The HillClub

The Hill Club, built in 1867, was originally an exclusive gentlemen’s club consisting of a billiards room and a bar. The Tudor-era style property now functions as a hotel, but as preference is given to members, it is best to make an advance booking should you wish to stay here.

The Hill Club still holds on to some of its former regulations, such as requiring guests to adhere to a dress code. However, it has changed some of the old regulations, and now welcomes women, children, and all locals in general. It also has four clay tennis courts, which are 20 th century additions.

The Club serves traditional English fare, in addition to eastern cuisine at its restaurant. Note that you must be dressed in a suit and tie to dine at the restaurant. This quintessentially British establishment is well worth a visit for some good food and of course, for its old-world heritage.
