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

Great for meat lovers! Service is a little slow sometimes but food is high quality.

Excellent meat, and it shows they take pride in the food they cook.
The salads are good too, fresh and wholesome, and the home made bread soaked in gravy is sooo naughty and delightful.
The service was very professional and friendly.
The only issue was the loud noise. The music was too loud so all diners had to raise their voices just to be heard, which put a damper on ambience.
All in all, definitely recommended!

I know it’s a carnivore’s paradise but being more of a veggie eater, I have to say I enjoyed the side dishes enormously. The meat was very good too, yes, but the beetroot and goats cheese, kale and Parmesan (albeit a tad too acidic) and the chicory, pear and walnut salad were superb. It got very noisy at around 6.30 and the tables are perhaps a bit too close to each other, but it didn’t bother us too much. Interesting ambience, nice staff and good value for money. Can most certainly recommend

Always fab. Wish it was still a secret! Have been coming here for a few years now. Standards never drop, and the quality of the food and drink never waiver. It’s my absolute fail safe for a special evening

From the minute we entered the building every employee had a smile on their face and was very welcoming, the food was excellent and very hot and the best bit was the CHEESECAKE ! Homer voice “Mmmmmm cheese cake” :)

Yet another fantastic Sunday Lunch. Food perfect. Service exceptional and you feel all the staff want you to have the best time ever and they achieve their goal. Also, when the bill comes its very reasonable. Blacklock is our favourite restaurant bar none!

A lovely meal in a great restaurant. The only downside was we must have arrived at the busiest time of day when folk were arriving after being to a matinee show. Once the peak in arrivals had past it was a more enjoyable venue, but if that’s the only gripe I’ve got it shows we enjoyed the experience.

As some of the other reviews have said we arrived for our booking and was asked to pop next door for a drink as the table wasn't't ready, for us this wasn't a problem as we had the time. The restaurant itself is a bit on the noisy/cramp size. But the waiters and food were great, I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The were very warm and friendly. 2 staff members remembered me from a previous visit and made a point to come over and say hello.
The food tasted great and was in abundance. We chose the All in menu and it was definitely value for money.

We have been to Blacklock Soho in the past. The food is very good, drinks very reasonable. Cocktails were £5, which for central London is hard to beat! The staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The only thing I wish they could have is perhaps another choice of desert, such as a chocolate based one, like a brownie. Apart from that, we had no complaints and we would definitely go back there again.

Excellent as always. The team went the extra mile to help us celebrate the 2 birthdays in our party, despite them being very busy (and possibly a little understaffed?). 100% recommend, 100% will go back.

Wonderful food and helpful staff. We had the porterhouse with some sides (sweet potato is recommended!) and the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert.

The meat works in price per 100g and it’s all very good quality. Our waitress was happy to explain this and give recommendations.

Good ambience for dates and more intimate dinners, or parties with friends.

Lovely quirky restaurant, the staff were incredibly friendly and helped us pick out the food we should order with recommendations, and then gave us the sauce and sides they recommended for free. We were even given a free desert with a candle in as it was my boyfriend’s birthday. Would definitely go back here again.

Loved it! The only thing I would say is that you get less when you order the sharing platter for two.. people next to us just ordered a roast for one and got much more

Just the best Sunday Roast I've ever had in a restaurant. The beef was delicious, the carrots sublime and our younger son rated the Yorkies "almost as good as Dada's" which is high praise indeed. Staff were super friendly and welcoming, especially considering that our sons (15, 10) were the only children in the room. We'll definitely be back!

I LOVE Blacklock, if I hadn't have been to the Shoreditch one before then this would have got 5 stars for everything, thats the only reason it mainly got 4 stars. It wasn't as good as Shoreditch branch in all aspects. It was still fantastic, but some of the roast was cold and the staff weren't as quick! I still love this place and Blacklock is the only restaurant I can now go to for a roast, because no where else now comes close

Turned up 10 minutes early...no table. Told to go to the pub next door! Service was good but sadly the food was very salty and below expectations. Very dark.

I have been to Blacklock a number of times and literally cannot fault it. The atmosphere and music was brilliant. Food and drink exceptional, as always. And the service was second to none. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived - knowledgeable about the food and talking us through everything.

The hostess (blue hair and amazing nails) was so talkative and immediately put us at ease talking about the show we had just been to see. My mum mentioned that it was a birthday treat for her and what was soooooooo lovely was that later in the meal, as had finished the mountain of chops and were having one final drink, a dessert came over with a candle in it and the staff sang happy birthday to her. It wasn't planned, I hadn't requested it but it made her feel so special. It's small touches like that, going above and beyond, that really shows how much people care about their work. The cheesecake was delicious by the way.

I cannot recommend Blacklock enough, and I know I will continue to be a loyal customer for the years to come.

this place had been recommended to us. We booked for my sons 18th birthday. They were very welcoming and friendly. The waiter explained the menu to us giving us recommendations. He was spot on. The food is amazing, the service great they even surprised us with a massive bowl of cheesecake with candles on and sang happy birthday to my son. My husband said ‘best meal I’ve ever had’ 10/10 and thank you to all the staff.
