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.

Amazingly attentive and caring staff who genuinely seemed as though they enjoy their job.

Food was glorious and so well priced. Cheapest cocktails I've had the pleasure of drinking in London for a while.

You really can't fault it.

Outstanding service. Staff are friendly and helpful without being pushy.
Food was delicious. We had Prime Rib and Rump Fillet which were perfectly cooked and not over seasoned, which many places do. A good cut of meat doesn't need a pile of salt on it.
Very good value for the high quality of meat.
Can't wait to return on my next trip.

The service at Blacklock was amazing, however the experience was let down by the fact that my partner’s steak was barely edible due to the amount of gristle. It was very disappointing, given that we had booked here specifically for his birthday.

Really fun place. Excellent service from start to finish. Food good but not excellent - but on the other hand the prices are pretty reasonable. Great place to head for a fun night out if you don't want to break the bank.

The flavors I experienced while eating at Blacklock were some of the most delicious my taste buds every experienced in the history of my life. The gravy is so delicious that it is honestly a greater achievement than the creation of Michelangelo 's Sistine chapel or the discovery by Albert Einstein that e= Mc squared. Yes the food is that delicious. When you take a piece of the yorkshire pudding and dip it into the gravy and it hits your mouth, it is the most concentrated umami savoryness to have every hit ur mouth. It is like being hit by the umami bus by not looking left as those London sidewalk signs tell u to do before crossing Picadilly street to get there. You lose track of time and may briefly be forgiven for subconsciously staying mute to ur dinner companions as u wallow in the savory nirvana that is that gravy. You will cry, you will moan with pleasure, you will jump in your seat, you will bang your fist on the table when you first taste the food. You may even have a deeply existential crisis and wonder the meaning of ur existence on the planet. This food, like war, will make a believer of God out of every atheist. If everyone tasted this food there will be no need for the United Natione because there would be instantaneous unified world peace. I would like to just sit with a bowl of gravy and just a little spoon and eat it like a fine soup or better yet drink it like a fine 50 year old Bordeaux wine. Nay, not just drink it, but I want to be bathed in it, I wanna incorporate it in my love making, I want it on my tombstone when I pass. I actually would like to be buried with it just like those Egyptian pharaohs so that I may take the gravy to the afterlife. If Jack the Ripper or Adolf Hitler had tasted this gravy they would have not become the heinous men they came to be. The food is not mere food but really the food fit for angels! Ps the five pound Negroni is legitimately, shockingly, unsettling good value for London (or even the US where I am from)!

Sunday roast was well worth the wait!! Portions are very generous and service was impeccable. Peppe was our waiter and he was so attentive and friendly! The white chocolate cheesecake now has a firm top 3 place in my list of fave desserts - save to say we went home feeling very full! Can’t wait to visit again!

We had a great family dinner at Blackrock. The steaks and chops were fantastic and we couldn’t fault any of it. One main course was slightly late in arriving at the table and without asking the waiter took some money off our bill. Great evening and great value. Hardly surprising that there is a 3 month waiting list for Sunday roasts!

Food was amazing except for dessert very dry and burnt but they didn’t charge for it the service was excellent and value for money was brilliant
Because it was in the basement it was so hot which was a slight uncomfortable but overall this place is definitely worth a visit

Very noisy, didn't have everything on the menu and yes. I know it's a meat place but they don't have enough flexibility for vegetarians so that their meat eating partners can enjoy.

The Beefy Mary tho. Wow!

Being gluten free I often worry about how easy it will be for me to know what I can have and if there will be many options to choose from but blacklock is fantastic - all meats, all sides and most sauces - delicious!

We had a great night! Harry was our waiter and he told us he had been working in the kitchen in the morning and was serving tables in the evening! What a super amazing guy. I wanted to give each and every person a hug in here to thank them for what they were doing. I want to support the hospitality industry as much as I can! The prime rib was so so good! It was recommended to be medium and that was perfect. The sweet potato was so good. The chop sauce was just the best. Had the cheesecake for dessert and when I found out that it’s someone’s mum’s recipe, it made me love it even more! Genuinely had a great night and Matt (I think) was hosting that night and was also brilliant! Totally recommend and next time we will be back for a roast dinner on a Sunday!
