The Belgian Monk opened in December 2000. The main objective was to create something different yet to fit in with the way drinking and dining is changing. It has become a successful and established bar and restaurant, offering customers a choice of a regular selection of some 45 beers together with a selection of special beers. The menu is based on serving only the best products available freshly prepared daily, at realistic prices, in an informal relaxed "friends and family" atmosphere. It provides more than just the meal or drink but a whole Belgian experience. Now owned and run by Wursty Four Biers Ltd the new owners hope to take this fantastic venue to new heights and enhance the service style and offer. Sincerely not to be missed!

              • Ter Dolen Armand – 7% ABV* ** (33cl Bottle)

                A blond fruity beer with hints of grapefruit and citrus. This beer combines 3 types of American hops to produce a lager-like taste with a bitter finish. Unfiltered cloudy and hoppy, easy drinking. Gold medal winner 2012 and 2019

                • Ter Dolen Donker – 7.1% ABV* **

                  This dark Abbaye beer with its mellow taste and full body is fruity and slightly sweet. Winner of the Bronze medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge

                    A recently added white beer brewed with a nod to tradition, by using malted and unmalted wheat amongst other grains. The coriander and orange zest gives the beer its refreshing character with a fresh and mildly herbal finish

                    • Saison Dupont – 6.5% ABV* **

                        Ochre coloured, with a balanced fruity-malty, light taste

                          This is a beer that is in a class of its own, a dark heavy beer that is very easy drinking, so rich in flavour the English call this a barley wine. The Belgians? Well they simply ask.... is there a better beer than Gulden Draak in this world?

                          • Jupiler Red Pils – 5% ABV* **

                            Three carefully selected hops and malt infuse this Pils with a full malty flavour adding a refreshing aroma and a nicely balanced bitterness

                            • Bersalis Tripel – 9.5% ABV*

                              This exceptional beer is a blond triple with great character. The full bodied taste of wheat and malt evolves during drinking from a fruity bitter flavour to a round sweetness with a hint of citrus

                                This exceptional quadruple beer unites the worlds of coffee, chocolate and beer in one glass. A rich dark beer that's smooth, sweet yet bitter at the same time

                                • St Bernardus Abt 12 – 10% ABV* **

                                  The pride of the stable, this dark quadruple beer is packed full of fruity aromas. A perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter and sweet. Full bodied with a long bitter sweet finish

                                  • Kwak – 8.4% ABV**

                                    Strong amber ale served in a miniature yard-of-ale glass supported by a wooden plinth. Legend has it that this bizarre vessel enabled it to be passed to coachmen without spillage. This beer offers much more than novelty value

                                    • Delirium Nocturnum – 8.5% ABV**

                                      A rich deep coloured beer with notes of caramel, mocha and chocolate combined with spices such as liquorice and coriander. A nice balance of bitterness, sour and sweet. Please be aware of the pink elephants!

                                      • Rochefort 10 – 11.3% ABV* **

                                        One of only 6 Trappist beers. This excellent brown beer with a hint of chocolate is fermented in the bottle. Although easy drinking should always be drunk with respect

                                        • Kasteel Rouge – 8% ABV

                                          This is the fruit beer from the excellent Kasteel range. Its unique dark red colour is obtained by mixing Kasteel Bruin that has matured for six months, with sour cherries. It's an outstanding real ale, but be careful - it's tasty, easy drinking but strong

                                          • Bush Amber – 12% ABV* **

                                            One of the oldest Belgian "special" beers, pride of the Debuisson family. Brewed using malt, hops and natural sugars leaves this beer with a bitter sweet caramel taste

                                            • Tripel Karmeliet – 8.4% ABV**

                                              • La Chouffe – 8% ABV* **

                                                An exceptionally unfiltered blond beer. Pleasantly fruity and nicely spiced with coriander tinged with hops. Great with white meats and meaty fish dishes

                                                • Brugse Zot Blond – 6% ABV* **

                                                  A delicious blond beer with a fruity yet spicy bouquet. Brewed with four different kinds of hops which gives the beer its inimitable taste

                                                    This superb triple is brewed only when there is a full moon. This beer is smooth, strong and full of character. It never disappoints

Food portions are a good size, remember this if your intention is to drink several beers. We sat outside in the lovely beer garden in the sunshine. Definitely recommend the Belgium Monk.

We have not heard good things about the food however we thought it only fair to see for ourselves. The menu is much reduced and the food that we had was not the best unfortunately. Not a wide choice of food and that that we had was okay. We will continue to go in for the cherry beer however we won’t be eating there again. Such a shame this is a great venue and the staff are brilliant I’m not sure why they changed what was a winning formula. Disappointing

We were not disappointed! A mouth watering menu, excellent attentive service and a fine selection of Belgian beers made for a very good evening. The food was superb, the Belgian waffles for dessert are a must (if you have any room left!). For those not keen on the beer, there was a good selection of wine. Overall, an excellent experience and one I would happily repeat whenever back in Norwich. Recommended.

Having spent many an evening pre Covid at the Monk feeling completely satisfied with the experience sadly we’ve been left with a general feeling of deflation.. the initial welcome was less than welcoming, the wait for interaction and food was disappointing although being early evening and far from busy despite being fully staffed, the menu has been decimated from before and key ingredients are missing from dishes without explanation.. all four of our dishes missed key ingredients .. although we received a reduced final bill once made aware, it dampened my birthday.. I’ve recommended the Monk whole heartedly pre Covid but sadly, I think I’ll walk away .. the saying goes you should never revisit a past lover, well, in hindsight, I shouldn’t of returned .. if you’re familiar with the old Monk, consider alternatives…

We asked a couple of times where the food was and we were assured that it was coming. After 45 minutes we spoke to the server again and she confessed that the order was lost but the kitchen was working on it now. After nearly an hour from sitting down the food came, with just a sorry! It’s a shame as the food was very nice.

Under new owners recently, it is good but certainly not as good as it used to be. The website showed the familiar "dubbel deal" still good value at £18 so it was infuriating to find on arrival that it was priced at £24.95. Frankly, I did expect them to honour the lower "advertised" price. By contrast, the management adopted "computer says no" and seemed not to appreciate just how much customers would feeled duped and cheated. Had I been feeling less congenial I'd have walked out without ordering. What would we have missed. The food menu has been heavily pruned; a much reduced range of choices. Our fish and chips arrived promptly enough and was very good quality. We had wanted to have (as we had in February) the "tasting menu" of Belgian beers - from memory it consisted of five styles for £16 - but this has been discontinued. The Belgian Monk used to carry a staggering, quite exceptional range of Belgian beers. This is significantly reduced now. Our waitress was very good, quite fun, and helpfully agreed to "approximate" the tasting menu with a succession of five small beers and additional glasses so that we could share each one. The building and decor remain lovely, traditional style, excellent. Promoted by a previous reviewer to consider the background music , I also recall remarking on the crass "I'm in love with your body"; wouldn't have cut it if I'd been with a date rather than a mate! So, worth a visit if you haven't been before but regulars - be warned!

Mussels were perfectly sweet and simply served though there were many variations offered. Lobster chowder and duck liver pate were declared very tasty. The traditional Tartiflette was a lovely, indulgent, old fashioned dish full of flavour. Trout fillets were perfectly cooked, and the crispy pork belly had the crunchiest crackling ever! Despite being very full we just had to try the puddings but again failed to finish the generous servings of brownies and waffles chosen. Service was efficient, friendly and professional. There was time between courses to relax but not so slow that we felt we had to rush to leave in time for the theatre. When we go again we will try to resist the starters and concentrate on the main courses but the menu offers so many tempting and original choices that policy may prove difficult!

But when arrived we were told it was £24. 95 !! Plus they didn’t have the options that they advertised when booked and ran out of cherry beer which was why we came. Also asked three times if we were finished which we felt was extremely rude. So in all not a good experience

The starter arrived quickly ( around 7.40) and was delicious. We looked forward to out mains and waited and waited. Eventually at 9.15 I asked where our food was and if it didn’t arrive in 10 mins, we would leave but pay for what we had including our drinks. The waitress went to ask and returned saying they were now ready. They arrived at 9.20. We quickly finished and paid but removed the discretionary 12% service charge which the waitress completely understood, the first time I’ve ever done this. Some diners on the next table had a similar experience and were going to order deserts but decided to have a slice of cake at home instead rather than wait for so long again. The food was good when it arrived but unfortunately it didn’t matter as the enjoyment had gone by then. I feel we should have been told of the delays and the reasons for it. This would help us understand the situation and put a timescale on our expectations. We left at 9.40. We will return again but not on a Saturday.

So cool in fact that the server lifted the lid with her bare hands - no steam escaped. The bowls themselves were not even hot nor the serving plate. It was clear that the staff were harassed for some reason, a maintenance man was walking round with tools in hand!! The beer battered onion rings were cool and dripping oil! Had we had time, we would have sent the mussels back but we were on a tight schedule. No member of staff came to ask if we were happy with our order not even when we asked for the bill. Wish now that we had dismissed the 12.5% surcharge. Very disappointed with service and lunch - doubt we will return and would definitely warn others of our experience.

I appreciate this is down to the fishmonger rather than the restaurant. 2nd visit was told they had no mussels however they kindly called that morning to warn me ahead of the booking. We went ahead anyway but alas the service was slow and the food was cold. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable but it seemed they were short staffed as she couldn’t keep up with customer demand.

Selection of beers is too great to comprehend. Staff was friendly but maybe not very helpful guiding us to the best beers for our tastes.
