We would like to invite you to come and experience for yourself the warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere of The Chancel Wine Bar and Restaurant. Couple that with the superb selection of wines (more than 50 to choose from), most sold by the glass, great food and we know that you`ll be back.

A Wine Bar and Bistro on the ground floor and a romantic candlelit dining area downstairs which can also be booked for smaller private functions makes this the perfect place to lunch, unwind after work or to relax with friends.

Regrettably, as a Wine Bar we are unable to accept children under the age of 14.

We receive daily deliveries of Fresh Fish and use local suppliers for our Meat and Vegetables who enable us to bring you the freshest ingredients. Everything is cooked from scratch and to your liking, so we re not a place to visit if you`re in a hurry but perfect for a relaxed dining experience.

We take our fish seriously and go to great lengths to ensure it comes from a responsible and sustainable source. Keeping it local is important to us, and we shop daily at our local fish market to ensure the fish on our menu is fresh and in season.

All our farmed salmon and warm water prawns are responsibly sourced from independently certified farms using sustainable feeds. Tuna is caught using pole and line and our Scottish Mussels are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Where possible fish is as local as possible, our Scallops and Crab are caught within a few miles from Plymouth.

Special Dietary needs can be catered for, give us a call to discuss and we`ll do our utmost to delight. We offer good choices for Coeliacs (most of our menu can be Gluten Free) and Vegetarians alike.

To Book a Table Please use the booking link below.

You`ll find us in St Andrews Street (next to St Andrews Church in Plymouth).

Don`t take our word for it, come and see for yourself, we look forward to meeting you.
