After recently spending an evening at The Chancel in celebration of my mum's 60th we (a party of 15) had a very relaxing and enjoyable evening, the table was decorated with rose shaped napkins in the glasses which we though was a lovely touch. The food was lovely and well presented and the staff were nothing short of brilliant from... More

We visited for the first time using a groupon. We were shown to a table in the back yard! This was literally their back yard that had been closed in with a polycarbonate roof. That we didn't mind what I di mind was the dirt everywhere. The bases of the tables were filthy and so was a shelf where they... More

There's nothing I can say about the chancel that isn't positive, from walking through the door to leaving after a fantastic meal, the staff and owners make you feel as if you're the only people in there, fantastic food and great wine selection.

Having read about this bistro in the local paper I thought it was worth a visit. My wife and myself went in for a snack. However, we decided to push the boat out after looking at the menu. We were certainly not disappointed. Unfortunately my eyes were bigger than my belly. But whether you wanted a snack or a meal... More

Will definitely be going back here again! I had the seabass and my partner had the steak and calamari to start. We each had a glass of wine and it was all delicious. Lovely atmosphere and brilliant service.

Have eaten here twice with friends, once with a travel zoo deal. Both times the food was fabulous, service attentive but not intrusive and with a great choice of wines. On both occasions we managed to get the date we wanted, with the owner arranging to call us back to ensure they could fit us in. Superb.

This is a quite unassuming little place. Close to the magistrates' courts. The Barbican and all its' pleasures is just round the corner. The food is very good, the choice is large and the service is very pleasant.
