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.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly-featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the Blackfriar drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

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

    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!
