Established in 1239 as a Dominican friary, Blackfriars’ rich heritage is the cornerstone of Newcastle’s historic past. Today, Blackfriars is one of the city’s most recognised restaurants and was voted the Taste of England Award in the North East England Tourism Awards 2013.
Blackfriars was opened in 2001 by Andy and Sam Hook following on from the success of the critically acclaimed Sidney’s Restaurant in Tynemouth. The restaurant is now run by a team of exceptional staff headed up by General Manager Ruth Hall and Head Chef Dan Duggan.
