As a couple whose nights out are rare with four little ones, when we decide to go somewhere we want and expect it to be perfect. Chapter one did not dissappoint. We booked to have their set tasting menu and it was absolutely delicious. We just cannot wait to return.

Myself and my boyfriend visited for my birthday in June. It was amazing, food was delicious and atmosphere was perfect for us. Staff were very friendly and there was no rush on anything. Very reasonably priced so you get what you pay for. Highly recommend for couples.

Sumptuous food served with panache in chic surroundings. Was a member of a group of about 15 people. The service was just as personal as if I was there alone. Highly, highly recommended.
