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.

The Parlour Plank - £9pp
Fancy a quick bite to eat? Come and try our 'Parlour Plank' consisting of slow-cooked ham, charcuterie, cheese, pickles and freshly made sourdough bread.  It's available from Monday to Saturday 12-10pm in the bar - ideal for a break from the office, low-key business meetings and showing visitors around the city! A vegetarian option is also available which features beans/mushrooms on toast, crispy hens egg, cheese, pickles and sourdough.
