A typical week at The Monk



Monday evening

We're closed on Monday , so we can all get some much needed rest and prepare for the rest of the week! 

Tuesday - Thursday evening

Our prix fixe mid week menu, at £29 for 2 courses and £35 for 3 courses is designed by our chefs to be exceptional value for money, especially in these economically challenged times!! Everything is created and crafted in house and  is peppered with a la carte options (for small supplements) if you fancy something even more special

Tuesday evening

It's all about wine on 'Tasting Tuesdays' Our prix fixe menu  is in play, with some ad hoc  wine flight options, as well as wines of the week. An opportunity to boost your wine knowledge and get to taste some wines side by side as well as explore lesser known regions and grape varieties. Simon's on hand if you'd like to ask any questions or just for some general wine banter (or bulls**t)!! This will go live from Jan 2024

Wednesday evening
Steak night

top steak and wine combos available to share, or to have all to yourself. All of our steaks are dry aged for a minimum of 30 days; from prime fillet steaks, to 16oz T bones and Chateaubriand; all paired, by Simon, with discounted, premium wines. If steak's not your thing, we still run our prix fixe menu. 

Thursday evening

Seafood this evening; how about a dozen Colchester oysters with mignonette (we strongly recommend you order these before you come so as you're not disappointed if we run out), or our signature monkfish and chips (to die for!)? Lots of seafood to choose from, in addition to the prix fixe menu and  all fresh on the day. Simon's paired wines of the week for only £23 and £26 (Previous bottles have included and cracking Picpoul de Pinet and a racy, elegant Sauvignon Blanc from Nederburg, Paarl in S Africa. God forbid that you simply loathe seafood, our prix fixe menu is also available!! 

Friday & Saturday

It's the weekend! At the weekend we switch up to our A' la carte menus. You can see our sample menu on our 'Food at The Monk page' to get an idea of what we are all about. Or simply enjoy our cracking cocktails and check out our wine list.
