What is it? A 13th century friary where you can feast like medieval royalty.
Why go? Okay, okay, before you go full-on Sir Gawain, the ‘medieval’ bit is optional. Blackfriars do host medieval-themed banquets, but only for large groups booking in advance. The rest of the time the restaurant does fine European dining and some class act puddings. Get into the monastery spirit of things by ordering beer instead of wine. High-end.
If you're vacationing here, you're unlikely to ever go hungry but the best restaurants in Newcastle make living in this town a constant struggle to resist going out for a lavish meal every single night of the week.
From award-winning fine dining to the stalls of Grainger Market, all culinary budgets are accounted for. Don't forget how close you are to the coast: devouring superior fresh seafood is actually one of the best things to do in Newcastle.
Book yourself a room at one of the best hotels in town and get ready for some serious eating.
