It’s difficult to overlook the chocolates and just review the shop here but in essence the two go hand in hand. The shop is super quaint as you’d expect being situated on The Shambles and with quaint comes “compact”, so don’t expect to get too...More

I had read reviews of this shop and wonders if my expectations could possibly be met, however, I was hooked upon tasting a delicate and most delicious hot chocolate. The chocolate "side" piece was absolutely incredible as well. I sat for a time to savor...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

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

We stopped here for coffee and hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was the best I've ever had. Both drinks came with our choice of a chocolate, which were delicious. We also bought a chocolate bar to bring home. Delicious!
