The truffles here are to die for! I purchased a bag of 3 for a small amount of money. They were so good! I was unsure of which ones to get. The woman who was behind the counter told me one of her favorites—it ended...More

Everyone visits the Shambles area, understandably. We stopped in to buy chocolate; incredibly good but pricey.

I read reviews of Monk Bar Chocolatiers before visiting York. They weren't wrong... they really do have the best Hot Chocolate. It was absolutely decadent. I was the only one crazy enough to order a "hot" chocolate on a +27 degree day, but it was...More

Great little shop, excellent location at the head of the Shambles, friendly staff and, oh, the chocolate! How fabulous and delicious., My only regret is that I didn't buy more. Choose from a wide range of individual chocs, which can be boxed for a gift...More

Tucked away on the quaint little side street, you will find Monk Bar Chocolatiers. When we visited thankfully it was quiet so we could have a good look. Loads of different small chocolates in the display fridge, we got a bag full. Absolutely divine they...More

I can honestly say, I'm not a lover of chocolate in general. I'd rather have a packet of crisps or a bit of cheese over chocolate any time. Where Monk's Bar is concerned, however... It is the ONLY chocolate worth having. That is how spectacular...More

We always visit the chocolate shop for Xmas presents and a reminder to my nan. Shocking service this year, ordered a handful of items and after each one had a response of the price as if I couldn’t order more items. The lady was rude...More

Loved the chocolate shot, never enjoyed melted chocolate so much! Great value for money. The hot chocolate was rich and not the usual hot water and a splash of milk kind, but whisked by hand (came with a free chocolate of your choice)! Amazing variety...More
