Food is more than just fuel for the body: it is a source of spiritual, social, cultural and physical nourishment.
The three meals a day are principally homegrown and homemade, based on the farm produce, or locally sourced and vegetarian.
We do both North Indian and European / Western cuisine.
We specialise in local Himalayan dishes, such as sidku (a kind of steamed bun) eaten with ghee and maash-rajmah (daal made of kidney beans and black lentils), as well as wholemeal crepes, eaten with honey and ghee or roasted poppy seed chutney.
Daily dairy products from our small milk herd are available, including butter, yoghurt, ghee, buttermilk, paneer, and our developing range of hard and soft cheeses, including our own cream cheeses, cheddars, and hopefully apple-wood smoked blue cheeses in the near future.
Non-vegetarian dishes can be provided on request. Please let us know well in advance. We are aspiring towards having our own free range eggs, chicken and mutton (goat) sausages, smoked or unsmoked, using fresh mountain herbs.
We also have a good-sized barbecue, with outdoor dining facilities, weather permitting.
Evening tea is usually served with our home-made cakes.
Alcohol is not served on the premises, but you're most welcome to bring your own.
Please note: We don't keep snacks like potato crisps or fizzy drinks and since the nearest shops are 12 kms away, guests are advised to shop en route. There is a (new) small shop in Rukhla, open from 3 - 7 pm, with a limited assortment of goods.
