Medieval Banquets

Blackfriars Medieval Banquets offer an authentic experience of medieval life and are also lots of fun!

The evenings follow many years of research involving the city archaeologists, the UK’s foremost food historians, various ancient manuscripts and help from Durham University’s Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies. They take place in the candle-lit Banquet Hall where you might feast on pottage and pies, smoked fish, roast meats, cheese and pastries washed down with flagons of ale and fine wine served by our esteemed friars and town wenches. 
Blackfriars hosts a number of medieval banquets throughout the year – please check our events page for details of forthcoming events.

Or why not host your very own banquet? Whether it’s for a corporate function, private party or even your wedding, we can help you create your very own special event! Have a look at our menus and then either send us an email or call 0191 261 5945.
