The Chinnery is a gem of old British traditions, top level white glove service and traditional food. Service is really top notch. The decor reminds one of an old gentlemans club. Food quality is good and a great selection.More

Good old fashioned English style restaurant. Great ambiance and a bit of a HK institution. Food is pretty good but very expensive, 1800 HK$ for lunch, 2 course without alcohol for two people. This is one for your expense account! Service could also be better.

Description
Named after the famous British artist George Chinnery, The Chinnery enjoys a relaxed club-like atmosphere with deep upholstered armchairs, green leather banquettes and warm wood panelling.

Offering a laid-back alternative to our fine dining restaurants, The Chinnery specialises in traditional British cuisine with classic dishes such as bangers and mash, fish and chips, and steak and ale pie available for lunch and dinner.

Home to one of the world's largest collections of single malt whiskies, The Chinnery has over 100 varieties for guests to try. We also serve chilled draft beer in custom-made silver tankards by a veteran staff who know many guests by name.
