One of the most Iconic pubs in The Capital. One of The Independent's Top Pubs in London (2015) Give us a visit!

You will find The Blackfriar in Blackfriars London within a short stroll of Blackfriars Bridge, Upper Thames Street and Fleet Street - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

Our historic Art Nouveau Grade II masterpiece of a pub was built in 1875 on the site of a Dominican friary. The building was designed by architect H. Fuller-Clark and artist Henry Poole, both committed to the free-thinking of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Jolly friars appear everywhere in the pub in sculptures, mosaics and reliefs. We are lucky to still be here as our wonderful pub was saved from demolition by a campaign led by Sir John Betjeman.
