Blackfriars Bistro is Celebrating its 25th Anniversary!

As long-time advocates of the farm-to-table movement, menus reflect our commitment to the diversity of locally-sourced ingredients and quality products from small-scale farmers, indie producers and food artisans. Blackfriars scratch kitchen and bakery remain committed to using the finest seasonal food products and quality ingredients possessing unique characteristics. Emanuela Frongia and chef Bryan Lavery are supporters of the buy-local movement and offer a Slow Food-inspired experience. They endeavour to respond to the growing concern about re-establishing the link with how food is grown and who it is grown by. The Blackfriars team support independent farmers, artisans, local craft brewers, distillers and offer VQA and consignment wines.
Blackfriars is open for alfresco dining on our new custom built patio, in our air-conditioned dining room or for contactless curbside pick-up. Covid-19 protocols remain in place.
