Christmas gift to us both and was much appreciated, the food was delicious and you didn't come away still feeling hungry,will definately return to try the Tapas.Ideally placed at the top of town with a carpark nearby.Only drawback I could see were the stairs leading downstairs as they were twisty and not much to hold onto.

I am embarrassed to say that this is the first time that we have eaten at The Chancel. Well what a huge gap in my experiences in Plymouth.! It was friendly well served with good atmosphere and excellent food with a very flexible menu allowing most palettes to be accommodated. The wine list is well chosen and prices are fair.... More

I use this restaurant on average once a year when staying overnight on business. The quality/range of food and service is of a consistently good standard and value for money.
