Inspired by the original chophouses that sprang up across London in the 18th century, Blacklock champions premium chops, steaks, lunch-break-friendly bites and cocktails aplenty – with its meat all directly sourced from Cornwall and a waste-reducing Pip to Peel philosophy in place.

Now open in Frobisher Passage.
