  • We booked this for a pre theatre meal. Arriving at 5.30 gave us an unhurried, excellent meal. The Chancel is small without being cramped. There a few wine drinkers as well as diners which gave this place a nice atmosphere. They provide a 2 or 3 set price pre theatre menu with sufficient choice for vegetarians as well as meat eaters. My chicken liver pate followed by pork belly was exceptionally good for the very reasonable price. My friends were equally delighted with their choices. There's a very comprehensive wine list with, as far as I could make out, everything available by the glass, carafe or bottle, a welcome change from places that only give a few choices for wine by the glass. As a particular note of worthiness there was an ordering error which was dealt with without fuss or query and very promptly the correct dish arrived. Efficient and friendly service complimented the excellent flavours. Will most definitely return.

  • Had a wonderful meal tonight at the Chancel. The food was excellent, I usually have the swordfish, but tonight had steak. Excellent, my husband had the fish and chips, which he said was also excellent. The food was perfect. And the gentleman who served us was lovely.he was so friendly, Love This Restaurant
