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.

we had their special steak on a stone, really good meat and very nicely presented. It represented really good value for money. this place is well worth a visit.

After all the pricey and fancy restaurants were mentioned, Purdy Arms came up in conversation as a local favorite. Decided on lunch there, and it was a great choice. Relaxing view of gardens and Ngong Hills, great service, and delicious menu choices. Opted for the burger and I have to say, it was one of the best burgers I've had anywhere. The prices are very reasonable. Can't wait to go again and try more of their menu.

A lovely day out. Go on a Saturday when they have an organic farmers market. Good simple food in a fun atmosphere, what more could you ask for.

With the beautiful, peaceful gardens and relaxed terrace, the Purdey Arms is a great place to sit outside and have brunch or lunch or afternoon tea. The staff are really friendly and the menu always impresses with simple but good food. The emphasis, apart from relaxed, is giving people what they want so don't be afraid to ask for variations on the menu items - the staff seem to be very happy to accommodate. The garden is fantastic for children. There are some interesting shops round the back, and a beauty salon, Streaks Ahead, which are also recommended. There is a huge bar inside.
