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

We loved our time at Blackocks. The staff were passionate about the food and service provided and made sure our needs were catered to during our entire booking. The staff made us feel welcome and educated us on the background and thought behind the meals provided. I would definitely recommend Blacklocks to all looking for a quality meat-full night out

Absolutely fabulous experience for a low-key but tasty 50th birthday lunch. The menu is about doing what they do best - great chops and various cuts of meat with provenance and flavour. We had the All In which is perfect for the indecisive! Sides were delicious, meat was amazing, surprise cheesecake with a candle was to die for. Our waitress (Aga) was brilliant and made the whole thing even more special. The place is quite small but with a lovely atmosphere and exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend! We can't wait to go back.

We went to Blacklock for my wife's Birthday. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful, especially Ben who sat and talked us through the menu.
The quality of food was outstanding, with a mixture of succulent and tender cuts cooked to perfection. This was accompanied by side salads with just the right acidity and very nice chips.
When confirming the table booking, I only mentioned in passing that it was for my wife's Birthday, but they had made a note of this and treated her to a desert, with candle.
The ambience in this restaurant is quirky and pleasant. A wide selection of drinks and all at a reasonable price.
We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to friends.

Without a doubt the very very best Sunday lunch in the history of Sunday lunches.. Try the "All In" it's a meat-tacular of Beef, Lamb and Pork with liquid gold aka gravey, awesome roasties, plus luscious veggie change, served by an amazingly attentive, professional and fun front of house staff. Made another reservation before we left, says it all, love it!!

Fabulous food if you are a meat lover. The bacon chops were exquisite and so was the actual 500g steak we ordered. An extra zing was added when we took the chips fried in beef drippings. Yummy all the way!!

Had a wonderful time - cocktails are lovely and the chips are to die for - we were going to go for the £20 menu but then decided to select our chops and so glad we did.... sauces to accompany them are a must and the cheesecake is a must. I’m definitely going back... v soon! All the staff were excellent

Thanks for another great meal, Blacklock, and to Ben in particular. Apologies again for booking the wrong night (we showed up on Thursday; we were back in Denver on Friday so that was my error....) Thank you for accommodating us without any fuss. Food is always amazing. Will be back.

Excellent venue, incredible staff and management. Everyone was helpful, polite and couldn’t do anymore to make the experience enjoyable. Great cocktail menu and they make a mean old fashioned! This is only beaten by the meal which was sublime, amazing quality and beautifully cooked and presented. Highly recommend anyone to visit - if you’re not in the area make the journey as you don’t want to miss out!

I’ve been to both branches of Blacklock and both have been fantastic. The foot is fantastic and while not cheap, extremely good value for what you get and where they’re located. The service was very good and the staff genuinely seemed to want us to enjoy ourselves, which unfortunately is not always a given in London. Recommend.

Book plenty of time in advance, and make sure to order the 'all in'. Delicious.

My partner who is a type 1 diabetic and can't eat carbs as this spikes her glucose levels specifically asked if certain items on the menu were cooked with a batter or bread/wheat ingredients so she could avoid such items. When the food arrived it was covered it batter and bread, which was upsetting as she couldn't eat any of it and we specifically had a conversation with our waitress. The waitress's English wasn't that good and thought we were referring to fats. When we were asking about "batter", which contains harmful ingredients for her the waitress thought we had said "butter", we specifically said that because she was a diabetic that carbs would be an issue not fats. All this was very upsetting and really effected our experience.

Great sunday roast dinner, fabulous relaxed service. our table wasnt ready when we arrived, but they kept us entertained for 15 minutes and offered a free drink whilst we waited. The food is tasty and there is plenty of it. The only thing that holds it back from 5 stars is the ambiance - its a little bland in its fitout, and lots of hard surfaces make it feel a little unwelcoming. But I would be back in a heartbeat.

The beef was tough and difficult to chew. On the other hand, the Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, gravy, and green beans were all excellent. After expressing our disappointment with a manager, he kindly comped us for the meal and invited us to come back. Very good customer service after a disappointing meal.
