Blackfriars Restaurant

Blackfriars is located in a 13th century medieval friary in the heart of Newcastle and was named the Taste of England in the North East England Tourism Awards 2018.

With its Dominican origins dating back to 1239, and a long and turbulent history that included a spell as a hostel for King Henry III, as a former inner-city monastery, Blackfriars is undeniably unique. The 80-seat restaurant serves guests traditional-British cooking with local seasonal produce often straight from the nearby farms and markets.

Located next to the main restaurant Blackfriars’ ornate medieval Banquet Hall seats 50 people for events and weddings and a cookery school and tasting room space for demonstrations and tasting events such as wine, beer, whisky and gin. We also have the cloister garden space outside, which hosts a seating area for alfresco dining in summer months for up to 16 guests.
