I was beyond excited that my friends wanted to gather at Blacklock in Soho, but wait for it a former underground brothel. Vegetarians turn your head away now, Blacklock is known for one thing. They’re piled up meat chuck on a plate in the name of chops and if you love chops this place for you.

Located in Great Windmill Street opened by Gordon Ker, who use to work for Hawksmoor. It is named after the antique irons they use to press the meat. On the menu, you have skinny, big chops or steak sandwich. You can sling some cocktails for a fiver served on a little cart.

There were 7 of us and we decided to go for two portions of “All in” for £20 with all of the daily skinny chops. We ordered rib bone sirloin as an extra to share with some extra sides.

The “All in” option comes with pre-chop bites a trio of crackers topped with egg, a curl of anchovies, duck rillettes and apple kimchi, cheese, and pickle.

The chops came piled on a plate, all cooked from a handmade charcoal fired grill, meat seared to crispy brownish red whilst the middle is tender pink. The flat bread underneath the chops is soaked up from all the meat dripping juices.


Now you know these guys know their meat, as the rib bone steak was utterly delicious. That cast iron browns up the outer layer of beef and it’s bloody pink in the pink and very tender.


Of course, you wouldn’t be eating these chops without some sides. Say yes to beef dripping hand cut chunky chips, and 10-hour ash roasted potato, along with charred courgettes. How can I not forget about the onions and gravy sauce, it comes insanely rich but tasty to pour over chops and sides.

We spent about £30+ each; it didn’t quite fill me up with two skinny chops, 2 pieces of ribs and sides. It’s best to go in two’s for All In to be worth its money, at least you can no reserve a table without that no reservation nonsense.
