Its an old Victorian style building nestled on a mountain top. It's quiet, offers scenic view and you can even stay here. Some rooms have a fire place too. Food is pretty good. Over all it's got a charm of its own

The ambience is old school, very charming and quaint with a lovely garden. The glasshouse seating is fantastic.... They have both indian and continental food on the menu. The desserts were yummy, especially the brownie. Though the service was extremely slow.

This is a well maintained beautiful building nestled on top of a hill with interesting history. The food was great and staff attentive. We particularly enjoyed being seated next to the fireplace with a pleasant fire going on a wet and cold evening.
