An historic Art Nouveau Grade II-listed London pub, The Blackfriar was built in 1905 on the site of a Dominican friary, and designed by Arts and Crafts Movement artists H. Fuller-Clark and Henry Poole. Saved from demolition by a campaign led by Sir John Betjeman, the pub serves traditional British food in a warm, welcoming environment.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Blackfriar menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Blackfriar bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

The Blackfriar in London is a 3-minute walk from London Blackfriars Tube Station.

    The place is really cool and the fish and chips was very good (and generous). What I didn't like was the Italian waitress pretending to be English and talking to us in English for few minutes.. that wasn't funny at all.
    But I recommend going there!

    Great atmosphere in this old pub. Beautiful stained glass windows and good assortment of beers.

    The bangers and mash were excellent. My only complaint is that, since I could not eat all of my meal, I asked for a container to take the extra home with me and I was told they did not allow customers to take their leftover food with them. I thought that to be a waste of food and my money. I was quite disappointed, as I was looking forward to that for my next day's lunch.

    We had a good time. The only problem was getting a salad! We could have all the quinoia, endamame beans, etc., we wanted but a plain green salad was not available. Otherwise the food was good and the place is very interesting.

    Despite what appeared to be a booking error by Bookatable and how busy the compact pub was the Manager was fantastic and accommodated us and was extremely attentive whilst not being 'in your face'...the choice of gins and beers suited my party and the food was reasonable, although not fantastic. So pub gets 7/10. Manager 10/10!
