About Blackfriars Restaurant

Friars Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
Tyne & Wear, NE1 4XN

Located in a 13th century former medieval friary sits Blackfriars, the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Licensed for marriages, civil ceremonies and partnerships you can enjoy both the ceremony and reception all under one roof.

At Blackfriars we have a dedicated wedding coordinator to help guide you through the planning timings and logistics of your day as well as food & beverage. You are welcome to source your own decorations, flowers, cake, music etc and Blackfriars can certainly recommend some exceptional suppliers for this.

The former friary also gives you the perfect setting for your drinks reception and photos in the cloister garden or Banquet Hall.

Every wedding here is a unique and bespoke event to you. That’s why we can tailor our menus to suit you! From a simple luncheon to Champagne & canapés, followed by a full tasting menu, we can provide it all. Evening buffet spreads can also be arranged and tailored to your needs, whilst wines and other drinks can be recommended to compliment your chosen menus. 

Our banquet hall can host up to 50 guests for a ceremony and then a formal dining experience on two long tables or as a U-shape. The main restaurant can accommodate up to 72 guests for a meal, with smaller grouped tables situated throughout the room.

We have it all at our venue and we are always happy to show people around, just make an appointment with one of our friendly members of staff!

Special service
Venue Service

By Laura Allan, on 22 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Jul 2016

All was faultless - from the planning and advice to the food and service on the day. I really can’t fault any aspect of the service we got from start to finish. Even after the event, we have returned a few times for meals, and have been remembered by the staff each time, and made to feel like special guests. It’s this special service which will keep us coming back, and recommending the venue to others.

The food and drink was excellent

Lee was great from the initial viewing of Blackfriars to the organisation on the day. We had full confidence in her ability to give us the relaxed day we wanted. The food and drink was excellent and all of the guests enjoyed the day.

Thank you

We could not have asked for a better venue, meal, drinks or service. As far as we are concerned Blackfriars made our day very special. We had excellent feedback from our guests and quite a few are recommending Blackfriars as a great place to have a wedding and also as somewhere to go to enjoy a great meal and service.

A perfect day. Thank you!

By Rachel Brown, on 22 Jan 2016

I had 100% confidence in Lee (wedding coordinator) and knew that the room would be lovely. In fact, she and the staff exceeded those expectations and for this reason, we loved the venue even more. It gave us the wedding we had both wished for as it was relaxed and friendly yet extremely professional and organised. The restaurant provided stunning food throughout the day.
