Sunday Lunch
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!’

The best restaurant experience in London for a long time. Aside form the excellent food ( we did the £20/head option which I highly recommend) the service was really great. Didn't take down the names of anyone that served us but they were all exceptional. Will definitely be back!

Loved this place! We had reservations at 8:30 and got horribly lost so we called to let them know . We were 30 minutes late and they held the kitchen open for us. The service and food were amazing and we never felt rushed or as if we were inconveniencing them. Best York ever and the white chocolate cheesecake was to die for. The ambience is casual but warm and cozy. Loved this place and the staff!

Last minute booking in Shoreditch and what a great surprise!

Food was amazing (I would highly recommend to start with the pre-bites, what a dream!); cocktails were great and the service was absolutely perfect! I had 3 'Skinny' chops and those were very generous portions! Would also highly recommend the beef dripping chips, definitely the highlight of the night!

Celebrated my wife's pre-birthday on Saturday. Service was outstanding by all staff - friendly, attentive and provided great advice and suggestions. Food was well-prepared and tasty. Even received complimentary dessert with a candle. Thanks all. Much appreciated.

Very poor customer service. The meat was very rare and portions getting smaller and smaller.

Much better experience in the Soho branch, where the waiters are kind and attentive enough to notice when meat is too rare and offer to cook it more without you even needing to ask for it (still, you should ask the guest how they would like their meet cooked or explain at least how you serve it) and where they listen to your feedback and value that, instead of completely ignoring it.

This is the third Blacklock location I’ve been to and enjoyed. The all-in Sunday roast with trimmings was delicious as was the gimlet cocktail. Service was pleasant and efficient. One tiny thing: in the other 2 locations my server offered a complimentary scoop of cheesecake with my coffee which I really appreciated but not here.

We went as a group for a late lunch on a Thursday. Having visited the Soho version of this restaurant on many occasions we had expectations and they were largely met. As ever the food was excellent and our servers attentive and knowledgeable. Would always recommend Blacklock, whichever location. Thanks for a fantastic time.

Great night at Blacklock. Cosy venue excellent steaks, charming service and splendid cocktails at a very reasonable price. Only small criticism was a mix up with our starters which to the credit of the waitress was immediately removed from our bill without question. So excellent reparation right there. The chips could fill the whole cup in which they are served but a small thing considering the awesomeness of the Rib-eyes. Definitely check it out.

Fantastic food as always. I have been eating at the 3 blacklock branches since Soho first opened and never had a bad meal. The Manager at the Shoreditch branch was excellent on this visit. Very quick to sort out a minor niggle and went above and beyond to sort out. Always highly recommended

We've been to the Soho Blacklock a couple of times for pre gig dinner and loved the occasions. So for my daughter's Birthday I thought it would be a good idea to try the Sunday lunch. Soho was busy so I booked Shoreditch.

The five of us went for the all in lunch, this was served on an enormous platter. Wow, the meat was superb, especially the beef. All the trimmings were there and the roast potatoes were the best I've ever had.

Service was exemplary as always and the Shoreditch branch is they only one above ground, which was wonderful on a sunny Sunday lunchtime.

A great meal in a wonderful location with my favourite people. Thank your all at Blacklock.

It isn't cheap but a very good evening if you like grilled meats. Nice setting and very pleasant staff. Reasonably priced wine list.
