You can get a first-class flat white

Often mentioned in the Sunday papers, “At The Chapel”, is a restaurant and bar in a Grade II Listed chapel in the high street. It’s the go-to place for coffee, wine or food – or just to snap up their freshly baked breads from their bakery. An ideal place to meet friends or to watch the world go by, in summer the sun-trap terrace is filled with the scent of jasmine. To top it all, the venue also hosts monthly events from inspirational speakers to classical recitals and screenings of world class ballets, making it an important hub for community activity.
