Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old electricity substation on the site of London"s oldest meat market. 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.

Went for lunch and had pork belly and lamb chops to start, they were good but would have benefited with some seasoning for my personal taste. We both had the burger which was good and juicy but again for me would have benefited with the addition of some salad to add some freshness. Sides we had the coal roasted sweet potato and chips. We also had 3 beers each which went down really well with the lunch. Blacklock is always good and special mention to the staff who were really helpful and friendly - happy they are back!

This is one, if not the best meal I have had in London. Kashia provided an amazing service and the team were very welcoming. The food is absolutely mouth watering! This place has definitely become a favourite.

Really enjoyed the meat here, the sharing platter is excellent! And a good atmosphere! Cocktails were excellent.

We did have an issue with one menu item as soon as it arrived and unfortunately the staff were quite unhelpful when we reported it to them, and didn’t offer to swap/comp it, which wasn’t a nice experience.

We enjoyed Blacklock at home over lockdown, but nothing can beat the dine in experience! Missed it a lot and we will be returning soon.

By far the best meal I’ve had in a while. Food was 5 star but the service was what really stood out for us. The waitress was so attentive and informative and nothing was too much We were treated to a free cocktail and starter due to it being my sisters birthday, and still can’t get over the generousity. She had the best time and I’m very grateful. Thank you so much Blacklock - we will definitely be back!

Hadn't been to this particular Blacklock before. Same unbeatable meat, a little bit louder in terms of ambiance but perhaps that's everyone excited to be back. Still my favourite chop house in London! Will be back!

Absolutely lovely food however only issue music was very loud that you couldn't hear eachother talk that well, in other parts of the restaurant was fine its because we were next to a speaker. DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF

One of the best meals I've eaten

We went to restaurant to celebrate my son and husbands birthday. My husbands steak was forgotten. Now apologies were given and price was taken
Off which was very good but it did spoil the experience a bit although the steaks were fabulous so we would come back to try again.

Everytime I go to Blacklock it gets better- the staff couldn’t be nicer, the food is some of the best I’ve had in london- particularly the roasts- and I’ve tried a lot of Sunday roasts.. can’t recommend enough.
