Channings Restaurant in Edinburgh is fine dining without the fuss: a delightful, neighbourhood bistro with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and a well-edited, concise menu of modern Scottish dishes. Our chef Adam Lonski uses fresh, seasonal and organic ingredients wherever possible, and has come up with some great taste combinations. Alongside our hotel guests, we entertain local Edinburgh residents at the restaurant all the time, particularly if there is a special occasion to celebrate. Diners can choose between set two- and three-course menus, the a la carte menu, and the gourmet, seven-course tasting menu, for a real treat.
