Nice concept - unfortunately tainted

I went here with a relatively large group (11) and on arrival we were taken down to the bar area. Love the concept of the restaurant, and it's decorated really well throughout. Great to see something different in the area! Once seated, we ordered our food - it does feel a little like some get... read more

I went here with a group of friends for a celebration. We arranged to meet in the downstairs bar, only to be told when we got there that our drinks would be served in the waiting area, and then we were taken to our table early. We asked for a bottle of white zinfandel, which they didn't have, but offered... More

My husband and myself ate here on Saturday evening. It's a very unusual environment as the stained glass church windows are still present and there is a sort of 'gothic' feel to the decoration inside. We were very impressed by the level of attentiveness which was shown to us by the waiter. We were given a choice of tables and... More

Went here in a party of 6 for the Tuesday tarot night and 3 courses and it was fantastic. The food is stunning and would highly recommend the steak and lamb, they were cooked to perfection. The decor still as lovely and clean as previously visit. BIG shout out to (headmistress) Diane and her friendly staff, who made us feel... More

I and my family have now visited the Chapel on several Sundays to enjoy a really good Lunch.You are greeted by the Head Waiter as long lost friends-and guides you too one of the comfortable tables where drinks are swiftly served to put you in a relaxed mood.

A lovely place with a unique atmosphere. Staff were extremely accommodating and friendly; happy to make conversation with us. The afternoon tea itself was very nice, the silver service is a welcomed added touch, although I do feel the food could be of better value for money. There wasn't a lot of sandwich left once the crusts had been cut... More
