Visited for the tapas lunch menu again and it didn't disappoint! The restaurant was mega busy they were turning customers away and it was only a Tuesday lunch so it shows how good the food is at the chancel. Always good serving even when it's busy. Can't wait for our next visit

Visited this restaurant for the wife's birthday on the 14th October. Friendly staff, good wine but steak was a little tough obviously not the restaurants fault. We had a voucher from groupon which of course means you get your meal and wine quite a bit cheaper so I guess that is why the chips were, well the same as you... More

The gentleman serving us was wonderful and knowledgable with his wines! We found a lovely new wine and a great atmosphere. Coming again soon!

I have eaten at the Chancel several times and always found their food very nice. Food Since they introduced the tapas I've really loved this place. Used a groupon deal which was fab value, amazing portions and fab taste. I can't really praise the food anymore. Service The staff here are always lovely - attentive and accommodating, bubbly and friendly.... More

Some of the best seafood we have ever had in the UK. We had a table downstairs which I agree is a litle dark but cosy feeling. All staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely go there again on our next trip. Recommend the Limoncello ice cream complete with the glass of Limoncello.

Best fish I have had in the UK, crab starter was just sublime and the main fish platter was awesome too. So fresh. Wine - would have liked a slightly older vintage but i understand the economics so I know that remains a dream. And it is a bit small - ate upstairs and have not seen downstairs. The quality... More

We had a groupon deal, and a friend of mine said it was a lovelyplace. We ate downstairs, it was so dark, took a while for your eyes to customise. The food was ok, but nothing special. Most people were on a groupon deal. There was very little atmosphere sat in the dark outside the toilet. It was a warm... More

My wife had visited the restaurant previously with friends and she said that the next time we were in the area we must have lunch. When we arrived the upstairs eating area was very busy but the waitress who met us soon found us a table. The clientele was a mixture of couples, friends and family, all of differing ages.... More
