Beautiful tasting food at Blackfriars, but such small portions. The food was adequate enough, but I would'nt say value for money. The drinks were very expensive and all in all we spent £50 including coffees. There was a 10% optional service charge too, but we paid it as we didnt want to make a fuss and say no. The staff were lovely and I couldn't fault the venue at all. Maybe we would come back but only on a very special occasion!
Excellent food and service, we will definitely be back. Went for my husband's birthday and we were given 2 surprise proseccos which was lovely. Great atmosphere.
Fabulous food at Blackfriars. The restaurant was incredibly busy with it being Friday of Newcastle’s brilliant Restaurant Week. After a bit of a hiccup following our arrival (we were seated for half an hour before anyone came to talk to us or take a drinks order) the staff apologised and dealt with it incredibly professionally - for which Iona deserves a specific mention - after which the whole experience was faultless. We can’t wait to go back and sample Blackfriars again.
Wonderful restaurant, food was excellent, though as it was restaurant week the menu was limited & the drinks seemed over priced compared to other times we had been to the restaurant when it wasn’t restaurant week.
Decent choice on the set menu with 3c for £15, the crispy pigs ears were a bit tasteless but the rest of the dish was nice, but the other starters were spot on. Everyone enjoyed their mains with the belly pork being uplifted with its bean and chorizo stew. One dish was missing new potatoes, this was quickly rectified with a plateful of them which allowed us all to have some.
Sticky Toffee pudding with lashings of sauce and ice cream was a great end to our meal.
Our main waiter, Nicholas was spot on, Great help with our wine choice giving us a few little samples to help us on our way which was really appreciated, along with plenty of knowledge on the menu and a nice bit of fizz for me and a birthday dish for my STP dessert.
Would we return, yes absolutely.
Nice meal and friendly service . We were on restaurant week but would go back another time without vouchers
Finest of places, devine food and attentive service
Dined with Newcastle restaurant week, food and wine excellent and knowledgeable servers, fab all round experience
Recommend to any one great place lovely food at reasonable prices and no loud music
Great food, service & a wonderful venue. But £5 for a cup of awful coffee!
Great offer and food for restaurant week, excellent service, a little loud considering the restaurant wasn't full but apart from that would go again!
Have visited Blackfriars many times and always enjoyed my meal but this time I was disappointed. The Lamb was in slivers and pink which I do not like. Too many flavours going on too for a roast dinner.
First visit due to a birthday gift voucher from a friend. Opted for Sunday lunch which was delicious. Every element cooked perfectly but personally, I thought the meat portion was small. I had sticky toffee pudding for dessert which was the best I’ve eaten and my husband chose spotted dick which he said didn’t seem like the pudding he remembered and tasted like Christmas pudding.
I would recommend Blackfriars to friends and would happily eat there again.
Outstanding food and service. Disappointed that there was one thing on the menu that was unavailable however was recommended items by the waitress and her knowledge was top class
We had the most delicious meal and fabulous service today! We were celebrating a very special birthday for my father-in-law and the staff went out of their way and added so many special touches (all of which are unprompted). They also made sure my young daughter felt included by bringing rose lemonade in a champagne glass to make a toast. Their knowledge of their food was outstanding. I cannot recommend this restaurant more! Thank you for making our family celebration so special.
Went early Friday evening in January for a birthday treat and it did not disappoint. Service was exceptional, food delicious and choice of drinks superb. I will be back and I hope frequently
This was the first time I’ve been to a restaurant like this and I will definitely go again! The food was amazing and the wine which the waitress recommended with each meal was fantastic!!
Interesting menu & quality was very good
Portions were a little on the small side hence questionable value for money
Guests were 1st timers who were very impressed
A birthday lunch was booked. We were welcomed with a complementary glass of bubbly. We opted for the three course special lunch and were not disappointed. The service was particularly good as our server, Iona, ensured we enjoyed our experience through her personality, attentiveness and recommendations.
we'll be back!
Excellent lunch for 3. Good set menu value. fantastic food, service and ambiance.
Birthday meal - lovely meal and great staff 5**
I ordered Fishcake and Lamb ,my partner Beef --and the waitress suggested we order desserts then as the closing time would interfere if you are arestaurant that purports to be high standard then rushing clients to order 'due to time '' is not protocol
The waitress also suggested the Beef was cooked 'pink' and recommended 'well done' if my partner wished I thought --perhaps the beef had been overcooked and this was pre mitigation
Mains arrived --served both on SOUP bowls --obviously the flat dinner platters were ''in the wash'' -this resulted in ALL the vegetables ,meat and gravy in a mixed up mush and difficult to choose which to eat eat without a mess I tried a piece of my partners Beef and it was TOUGH DRY and tasteless My Lamb was a little better-but nothing outstanding I did not make any comment as this was a special occasion and I was reluctant to spoil it by having a discussion
Bill --£49.06 --which inc 10% service charge --again I was not going to create a scene by querying it --only on return do I see this as''discretionary'
1)If you are closing at a certain time then you should state that --my understanding is LAST ORDERS are 1600
2)Don't rush customers into ordering desserts BEFORE they have eaten their Main
3)If you have overcooked BEEF then dont try and palm it off --Bin it --or make intoBin it --or make into something else
4)Dont just pile the mains onto plates that are devoid of surface area to take it --I can do a better job of presentation at HOME --thats WHY I pay to go to a restaurant -
for ambience ,service and presentation
5)Dont add service charge as a discretionary item --it is OFFENSIVE and in my view too much -as it can spoil an otherwise good experience --if service tip is left to
customers discretion --then staff are more motivated to provide good service and improves /adds value to the psychological contract
The only issue anyone in our group had was that the room was too warm - otherwise, all positive feedback from my 7 guests.
We went to Blackfriars for lunch to celebrate my birthday. We both had the 3 course set menu and the food was excellent. The staff were attentive but not overbearing, and the setting just added to the experience. Would go back!
Food excellent service first class
A superb venue for any form of occasion - unique and intimate.
Really delicious food with excellent service. The cocktails were lovely too. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal out and will definitely be back.
Once again a fabulous dining experience from beginning to end. The staff and food are of the highest quality. Matt was one of our waiters today and his friendly yet professional nature shone through. We both opted for a new chicken dish on the set lunch menu, chicken with black garlic glaze, and this was ultimately one of the best chicken dishes we have ever had. Yum yum. Many thanks for another brilliant meal.
Lovely place to celebrate birthdays
Food is gorgeous
Our first time here and wished we’d been here sooner. Everything about our dining experience was first rate. Will definitely be back on our next visit to the north east.
We went for the early bird set menu, plenty of choice. Quick, professional, polite service from all staff. The food was amazing! Presented lovely and so so tasty! Great value for money. We had a lovely evening, we will definitely be returning.
All the food was lovely except the vegetarian food which was really not good.
As always, a lovely New Year's Eve dinner, with very good food and a cosy atmosphere.
We had a brilliant New Year's eve meal. Gorgeous food. Lovely wine. Great ambiance. And what an amazing place right in the centre of Newcastle. We will be returning many times I would think. Loved it
Ideal for that special occasion, my partner was well impressed & is looking forward to returning in the near future for his daughters graduation
Lovely experience. Fantastic food, beautifully presented and nice ambience.
Perfect venue and never lets us down, it was booked as a special occasion for a 70th birthday and it was all just perfect. Thank you
Great food at this restaurant although a reduced menu for seasonal dishes. Couldn’t fault any of the food - it was all delicious!!
Great food quick service
Few fan heaters on the go which made it a bit too hot but staff quick to turn them off when we said it was too hot.
My husband and I booked here for a meal for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We viewed the menu online and although due to the time of year only the xmas menu was served we both found dishes we liked. The ambiance of this restaurant is perfect for a special occassion. The staff were friendly and attentive and our meals were tasty and well presented. We found it good value for money. The wine list was also varied and well priced.
