We chose it as it was equidistant from St Pancras and the Albert Hall, but a beautiful/historic interior makes this a place worth seeking out. Beers were in very good condition. St Peters Golden, Fyne Jarl, Great Heck Christopher - and a wild oat stout that I can't think of the name of - all tried and enjoyed. Customer service pretty good. Prices the higher end of London rip-off.

All is still ok at the Blackfriar. Very busy on a Saturday late afternoon but service was prompt and friendly.

Bernie from Scunthorpe was giving out relationship advice and that must be treasured.

Quality pub.

Busy on a Saturday night with not too raucous younger crowd who seemed to be enjoying the ale. had a decent pint of a Thornbridge winter brew. Worth dropping by - ornate interior and a few ales on. Across the road from Blackfriars station.

Saturday lunch is the time to go!

Got a seat - in the most elegant part of the pub.

Fantastic building which makes it worth checking out but shocking beer.

First pint of black sheep - the barmaid wrapped a paper towel around the pump. I took one sip and refused to pay. Utter bilge water.

Replacement pint of doom bar was ever so slightly better.

I would recommend popping your head in the door and drinking elsewhere!

Our second pub on our pub crawl of London. The Victorians certainly went to town with sheer decadence, and The Blackfriar is no exception. Magic copper carvings surround the place above the bar and on the walls. The fireplace taking centre stage and outstanding feature.

Had a couple of Yuletide Christmas Stouts, which tasted bang on, but the prices reflected the area we were in (Central Business District.)

Place was heaving with many eating, and seating was at a premium. We eventually found a spot.
