The Blackfriar


The Blackfriar in Blackfriars London, just a short stroll from Blackfriars Bridge, Upper Thames Street and Fleet Street is a one of a kind London pub.

The extraordinary interior is filled with marble sculptures, mosaics, paintings and resembles a church. Arched ceilings and fireplaces make it very cosy and welcoming. Besides it's history of Sir John Betjeman saving it from demolition, this unique pub prides itself on its wide range of real ales and delicious food.

Seasonal menus make it a lovely place for a meal any time of the year. A dining area acts as more of a restaurant while the main pub is perfect for bar snacks and a drink. If you sign up to their online mailing list you can receive a free drink with any main meal. The historic atmosphere of this authentic pub makes it a great place for after work drinks or a family meal. Its popularity makes it busy at prime times so be sure to get there early.
