About Blacklock Covent Garden
Expect steak and chops aplenty at the latest addition to Blacklock’s growing presence in the Capital. Situated in foodie Covent Garden, this latest site is in good company amidst the likes of Cora Pearl, Henrietta Bistro, Oystermen, Frenchie and Gloria. Blacklock Covent Garden is the fourth opening for the group founded by the former Hawksmoor employee turned restaurateur, Gordon Ker. Setting out with his first site in Soho, Ker was determined to bring a high calibre steak restaurant to London without the high prices customarily associated with such an offering. He scoured the country to find the best quality meat he could get his hands on before settling with a Cornish family whose collection of small farms in the south-west breed dry-age native and rare breed animals with a commitment to the highest welfare standards. Whilst Blacklock is predominantly a meat-serving restaurant – it upholds the belief that collectively we should be eating better quality meat, less often.
From the menu diners can choose from a wide selection of beef, lamb and pork cuts, varying in weight and price and served with a tempting selection of extras. The sauce list includes all the classic accompaniments as well as their infamous garlic marrow spread and knock-out chilli Hollandaise. From the sides guests can choose from the likes of beef dripping chips; coal roasted beets and goat's curd; barbequed baby gems with anchovy dressing; or plain and simple bread and gravy! Hungry visitors are advised to go ‘All In’ with pre chop bites, and beef, pork and lamb skinny chops piled on a charcoal grilled flatbread to share between two with a side each for just £20 per person.
Blacklock’s renowned Sunday Roasts are also unmissable for meat-lovers and claim to be ‘almost as good as your mums’. Expect top-quality meat cooked over open coals and English oak served with all the trimmings and a fantastic selection of optional sides to make a bespoke roast dinner that’s just to your liking.
On the drinks list you’ll find a good selection of affordable red and whites on tap or by the glass curated from the team’s travels abroad. Cocktails are also great value starting at just a fiver (the price of a zone 1 return) and with a selection of marginally pricier ones that include a donation to a charity for the homeless.
