Great Food, super service, fast delivery per-theatre, next to perfect
Sunday lunch was amazing. Yorkshire puddings to die for and roast potatoes as crisp as they get! Beef, lamb and pork - succulent and plentiful with vegetables underneath.
Cocktails reasonably priced and delicious. Service exemplary! Atmosphere great.
Six people at lunch, two traveled from Germany and two from Mumbai for this wonderful experience. Just as good during the week for their meat feast!
Best Sunday roast we've had outside of home. Have booked for June already. Roast potatoes amazing. Meat and Yorkshires perfect. Throughly enjoyable experience. Staff great super service
Cannot fault this place! Been here once before & loved it equally as much. The food is to die for, the service is excellent and the overall experience I would give 10/10. I will no doubt be coming back again and again!
Consistently outstanding in all aspects. This is in my top3 favourite steak houses in London.
Sooooo good! The food is unbelievably tasty no wonder it’s hard to get a table. Really worth the wait. The staff are awesome as well. Highly recommend
Simply put the best sunday lunch in the country! I've been several times and it just gets better and better. The food is superb as are the staff.
This was my second time at Blacklock. Perfect for a pre-theatre meal. Get the “all in!” It’s a lot of food, but worth the effort.
Consistently excellent. Have been to Blacklock on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing (always go for the all in and cheesecake if we can fit it in), service exemplary and they always play the best music. Not being able to book past 6pm is quite annoying but everything else makes up for it.
Really fun spot with creative and deliciously prepared food and cocktails and young, hip and friendly staff
Absolutely brilliant night at Blacklock. The food was genuinely some of the best I've tasted, nothing at all like Michelin-starred-good presentation-poncey food, this was good old fashioned big pieces of meat, brilliantly seasoned with exceptional service. The chips were the best I've ever tasted, the cheese cake was delicious and I cannot fault the evening one bit. 10/10
Food is delicious and the service is excellent, my second visit and I’ll certainly be back.
Great find for this basement chophouse. Lively scene with excellent steaks and a great value!
We go every 3 months. Don’t know what happens in between those visits but I think work and sleep. It’s immense
You'll never want to suffer another average pub roast again. Blacklock do HANDS DOWN the BEST sunday roast you'll eat outside your own home. Book it now.
The second time you go somewhere is always a bit nerve wracking... Will it be as good as I remember? In this case YES! The Sunday roasts are amazing and I could probably drink a pint of that gravy! Highly recommended
I have eaten at Blacklock a few times before and decided to take my wife and friends for her birthday. I love it there. Great hidden gem in central London. The food is amazing if you love meat, great wines and the service is spot on. Also, great background music! I just love the ambience of this place. Very few tourists and amazing value for money.
We were looking for a non chain restaurant for a pre-gig bite. Blackdock appeared with favourable reviews on several food sites so we booked at table for 18:00. Booking here is a must, it is very busy and plenty of people looking for a table with no booking were turned away.
The restaurant has a very unassuming entrance and is conveniently located in the heart of theatre and gig land. You descend into a cosy basement, where the friendly staff soon get you seated. The service was exemplary, prompt polite and knowledgeable of their menu and drinks list. The menu itself is a little different and the staff will take time out to explain all the options and make suggestions for first time diners.
We went for the house special "All In". This includes skinny chops of the days meat, pre-chop appetisers/starters and a choice of two sides. This is ample for two people.
The appetisers were great, unusual combinations with fantastic flavours. They were also light enough not to interfere with the oncoming feast!
Main course was a plate of 8 assorted meat chops on a bed of flatbread there to soak up the juices. These were cooked and seasoned to perfection. What looked like a mountain of meat that we could not possible finish, was soon devoured leaving just gnawed bones. The bread was wonderful and almost melted in the mouth. The sides ,of pork fat roasted chips and winter salad, proved the perfect compliments.
Luckily we manged to share a slice of their renowned cheesecake, I say slice but I mean generous scoop in reality. this is the best non baked cheesecake we have ever had and almost worth a visit on its own merit.
That duly dispatched we paid the very reasonable bill, which included 12.5% service charge.
A wonderful meal enhanced by gregarious staff and atmospheric surroundings. We have been back already and will be taking friends next time.
Thank you Blacklock
Really Enjoyed it!
I went here for a catch-up with a relative early on a Saturday evening. They have quite a slick system going on for reception/seating/ordering/bill/coats which was seamless. They seem aware that many customers are 'pre-theatre' diners and are on somewhat of a schedule.
We shared the big platter thing which comes with some of everything. All the meat was delicious (the lamb cutlets especially so!). For sides, we had, chips, sweet potato and kale & Parmesan. The chips were standard, the sweet potato was nice at first, but the overpowering herbs made it become sickly after a few bites.
Can't comment on dessert, but would definitely go back! :)
Meat feast! Had the chops and the porterhouse steak. Everything was perfectly cooked particularly the steak. Highly recommend. Brilliant waitress.
Would thoroughly recommend Black Lock, food is great, service is brilliant and the cocktails are only a fiver! Well worth a visit.
Really delicious... always lively, great food, great atmosphere
Staff were top class, meat feast was unreal, the bill gets away from you with the added extras or add ons to the meal but It was a great feed!
Very good meal and attentative friendly staff. Meat was cooked to perfection.
Location was perfect for pre theatre meal and will go again
Pre theatre dinner it was delicious
Fantastic experience - loved it from start to finish. Go!
The best roast I’ve eaten in London (and I’ve eaten a lot) outrageously good meat and epic portions
The staff here are really friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and the price was amazing for a restaurant in central London. 5 Stars.
Meaty wonderful goodness. The chop deal is pretty amazing and worth it!
The meal surpassed our expectations and we had very high expectations, everything from the food to the service was excellent. We will definitely be back. The only negative - the portions of chips were not large enough for sharing, the chips are amazing though!
I went to Blacklock with two friends and we shared the "All in platter". The meat was cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious. We made the most of £5 cocktails and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to going back!
Food was absolutely fantastic. Could not find a single fault. Drinks very well priced for the area.
My friends and I have been to many steak restaurants in London over the last few years. As old uni friends we meet every quarter. This was a resounding success and has been voted 'top 3' by us out of all the restaurants we have been to. Definitely be up for visiting again.
Brilliant if you're craving meat and excellent service. Start with the 'All In' option if you want to try a bit of everything.
Great food and really great service. The lamb roast was the beat I have had
Amazing food, cheesecake is a must! Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent service.
Marvelous establishment with great value food and drinks - yum!
Love this place, this is my 4th visit and it never disappoints. Chops are amazing.....love the all in option! Great gin cocktails amongst others, grandmas spiked lemonade is definitely a favourite, relaxed atomosphere, great friendly and interactive staff, perfect for a friends get together or date night. What better way to finish it off than there amazing cheesecake......its a beauty!! Highly recommend you visit
Great food, great service, great value. A cross between flat iron and Hawksmoor. Would recommend.
This is my second time in Blacklock, and the first time for my family. I love the simplicity of the place. The functionalindustrial type furniture teamed up with lovely crockery (mint teas at the end of the meal served in vintage cups and saucers). All the details are thought through.
We had a porterhouse and a prime sirloin to share between 4 of us, with starters and sides including beef dripping chips and braised baby gem lettuces.
Every dish had tons of flavour, and the meat was cooked perfectly to our taste.
The waiters are very knowledgeable about the food, and are also really friendly but laid back - not in your face.
It's busy and quite noisy but that is because there is a lot going on and a lot of people around enjoying the food. Great ambience.
Looking forward to trying it out for a Sunday lunch, or a daytime burger.
I can't imagine anyone being disappointed.
