Great bar with good staff and a great atmosphere. The beer and food were on the money as was the service. Will definitely call in again. Cheers.

Cocktails at good prices - especially for ponsonby. Friendly staff and a good selection of yummy food. The highlights were the espresso martini and the fried chicken bites. They also showed the All Blacks game which made it the right choice for a Saturday night

Have been to the Chapel about 4 to 5 times and they have never failed to deliver. Staff are friendly and has quirky interior. A place for the unreligious.
