Although we advise you book for the restaurant, our pub area is entirely left for walk in trade. With the pub spanning over 2 floors, we have plenty of space to accommodate you should you turn up on a whim.

Any bookings will be allocated to our restaurant area.

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.


Bookings can be made outside for dining, and also for just drinks. All garden bookings are for a 2hr duration, and walk-ins are 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.
