Sunday Lunch
Casual
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. Bookings: Monday - Friday Bookings for lunch and pre-theatre from 12-3pm & 5-6pm Bookings for 6+ from 6pm Saturday: 12:00 - 23:00 Bookings for lunch and pre-theatre from 12-6pm Bookings for 6+ from 6pm Sunday: 12:00 - 17:30 Bookings all day for any number

Hands down the best roast I have ever had. Incredible service, I told them it was my partner’s birthday and we were treated so well (not that they would have treated us any less wonderfully if it hadn’t been!). Amazing little doggy bag to take away, great cocktails and incredibly reasonably priced. The perfect Sunday afternoon!

It's quite overpriced, for £18 you just get a few pieces of slightly dry meat, a couple bits of potato, an oily roasted cabbage and carrots, and massive Yorkshire pudding. The vegetarian option was a bit of a joke, they just replaced the meat with a lukewarm and bland cauliflower cheese.

What a brilliant Sunday lunch. It was a friend's birthday and the whole team made it so special. Beautiful food, wine, atmosphere and most of all the beat service I can remember ever having had! Can't wait to go back!

All in comes in large portions, not a fan appetizers other than the fries. Pork chop is the best

Consistently good food. Serve with a smile and an enthusiasm for all things meat! The slow roasted sweet potato is a must have side together with the sharing platter. Go hungry and you won't be disappointed!

Second visit here, had the beef prime rib which was a lot larger than I expected but delicious, also shared sides of chips and sweet potato which were very tasty, also enjoyed a few old fashioned cocktails at only a fiver a drink, will definitely book again when I’m back in London

Fantastic service, fantastic food. Had early reservation and it filled up quick. I would highly recommend.

One side note - it is in a basement and I saw only a set of stairs to get down so be cognizant of that before booking.

This is the third or fourth time we have eaten at blacklock it is a family favourite and we will be back. The atmosphere is great and the meat is even better. Hard to believe how much meat two young adult men can eat but even our boys were full when we left. Strongly recommended.

My first trip to Blacklock and I already can’t wait to come back. Everything was brilliant from start to finish. The service was wonderful even though the restaurant was busy. The staff were lovely, friendly and very attentive! The food was absolutely unreal. Everything was perfect.

This is a basement restaurant in Soho only a short walk from Piccadilly Circus. The music was great in this place. Rob, tall bearded hipster host answered any questions we had and helped us choose our food as it was our first time. He did not disappoint. You get a trio of appetisers to start with (on the house) Wine is on tap rather than in a glass bottle. If like us you like your red wine then deffo have the Syrah Yellowtail. For our mains he advised a Lamb Barnsley chop 400g (?) and a Porterhouse 600g (?) Beef dripping chips, a salad and some veggies, Garlic marrow spread and Beef & Onion gravy.
This was an awesome selection of food and it was just what we wanted. The wine went down a treat also. Their attention to you is not too in your face. Water and wine were topped up regularly. The dessert chosen was a cheesecake of some description. This was measured out with a large spoon from a huge bowl at the table.
The atmosphere in there was fantastic. Not as big restaurant as i thought it would be but great none the less. The only thing that could have made our experience better was if we didn’t have to pay the bill at the end. We will certainly be going back there for more, and next time it will be for their Sunday Roast...
Thank you to Rob and the rest of the staff. Will be in touch to sort out our Sunday visit for when next in town....

We went for lunch on a Monday at Blacklock Soho. The service was fantastic every person was helpful and enthusiastic about their work and providing great service. We had a porterhouse steak on their butcher shop price (on Mondays). It was prepared very well, and we ordered sauce which we recommend. Normally we don’t do sauces for steak but this added so much flavour. The sides were great as well we had the sweet potato and baby gems. We would recommend and go back next time we are in London if we are looking for a steakhouse.

We had the best time at blacklock. We had seen a video on Facebook of the roast dinners so we booked a table for 7 adults and a 3 year old. The staff were absolutely brilliant with my 3 year old nephew! And the food was unreal! Exceeded our expectation! Will defiantly be returning

Wow! Ate at Blacklock two year ago(I from California)and ate again in October. How they keep such a high standard of hospitality, and superb food is amazing to me. The service staff's warm and efficient service is top notch. They are not obtrusive and yet can't do enough for you. any request I had was met with a smile. The food is eye popping, it is so flavorful and delicious. I've been twice for the Sunday Roast and recommend (All In). A great meal and a fantastic price, what can be beat that! Blacklock has won my taste buds! When I go to London, Blacklock is more valuable to me than the Queen's jewels.
Long Live Blacklock!

Got to our table 25 mins after our reservation. The guy at reception told us to wait in the pub next door and when I went to check in again he said the people at our table were slow to get up and he asked me if I wanted him to give them a little nudge. I thought that should be an obvious call. The food was ok but not for the waiting time and the meat although good wasn't superb for a restaurant that specialises in meat. The Italian waitor was great though and he helped us a lot with the menu and making sure we ordered enough but not too much. Also another waiter that tended at some points was clearly drunk.

Service was outstanding on every level. I wish I had the name of our waiter as he was excellent. All requests had been noted and remembered- one of us is dairy free and one gluten free. It was also my partners birthday celebration. Dishes were suggested and menu amended to suit us all with a surprise dessert (for us all!) and a birthday card. Food was amazing too! Meat to die for. I eat out a lot and this was the best experience I’ve had for a long long time. Even on a busy Saturday in soho the excelled! Thank you.
