Located a literal stone’s throw away from the old Boddington’s Brewery, The Black Friar was always known as a ‘Boddies’ pub – a boozer where you were always guaranteed to get the freshest pint of ‘The Cream of Manchester‘ imaginable.
Since the closure of the pub 19 years ago, and then subsequently the closing of the brewery further up the road, Boddies has been increasingly more difficult to find in pubs in Manchester, and its association with the city has waned considerably over the years.
But rising like a phoenix out of the flames came The Black Friar, refurbished, renovated and looking absolutely stunning, retaining its Grade-II listed shell and adding a modern glass restaurant compete with an open kitchen, private dining room and a massive outdoor terrace. Oh, and newly polished and refurbished Boddingtons signs proudly proclaiming the pub to be a Boddies pub once more.
And thus we come to the real reason you clicked this article. The promise of FREE Bottomless Boddingtons. Well, The Black Friar is putting the offer on this Sunday 19th June for Father’s Day, so if you book a meal with them, they’ll give your dad (or you if you are the dad) endless pints of Boddies – absolutely FREE!
With it being a Sunday too, The Black Friar will be serving up their exceptional Roast Dinners all day, where you can get 2 courses for £29 or 3 courses for £35.
There’s plenty of options available for your roast dinner, as well as other mains such as the Lake District Himalayan Salt Aged Beef served with roasted shallots, and the Cumbrian Lamb Rack with foraged mushrooms, pommes anna and watercress.
So, there’s probably no better way to treat your dad this Father’s Day than with a slap-up roast dinner and bottomless Boddingtons. Get yourself booked in below…
