Father’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re still looking for the perfect gift, look no further than Blacklock.
A modern version of the Great British chophouse, famous for its chops, slung onto charcoal grills and scorched using a 200-year-old clothes iron from the Blacklock Foundry.
This steakhouse restaurant is known for its award-winning Sunday roasts served with all the trimmings, including Blacklock’s legendary gravy; and its glorious White Chocolate Cheesecake.
We love that all their ingredients are sourced sustainably with a selection of lamb, pork chops and beef steaks that are dry-aged up to 55 days. Their ‘particularly good at lunch’ menu offers a classic steak sarnie at an affordable price.
For drinks, choose from wine on tap, beer or cocktails including Negroni, Old Fashioned and a signature Cherry Bomb made with raspberry liqueur, amaretto and Branca Menta.
Visit their newest branch in Covent Garden in an old listed building that once housed the King’s Coachmakers on Bedford Street. Go on, soak in some history!
Best for: Sunday roasts almost as good as mum’s.
