Bar serves Seafarers ale and puts Guiness on their list of boring beers (although available off draft). We had the potato skins with beer which were Ok ..full of bacon bits and cheese ..so greasy..what else would you expect. People were allowed to smoke at the edge tables so not what I expect from a bar in 2016.

Walked into Cochrane's for a beverage and enjoyed ale and terrific service. The people watching was great, as was the conversation with the server. Welcoming and a great break in the bustle of Hong Kong.

Great little place to stop for a drink and bite to eat in central. All open at the front so great for watching the world pass by. Extensive menu (I had the chilli nachos which was delicious) and a very wide selection of Belgian beers. TV so you can watch sport if you like. Lovely staff who remember you!

Seafarers Ale on tap and a very tasty burger. This is a low key and unassuming joint with un-airconditioned seating, right next hollywood road and the escalators levels

Salt of the earth, kind of a dive, but with a nice selection of beers and tasty burgers along with free monkey notes. Why do they throw the shells on the floor? Who knows! It's not high end restaurant, but you get a honest burger, with fries and that, that's pretty tasty. Probs not a date kind of place!

It's good for beer, burger is actually not bad. However, no AC, it was crazy hot, thank God there was a fan behind us to help cooling...

Good location - welcoming. We stopped for a couple of drinks during the day and a snack - the chilli nachos were great!! My husband was rather amused when he was served a 'chilled' London Porter from the fridge with a frosted glass. But the drinks were great, as was the food! We had our 2 young children with us...

Yep - it is a dive, but it is a reliable, comfortable dive. Beer list is very good and they've turned up some unique beers, including Seafarer's Ale on tap. Big fan of Cochrane's and I'll always pay homage when in HK.

Thank bladdamasta
