Steak
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.

Second visit for us, this time with friends. We went ‘All In’ for four persons, excellent. Side dishes just the right size to accompany the main event. Extra gravy to die for!
Pudding still amazing. Nice touch with our wine choice as we were given a couple to sample before choosing which red wine to have. Superb!

The food was excellent - would recommend. The service also was very very good. The drinks were delicious ad all of it was very good value for money- however, we were only given a little over an hour to eat our food and were not told about this until 15 mins before we had to vacate the table. We were unable to have desert and felt quite rushed.

BlackLock is a very energetic steakhouse in the heart of Soho. Pig on Toast as a starter was something incredible. However, the steak was a bit burned, and although the meat was delicious, it was not nice to eat pieces of charcoal from time to time.

I took my son to Blacklock for his special 6th birthday dinner and it was just perfect. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive from start to finish and they were else helpful with my son’s dairy allergy.

My first time. Really interesting menu with good breadth of choice, including on and off the bone beef, mutton, lamb and pork. I had a cull yaw chop (delicious) with grilled little gem and anchovy and the Garlic Marrow Spread. A lovely, richly flavoured warming winter lunch for an astonishingly good price. I’ll be back!

As good as ever. Dear God that Chop Sauce...! I would say that the All In option is really tasty, but can be a little over-cooked. Maybe just a matter of personal preference?

The wine was marvellous, so good that we had another, just to check the consistency of course.

I will be back soon.

Visited with three friends. The food was delicious, first time weekday dining and it lived up to the deliciousness that I had on the Sunday I have previously been.

Slightly not perfect score because the service was over the top. We just kept getting interrupted with ‘how is everything?’ Etc. From numerous staff, very attentive but was a bit OTT to the point of annoyance.

Never the less I can’t wait to go back!!!!

Very happy with the food, great steak with excellent fries and bone marrow especially but goodness the music was ill-chosen and loud while the decor is surprisingly bland.

Went on butchers Monday and got the prime rib to share with bread and gravy, kale parmesan, carrots with hazelnut, beef dripping chips and white chocolate cheesecake to finish the night. We had a great server who was so friendly and energetic. Food was tasty - definitely want to come back for the Sunday roast!

Good food at very reasonable prices, but at times the service was incredibly slow and at others overly attentive (slightly obsessive over still vs sparkling water). Plus the actual restaurant was quite cold.

Food was great for a Sunday roast but service was terrible. Stood on the staircase for 10 minutes before acknowledgement. Not even greeted, someone poured tap water from behind my shoulder and disappeared for 20 minutes, Eventually was served my food then after being there for less than an hour and still sitting with half a glass of wine I was told my table was needed back. Even when this was corrected I was still not offered anything else and I'm still waiting for a call "from the manager" as there was no manager that night apparently. Given the worst table in the restaurant, that probably shouldn't exist in the pandemic.

Really looking forward to dining at blacklock and it was terrible. Clearly don't care about solo diners.

If, like me you have watched the YouTube video's about this brilliant restaurant and go expecting to see a tower of food then prepare to be visually disappointed. However that is literally the only time you won't smile as everything else about Blacklock's is absolutely wonderful. It's busy and vibrant with outstanding service and the food is even better than we imagined it would be. We were a group of 4 over 60's and we had the all in for 4 with a side of cauliflower cheese and there was no way we were going to finish it all. Everything was cooked to perfection and considering it's location it was outstandingly good value for money and we would all definitely recommend the Sunday Roast.

Best burger, hands down. The pigs head starter and small bites are a must. The staff are super friendly and very helpful without being over attentive and intrusive.
Cant wait to check out their other locations.
