When you hear that a restaurant is located in a posh area such as Runda, you already create a picture in your mind and expect the venue to look beautiful. Lord Erroll does indeed look beautiful. The venue has a strong colonial English feel; polished mahogany floors, large veranda going around the whole house which opens up to a lush and well manicured lawn. Several artworks by Kenyan artists are strewn all over the place, giving it a modern Kenyan feel. Other rooms, such as the bar had photographic memorabilia reminiscent of the 1930’s and gave that warm vintage feel. The mid-morning Nairobi sunshine only amplified the beauty of this venue. All this magnificence made me anticipate all that was to come our way for the rest of the day.
