Start your week as you mean to go on at Newcastle’s iconic Blackfriars. The purpose-built dining room dates back to 1239 here, and British cuisine is served at heavy wooden tables in the former refectory of the friary. This January the deal is three courses at lunch time for £20 or two in the evening for £20. Our choice would include a starter of curried potato velouté, followed by either the chicken and tarragon Wellington, or the pan-roasted cod, with the dark chocolate delicé and salted caramel ice cream to finish.
