.25 pound would be ok- that's about 8% of the grainbill. It's on the high end for me (I'd use 5-7% for most beers) but it's not over-the-top at all.
An ounce of chocolate malt, just for color? That'd be fine. You'd be looking at an OG of 1.035 or so, or about 3.3-3.4% ABV.
If you're looking for a British-ish session beer, why not do a mild? They have tons of flavor, and are really the ultimate session beer.
