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 food but pricing was a bit confusing so we paid far more than expected. Would go again though

For our very first English Sunday Roast we tried to pick the very best and we did! Meats were tender and tasty (beef, lamb and pork), drinks were excellent and I could have DRUNK the gravy. ☺️
The shining star of this wonderful experience was the lovely Lauren, who indulged our every whim and in the space of two hours, evoked my genuine affection (enough to plant an Italian-American hug on her on the way out). We are working to have another meal at Blacklock before returning home, both because the food was so good and especially to see our friend Lauren again before quitting the UK.

Food was delicious and portion was really good. Everything on the plate was cooked perfectly. Their service was top notch, full house but never once I had to refill my water on my own and their staff were very friendly. Would come back to try their other dishes!

Great place, great food & great service. The only thing I would say is the plates should be larger to fit all the food. Mine kept falling on the table because I didn’t have enough room on my plate

Absolutely wonderful Sunday Roast. Get the All Inn Roast. Our best meal in London so far & best part is drinks were also great but reasonable prices.

To be fair this is the first time in all the years I have been going to black lock that I had average service. Think the waiter was just too busy and awkward. The food was as good as ever, but was disappointed they didn't do anything special for the fact it was my mother's and aunts birthday. Will try not to hold it against them, hopefully just a one off.

I thought I'd give it a try again even though I didn't think much of it the 1st time. I'm glad I did - the food this time was a lot better. Would go back based on the quality this time.

Visited at 3 on a Friday -Fantastic-great service, amazing food. Pre-chop bites were sublime, as were the chips but the stars of the show were the steak and chops-will definitely be back

We came to celebrate my Mum's 70th Birthday and I picked the restaurant knowing it wouldn't be something my Mum would ever choose - but we all loved it. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic.

We each ordered the meat we wanted and had several sides to share for the table - we couldn't stop eating because it was so tasty.

My daughter has already asked when can we go back again.

It's not a first date venue, and it's pretty tough on the ears, but the food is so good, the service manages to be both cheerful and supremely competent and if you go all-in on the chops with a couple of £5 cocktails, it's excellent value for money.

Very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. We were two people and we chose the all-in option which had a selection of meats and sides. It was a lot of food but all delicious! Would recommend to book a table in advance as it seems quite popular.

The team at Blacklock really looked after us during a slightly raucous business lunch. They were flexible with the menu and pulled together a cheeseboard for us, and the combination of tasty meat plus the 80s soundtrack put everyone in a good mood. Would heartily recommend for friends and associates, not sure it's a date spot.

I got what I expected from a meat based place. Good quality well cooked meat with some sauces and salads to go with your meat. Good portion sizes. Some of the sauces were a bit underwhelming in flavour but chop sauce was my favourite.

Great day out, finishing with a fantastic meal at Blacklock Soho.
Excellent service and one of the best cuts of meat ever. We had the Porterhouse and Prime Rib. Cheesecake was fab too.
Even better value on “Butchers Price Monday”.

When you arrive, you might be taken aback by the narrow door and the stairs down to a basement. But don’t be misled. This place knows what they are doing! It being Sunday, we had to try the Sunday Roast and of course did the “All In” so we could try 3 different meats. It’s hard to describe how well prepared each one was. The vegetables were tasty and the Yorkshire Pudding was worthy of the gravy that came with the meal. Demi took such good care of us but both Lauren and Oliver made sure we were enjoying our meal. Hadn’t planned on going back before we go home but we’re going to find some way. This place is simply fantastic !,

Went for the Sunday Roast as it is very well-publicized online and was not disappointed. We took the All-In for 2 people and it was exactly the right amount for two very hungry people. Service was very friendly, and the food (and presentation) was spot-on. Will definitely be back!

We were excited to try Blacklock and had all expectation exceeded. Delicious meat, perfectly cooked, excellent sides and sauces and brilliant menu.

The people were the final piece of the puzzle - so enthusiastic about the restaurant and ready to guide you through the menu. Great wine on tap too.

Always good food and service. The chop sauce is out of this world. I would happily have a bowl of that and some bread if there weren't so many other temptations.
