Parlour Bar

Blackfriars' Parlour Bar was the original Parlour for the Dominican Friars used to welcome guests.  For the last 18 years it was a gift shop called Pheonix Antiques and in 2017 we took over occupancy of the Parlour. It’s now used for pre and post meals and is open throughout the day and evening serving bar snacks, including our famous 'Parlour Plank' and coffee, tea, wine, cocktails and beer from 11am-midnight.
