Description: 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.

“A Breath Of Fresh Air In Karen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Newly opened and still ironing out a few teething issues, this place is truly stunning. Many acres of forest and lawns with a terrace which looks over the Ngong Hills, not a bad joint to relax and while away a few hours with cold beers and awesome Virgin Mary's.

Food is yummy, staff very friendly.

Largest tv in Karen apparently, and a boisterous rugby following where the luck of the place meant we thrashed the Kiwis at rugby! Yay!

Enjoy for drinks, will be back many times.

Thanks so much for the kind review. We have just opened to trying our best to get everything right.

The rugby games have been great and thanks again for the kind review.
