Now I like a beer. I particularly like a Belgian beer and there is no shortage of choice at The Belgian Monk. Housed in a beautiful period building, delicious beers can be enjoyed in lovely, traditional surroundings. There is an extensive beer menu and the staff are happy to help with advice and guidance. If you're feeling a bit peckish,... More

Booked for party of 4 lunchtime, one vegan and one vegetarian diner. Menu extremely varied, good selection of vegan and vegetarian food options. Very friendly staff, explained options and questions raised with menu. Good selection of starters, taster plates and value main courses. Wonderful selection of beers, various strengths and flavours.

A bit pricey but good was great value. The beer was excellent and I had a great time. May I suggest to look at the spree book for discounts on meals before you go. I did and got 1 meal frèc.

We had the lunchtime special of two mussels, this was followed by diarrhoea and acute vomiting for most of last night. Until 2.00am I was frightened I was going to die, from 2.00am until sunrise I was frightened I wasn't. As this was all we ate and we both had the same symptoms, it seems pretty clear what caused it.... More

Although we only had a portion of chips on this occasion, we have eaten before, and the meal was very good. Great place to eat if you like Mussels. We sampled several of the beers - probably too many, as the afternoon seemed to go rather quickly - but it is a lovely setting to spend time with our sons.

I've eaten here a few times now, the food looks and tastes good but recently I've felt ill afterwards. My friends have also reported feeling unwell too. Will be sticking to the beer in future.

We had won a voucher at a raffle, this isnt somewhere we had thought about going before, despite having heard good reports. So we booked dinner. The beers were amazing, some will knock your socks off but they taste great! The atmosphere downstairs was buzzing and felt really positive. My only negative comment: There were no tables downstairs so we... More

Saturday lunchtime, very lively, with what seemed like quite a lot of locals and not just tourists. Very attentive and well dressed staff. Packed and no available tables as didn't book but managed to get a seat at the bar which added to the atmosphere. Great Belgium style tapas and especially tasty meat balls and spicy sausage. Great selection of... More

Visited as a group of 8, all of us had amazing meals and appreciated the different variety of drinks on offer, even the gin shots! Staff are very polite and attentive. Would certainly return and eat again. Only grumble is the price...... but based on meals I would say this is warranted.

Thank Quimmy1985
