Blacklock Shoreditch is set an old furniture factory in the heart of London’s East End. Expect the usual highest quality meat from Phillip Warren in Cornwall for unbeatable value and always lots of fun. The restaurant has a separate bar with a new bar food menu and our friends at Slowly Shirley, the New York cocktail bar, adding a slice of the Big Apple to our drinks list! Oh and our award winning Sunday Roasts, almost as good as Mum’s, are a thing here too!’

Delicious Sunday roast, went All-in and was very satisfied afterwards. Delicious gravy and sauces complementing the juicy array of meats.

I’m someone who doesn’t like going out for Sunday roast because I believe they are all overrated and overpriced. However, Blacklock really did amaze me. The service first and foremost was AMAZING everyone was so friendly from the bar to the table service. Drinks were so reasonable (£5 bloody Mary’s!) then the food came, it was delicious, we went all in and some beef, lamb and pork which were all cooked very very well and delicious. All the extras (potatoes, Yorkshire’s carrots etc) were really lovely. Particularly the potatoes which are hard to find when dining out. The only slight gripe is that it was a tad cold when arrived (the meat) but that really is being penickety. 100% recommend and can’t wait to go again!!!

Lovely and spacious restaurant. Really friendly service and good quality food. My husband has gluten intolerance and they were happy to accommodate. Really enjoy our experience. The cheese cake is to die for.

Visited Blacklock for Sunday lunch, the food was amazing and great value for money. Ambience and decor of the restaurant is really lovely, however the service could have been more attentive. It was very busy so I recommend booking far in advance! I booked 6 weeks in advance for a table of 6

One of the best roast dinners I've had in London.
The staff were really friendly + we didn't ever find ourselves looking around to order something or catch their attention; in fact the one time we did try + catch our waiter's attention as he walked away someone else was over a split second later which was impressive!
The food was ridiculously good - loved it! Full of flavour + plenty of it, plus the wait was not long at all which was a nice surprise.
We opted for the cheesecake dessert + it was SO good.

Overall experience was really positive - i'll definitely be back and i'll be recommending to friends too.

The Sunday roast was one of the best I’ve ever had...and I’ve had A LOT. It was great value and good portions. Sides and drinks were very reasonable. Would definitely go back.

Food is really good and service very friendly and quick. But it is unfortunately quite noisy which makes it difficult to talk.

We love Blacklock. The food is amazing. On this occasion the service fell short. After the mains no-one offered us dessert or drinks, and apart from clearing our plates we had to ask for everything. There seemed to be a lot of staff around but no-one looking after us. Bit of a shame.

The service was very good and tailored, however the food wasn't great specially for the price. The portions were generous, but my steak that was ordered medium-rare was tasting like burnt meat on the outside.
Despite that, the sides were very good. We ordered 3 for 2 people (the waiter recommendation was 4) but I honestly believe that 2 would have been enough.
The white chocolate cheesecake iwas delicious! Definitely try that

Love love LOVE Blacklock. So much so I've been 5 times in about 2 weeks!
They have amazing £5 cocktails and the food is delicious - such tasty cuts of meat. With brilliant service and a cracking playlist, it makes for the best evening (for either food or just drinks).
They are also brilliant with allergens and there are lots of options if you are gluten free.

My only slight fault would be the noise. Bit loud for me but lots of people in a relatively small area so not surprised. However I went for the food which was superb!!!!

The food was absolutely delicious, we went for the ‘all in roast’. Slightly disappointed with the dessert choice, only two available. Ideally there would be a few to choose from!

We booked Blacklock for Sunday lunch, as it came greatly recommended by friends.
Both my partner and me had the beef roast, shared a side of cauliflower cheese, and had two drinks each.

The food was outstanding, the beef was nice and rare, the vegetables retained a nice crunch, carrot and parsnips were blackened on the coal fire to roasted perfection.
We were served promptly, considering the restaurant was full, and the staff was polite.

The only aspect that let the place down, in my opinion, was how closely packed the tables are, making the environment not feel very cosy and the noise levels annoying at times.

The drinks on draft also come in odd sizes (opposed to pints), and this is not clear on the menu.

Overall, I would be back for the delicious food, but perhaps at a less popular time and maybe with a group of friends rather than as a two.

Sunday roast, finally at the Blacklock. Was it worth the wait? You’d better believe it. We had the all in, suprisingly the pork wining the battle of the meats! Best roast potatoes ever!! Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the music was right up our street and added to the experience. Staff were unpretentious and fun to chat to. The only reason why it wasn’t a full star rating was the over priced wine, which even by London standards was stretching it. Loved it though sent us back up North happy and very full😁

The food and the service are both perfect and worth visiting. If you are 3 or 4, great option is to take some of the mix and share. Also try different sides. Recommend broccoli and the onion sauce. Listen to the staff recommendations.
