We booked a family meal here for 6 adults. On arrival our table was ready and we were seated downstairs. The seating area is fairly small and lit mostly by candles but has a good ambiance and you do not feel squashed. The menu is not huge but offers good selection and we were all able to find something we... More

This place is small and friendly, and the wine selection is fabulous. When I'm in the mood for a nice rioja this is my go-to venue. Lovely!

We had a party of 10 to eat at The Chancel and although it's not that big we had plenty of space. The food was lovely and the service was very good. Staff knew we were celebrating a birthday so arranged banners and cake before we arrived. Really accommodating and happy to help.

Even though we always use groupon vouchers at the Chancel,we are always treated like family. The surf and turf deal this time was just fab, not so keen on the surf bit so it was given to my husband. Very lovely staff, lots of attention given to us.another winner...thank you all. Teresa.

I spent 2 evenings here whilst visiting friends in Plymouth. On both occasions the food, wine and the service was excellent. Paula and Jamie and their staff should be congratulated! I would definitely recommend a visit.

We had 2 x Groupon vouchers and the staff explained exactly what we were entitled to. Three of us had the crab salad starter which was... More

The food was good, the wine was good the prices were good. They were flexible enough to modify one of their dishes to accommodate a request from us. And the service was as good as you're going to get anywhere - they were friendly, helpful & attentive without being OTT - really impressed. Based on the service alone, I would... More
