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

We went to Blacklock for the famous Sunday roasts - did not disappoint! The gravy was particularly excellent with very generous helping of meat (we did not go for the mega meat feast and instead had individual roasts - 3 x beef and 1 x lamb). The meat was clearly of very high quality and cooked perfectly. They also did not rush us out, which was appreciated, unlike a lot of other trendy restaurants which push you out the door after your allotted 90mins.

However I would say that the above also meant that the restaurant was a third empty when we left, which was slightly frustrating considering the 2 month waiting list for the Sunday roasts.

The sides were not mind blowing either (we had the peas and the root veg), and the veg, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding on the plate were fine, nothing too special - but then again it's a roast, you don't want anything OTT.

Cheesecake was fantastic, and a very generous helping. Cocktails were good. Definitely worth a visit!

Tasty food, good menu - drinks lacked value for money - would have preferred the meat a tad hotter on arrival - experience on the whole didn’t disappoint, would recommend beef, pork bell and both lamp chops!

Great food, the all in sharing platter was really good. The waiters were all v friendly & service was good. Chop sauce really nice. Cheese cake for pudding was so lovely. The ice cream sundae not so good, icy ice cream but good wine at a good price for a carafe & old fashioned cocktail for £5. We were a table of 2 in a little alcove. Very close to the table next to us and hard to get out to the toilet but we would 100% go again. I need to have the steak again!

Highly recommended! We were a table of four and all went for the 'All In'. Amazing chops and great value (I would have passed on a couple of the pre-chop bites). Service was amazing and ambience was what you'd expect for a highly regarded restaurant in Soho.

Best steak place for family and friends. Blacklock always fails to disappoint me!! It was literally good. This is the first time for my family and they love it. Pork loin. Pork Rib. Porterhouse. Their side salads. White Chocolate Cheesecake. The best in its price and atmosphere. The service was unbeatable. Staffs were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back again, especially on Monday.

In one word "outstanding".. I have no doubt in my mind that this is the best Sunday lunch in London, maybe even the world! We've been for steaks as well, forget about Gaucho and Hawksmoor, there is nowhere better than Blacklock, it's our new favourite place. Thank you Matt and the rest of the team at Blacklock, a truly memorable dining experience every time, we're looking forward to the next visit already!

We went to Blacklock for Sunday roast (the all in, with 3 different meats) for my brother's birthday. Aga, our waitress was really excellent - just the right level of attentive without being overbearing. She even put a candle in one the Yorkshire puddings, to helps us celebrate!

The food was excellent as always, with the all in providing us with more than enough food. And honest to God, I would quite happily just drink the gravy, it's that good.

When I go back (possibly next weekend!) I hope to get Aga again as our waitress as she was a real credit to the restaurant as she really rounded off the whole experience.

Echt een aanrader. Sfeer plezierig, bediening amicaal goed en attent, geluidsniveau goed. En het eten is heerlijk. De all-in geprobeerd en het was prima! Ook de side-dishes waren goed. Nog nooit zo'n lekkere gepofte rode aardappel gegeten. Door tijdgebrek geen dessert kunnen nemen, maar dat komt volgende keer wel. Want een herhalingsbezoek zit er zeker in.

We were really looking forward as it was my boyfriends birthday and waited months to get the table. The start - service was great, it was quite loud in there but we were generally happy. The food was nice - but our experience was tarnished by our server - he was too enthralled by the girls next to us and overly served them and forgot about us twice - drinks and dessert. I had my dessert alone and my partner who’s birthday it was much later. 15/20 mins late. Serving the girls before us again, it was quite embarrassing in the end. Bit of a disappointment as we were really looking forward to it. The rest of the staff were excellent - I also had to go up and ask for the bill as he clearly forgot too. Sorry to leave anything negative - as we were looking forward to writing a great one!

The only problem we had was we asked for more gravy & 1 it took long to come & 2 was very watery not the same as the 1st gravy so to say my wife & daughters were not happy at all & other than having more veg on the share plate it was a very enjoyable dining experience.

We went for Sunday roast and it was amazing. The only downside would be that I found a small stone in my meal, the staff were really apologetic and said it would have been from the veg. We were offered free dessert and coffee, which we probably wouldn't have had otherwise as we were so full! The food and staff were great. Slightly noisy and squished in the restaurant but the food made up for it.
