Swire Hotels has also created a stylish collection of locally inspired hotels in the UK: the first Chapter Hotel, The Montpellier Chapter, opened in Cheltenham in 2010 and was followed by The Magdalen Chapter in Exeter. A restaurant division was set up in 2013 to manage the company’s stand-alone restaurant operations. Our first restaurant Plat du Jour opened in November 2013 followed by Public and Ground Public in Quarry Bay and The Continental in Pacific Place which opened in October 2014.
