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

Excellent as always. The team went the extra mile to help us celebrate the 2 birthdays in our party, despite them being very busy (and possibly a little understaffed?). 100% recommend, 100% will go back.

Lovely quirky restaurant, the staff were incredibly friendly and helped us pick out the food we should order with recommendations, and then gave us the sauce and sides they recommended for free. We were even given a free desert with a candle in as it was my boyfriend’s birthday. Would definitely go back here again.

Loved it! The only thing I would say is that you get less when you order the sharing platter for two.. people next to us just ordered a roast for one and got much more

Just the best Sunday Roast I've ever had in a restaurant. The beef was delicious, the carrots sublime and our younger son rated the Yorkies "almost as good as Dada's" which is high praise indeed. Staff were super friendly and welcoming, especially considering that our sons (15, 10) were the only children in the room. We'll definitely be back!

I LOVE Blacklock, if I hadn't have been to the Shoreditch one before then this would have got 5 stars for everything, thats the only reason it mainly got 4 stars. It wasn't as good as Shoreditch branch in all aspects. It was still fantastic, but some of the roast was cold and the staff weren't as quick! I still love this place and Blacklock is the only restaurant I can now go to for a roast, because no where else now comes close

Good food and good value for money. It’s a popular place so book ahead. Every time I’ve gone it’s always been busy - a great sign that they are doing everything right

Turned up 10 minutes early...no table. Told to go to the pub next door! Service was good but sadly the food was very salty and below expectations. Very dark.

I have been to Blacklock a number of times and literally cannot fault it. The atmosphere and music was brilliant. Food and drink exceptional, as always. And the service was second to none. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived - knowledgeable about the food and talking us through everything.

The hostess (blue hair and amazing nails) was so talkative and immediately put us at ease talking about the show we had just been to see. My mum mentioned that it was a birthday treat for her and what was soooooooo lovely was that later in the meal, as had finished the mountain of chops and were having one final drink, a dessert came over with a candle in it and the staff sang happy birthday to her. It wasn't planned, I hadn't requested it but it made her feel so special. It's small touches like that, going above and beyond, that really shows how much people care about their work. The cheesecake was delicious by the way.

I cannot recommend Blacklock enough, and I know I will continue to be a loyal customer for the years to come.

this place had been recommended to us. We booked for my sons 18th birthday. They were very welcoming and friendly. The waiter explained the menu to us giving us recommendations. He was spot on. The food is amazing, the service great they even surprised us with a massive bowl of cheesecake with candles on and sang happy birthday to my son. My husband said ‘best meal I’ve ever had’ 10/10 and thank you to all the staff.

First time visit for a pre-theatre meal and we enjoyed it very much. Service was excellent and attentive by several members of the team. We were given suggestions of what to order and the best way to eat the three starters. Great. Food was very good and the basement restaurant was a great place to eat.

A fabulous Sunday roast with great wines on tap & by the glass & the staff are lovely & very efficient but it's very busy on a Sunday & consequently noisy. Very good value for money but you absolutely need to book.

You wouldn’t know this place existed on your own, I found it by looking up for the best Sunday roasts in London and I am so glad I found this place. It was quaint and fun. The music was the 80’s and so was loved by us all including my 17 and 15 yr olds. Will for sure come back next time we’re in London on a Sunday for the roast. My advice if you have 4 people definitely get 2 servings of the all you can eat type plate, the Yorkshire puddings make it look like a lot of food but it was not, my son was still really hungry after our food order as we only got one plate. But really good food and service as I say, we will for sure be back . Loved it here

It was recommended to me as well as the 'All in' dish which we went for. It was a risk as I took my wife there for her birthday. So glad I took a chance as she loved it. It more than lived up to the recommendation. We will definitely be going back!

Nous avons réservé dans ce restaurant un peu par hasard
2 familles de 2 adultes et 1 adolescent.
Le restaurant est dans une cave. Éclairage sombre et musique omniprésente.
On s’est régalé avec la formule IN-ALL à 20£ par personne. Pour les amateurs de bonne viande et super bien préparée.
Attention pour les autres plats le prix indiqué et pour 100 lbs l’addition peut grimper vite.
Je recommande
Service super attentionné.

Abbiamo cenato qui per capodanno e ci siamo trovati molto bene. Ci hanno dato il tavolo con 20 minuti di ritardo e per scusarci ci hanno offerto la birra. Da provato il menu all in a sole 20£ che si tratta di maiale, agnello e manzo cotti alla griglia e un contorno a scelta. Carne ottima, alcuni del nostro tavolo hanno fatto il bis!

The food was absolutely perfect, as always. The waitress was incredibly helpful and very knowledgable which was great. The only negative was that, although a table had been booked for a specific time - we were made to wait at the bar for our table for a lengthy amount of time (way past the time of our booking) which wasn’t ideal... especially as we were more than ready to eat!

Sehr leckeres Essen für einen fairen Preis mit TOP Bedienung. Einzig der Lärmpegel ist etwas hoch, aber bei so vielen Gästen auch verständlich. Falls wir wieder mal in London sind kommen wir wieder :)
