The Black Friar Garden Bar + Wood Fire Kitchen

Now Open. Say hello to Summer...

Made for Spring.

After keeping the citizens of Salford cosy all winter, the Black Friar is ready for a blooming marvellous upcoming season. The Garden Bar + Kitchen is finally here… say hello to your Summer plans.

The perfect spot to relax + soak up some rays – grab a drink, order up a nibble and enjoy the atmosphere all season long.

Didsbury Gin

We’ve team up with local purveyors of fine spirits, Didsbury Gin, to bring our cocktails dreams to life. The Black Friar Garden Bar features an exclusive artisanal gin menu for all to enjoy – alongside all the usual Black Friar offerings.

Think classic + signature gin cocktails, cooling spritzers and bigger concoctions to share. Quintessentially English (just in time for Jubilee weekend)!

Wood Fire Garden Kitchen

Having wowed the foodie scene in the restaurant, Chef Ben and the team turn their attention outdoors to bring you a totally different Black Friar experience.

A decidedly more casual affair, our new state-of-the-art Gozney wood fire oven will serve up British inspired and wallet friendly dishes all day long. The dishes are perfect for sharing, and all served to the same high quality you’ve come to expect from the Black Friar, naturally.

New items include British topped flatbreads, an epic ploughman’s platter, and whole honey glazed British ham hock with beetroot slaw + freshly baked bread.

Food will be served late into the night every day the sun shines, so be sure to check out the Garden Menu if you pop in for a pint!

Needless to say, the  á la carte menu will continue to be served daily from 12pm in the pub, restaurant + garden. 



The perfect spot to relax and soak up some rays, the Garden Bar + Wood Fire Kitchen will be open every day the sun shines, Tuesday-Sunday. Please note, the space is weather dependent – if you’d like to check if outdoors is open before you arrive give reception a call on 0161 667 9555. Whether for dining or drinks, indoor or out, be sure to reserve your spot here.

Planning a party? The Black Friar Garden Bar + Kitchen will be available for private hire, in full or in part, along with a variety of other beautiful spaces. All with no hire fee! Find out more + get in touch here.
