The splendour of Blackfriars’ ornate medieval Banquet Hall has been brought back to life following years of painstaking and meticulous research and restoration. The celebrated venue King Edward III used for receiving royal Scot, Edward Balliol, in 1334, boasts authentic and bespoke banners, chandeliers, wall coverings, stained-glass windows, reclaimed wooden screens, large oak dining tables and matching chairs, all created by local craftsmen.
The hall, which also has its own kitchens, bar and toilet, accommodates 50 guests on communal tables and is the perfect venue for corporate events, networking groups, functions, wine tastings, educational visits, private parties, anniversaries and weddings. It also hosts a series of very popular medieval banquets.
Blackfriars holds a civil marriages and partnerships venue licence.
