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.

The food was amazing and clearly explained by the staff. Their knowledge of the menu and products they had to offer was extremely helpful and detailed. The atmosphere was warm, inviting and busy. I’ll definitely be back and I’ll definitely recommend Blacklock to many of my friends.

Nearly 2 months on waiting list... but worth the wait. :-)
Lovely 2 person sharing roast platter. Gorgeous beef, huge Yorkshires, deliriously good gravy.
And an amazing Bloody Mary.

Plus, much better value than the Hawksmoor and super attentive staff.

Went for my hubby's birthday. Warm welcome on being met & member of staff asked wished my hubby a happy birthday (mentioned on booking form). Staff member who served us explained the menu as we had not eaten here before. We decided to have the "All In" with the roasted sweet potatoes & baby gems with anchovy dripping as sides. The food arrived promptly and was absolutely delicious. The staff member was attentive but not constantly at our table as we've had at other establishments. The atmosphere was lively but you could hear yourself talking. We will definitely be back again!!!

If you like meat ... Blacklock likes you! We went for the 20pp platter which allows you to taste a variety of the chops and meat with a side included. Tasty! We also ordered a bottle of red and thanks to the waiter for alerting us to the fact it was an organic wine. The funkiness would have been a surprise if he hadn’t... actually enjoyed it! It wasn’t our first time here and won’t be the last. Customer service is great

Delicious food, fantastic service. Only downside was the atmosphere - it was packed full, very noisy, very echo-y, so I had to shout to talk to the person next to me. Not great for a dinner where you want to catch up with friends.

Blacklock is truly amazing.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
They were great with my toddler and she was really happy at Blacklock.
The food was great, I loved the meat and the gravy was heavenly.
Both my husband and my cousin don’t really like having roast dinners in restaurants but both said they would go back to Blacklock.

Great roast for a Sunday, we were 2 people and gone for the “all in” which totally recommend so you have the opportunity to taste the different roasts. MUST leave some appetite for the white chocolate cheesecake.
Will come back for sure but needs several weeks in advance reservation.

Rather disappointed with my lunch - perhaps a poor choice, but nothing special - accompanying vegetable dish was also unappetizing - felt rather basic in creation.

Sadly wont be rushing back.

The restaurant is in a cellar, so no natural light, and the tables are small.
Pigs head (really it’s pigs cheek) as part of the small bites starter was great. Don’t be put off by the name.
We both had the rib steak. Mine was great but my friend’s was too chewy for him. The chop sauce was very tasty.
We didn’t have dessert.
We had a carafe of the Spanish red wine was good.
Service was friendly and knowledgeable and prompt.
£50 each.
We would go back

Fantastic restaurant where we really felt like warmly welcomed guests. Very good food, nice atmosphere and the service is brilliant as it acts perfectly to the needs and preferences of individual guests. In our case we got a warmly introduction for our first visit, perfect recommendations and last but not least conversations like being friends. Perfect! Overall the concept is young, fresh, focused, empathetic and in perfect harmony with the high quality of the food. Possible Improvement suggestion from a German client: Offer one or two sorts of “Schnaps” after the meal. Stomach would say thanks 😉. Looking forward to come back.

A friend and I went for a Sunday roast. The starter and the main course were very nice. Unfortunately we were a little bit disappointed by the dessert as we hoped the chocolate sundae to be a bit more chicolaty than it was, and would have appreciated a heads up that there was a bit of alcohol at the bottom of the ice cream. But other than that we enjoyed our meals. Definitely recommended for a nice Sunday roast!!
