house of parliament of United Kingdom. This place provides an old world charm
of the British colonial architecture.
Ambience- The ambience completely justifies the name.
The Brit influence can be felt, very well as the ambience portrays the cool
look of the city of London. The walls are adorned with everything that comes in
mind when one thinks of the city: the tube, the clubs and the Trademark Double
decker bus. The lighting is a bit dim and the furniture is red and green. There
is ample seating space here, divided into different sections, which can serve
good number of guests at one time.
Food Menu- The menu is perfectly executed, serving
typical gastro pub food yet maintaining a balance in best of Indian and
International cuisines. Thus suits the hearty need of every individual
customer. One of the customized parts of their food menu is the description
about either the food or its origin.

sense and has been expertly paired with good choice of alcoholic and
non-alcoholic beverages. Some cocktails and mocktails are truly class apart.
Some of their starters in Vegetarian include…
-Palak Patta Chaat
– Crispy palak patta topped with yogurt, tamarind and sevs. This Indian chaat
option can never go wrong with taste and is made perfectly. Truly a repeat

filled with yogurt, kidney beans and salsa. A lip smacking Mexican delight to
- Mezze platter - a combination of favourite Lebanese

There is a great variety in the non-veg section too. Fiery
Chicken wings, chicken satay, fish n chips Juicy Lucy mutton patty burger and
not to forget the non veg platter dishes. Even the veg tandoori platter is a

Special mention to the Maska Pav with Anda bhaji, which
has a rich taste of butter and awesome Egg
Bhurji . Totally wins a huge round of applause among other non-veg

opt for Dal Makhni with Naan or a Parantha. Even the pizzas veg/non-veg are
very delicious, loaded with cheese and other toppings. The oriental fare which
includes the ever-popular chilli paneer and chicken were too good served with
noodles and rice.
Drinks/Shakes- A party is always incomplete without
round of drinks and HOC excels in serving the best of them. Deconstructed Sex
on the beach, Drunken tea master and the Smoked apple mojito were really nice
