Sunday Lunch
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.

Didn’t even have the decency to contact to let me know they were closed. But received a email to confirm attendance the day before!

Traveled from Gloucester to see Father Christmas at Hamleys and booked a table for the afternoon. Never mind

Once again, Blacklock performed. From the pigs head on toast to the enormous porterhouse the food and service was as always, impeccable, we walked in and rolled out. The ginger mescal margarita was a nice touch to start.

Last family trip out before Tier 3. Fantastic staff, switched my wife’s wine no questions asked. Delicious meat , great atmosphere and fantastic value as it was Monday night. Will definitely be back soon to try the Sunday lunch. Even gave us a doggy bag for the bones for our dog. Highly recommended!

Really lovely little place to go to eat. The food is always good quality and the cheesecake is quite honestly the best cheesecake I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a LOT!)
The staff are all really nice and well informed of you have any questions at all.
It does get quite loud in there but I think that’s because the space is quite small so it’s to be expected.
Would definitely recommend and cannot wait to go back.

Great food as usual, forgot we could have shared a dessert but managed to almost eat it all. Can’t wait to get out of tier 3 to go back for Sunday roast which has always been great.

Yet again the Blacklock deliver on a Sunday. I go at least one Sunday a month for the roast dinners (Covid permitting). The Chicken livers, Old Fashion drink and the Beef Roast were, as usual, amazing!!! Service is excellent and speedy! Will be booking my next sitting forthwith.

Sensational Sunday lunch, mountain of meat and veg. Beautifully cooked over smoking wood for a price not much different to a pub.

Loved it!

Blacklock was exceptional as always. The service was top notch and the food was sensational. It was easy to tell the staff were happy to have diners back and we felt like we were well attended to. The ‘All In’ is the best value meal in London in my opinion. Delicious meat, wonderful chips, make sure you have the chop sauce it’s delish! Can’t wait to come back soon.

Meat-tastic. Great sauces and gravy. Helpful waiting staff. Just a bit too noisy for us - great vibe if you're part of a big group (not in Covid times!) but not so much for a nice date.

I've been coming to Blacklock since it 1st opened and always had a wonderful time but thought I would write to say a special thank you. From making the initial reservation through to the delicious food and excellent service, it was a delightful experience. Thanks for being so accommodating even through lockdown and I wish you the very best of luck going forwards and into 2021. I and my clients will be back!

This was a last-minute booking on a trip to lockdown-London. The reviews online were exceptional, so we decided to give it a go.

I think it's worth pointing out that, for those less mobile than I am, the restaurant is located in the basement, down a fairly steep flight of stairs.

We were greeted by a very polite and enthusiastic young South African man, who showed us to our table immediately. The tables were reasonably socially-distanced, and the place was full of people seemingly having a very nice time.

One slight issue with the place is that if, like us, you have a couple of tables of rowdy 20-somethings nearby, the noise can get a little bit too intrusive. Nobody was being offensive, but just a little bit ignorant to that fact that their voices were getting louder as the cocktails flowed!

My wife and I ordered a medium rare 650g porterhouse (T-bone) steak to share, plus beef dripping chips, Brussels sprouts with bacon and chestnuts and bone marrow garlic butter.

We were informed that the bigger steaks take a bit longer to cook, which was nice to be aware of, so we weren't sat wondering where out food was. In fact, it was quite good entertainment watching other monster steaks being served to other diners, really getting our appetite going!

When our steak arrived it looks wonderful, but it had already been sliced up into strips, which was quite disappointing. However, we joked that this was probably a good thing as my wife would not have seen much of it once I'd started hacking lumps off it!

It was delicious! The chips were also amazing - beefy and salty - as were the Brussels. We also ordered some Béarnaise sauce, but I have to say that this, together with the bone marrow butter, were such small portions that we barely had enough to coat a couple of chips each! There's no need to skimp on things like condiments, it can spoil the enjoyment of a good meal.

All in all, great food and service - a good night out.
