Great food. Great drinks. Great people.

Opened in October 2014, the family-run Chancery Beckenham is the sister pub of The Jolly Woodman, Chancery Lane.

Hi Everyone,

In light of the recent government business support initiatives and the continually evolving situation of the virus we have decided to close our doors on all services while we reassess the situation and explore 3 things:

1. Best way to protect our staff from both a health and economical point of view.

2. How we can continue to serve and help the Beckenham Community through these difficult times.

3. Look after our family business for the coming months so we can enjoy what @chancerybeck and @thejollywoodman have to offer when we beat this challenge.

We want to say a big thank you for the copious amount of messages and support this week, it’s greatly appreciated. We can only ask that you continue to support us through these difficult times in any way you can and of course, come and have a few pints and dinner when we overcome this!

In the meantime keep an eye out on our social media for any updates. If anyone needs some help or assistance please just email or message us! We are happy to pick up prescriptions, shop and run essential errands for customers who need our help. For now, please look after yourselves and each other and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Lots of love all The Duffys and Staff xxx


The Chancery pub provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere unrivalled in the area – with an exceptional seasonal menu and great range of quality beers, ales and handpicked fine wines to accompany it.

With a rapidly growing community of returning customers, The Chancery is quickly building a reputation for providing a consistently high standard of food. We are proud to offer a contemporary, quality, seasonal menu. Never lacking in attention to detail and creativity, every dish that leaves the Chancery kitchen is created using only the best locally sourced, organic ingredients.

For parties of more than 20 people, we have a private room available, in keeping with the contemporary vintage decor of the main dining area and bar. You can pre-book food from our seasonal set menu, we can provide canapés, or alternatively a hot buffet – all created on the premises, from fresh ingredients. For more details please contact us.

We are hiring! We are looking for an experienced kitchen porter to join the team so email over your CV and become part of The Chancery family.
