Square Meal Review of The Chancery ?

A small and tastefully formed City eatery that ‘punches above its weight’, this simply furnished dining room may lack ‘ambience’, although that’s not necessarily to the detriment of a successful business lunch. Chefs come and go, but the ‘ambitious’ kitchen continues to incorporate modern techniques and on-trend ingredients for dishes that entice without scaring the horses: to begin, scallops with cauliflower is a fashionable pairing, here enlivened by horseradish, monk’s beard and nasturtium. A main course of Ibérico pork, meanwhile, sees a pleasing mix of smoked presa (shoulder), rib and crackling with pickled pear and heritage carrots, while desserts offer fun in the shape of pineapple cheesecake with ‘pineappleade’, black olive and Thai basil. The six-course tasting menu (£70 with wines) is an agreeable option, or you can choose your own bottle from the well-balanced list.

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: The Chancery

    The Chancery is currently celebrating its 10 year anniversary as well as the appointment of new Executive Chef, Graham Long, previously of Michelin starred Pied a Terre. As such, it seems an opportune moment to review this City stalwart. The restaurant spans a modestly sized dining room and a smaller downstairs bar. A new addition to this limited space is a separately located private dining area with a capacity of 35, boasting a flat screen large enough to appease the most ardent of football fans. This move away from enforced fine-dining and into a mode of service that puts the customers needs first is personified superbly at The Chancery. The food also follows the same principle of first being enjoyable for its taste, and then for its often remarkable finesse...

    The Food Connoisseur :: Elegant dining – The Chancery

    The Chancery is one of those places with glowing reviews, highly praised for good value fine dining. What luck I had when I saw it appear on “tastecard” offers and decided to book for my birthday last year. Hidden behind the backstreets of Chancery Lane Main Street. The restaurant has simple white wash walls to flood natural daylight. Dining tables draped with pure white cloths. There was a 3-course meal on offer for £39.50, however when we got there the menu had change. The manager kindly told us we could have something similar...

    vialaporte :: The Chancery // Holborn // London

    The Chancery restaurant has provoked one of vialaporte’s biggest debates, caused by some exceptional cooking and some not up to scratch service. Despite the confusion, we think diners should make up their own minds on this one by giving it a try. Orchestrated by chef Simon Christey-French...

Simon Christey-French

The Chancery’s Chef - Simon joined the Chancery as Head Chef in September 2012 coming from a truly exceptional background. Having formally trained in West Suffolk Simon began his career at the One Michelin Star Horn of Plenty restaurant before spending the next two years working with Michael Caines at Gidleigh Park (2*).

In 2004 Simon made the move to London to work with the revered Philip Howard at The Square where he was to spend the next three years. During which time he was named the 2007 Restaurant Association, “Young Chef of the year at the national finals.

Following this Simon went on to work as Sir Richard Branson's private chef before joining Jun Tanaka at Pearl for the next three and a half years, two of which as Head Chef. In 2010 Simon was again a competition finalist, this time in the National Chef of the year awards.

Having worked alongside some of the country's most acclaimed chefs it a great pleasure to introduce Simon as Head Chef at The Chancery with Sous Chef Zach Preece.
