Sunday Lunch
Casual
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

Neat little basement venue with a very friendly and helpful team of servers who carefully explained the menu in a very even handed way. Decent range of food - mainly meat as one would expect - and good value for money. Excellent washrooms kept spotlessly clean. Speed of delivery of food to the table could be improved and the room got rather cold although it was early November.

Simply no better restaurant in London. The food is outstanding but the service is another level. Incredibly attentive, lots of nice touches, it’s like it should be but not easy to find anymore.

We will be going back many more times.

Wrote a Google review so will summarise here too:
Went here for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend and it was incredible. Our table was fab, the food was exquisite - the meat (pork tomahawk and a ribeye steak on the bone) was melt in the mouth, chips and grilled anchovy Lettuce was amazing and the garlic bone marrow was to die for. Cocktails were really well balanced and tasty. The experience was amazing and made even better by our awesome, helpful, hilarious waiter.

Thank you Blacklock- we will definitely be returning,

From Phoebe and Rob

Really great food, I really think it’s better tasting than Hawksmoor. Only thing I didn’t like was the noise level. Oh, leave space for cheesecake for dessert, easily one of the best cheesecakes around.

The quality of meat was perfect and it was cooked exactly how I like it. The service was very good and friendly. There is a secret menu that is rather hidden and scattered around the walls and columns. The entrance to the restaurant looks ordinary when you walk in but it’s a really hidden gem once you are in. Perfect place for lunch and dinner.

This is a very good restaurant in a super location. It's a basement. The decor is sort of artisan, nice, tables are fairly close together, I was hoping to have a private chat so asked for one with a bit more separation which I got. The menu takes a bit of figuring, it really does, it is far from intuitive. The food was great and the staff were warm and friendly and good at their jobs. Strictly for carnivores.

Really nice meat and veg, pigs head on toast starter was incredible!! As was the black pudding and Yorkshire. Roast potatoes were nice but I’ve had better. Staff were very friendly. Want to come back here for their mon-sat menu

I always love coming back to Blacklock Soho, especially for a Sunday roast. I celebrated my birthday during the last visit and the team made it extra special :).

Fabulous staff, gave great advice and all looked to be enjoying their work. Friday afternoon when we went, and there was a good flow of people which gave the place a vibrancy. On recommendation from our waitress, we went for the’all-in’. Crackers laden with various toppings first, and then beautifully cooked meat arrived with our choices of sides. We requested no lamb, and were given more pork and beef steak, and washed down with the house lager. Simply, great service, food, and value. Will definitely return when next in London.

Fantastic food, definitely up there with the best roasts. Only 2 things- it was very noisy and every 20 minutes happy birthday was being sang. Also there is no chocolate based dessert on the Sunday roast menu.

All in all would recommend.

Whilst the service here was good, with friendly and attentive staff, we felt somewhat underwhelmed by the whole experience. Our steaks were ok but nothing special for the price we paid. If you are trying to compete with the likes of Goodman & Hawksmoor you've got to go the extra mile, but we both left feeling disappointed at the end of our meal.

Second time in 10 days that we ate here at Blacklock Soho...it was so good the first time. This time we split the prime rib, a 650 cut...along with sweet potato and the chicory salad. All delicious, though for those adverse to too red in the middle be sure to order at least one level above what you typically do. We did medium and it was quite red still, which is fine for me since that's what I like but too red for the wife who doesn't like any red.
Taste is great, though different than what you get in US with prime rib...this had more of the grilled taste!
After doing both the All In and this ala carte meal I think the All in was more enjoyable due to the variety and value.

We went for my husband's birthday and were treated like old friends from the moment we arrived. The maitre d' was superb as were our waitresses; nothing was too much trouble including bringing a beautiful dessert with candles at the end of the meal and a guided tour of the kitchen when my husband expressed an interest in the type of grills in use. The portions of food were extremely generous and very tasty and the cocktails were superb. We will be back!

Love this place but make a booking or they will turn you away. And, skip dessert because the best gelato in London is just a block away. Great staff and tasty chops, you can’t go wrong here if you are in the mood for meat.

Hands down the best roast I have ever had. Incredible service, I told them it was my partner’s birthday and we were treated so well (not that they would have treated us any less wonderfully if it hadn’t been!). Amazing little doggy bag to take away, great cocktails and incredibly reasonably priced. The perfect Sunday afternoon!
