The Chancery Restaurant Review: The Chancery is a small restaurant divided into two dining rooms and made light and airy by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. The menu manages successfully to combine the classical with some extravagant modern flourishes. So seared fillet of mackerel comes with cauliflower, bonito, spiced apple and crispy millet grains, and slow-cooked spiced lamb neck with roast pumpkin, cavolo nero and toasted pine nuts. Desserts continue the emphasis on seasonal ingredients, so winter offers the likes of pear and rhubarb tarte Tatin with ice cream and chestnut, while the cheese board is topnotch. Service is slick and friendly; the wine list offers a good range. There's a downstairs bar that gets busy early evening. Set 2-course menu £35, 3 courses £42.50.
