We went to the chancel on a Groupon and had a lovely meal. Very good quality steak. Friendly service. Only criticism would be the chairs are not comfortable !

A small family run bistro, offering over 50 wines sold by the glass, carafe or bottle.

Primarily a Wine Bar, We are an adult venue and do not accept children under the age of 14. A warm friendly welcome awaits you.
