booking allocation + Walk-ins

Please select if you’d like to be seated indoors or outside when booking. Indoor bookings may be allocated to the Pub, Restaurant or Glass Room. If you’d like to be seated in a certain area, please make a special request and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Walk-ins are always welcome, but please note during busier periods we may not be able to accommodate. If you’re planning ahead, please book to ensure your spot!

Make a booking by phone

Our bookings diary is open twelve months in advance. Reservations phone lines are open between 9am-7pm, seven days a week – please call 0161 667 9555 to make a booking.


Whether it be celebrating a birthday, a graduation or a work event – we’d love to see you.

Here at The Black Friar, we consider a large party to be 7 guests or more. Please give us a call on 0161 667 9555 or email to book.


We understand that things can happen and plans change. Please try to give us 24 hours notice of any change to avoid any loss of deposit.


Book for dining or drinks only outdoors. All garden bookings are for a 2hr duration, with walk-ins welcome where capacity allows.

As our garden is uncovered, bookings are made weather permitting. We’ll do our best to accommodate you inside the restaurant if there’s a rainy spell, though this may not always be possible during busier periods.

Please note: pay-as-you-go payments are required for drinks tables. Book above or give us a call.
