Best battered fish ever !
16 December 2018
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.

Very nice historical location. Definitely need a booking, the dining area is quite small. Very good service, particularly for a pub. The food is ok. The prices are really good for London so this place is very good value for money. A bit noisy though, as all pubs.

Good location right on the river. Great quirky pub, interesting interior. Good beers and good pub food. Solid choice. Also, our waitress (we booked into the restaurant bit) was brilliant, very polite and on it.
