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!’

Simply the best roast in the city! No one can outdo Blacklock at this price or quality.

Both myself and my party had an amazing meal in your restaurant. It was perfection from start to finish. The hospitality was 10 out of 10 given the special occasion and the food and drink was phenomenal! 

I would highly recommend and visit again

Really tasty food, though not much choice for vegetarians - as our party was all meat lovers this was not an issue! The All In deal is great value and the steak, while not cheap, is not bad compared to other steakhouses in London and is definitely comparable in flavour and quality. Desserts are generously portioned though it would have been nice to have more than two options, or at least one which was a bit less heavy (we still tried both and they were delicious!)

Fantastic meal at Blackrock on a Saturday night, it was our anniversary and they kindly gave us free drinks to celebrate, which was a lovely touch. Food was delicious, we had the 'All in' which was a great selection and plenty of food for 2. Service was fabulous, from the bar staff to waiting staff, everyone was friendly, attentive and helpful, can't wait to go back and try the Sunday roast!!

Had heard great things about their Sunday roast offering and booked a table a few weeks in advance. It didn't disappoint!. We had a sharing roast for 2 and there was more than enough food with everything cooked to perfection. Great service throughout and they even took our drinks off the bill because we had to wait a bit longer for our food.

The sunday roast is amazing! Surprisingly the gravy was the most amazing part!! All of it was lovely, but weirdly we both commented on how the gravy was SO good! A roast each is about £20, which doesn't seem bad but if you share a starter and share a dessert and have one glass of wine each it ends up at £75 which made me choke at the end of the lunch. I would return but definitely only for special occasions and not the regular I was hoping to make it! It was a lovely atmosphere, the staff were lovely as always, possibly the best trained staff from any restaurant I've been to in London. Always try and time it so you get the last portion of cheesecake and you usually end up with a bit extra...which was delicious as always!!

Visited Blacklock in SoHo in June of 2018, had an exceptional experience. Decided to check out the Shoreditch location on our most recent visit to London and were slightly disappointed in comparison. The portion seemed smaller (still lots of food) and the staff are friendly, but offered a different level of service. The Shoreditch location was perhaps a little ‘hipper’. We went “All In” for the Sunday roast and it was tasty but not as hot as it could have been, got cold almost immediately.

We had a fantastic meal at Blacklock. First a drink at the bar form a very friendly barman who made a delicious old fashioned. We went with the ribeye steak and porterhouse. Both beautifully cooked and high quality meat. The recommended red wine was also above average. The sides were also excellent especially the broccoli. The most amazing part was that the manager comped our entire meal. An entirely unnecessary gesture over a very minor inconvenience that really didn't bother us at all. They're obviously highly committed to customer service and the experience. Highly recommended.

Service was very poor throughout the night.

We were offered a cheesecake (on the house) as one of us had his birthday and we were then charged for it.

I had one of the best vegetarian meals I’ve had in years, and my friends said the roast was the best they’ve had. Lovely gin cocktails - and for a fiver! Crazy portion sizes and the service was brill.
