Blackfriars is truly unique and provides the perfect, picturesque backdrop for a beautiful wedding or civil partnership.

Blackfriars was established in 1239 as a Dominican friary and remains one of the jewels in Newcastle’s medieval crown. Whilst its horseshoe of stone buildings surround a sheltered courtyard, its peaceful and tranquil location belies its hidden location right in the heart of the city.

Housed within a Grade 1 Listed Building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument, Blackfriars Restaurant opened in 2001 and has been in the same ownership ever since. The restaurant has held an AA Rosette for almost two decades and is recommended by the Michelin Guide and Good Food Guide. The restaurant has also won many awards including Taste of the North East and is now one of the most recognised and reputed restaurants in Newcastle.

The ground floor comprises the main restaurant, a stunning self-contained Banquet Hall and an ornate Parlour Bar for early arrivals and drinks receptions as well as our sheltered courtyard. On the first floor the Tasting Room is housed within one of the former guild meeting rooms, as is the state-of-the-art Cookery School and other meeting rooms. The former friary, courtyard and gardens provide the perfect picture-postcard setting for your photographs.

Blackfriars is approved by Newcastle City Council for marriages and civil partnerships so you can enjoy both your ceremony and reception in one place. We have dedicated wedding coordinators to help you plan your day and take care of all your wants and needs so you don’t have to worry.
Blackfriars is able to accommodate most wedding formats. Just imagine the ceremony of your dreams in our ornate Banquet Hall or unique Tasting Room, followed a relaxed Champagne reception in the sheltered courtyard or historic Parlour Bar before heading back into the Banquet Hall for a delicious and memorable wedding breakfast and evening party. Blackfriars really does have it all and is the perfect venue for your big day!
