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

Went for a Sunday roast. We shared the roast for two. The whole meal was lovely. My partner has a bigger than average appetite and most times we go out for a meal he’s disappointed with the meal size but not this time. We had cheesecake for desert which was also lovely. All the staff, especially our server , were great. We will definitely go back

We have already recommended it!. We absolutely loved the whole evening and would definitely consider coming back again. The sides were amazing, only marked slightly down on food as we all wanted rib eye but they didn't have any left, waiter handled it superbly and we were all happy with what we got.

i think the food is outstanding, the hostess was also outstanding, but the size and space of the restaurant is too small for comfort. we were seated by the host stand and as the place got more crowded, the people, after they came down the stairs, crowded us as we ate, and it made us feel very uncomfortable...they need to fix this or i would not go back again

Great atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was very slow and food took longer than expected but delicious when it arrived. I imagine service times was simply down to how busy the restaurant was but not ideal to receive your 2nd drinks when you have nearly finished your meal. Despite this my friend and I loved the food and I shall definitely be back.

Booking Blacklock Soho was a simple process. We arrived early, but were seated within a couple of minutes. The service was excellent and quick. The food was delicious. We certainly intend to return to Blacklocks when we are next in London and readily recommend it to our friends.

Neat little basement venue with a very friendly and helpful team of servers who carefully explained the menu in a very even handed way. Decent range of food - mainly meat as one would expect - and good value for money. Excellent washrooms kept spotlessly clean. Speed of delivery of food to the table could be improved and the room got rather cold although it was early November.

Simply no better restaurant in London. The food is outstanding but the service is another level. Incredibly attentive, lots of nice touches, it’s like it should be but not easy to find anymore.

We will be going back many more times.

Wrote a Google review so will summarise here too:
Went here for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend and it was incredible. Our table was fab, the food was exquisite - the meat (pork tomahawk and a ribeye steak on the bone) was melt in the mouth, chips and grilled anchovy Lettuce was amazing and the garlic bone marrow was to die for. Cocktails were really well balanced and tasty. The experience was amazing and made even better by our awesome, helpful, hilarious waiter.

Thank you Blacklock- we will definitely be returning,

From Phoebe and Rob

Really great food, I really think it’s better tasting than Hawksmoor. Only thing I didn’t like was the noise level. Oh, leave space for cheesecake for dessert, easily one of the best cheesecakes around.

The quality of meat was perfect and it was cooked exactly how I like it. The service was very good and friendly. There is a secret menu that is rather hidden and scattered around the walls and columns. The entrance to the restaurant looks ordinary when you walk in but it’s a really hidden gem once you are in. Perfect place for lunch and dinner.

This is a very good restaurant in a super location. It's a basement. The decor is sort of artisan, nice, tables are fairly close together, I was hoping to have a private chat so asked for one with a bit more separation which I got. The menu takes a bit of figuring, it really does, it is far from intuitive. The food was great and the staff were warm and friendly and good at their jobs. Strictly for carnivores.

Fabulous staff, gave great advice and all looked to be enjoying their work. Friday afternoon when we went, and there was a good flow of people which gave the place a vibrancy. On recommendation from our waitress, we went for the’all-in’. Crackers laden with various toppings first, and then beautifully cooked meat arrived with our choices of sides. We requested no lamb, and were given more pork and beef steak, and washed down with the house lager. Simply, great service, food, and value. Will definitely return when next in London.

Fantastic food, definitely up there with the best roasts. Only 2 things- it was very noisy and every 20 minutes happy birthday was being sang. Also there is no chocolate based dessert on the Sunday roast menu.

All in all would recommend.
