Having visited on a busy Saturday (20th) just before Christmas as a group of 9, I must admit that the food and ambience was fantastic. The food didn't rush out mind but as part of the Christmas menu it was really well presented and of a great quality. A nice touch that we didn't expect was a lovely palette cleanser,... More

lovely food, great attentive staff and a lovely atmosphere. The review is subjectively down to the fact there was no 'wow' factor or anything above the norm, That aside, will definitely visit again soon.

Wonderful food and service, with a good varied choice menu. Will be back on our next visit to Plymouth. The burgers are very good but so are the scallops. Bookings is recommended on weekends as always busy.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and the experience was very agreeable. I was surprised that it was so small, but it has a cosy,warm feel to it. We had a selection of tapas, each of which consisted of a generous portion. There was a good selection of tasty items. I feel sure that we will go again... More

I have eaten at the Chancel several times and have never been disappointed. The staff are warm and welcoming and are always very attentive. The food is great, well presented and is very good value for money.

Rather pretentious establishment with overpriced food and drink. The service wasn't very good either. We've eaten here before and decided to give it another try which I think was a mistake.

Had a fantastic meal with friends, delicious fish pie with nicely cooked vegetables, followed by a lovely ice cream very good menu for choices and very nice wine. Staff were very friendly, and the atmosphere was very comfortable sat downstairs which looked like a cellar but well decorated. Would not hesitate to go there again.

of food, service and presentation . The restaurant upstairs is not spacious but intimate, and has a small outdoor area for use in warmer weather and a spacious seating area downstairs.Would recommend to discerning diners.
