Popped in after a bit of Safari with friends for lunch. Great Steak and Fish, good cold beer and a lovely venue. Toliets were clean and I can't recommend highly enough. Nice mixed crowd of ages and people too. Would definitely go again.

Set in 21 acres of Karen, a leafy suburb twenty kilometers Southwest of Nairobi, lies the Purdy Arms. With a view of the famed knuckled ridge of the Ngong Hills (“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa) it is a relaxing place to stay, have a meal or drink or two.
