Pleasant pub atmosphere in the dining room but outstanding food. Lamb skewers absolutely delicious ditto brisket to start with. My wife's sirloin steak was perfectly cooked with interesting and delicious roasted cauliflower. Dessert of rhubarb sorbet and lemon posset all home-made and wonderfully tasty. Excellent service and our food arrived very promptly.

We were recommended to dine at Chapmans by someone who lives locally and we're not disappointed. The service was excellent throughout, so too the quality of the ingredients and combination of flavours. Highly recommended.
