Blacklock will open a restaurant in Manchester later this year marking the successful chophouse concept’s first site outside the capital.

Slated for an Autumn launch, the restaurant will be housed in a Grade ll-listed building on Peter Street. 

As at the group’s London sites, guests can expect a range of chops and steaks and a focus on cocktails.

Blacklock will collaborate with new Northern suppliers to champion the best local produce, which will play ‘starring roles’ in brand new dishes to be introduced to the Manchester menu. 

“It’s long been a dream of mine and the team to open Blacklock in Manchester given its vibrant and bustling culture and brilliant food scene," says founder Gordon Ker. "It’s so important for us to be in buildings with character and history, and this part of Manchester has that in spades.”

“I absolutely love the architecture in Manchester; the tiled basements, lightwells and stone frontages feel very us,” Ker continues. “When a landlord asked what we thought of a basement hiding in plain sight beneath the bustle of Peter Street, I knew we’d found our perfect Manchester home.”

Founded in Soho in 2015,​ Blacklock now has additional restaurants in The City, Shoreditch, Covent Garden and Canary Wharf.

The currently five-strong group achieved B Corp status last year​ joining a global community of businesses ‘striving to prioritise purpose over profit’.
