Steak
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.

Our first time here. We felt very well looked after. All of the food was amazing - the steak (obviously), the chips, and sweet potato. The team were top drawer.

Easily the best dining experience every time! Such amazing and friendly staff, fantastic chefs and the best meat in London!
If that doesn’t make you want to go, the £5 cocktail list sure will!

This is arguably the best Sunday Roast in London.

Normally (we have been three times now) this location of Blacklock has been the best. But, understandably you have to book, which makes sense given the popularity.

Our most recent visit was no exception from greetings to be seated and served. All timed perfectly. Nothing is too much trouble for the staffs.

I arrived early and was seated and my dining friend arrived shortly.

We ordered one soft drink and (eventually) two beers - my pal drank the Cornish Blacklock beer. He is from Cornwall and appreciated the gesture.

No starters but straight to main event, 55 day aged beef rump with all the trimmings and horseradish; exquisite just how I remembered from previous visits.
I managed to finish all of this and even had room for cheesecake and dessert.

Believe it or not, not that overfilling and the tank was truly filled at this point. The cheesecake arrived with berries and I ordered a black coffee. A perfect dining experience.

Price-wise it's very well priced for London. Everything represents good value with atmosphere, staff and quality of food/ingredients.

Pay a visit, you will not be disappointed!

Food was excellent except my wife's steak was undercooked after explaining exactly how she wanted it. Her steak was cooked further which was perfect for her.
My other concern is the service charge. I understand that many restaurants in London charge around 12.5%, but I always thought this was too much and I'm never certain of course if staff fully benefit from this charge or it just gets absorbed into the venue's accounts. I'd be far happier if there was a clear statement on the menu that ALL service charges go to ALL staff and that the maximum service charge should be no more than 10%.

Both food and service were exceptional. The place is a really nice size, meaning the staff are attentive but not overbearing. All staff were friendly, professional and extremely helpful. Me and my partner were not a fan of the all in starters (I can appreciate they were delicious but too posh for us!) so the waiter offered us some free sauces which was a nice touch. We did the "all in" and would highly recommend, great offer and all food amazing!

We had the sharing platter for 2. It was comprised of 6 mini crackers with a small bite size topping of various flavours which were ok but nothing to write home about. The plate of chops served on 2 thin slices of bread were disappointing. There were 6 thin chops of varied quality with 2 small sides. Not great value for £22 per head.
The service and ambience however was great. Would give it another go to try something else on the menu if there wasn’t so much else on offer in Soho.

Really excellent service of amazing food. Top quality meat, and the sides were delicious. Can be pricey if you aren't sharing, but great options for all budgets overall. Favourites: the bread and gravy with pork belly, and Kels orange soda to drink.

Good value for money and a great place to eat. Was welcomed by really friendly staff who were attentive and made you feel like you were friends. Only critism is that some of the meat in the All In deal was quite salty but they keep your water constantly filled. I notified my server about an allergy when ordering and then had the shared starter served to find it had my allergen on it. When I mentioned it when paying, I was just joked with about saving room for my mains. Would definitely go back though as the food was ridiculously good!

The food is delicious and the staff is great. The flavour of the meat is wonderful. However, they need to decide if they are wearing a mask or not. Wearing the mask half way or removing it to talk to the customers does not make any sense, as those are the moments when they would need to wear it to protect themselves and others. Also, the size of the meat is not clear. We have ordered a 750grams of prime rib and what was served was definetely less than that. I know meat loses.weight once is cooked however if you have a basic knowledge you can see what it has been served to you. I guess you should find a way to weigh the product in front of the guest to have more transparency?? Staff is attentive and it is worth to try. Meat is from Philip Warren.

Cannot rate Blacklock highly enough. The food was insanely gorgeous, the drinks really complemented the meal and overall it was really good value for money. We splashed with dessert in the end so overall a real treat. My partner and I had the 'All In' and glad we did because we got to try a bit of everything including the appetizers. Staff is super friendly, they made us feel welcome and despite rocking up way earlier than our booking they were unfazed and found us a comfy table. Will definitely go back, what a meat feast!

Excellent food at a top restaurant. I would not recommend for vegetarians as this is mainly a steakhouse. There are options for non meat eaters. I however, didn’t try them so can’t comment.
Good wine selection as well

Shame as booked this due to previous reviews. Food was tasty but luke warm, the only thing that made it slightly hot was the fresh gravy and cauliflower cheese. Disappointing.

Eat traditional Sunday lunch here followed by homemade cheesecake.

Very good standard of a traditional British meal and extremely reasonably priced.
