The original Blacklock restaurant which has now led to various different branches in different area of London, Blacklock Soho still strives to provide the highest quality of meat to Londoners. Blacklock Soho manages to provide customers with the feeling of being in a classic chophouse with an added air of trendiness, meaning that it’s a great spot to visit with friends for a mid-week meat fix, or to tuck into one of London’s most impressive Sunday roasts at the weekend.
Located on Great Windmill Street, the restaurant is based underground; this means that as soon as you pass through the main entrance, you head down some stairs to the warehouse-like dining room. Long communal tables, which are dimly lit from above, stretch across the space, and on blackboards are scribbled the cuts of meat which are available that day.
The menu is a carnivore’s dream with every cut of beef, pork or lamb that you can imagine on offer, with their fantastic chops the headline act. If you can’t decide what to try, there’s the option to go all in for £20 per person and that gets you pre chop bites, followed by beef, pork, and lamb skinny chops, all served on top of a charcoal grilled flatbread, and a choice of sides. The sides on offer include wonderful beef dripping chips and barbecued baby gems.
On Sundays it’s all about their award-winning roast where you can also go all in, and have a pile of roast pork, lamb, chicken and beef served to your table, with all the trimmings you could possibly want, and of course a jug of thick gravy. Puddings include a thick cheesecake served at the table, as well as a classic bread and butter pudding.
A relatively short but sweet wine list is accompanied by a selection of brilliant house cocktails which cost just £5 each.
