Eat here a few times a year bit we prefer mid/late afternoon for a peaceful mellow drink to gently wash the cares of the world away. Very good selection of wines competitively priced.

When was the last time a restaurant was more concerned with your experience, than making a buck? the wait was... More

This is the third time we have visited the Chancel and once again we were not disappointed. Our main course was the fish platter. It was absolutely delicious and very filling.

Every time I go the Chancel, I am always impressed, but on this particular occasion Paula went out of her way to accommodate us. This really is my favourite restaurant in Plymouth! I look forward to my next visit.

Visited with a groupon deal. Fantastic value for money and a great wine list. We all had the sirloin steak with salad and chips. Couldn't fault anything. Extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Can't see why it's not no1 on tripadviser. It deserves to be.
