpected. Will definately be returning :)

Dinner of 4 for both of the in-laws’ birthdays. As it was Sunday, the menu was Sunday roast. A-MAZING!!! Would definitely recommend, book in advance as there is a long waiting list but completely worth the wait. The staff were lovely, roast as good as your mum’s. The in-laws loved it and the restaurant even did something special for their birthdays. Very, very impressed! You must go!!!

Visited Blacklock on a Saturday afternoon with a friend and what a great little find it was. We went 'all in' and everything was so delicious, from the sharing starter to the perfectly cooked meats and tasty sides. We enjoyed a couple of cocktails from the £5 menu too, the whole meal was incredibly good value. The staff were so lovely as well, our waiter went on his lunch break but made sure to come and tell us....we were still there when he came back though just like he guessed we would be! If you like meat then you will love this place, I literally cannot find anything negative to say!

NOT ALLOWED TO DINE ON NEW YEARS EVE. BUT ... HAPPY EVER AFTER.
On last New Year’s Eve, Blacklock was forced to shut down at the last hour and turned down diners due to a gas leak on the upper floor of the building. For our safety, we were not allowed to dine and naturally I was mad because I’ve booked a table many weeks in advance for my family to celebrate the last day of the year. My family was left stranded without a place as it was New Year’s Eve. Scrambling to our feet, we managed to find a place but the food wasn’t great and was damn expensive.
Fast forward to a week later, I received a surprise email from the restaurant manager Victoria, apologising for the inconvenience caused and inviting my family back for a complimentary meal. Of course, I wasn’t expecting that invitation as to me, it was no fault of theirs and I have already put the matter to rest.
I went for the meal today with my friend as my parents couldn’t make it. We were warmly welcome. Victoria was apologetic when we met and the whole serving team was friendly. Needless to say, food was fantastic. In my opinion, they didn’t have to make it up, after all, they did the right thing to put customers’ safety first. Now I understand why they have such good reviews on the internet. They are thoughtful and genuinely care and value each customer. Thank you Blacklock and Victoria (Vicky) for the personal and wonderful gesture. Happy New Year!

The Sunday Roast is a must try! My partner and I both had the beef roast, which came with a generous serving of greens and sides. The cocktails were also delectable, all in all a lovely way to spend my last Sunday of 2017.

Just what we needed for a family pre theatre meal. Service is great, food is really tasty and the all in is great value. We mixed two all ins with a large steak and that was perfect. Drinks were great too.

I stubled across this little gem when looking to book a pre-show dinner date for my wife’s 30th birthday, and what a find it turned out to be!!

At first I was weary when walking through the front door and wasn’t sure what to expect until we arrived downstairs into this fabulous, vibrant restaurant - the aroma of fresh, juicy meat cooking hit me instantly!

The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. Our coats were taken straight away and our drinks order taken shortly after!

Our food arrived after a short but comfortable wait and the verdict - WOW!
The steak was on another level!

With a great selection of drinks and food to die for, Blacklock should definitely not be overlooked!

Thanks to Blacklock for a memorable dining experience, we WILL be back!!

This is by far the best Sunday roast I have had in the UK, and this was my 7th time in a year. Advice is that book ahead of time (like 2 months in advance).

Had a school friend's reunion Xmas dinner and this was the perfect spot - got stuck into the very reasonably priced cocktails and excellent wine, and then the massive plate of chops to share (with that incredible bread underneath...). The charred sweet potatoes were as good as I remembered too. Left stuffed and drunk and happy, the staff were brilliant too - couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, really helped the night along in the way you want your waiting staff to do.
