Review on The Chancery
The Chancery is discreetly hidden away on a corner site just off Chancery Lane, this imposing building has been transformed into an exclusive contemporary restaurant with mahogany floors, arches and walls hung with works by artist Stiliana Alexieva.
Andrew Thompson and Zak Jones used to run the highly regarded Clerkenwell Dining Room, but have now sold it so that they can concentrate their efforts here. The food is confident, with bold ideas and seasonal touches very much to the fore, whether it's cassoulet of wood pigeon with Jerusalem artichoke crisps, roulade of hare and foie gras with fresh figs and pear chutney or fillet of beef with braised ox cheek and wild mushroom foam.
Fish is also strongly represented by - say - seared scallops, chorizo and tomato tart with orange verbena sauce or crisp fillet of sea bass with Cabernet Sauvignon vinaigrette, while desserts might usher in rum and raisin bread-and-butter pudding or spiced plum and custard crumble tart.
