We'd been to Chapter 1 with friends back in January and been very impressed with the subtle ambience, friendly service and excellent food, but a couple of Sundays ago they were just outstanding!
I was just entering yet another decade and we decided at the last minute (about 4 days notice) to celebrate with a lunch party with about 20 friends. (Chapter 1 have a super value Sunday Lunch deal which for the quality of food & service can't be beaten in the area).
All but 4 of us had never been to Chapter 1 before, but they delivered their full range of dishes to the delight of everyone without exception! We had 2 tables of 10 each, and Peter the chef did a remarkable job so that everyone at a table was served at the same time.
I started with Black Pudding & Queen Scallop salad...the scallops were cooked to perfection! For main course, I chose the 28-day beef which was tender & tasty and cooked just as I like it. Others had thick pork steaks, roast chicken, or a fillet of cod. And a good choice of delicious desserts to end up with. So good was the day, that several of our friends said they'd be sure to be back.
Thanks to Peter, Jenna & their team for looking after us all so well!
