Great food and service. Enjoyed a family meal together. Something for everyone.
We had a picnic bench style table outside under the cover with heaters close by. It’s a good set up for current tier 2 restrictions. Burgers were delicious and good value. We were not limited to the tile at the table. Weather was terrible - rainy and windy but we didn’t feel it.
Just got back from a short break away and what could be better than the Chancery’s fish & chips to come home to? Always a favourite. We are so lucky to have this lovely gastropub as our “local”!
Great meal with family. Something for everyone, even my fussy 17 year old and vegetarian 20-something!! Brilliant starters to share - honey sausages, halloumi sticks, huge portion of hoisin chicken wings! Then brilliant mains and though full, we couldn’t resist a couple of yummy desserts to finish!! Great service! Great atmosphere
Lovely, helpful staff. Great place to meet friends with the outdoor seating
Lovely lunch, delicious pie, perfect on a chilly autumn day. All precautions in place and adhered to. The outside area is brilliantly put together and warm with the heaters. Thank you 😊
What a disappointment, this used to be a really nice gastropub but now it’s just a very average pub that serves burgers. If that’s what you are looking for it does this well but anything more, you will be disappointed.
Probably it’s because of COVID, I just it comes back to the old standard.
Doing a great job to keep people happy. Table service on the ball constantly checking if you need a drink. Brilliant service all round.
We've drunk at The Chancery before which is nice, but our first attempt at food there lefts us very underwhelmed and very unlikely to return to the restaurant...
The good: waiting staff, mains (roast and fish/chips) & 1 dessert (crumble).
Starter: Pita bread, humous, sunflower and poppy seeds. Pita sent out very burnt/blackened (we asked for it to be replaced), humous tasted of nothing, poppy seeds missing, sunflower seeds were placed on food in their shells - we're not birds so we tried but the result was a pulpy woody mouthful - I think you'll find they should be de-shelled before serving in order to be edible!!
Starter: Warm goats cheese, beetroot and carrot salad with pomegranate seeds. Warm salad was lovely but the missing pomegranate seeds were substituted with cold cucumber which just didn't work...
Dessert: The sticky toffee pudding should be a centre-piece dessert but sadly the sauce was burnt - immediately noticeable due to the bitter taste and burnt/bitter after-taste. We disguised it with custard to eat the cake, but had the chef tried a taste they would have immediately realised that the toffee sauce was burnt.
It's a shame because you'd think a chef would taste the food and be aware of the issues above, but being that they still thought it ok to serve a blackened piece of pita bread to a customer we just came to the conclusion that they really don't care about the food or the customer experience, so whilst we may return for drinks, eating at The Chancery is off the menu for us and we wouldn't recommend it for dining...sorry.
They have the garden set up extremely well with COVID measures.
It was a great experience.
Pleasant efficient and friendly staff made good food better
Best and safest pub in the area in my opinion , doing Covid Reg's really well - well done guys
Had the lamb curry special and it was fantastic!
Tasty food at reasonable prices. Friendly and prompt service. Warm and comfortable atmosphere
Great food and service, excellent wine, went out of their way to get me some horseradish thanks
Very friendly, family-run.
The mushroom stroganoff was delicious!
Really good food and service as always. Katie and her team work hard to keep everything running smoothly during Covid whilst ensuring the safety of their customers. Thank you.
Had a lovely time as usual. There's always a warm welcome from the staff and it's definitely our favourite Beckenham local.
Great place, great atmosphere, great food, great service! What more do you need? Rear garden is an oasis - and now there’s cover from the odd shower!
Lovely evening over drinks. If you’ve seen the chancery from the front maybe you don’t know that they have a great sunny terrace garden at the rear which is perfect spot for the evening! Prettily lit and great atmosphere!
Staff / manager was very helpful over the phone as we were a little delayed arriving and made sure the kitchen could accommodate the delay. We found a nice spot on the back terrace. The place was spotless and well appointed with good social distancing. Really friendly staff and nice freshly prepared food.
This is a great spot to meet friends.
friendly staff & great cheese burger. Will definitely return
The few times I've eaten at the Chancery we mainly ordered bar food but that said, the meals we have eaten were pretty good.
Ive been here a few times since lockdown was eased. Its very very well organised, the staff are friendly and the service is quick. The drinks are top notch too
Great venue to sit outside; lovely back garden; fab food; great value as went for 'burger night' for £12 including a drink!!! service great as ever - just a fab local venue with great ambience and friendly staff, perfect for drinks, a meal and a catch up
We had a lovely afternoon at the chancery, staff were attentive to all our needs and the table service for drinks works very well.
We all had a roast dinner which was OK, quite pricey for what you actually got and the quality of it. It was £13.95 but worth £8.
Best Pub in Beckenham , really organising the Covid issue very well indeed , makes you feel very safe and secure - Well done Kate & team x
Lovely friendly pub. Excellent service even when busy. Highly recommended
What happened to the food.... very under par these days
Really friendly staff, who offer great service. A lovely ambience and the food is delish. Definitely coming back here.
Had the pie of the day, was really nice, came with decent fries (not chips) a gravy boat and some broccoli and baby carrots. highly recommended. Staff really friendly too.
it's a lovely place with a great friendly service but the food is not amazing.
Quiet at the time we went so perfect for social distancing. Food was great value and tasty. Had a great chat with one of the staff.
Very Friendly and polite staff. Excellent organisation regarding social distancing measures.
Really lovely pub - discovered by accident and pleasantly surprised
It was a pleasure to return to the Chancery after such a long time of lockdown and the staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make our visit a real pleasure. Thank you all so much and please take care and stay safe. Best wishes, Sue
The food, although a limited choice was good apart from being served in cardboard boxes with wooden cutlery.
We were told that this was because of coronavirus, however another table had china plates and proper cutlery. When this was pointed out to the staff they never really explained why this was which we thought was disappointing
Hi Russel, thank you for your review. In light of recent feedback and are ongoing changes we are making post lockdown we have decided to go back to serving on plates and still having biodegradable boxes available for customers who feel more comfortable with them. Sauces and condiments will continue to be in single use sachets. Sorry for any confusion during your experience with us and we hope to see you again soon.
Simple menu, we all had burgers. My haddock burger was delicious, perfect Saturday evening in the pub stuff & there were plenty of chips. Staff were welcoming and friendly, this was our first post lockdown trip to the pub and we had a great time. We'll be back - soon!
Always been a great pub and are really doing a superb job is these Covid Times , very well organised thus making you feel extremely safe - well done guys
Very efficient service with a good ordering process. Our pre-booked table had been double booked which momentarily caused some confusion but the waitress sorted it instantly. Lucky there was a spare table for the other group.
Didn't have food, but otherwise all was good.
