We were in Norwich celebrating our friends birthday so had been shopping and wanted a bite to eat... the Belgian Monk has a beer garden so we thought we would make the most of the sunshine... We had a look at the extensive menu and most of us decided on the flatbread with chips... we ordered at the bar and... More

Great vegetarian menu, but beware, a starter and a main will double your waistline! The prices are a little high, but on the plus side you get what you pay for. A very popular place, so get there early at lunch to beat the rush. Great friendly service and an impressive variety of beer.

Me and the wife travelled to Norwich with our eldest daughter on a business trip. We dined at this rather charming looking Belgian restaurant called The Belgian Monk. We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our table. The interior décor of the restaurant is quite nice. After dining here we found the quality of the food that... More

I tried the food here for the first time at a work do recently, having been a couple of times in the past for a drink. I was impressed by the reasonably priced and authentically Belgian/Dutch menu on offer with the "Dubbel Deal" (2 meals for £12.50) and wanted to try everything. I settled for the wild boar sausages and... More

We regularly visit the Belgian Monk, purely for the fantastic range of quality beers they serve. Trappiste Rochefort 10, Oude Geuze Boon and St Bernardus Tripel are personal favourites and the Ter Dolen Kriek (Cherry Beer) is a great refreshing beer. Not a place for cheap beer, but the quality is outstanding and atmosphere of the beautiful old building is... More

We managed to get a table at the ever popular Belgian Monk (definitely book in advance!) I had the trout and my boyfriend the duck. Both were amazing. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would love to try their mussles next! Prices were a little high (12 pounds upwards main course, but I think this reflected the quality of the food.)... More

I love this place. The vegetarian and vegan selection is huge and great quality. I particular love ordering coffee for a shot of advocate on the side...mmmm. If you get there at the right time they do great offers on 2 meals off a selective menu. My friend who eats meat also loved her meal. Great selection of Belgian beers,... More

Booked for 6 friends celebrating a birthday weekend in Norwich. Needed somewhere nice for lunch that also catered for vegans. Such an extensive menu for everyone, including wines and beers. Food was faultless, so was the service. Had a really enjoyable couple of hours here. So central to the city centre too. Highly recommend and will most definitely be returning!

Thank Gypsy J
