The Blackfriar Description

Book a table at The Blackfriar

The Blackfriar is featured in these Guides:

This isn't London's oldest pub - even though it's built on the foundations of 13th century friary, it only opened in 1875 - but this wonderfully unusual City of London boozer makes the Top 10 because it is London's only surviving art nouveau pub. A dark, deceptively roomy pub with walls depicting medieval life in distinctive, simplistic Edwardian style, The Blackfriar is a perfect architectural encapsulation of how London has continuously called on its rich history to inspire its cultural advancement.

“This is a pub for pub bores and I don't mean it in a bad way. It looks Great on the outside and fantasic on the inside, a one off. Push past the pubspotters and enjoy a few.”

"I found Majingos again... I used to go here when it was based at South Quay in Canary Wharf and has now relocated to Limehouse E14 in case anyone doesn't know. It was good in the old days and I am pleased..." Which venue is this?


"Very bad experience. Booked a table, before paying making sure that the table will not be moved at some point to make space. Looks like the woman taking bookings called Candice will promise you anything..." Which venue is this?
