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

It’s a meat-lover’s heaven. We ordered the “all in” platter. Starters were disappointing, nothing remarkable. For main, lamb chops were very good, pork chops were quite special, beef chops were dry and chewy. We ordered prime rib and rib eye as well. Both were very nice. However we really don’t like the service in that restaurant. Two female staff were careless and ignored customers. One denied we ordered the prime ribs while we waited very long and question them. It’s a hype place so don’t expect any decent service in that store. Avoid cheap beef.

Excellent and would both recommend and revisit. Only improvements would be a greater choice of starters and less waiting time for the meal to arrive.

Beautiful Sunday roast, as always, from Blacklock. The only tiny gripe is three of us went all-in and the majority of meat served was pork - there was no lamb and the beef slices were small.

We arrived approx 2 mins past our reservation, and turned out there is no table available yet. They told us there are table that is already in the process of billing and it will take approx 10-15 mins. We ended up waiting for more than half an hour until the table is ready. Since there is no chair/bar whatsoever, we had to wait outside while standing. We actually wouldnt mind waiting in line for a restaurant, but the fact that we did reservation since last month but still told to wait until we can be seated is kind of annoying, it made the reservation felt useless.

Food was ok i guess with average service (took us 4 requests before we got the check), but i am still very disappointed for having to wait despite having a reservation.

Great food and quality drink.

The service was a bit forceful for us to leave.

But this could be the demand of reservations etc.

It was outstanding. The £18 Rib Eye is the best steak i've eaten under £30 anywhere in the world. The cheescake is possible the best i've had. I was very surprised at the high quality of the food and staff. Wine list a bit pricey but didnt stop us having 5 bottles. Absolutely superb, will be back.

The most consistent restaurant out there, regardless of which branch you go to. Had the 'All-in' chops and took a colleague for her first visit and she was as impressed as I always am. Sides of Sweet potato, baby gem lettuce and the mixed veg followed by the cheesecake. All fantastic.

Great food. Exceptional value for the quality. You won’t get better in London, £20 for all in and £5 for an old fashioned is a bargain.

Service friendly, informal and knowledgeable.

The type of restaurant that is so good that you don't want to leave a rave review... but the staff is so great, you feel like you have to :) Good food without the over the top ambiance / bill.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our in-laws who had recently made a trip to London during Wimbledon. The food was absolutely delicious. It’s primarily a specialty meat restaurant. Steaks, chops, pork. It was cooked to perfection and so flavorful. The side dishes were great too. Service was excellent. Our server explained in detail what we were getting. And, we dined on Monday where we got the special! The pork belly melted in my mouth. We highly recommend it.
