Blackfriars was voted the best restaurant in the North East England Tourism Awards.

Originating back in 1239 Blackfriars Restaurant is located in a medieval friary where it served as the refectory for the friars, making it one of the oldest purpose-built dining rooms in the UK.

The restaurant serves a classic, gutsy British menu sourcing seasonal produce from local farms and markets accompanied by a large award-winning wine list. It also has an adjoining 50 seat Banquet Hall for private parties and weddings. Above the restaurant is a Cookery School and Wine/Beer/Whisky Tasting Room. See web for events.

Blackfriars was awarded 'Best Sunday Lunch in Newcastle' by readers of the Independent, ‘Best restaurant in the North East/Newcastle’ by readers of The Observer and Metro Newspaper. It has also gained an AA rosette, inclusion in the Which? Good Food Guide, Hardens and Michelin Guides.

Catering
At Blackfriars we serve a classic but gutsy traditional/historic British menu using local and seasonal ingredients – often straight from the farm. There’s an abundance of great produce all around us; mouth-watering aged beef, old breeds of pork and lamb, delicious award-winning cheeses and ice creams, fragrant heather honey, really good organic vegetables, super-fresh fish and a host of award-winning beers. A well-priced Set Menu at lunch, a la carte menu in the evening.
