Went for an early pre-England euro qualifier dinner on a Monday night. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but had filled up by the time we left. Good menu with a wide choice of dishes. Nice selection of wine. We both had the pie of the day with mash & veg, and a bottle of Italian red, which we really enjoyed. Good friendly service. Would return in a flash :-)

Delicious Sunday roast dinner - the chunky vegetables were yummy and the gravy was the bomb. All table were full - lucky we booked.

The Chancery was such a great find. We are always looking for gastro-pubs where you can have a great meal over a great bottle of wine and this ticked all of our boxes. The ambience was amazing and the service was awesome too - could not recommend more.

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. They had a couple of parties in but the service was still really good. Couldn't fault the food either - the squid was great, we had duck and sausage & mash for mains and both couldn't resist their desserts! The chocolate brownie was really nice as was the sticky toffee pudding although I suspect it had been microwaved as it was a little rubbery in texture. Would defo go back and recommend.

Excellent steaks - good value anytime but especially on Tuesday steak evenings. One of our party had steak pie with fresh vegetables and thoroughly enjoyed their meal too.

Revisited the CHancery on a quiet Tuesday evening. We had a very nicely prepared meal. Service was friendly and attentive but not overbearing. If only we could get a table for Sunday lunch - they are just too busy!

We arrived early, before the kitchen opened but were shown to our table and given menus. We needed that extra twenty minutes to make our choices from an excellent selection of food and wines! Great friendly service. We've been here for quick drinks after work, longer leisurely sessions with friends, Christmas 'party' lunch, and quick snacks - always excellent quality and service.

The food is outstanding quality and decent portions too. Definitely suggest booking as it gets very busy, especially on a Sunday. You have to try the Yorkshire puddings!

I went with my sister and this was our first time. We really enjoyed the food and the menu choice was great. In fact the most difficult part of the evening was choosing the food as there was such a great variety of dishes that I liked. The place had a really good vibe, not too noisy as we wanted to catch up and therefore hear our conversation. The staff were so friendly and attentive but not overly so. I will definitely return and may try the Sunday lunch with my family as I have heard good feedback on this.

Great Sunday roast lunch recently. We liked the menu choices noting there was a vegetarian option. The Service was excellent and attentive leaving plenty of space to savour our meal thank you. Only slight negative was that it was a bit noisy as there was a large number of children among the diners.

We visited here on Saturday and booked for 6pm. My partner and I live locally with our daughter and we had invited family over for dinner . We decided to eat at the chancery, great service , great food and lovely staff . We had a really nice time , also my daughter was kept occupied with some of the board games whilst waiting for food etc . There was an issue with one of the starters but the manager ( I assume was the manager ) dealt with the situation very well and we feel went above and beyond - thank you

I've eaten at The Chancery several times and it never fails to deliver: great selection of starters, mains and desserts - all of them delicious. Also worth noting that portions are just right, so you don't leave feeling over-stuffed!
