A lovely Sunday lunch, food was excellent, great value for money. The service was first class.
The ambience of the restaurant itself was nice as in the decor I have been a few times before and the food has been nice. On this occasion the food wasn't even hot barely lukewarm and it was not up to standard the lamb was undercooked and tasted off and the belly pork was very small, chewy and extremely salty. The vegetables were watery and the dessert wasn't hot either and overly spiced. The dinners were mixed up i.e. some of my party had dietary requirements and these were not reflected in our order. The service was awful we had to ask for everything and we were ignored when trying to catch our servers attention, we waited 20 minutes just for a dessert menu even though we had paid for a 3 course meal we were never asked. We were also never asked if we wanted anymore drinks. We were first in the restaurant so it wasn't overly busy. A discretionary charge of over £10 was added to the bill in hindsight we should of asked for this to be removed but we just wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. Won't be returning anytime soon.
Lovely to be recognised immediately after revisiting a year and a half after getting married there. They do a lot of weddings so bonus points to management. Staff were attentive and food delicious as always, if slightly on the pricey side but as it was a special occasion we could justify it. Happy to return again :)
Lovely Valentines meal with the girlfriend. Something a little different from the norm. Portions a tad on the small side but definitely quality over quantity. Will definitely be returning soon!
Everything from entering to leaving was fantastic. Food was amazing and staff where really friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.
Lovely food from the Al a Carte menu with good wine ensured we had a very enjoyable evening with very attentive service. Will definitely go back.
Last weekend we had family over from Ireland and we decided to go somewhere lovely for a meal on Friday night. From the moment we got there, the waiter Matthew, was rude and made us feel very unwelcome. We ordered our drinks and food and about half an hour later we got our starters but still no sign of drinks. Eventually our drinks came just before our main course. My husband and I ordered the share board of steak which came tepid and at £55, we were very disappointed. Matthew continued to be rude throughout the meal and we left with very sour tastes in our mouths after paying a £300 bill. Would never return, would not recommend!
Good food, good service, knowledgable staff for food and drink and historic surroundings.
Excellent food. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Good pairing of digestif with dessert.
Excellent service and very enjoyable meal.
Wonderful old building, cosy nooks, staff friendly and knowledgeable.
Wine list good, tasty local beers, selection of whiskeys. No brandy or cognac though, which is a surprising omission for a restaurant of that quality!
Main course excellent. Desserts a little lacking in choice and imagination.
Ambience and lighting all perfect.
Music though - really not needed in a restaurant. However, it was low enough not to spoil conversation. In that case why bother?
Great food as always. Loved the opportunity to treat my family to a delicious meal
Superb staff - friendly, professional and efficient. Excellent food each time I visit.
Yet another fantastic experience. It was my birthday and they served me a complementary glass of prosecco and even put a candle in my desert with Happy Birthday written on the plate...staff singing Happy birthday!! Lovely touch to a great meal. Can't wait to come back.
Excellent service. Good value. Especially the early menu
Great service , welcoming , good food , good atmosphere.
Warm , friendly , nice atmosphere and above all the food quality was very good.
Fantastic service wonderful food great venue a gem in the heart of Newcastle
Great value meal. Excellent service throughout.
Assumed "fizz" given on arrival (without being asked) was complimentary, surprised to find it on the bill
Another outstanding lunch at Blackfriars. 3 course lunch special so much to choose from and a bargain at £18 each. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We have never had a bad meal here!
I booked the restaurant for my sister's birthday lunch and was very impressed with the friendly service and the food was really good. I'm always critical as my partner was a chef so we are usually difficult to impress! Everything about Blackfriars is to be recommended. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Lovely Sunday Lunch! I would recommend. We will be back soon. Thank you
Had Sunday lunch here. Veg cooked perfectly and a lovely selection and just the right size portion. Meat pink and tender. Only criticism, which I often having when eating out at various places for Sunday lunch, is the Yorkshire pudding. It was far too hard and crispy - usually a sign of being reheated. Staff were very professional and helpful. One of our best Sunday lunches.
Best starter I’ve ever had in my life (corned beef) and the sticky toffee desert was also really good. Was a bit disappointed in the main carvery meal. I had the chicken which was really nice but my boyfriend’s beef was practically raw and the Yorkshire puddings were really stale. The service was amazing but if I wanted a carvery again I’d probably go somewhere else
Great staff, food excellent, nice feel to the place, quite good value, first time and not the last, we Even got a anaversery card and drink on the house, loved it
Short but varied menu Quality of food good Service attentive but not overly so Wine list varied if a little pricey Overall a nice evening with descent food and service
Went for my husband's birthday, when we got there a birthday card was waiting on the table and we were given a complimentary glass of bubbly! The staff were really helpful and the food was out of this world! We will definitely return!
Amazing food. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely and the staff were great! Highly recommend!
Just love this restaurant 5 stars all round!
Delicious food, city centre but in a lovely historical setting historical interior which adds to the ambiance. Great service too.
Arrived early but no problem with being accommodated. Friendly staff , shown to table. Service was excellent with meals and drinks arriving at the right pace. Food of excellent quality with a good choice of wines. Food and wines could be on the expensive side but when the quality is right then it becomes acceptable
Pleasant unhurried lunch in nice surroundings. The food was good though the first course was like warm.
Superb food, service and location
We enjoyed our meal. The staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious. Thank you very much.
Couldn’t have had better service and food for my dads 79th birthday ! Thank you to the fab staff
Fantastic venue, service and the food was spectacular!
Always lovely food and great quality.
Amazing food, best chicken I've ever had. Service was faultless and our waitress went above and beyond for us. We will definitely be back!
Good value, good food but felt we were rushed through the courses and that the staff wanted us out. It was restaurant week so I do understand the staff were busy but this spoiled my friends retirement celebration somewhat.
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.
