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.

Fantastic place. Great selection of steaks, great atmosphere, staff who were friendly without being overbearing. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food (and cocktails) and a nice buzzy atmosphere which didn’t get oppressively loud. Went on a weekend for a birthday lunch including my young daughter, who had a good range of options to choose from their ‘small chops’ section of the menu. I’m already recommending Blacklock to friends.

Great food, lively atmosphere, great service. Food took slightly too long to hit the table but staff knew it and brought extra sides as an apology before anything needed to be said.
Wines were good, and good value. Will definitely be back.

Really enjoyed the meal but we received the wrong set of chops.

There were a couple of times the tables got mixed up and the chops we received were no as we ordered, missed out on getting some of lamb chops we wanted to try but no big deal I’ll get them next time.

Awesome apart from that.

First time dining at Blacklock and won't be the last. We had pig's head on toast to start and the all in roast dinner. Absolutely delicious. Great dirty martini's and a fabulous bottle of pinot noir. All of which was delivered by our most lovely server, Alina. Great food, great drinks, great service, great price! Thank you so much x

We had the Sunday Lunch at Blacklock. Everyone knows the food at Blacklock is amazing, it's impossible to get a table on a Sunday for a reason. But the thing that really made our experience (I was with four friends), was the service. Excellent service isn't just about an attentive waiter... Our wonderful waiter was genuine and relaxed, but at the same time, could not do enough to ensure we had a great experience. He stood and chatted to us, but didn't linger annoyingly, he didn't pester us to order as soon as we sat down, or check on us every five minutes - but he was there when we needed him and made us feel totally at ease. He made excellent wine recommendations, he was warm, friendly, and just a decent, lovely guy! In fact, all of the staff we encountered were lovely! The environment was cosy and relaxed - exactly what you want for a Sunday roast. And of course... the food.... without doubt the best roast in London. We'll definitely be back. Thanks Blacklock!!

Excellent as always. Can’t tell you enough how attentive, intuitive, and considerate the staff are. They are down to earth and passionate about what they do - it makes a big difference to the evening. And the food, the FOOD! You’re just not going to get meat this good at this price anywhere else in London. The value for money is extraordinarily. I find myself craving the marrow gravy and Blacklock is becoming a regular for me. They have never failed to impress! Butcher Monday’s are a real treat (I’ve had the porterhouse three times now, it’s perfect to share). Alternatively go anytime for the signature ‘All In’ and do not leave without trying the marrow sauce! You can go off the menu for cocktails if you like too. I’ve not tried the Sunday roast yet, but that’s next on my list. This place is a true meat lovers sanctuary!

Really enjoyed our visit, would highly recommend the 'all in' selection. Staff were attentive and helpful and the background music which - unusually - was just the right level so you could hear it but still hold a conversation was a great playlist.

It's the third time I have been to Blacklock and the service each time has been great - all of the staff were very attentive and friendly: they all look like they really enjoy working there, which is so rare in hospiality! The food was lovely and the "£20 all in" regular deal really is exceptional value. One of my friends was just a bit disappointed that the menu didn't make it clear the wine was draft wine and came in a decanter at slightly less than a full bottle (700ml) - but that certainly didn't spoil anything in my view. Great food, and great vibe!
