We visited here for a birthday meal for my other half. I called a week in advance and could only get a table at 8.30 which only goes to show how popular this place is. We had a fish platter to start which was delicious and tasted very fresh. For main courses, my other half had the Belgian monk surf... More

I like a decent pub, and I expect a barman/woman to be able to give a recommendation. I would especially expect it in a pub that specialises in beers that are quite out of the ordinary. When I asked for a recommendation, the barmaid rolled her eyes and handed me a bar menu, before going straight back to chatting with... More

This 'pub' showcases those artisan brewers from Belgium very well indeed. It's 'not my cup of tea' exactly as its all very strong, so not a place for a 'session', and I certainly wouldn't be wanting too much of the strong beer before a dull afternoon in front of a PC in a warm office.

Enjoyed meeting with friends and having a few beers in the Monk. Nice atmosphere and good staff, served very quickly. Bit of a climb up the hill to get to it on cobblestones but don't see a downside.

Tuesday meals out can sometimes be slightly depressing atmosphere wise, this place was so busy that it felt like a weekend evening. Which was lovely to walk in to. The staff were all incredibly welcoming and friendly, they also seemed very confident with the fairly large menu which I always find encouraging. Drinks and food were delicious, I had a... More
