CHARCOAL-COOKED STEAKS AND WINE ON TAP: Blacklock set to open on Peter Street this autumn

20 March 2024 by Rhiannon Ingle

Brace yourself - there's yet another restaurant opening we can all look forward to when summer comes to an end.

Coming to a stunning Grade II listed building, formerly home to a textile merchant, on Manchester’s lively Peter Street in Autumn this year, Blacklock's new opening will mark their sixth restaurant and first outside of the capital. 

About putting a modern spin on the Great British chophouse, guests can expect a range of chops and steaks cooked over charcoal and all washed down with cocktails that follow a pip-to-peel philosophy and wines on tap. And, to bring each meal to a proper good end, Blacklock will be serving up their signature white chocolate cheesecake pudding which will be served tableside and straight from the dish, with a very generous 'say when' approach. 

Blacklock is excited to 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. 

And, of course, the Blacklock will bring their award-winning Sunday Roast to the table. Meat lovers can look forward to whole joints roasted over open coals served with Yorkshire puddings, duck fat roasted potatoes, seasonal vegetables and an unsparing amount of Blacklock gravy.

Founded by ex-lawyer Gordon Ker whose love of hospitality led him to open the first Blacklock in a basement in Soho in 2015, he commented “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. It’s so important for us to be in buildings with character and history, and this part of Manchester has that in spades.” 

Speaking of the eagerly-anticipated Northern opening, Gordon added: "I absolutely love the architecture in Manchester; the tiled basements, lightwells and stone frontages feel very us and 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."
