A unique city centre pub with a rich history

Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Blackfriar is certainly no exception.

Set in a historic, Art Nouveau Grade II masterpiece of a building, The Blackfriar was built in 1875 on the site of a Dominican friary. The building was designed by architect H. Fuller-Clark and artist Henry Poole, who were both committed to the free-thinking arts and crafts movement.

Today, you’ll still find Poole’s original jolly friars around the pub, in the form of sculptures, mosaics, and reliefs. You might say we’re lucky to still be here after being saved from demolition by a campaign led by Sir John Betjeman!
