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. Do sign up to our newsletter to keep up with every step of the journey and to ensure you’re first in line for Soft Launch bookings!

Housed in a former Soho brothel and the notorious “Le Reims” lap dancing club. Like much of 1950s Soho, Great Windmill Street was infamous for it’s activities of the night as well as the Nosh Bar, a salt beef institution, which for 40 years was a local favourite for a mix of celebrities du jour, Soho showgirls and even the late A.A Gill. The atmosphere is fun and true to our Soho heritage, yet we still catch the occasional former punter descending the stairs before hastily retreating realising it’s not quite the same establishment they frequented in the 90s.

Restaurant information


We warmly welcome walk-ins from 6pm, Monday-Saturday. Do pop in and we’ll get you your table as soon as possible. If there is a wait for a table, we’ll do our very best to make it as short as possible, and you can grab a sharpener in one of our local favourites while we get to work on it for you.

With roasts served all day Sunday, we tend to get booked up months in advance. So if you’re in the neighbourhood and fancy popping in, we’ll do our very best to accommodate you, but please be aware we cannot guarantee a booking as this will likely be due to a cancellation or no-show on the day.


We know that bookings are important for certain occasions and so take bookings at lunch and until 6pm for those looking to eat at a specific time. After 6pm we leave the restaurant largely free for walk-ins but do take bookings for groups of up to 8 people. Please email the restaurant if you’re looking to book a table for between 6-8 guests.
