“We love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

They do flavoured belgian beers for the ladies. Their crab starter is amazing. The shots are good too. Service is good. To be assured of a table better to book can get busy. My mother loves their mussel dishes.

“Wonderful mussels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

The mussels on the Dubble Deal, ie two meals for £11.95, are fantastic value for money. I have had mussels many times but these are always the best and served with really good chips and mayonnaise. The waitress was very helpful and extremely cheerful. The only down side is the price of wine with the cheapest at about £16.
This establishment is for lovers of Belgium beers but those of us who prefer wine feel penalised!

Even the coffee is served accompanied by a mini doughnut, and a small glass of Advocat and cream, a tasty finish to a delicious meal.

“A little bit of paradise in Norwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The selection of Belgian ales, both bottled and on draught, is fantastic - it was very difficult to choose anything to drink, as there were easily a dozen that I wanted to try (which would have been a big mistake at lunch time!). The mussels selection is around 30 variations of plain or creamy or spicy sauces, and choosing one was nearly as hard as choosing the beer. The service was great - quick and polite - and my wife and I had a good, long leisurely lunch on a cold, Saturday afternoon. We'll definitely come again next time we are in Norwich

“Mussels and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I like the Belgium Monk, it gives you the chance to experience different beers and the friendly staff will talk you through the beers, especially if they are not too busy, so get in early.
I am a fussy eater, but I love the mussels and chips and my partner enjoyed his beef with beer pie and chips, both off the double deal for £11.50, which runs Mon to Fri 5.30-7.00 which was great for then for going on to the cinema.
