The restaurant is located in the basement area which is spacious and, dare I say it, slightly hipster (worst offender = wine out of tumblers!) But don’t let that deter you as the food is of a good standard and the atmosphere is unpretentious and welcoming.
I visited with my boyfriend and we went for the “all in” which included 3 pre chop bites (mini starters), all of the day’s skinny chops and 2 sides for £20pp. I would definitely recommend doing this for your first visit as it is an opportunity to sample a variety of meats for a decent price.
Following the chops you may feel like you couldn’t possibly manage a dessert but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE think again. Blacklock only offers one dessert (again, don’t be deterred) – it is quite possibly the best cheesecake I have ever had. The waiter served us from a huge tray bake…I will willing him on to cut me a bigger slice!
Blacklock is an ideal location for a relaxed evening on a moderate budget.
