The Blackfriar is an old fashioned looking English pub. I came here for lunch with my parents for a fish and chips and a beer. The food was decent. Would most definitely come back to grab a drink in this rustic tavern!

The restaurant is beautiful inside and out. There is a lot of character in the architecture and exceptional decor on the inside. I'm not from the UK, but it's what I was hoping... more
