Blacklock Shoreditch is set an old furniture factory in the heart of London’s East End. Expect the usual highest quality meat from Phillip Warren in Cornwall for unbeatable value and always lots of fun. The restaurant has a separate bar with a new bar food menu and our friends at Slowly Shirley, the New York cocktail bar, adding a slice of the Big Apple to our drinks list! Oh and our award winning Sunday Roasts, almost as good as Mum’s, are a thing here too!’

Very friendly staff however service was slow as the restaurant was at capacity. The food is delicious although our steak was over cooked that night. Noisy ambience. Having been to Blacklock before though and loved it can’t but recommend it! Will definitely be back.

I have dined at Blacklock Soho before and brought my boyfriend to the Shoreditch restaurant for his birthday. Everything, both times, was exceptional, from the staff to the food to the interior. It’s stylish inside, but welcoming and not pretentious in the slightest, so you feel comfortable enough to pick up a chop and gnaw all the nice crispy bits off if you want to, which you should totally do.

In short, I would drive all the way from Birmingham just to indulge my carnivorous tendencies here.

Food was unreal, couldn't fault anything and we ate a bucket load! Stopped being hungry 20 minutes before I stopped eating because it was all so delicious. Staff were fantastic, friendly, informative, helpful. £100 per head so not cheap but that includes drinks (lots) and service and to be fair worth every penny

Staff were a bit pushy with food & drink orders. Food was decent but not many options for the dinner service - just meat and sides. If you want a good steak this is your place but if you want a few different options then go elsewhere. FYI the sandwiches aren’t available for dinner

We had some problems with the food as there was a long hair in the starter. We also explained that we were very hungry and the waiter advised that we buy a steak to share. It wasn’t nearly enough for us both. However, another member of staff did get us extra chops (which were delicious and did the trick). The manager was very good and dealt with our problems really quickly and even took some drinks off of our bill, so overall we were satisfied. Our first time there, but we would attend again.

My pork was a bit dry (I wish I’d gone for the pie and mash as that look amazing) but everything else was perfect. All staff were really nice to my daughter and overall a good experience.
