We visited Chancel for the first time for lunch and decided to have Tapas, We chose 3 dishes each and they were all delicious all washed down with a nice bottle of dry white, The staff were welcoming and attentive and we will certainly return.

A small family run bistro, offering over 50 wines sold by the glass, carafe or bottle. All food is cooked to order, so we're not a place to visit if you're in a rush (unless you pre-order), but a great place to relax and enjoy fresh local produce. 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.
