We came here on a chilly, windy day and received a warm welcome. There is a nice selection of drinks with a decent view of the surrounding hills and lake. The barman was very accommodating and found the football match we wanted to watch on the TV. Nice spot for a chilled drink in the Sri Lankan hills!

We drank upstairs and played some pool. We were the only people in the pub but we were joined by a very charming bartender who made us cocktails. I regrettably forget his name but I had a really great time talking with him. The stillness of the place and the way it looked reminded me a lot of Twin Peaks,... More

We came here on recommendation of our lonelyplanet travel book. The Pub is located inside Alpine hotel. It is quite comfortable, but in our opinion it doesnt really transport an authentic Pub flair. At least not if you are searching for the smokey sort of a pub. Staff is polite. We had a sandwich and some drinks, prices were average... More

This place is part of the Alpine Hotel which is closer to the town of Nuwara Elyia rather than Gregory Lake. In the attic there is a sweet little bar with a ski-lodge feel to it. The beer was cold and reasonably priced. The view of the lake is rather distant so don't expect anything spectacular! The staff were friendly... More

I have been to this restaurant in 2013 and as well as in Dec 2014 - part of Grand Hotel. The foods here are very good and restaurant ambience is very good/attractive. This time I tried Indian Thali but I was bit disappointed with taste and presentation as well as varaities as I expected. Still recommended to tray to taste... More
