We’re giddy with excitement (alongside a dose of nervous pre-exam apprehension) that we’re opening Blacklock in Manchester this Autumn in a Grade II Listed warehouse.

Nothing says Christmas at Blacklock quite like the timely return of our Christmas Sandwich

This year,  the anticipated return of Christmas in a Bun took a slightly competitive turn, resulting in the re-creation of our classic staple, and our favourite, most lip-smacking recipe to date!

A veritable festive feast to make Rudolph double-take, it’s time to gather friends and family this holiday season and fill your winter boots with this Camembert-stuffed pork patty from Philip Warren topped with pulled turkey in gravy, spiced cranberry ketchup and crispy-smoked streaky bacon, all neatly nestled in a brioche bun.

Following our recent ‘Battle of the Christmas Bun‘ competition, this slight twist on our Christmas classic is the brainchild of head chef Damian from City. After multiple tastings and some incredible entries from all the restaurants, Damian and the City team just pipped the others to the title with this merry masterpiece, and we really can’t wait for you to try it!

Available to devour from today, you’ll be able to find this Christmas-cracker-of-a-dish across all good Blacklocks.

A little reminder;  we are ready to welcome you warmly this Christmas period before taking a little break with all the restaurants closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day so our teams can be with their friends and families.

Opening hours will differ across the restaurants, so check out our restaurant pages​​​​​​​ for a full rundown of dates and times to help plan your visit this holiday season.

DING DONG! Merry Christmas one and all.
