It was heaving, with every seat full. The good i) Food was as solid as ever. Special duck starter was very good. Sirloin main was cooked rare, as... More

The restaurant's decor is excellent, and the staff are friendly - but slow. Crab cake appetizers were excellent, but monkfish was just average.

I love the old part particularly and if you can get a table near the Bar it's great! 👌 Burger is excellent and they have delicious specials daily. What's nice is on the menu it's says the Chefs names so a nice personal touch when you enjoy your... More

The 6 of us had a lovely evening. The steaks were delicious and of course the scampi was succulent and crispy. Service by Nicholas was friendly and professional. We have had consistently good food at the Monk over the years.

A very nice and hospitable place. The food is very tasty and the staff is very friendly. Tasting craft beers is highly recommended. They have a very good choice of good wines. Will definitely come back again soon. My sincere gratitude for all the staff!

Went here for dinner just before Christmas with some friends. It is literally like walking into a monastery - the decor and music are very apt, the music is like constant chanting but very low. The food was delicious, we all had different starters and main courses and we were all impressed, the wine selection was good too. Its fairly... More
