We're been voted best sunday roast!

Mon 13th Aug

We're thrilled to have made it onto the Daily Mail's best British Sunday roast list and to be only one of three restaurants in Newcastle!

It states: Blackfriars claims to have the UK’s oldest dining room, where modern British food is served on great wooden tables in the 13th-Century refectory of an old friary – halibut with glazed ox cheek and oyster pie, lamb cooked three ways or gnocchi with crisp hen’s egg and smoked cheddar. Sunday lunch is every bit as exciting, with
local rump of beef, leg of lamb, pork belly and chicken, all served with the trimmings. There’s also vegetable haggis and poached salmon for vegetarians and a decent kids’ menu and wine list. 

Rebecca Blackith, restaurant Manager at Blackfriars said: "This acknowledgement is a testament to the hard work of the chefs and front-of-house team to make Sunday lunch an award-winning meal week after week. This comes shortly after we were voted Best Sunday Roast in the North East by readers of the Independent too so we couldn't be happier!"
Blackfriars is open for Sunday lunch from 12-4pm serving Roast Waterford farm rump of beef, Roast Northumberland lamb leg, Roast Crane Row Pork Belly, Pan-roasted chicken - with Yorkshire pudding, trimmings and gravy.
