Once again we had an excellent meal at The Chancel with first class service. Our starters were very tasty and well cooked. For the mains we went for the February 'beer' special, I had the steak & Kidney pie with Jail Ale and my wife had the steak & Guinness casserole. Both were delicious. A highly recommended venue

Stumbled cross this bistro and lucky to get a table without booking. Great atmosphere and good food for a pre- theatre dinner at 5pm. No rush to leave so could take our time and soak up a welcoming atmosphere.

The restaurant itself is lovely and has character. The food was delicious and you're not rushed. There's time to relax and talk between courses. The staff are lovely! They're friendly and extremely helpful. Will definitely be going back

There was a band and caller, the Haggis was Piped in, all the guests wore Tartan or Evening Gowns or Black Ties. The atmosphere was one of happiness and laughter all night. Hats of to the... More

Attended a tapas night solo but never felt alone, but the other diners were chatty and lovely, the staff always fantastic and friendly, the food.. completely scrumptious! 10 massive tapas courses with lovely fresh bread to eat with courses or finish up the leftovers on your plate between courses. From mixed bean salad, chorizo and honey, beef goulash, meatballs, seafood... More
