We are giddy with excitement to open our biggest restaurant yet in the heart of Covent Garden in an old listed building that once housed the King’s Coachmakers on Bedford Street.

    This place has a great atmosphere and an absolutely fantastic staff. We were recommended this place by many, and whilst the food definitely isn’t bad it just didn’t fully live up to expectations.

    Hadn’t eaten at Blacklock for a while and really struggling to figure out why - it continues to be outstanding and I won’t be leaving it as long for another visit. The ‘All in’ presents great value for money and again, proved to be delicious especially when paired with the amazing Beef Dripping Chips and Sweet Potato. Thoroughly enjoyed the Blacklock Pale as well. But sadly was running short on time for our theatre showing so couldn’t enjoy the delights of the Cheesecake.

    Great food and service was very good although the explanation of menu and how it works was so fast and 2 people on the table didn’t speak English. I have to mention that whilst I was waiting in the bar area having a drink I was served by a very friendly barman but unfortunately I had to hear one of the waiters being extremely rude and using very bad language! Not nice !

    Amazing. Just amazing. Food was immense, my partner and I we’re celebrating our birthday and we were so full up we didn’t want pudding. Our server couldn’t let us go without something to celebrate and brought out a dollop of cheesecake with 2 candles on it! We were so amazed! So kind!

    Outstanding service initially but was then let down by the follow on shift who didn’t really give two hoots about working or looking after us. Apart from that blip everything was great and would definitely go again. Just a shame to end an otherwise great experience on a sour note.

    It was fantastic that they allowed us to have a cake for a birthday on the table. Service was great and being at the restaurant earlier helped with the noise levels. The decor and ambience was great.

    Went to Blacklock for a good, quick burger and chips for lunch. Asked for the burger to plain, but ended up coming with sauce and pickles. Had to send it back. Unfortunately by the time the fresh burger arrived, the chips were cold. Kind of a disappoint. Burger was very good. Overall great place for a quick lunch.

    In an age of meat-free options, it was great to try a place that is pure carnivore. The food did not disappoint, the ambiance was lively - a little loud for my taste, but then I am in my late sixties, so that is a factor. The one thing that let Blacklock down was the very slow and inattentive service; it took us over half an hour to order our food, and only then because we had to hijack a passing waiter. All the staff were charming and friendly but boy, were they elusive.

    Slightly disappointed with the food following a fantastic dining experience at Blacklocks on Great Windmill Street. Service was a touch slow and not overly attentive, but biggest disappointment was the steak that we had as part of the 'all-in' platter which was extremely small, thinly cut and overcooked.

    Service could have been better, we often had to physically grab someone to serve us as they would usually scurry past without any eye contact. It took us a while to order drinks after sitting, so took advantage once we had the person serving us at our table. Food was good. The festive burger was quite tough to eat the turkey was very chewy. Sixth rib eye was good, and the sides were great.

    Great food and atmosphere. However, we had booked and had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, then wait even longer to be served. Once the food did arrive it was very delicious, and reasonably priced for a central London restaurant.
