Nestled within King’s Cliff, the heritage British mansion hotel, Earl's Secret is part of a century-old legacy that dates back to when the place served as the majestic residence of Lady Maybn and Lord Reginald, often a playground for the rich and famous. Today, while the historic manor has been transformed into a charming hotel, the romance and grandeur of the bygone era lingers on. As present in the carefully curated menu, décor, and setting of the restaurant.

Locals and tourists, foodies or not, the Earl’s Secret is known to all. The locals refer to it as the Glasshouse restaurant, and why not? Imagine being served in a glass house on a hilltop! For those who fancy a change of scenery, the restaurant gracefully extends to the outdoors, offering mesmerising views of the valley – views that, among other things, have been known to settle many a spirited discussion on world affairs.


Fine dining with the license to be regally ravenous, yes. Here at Earl’s Secret, Continental, Indian, and Chinese cuisines are presented in a most lavish style. From French Onion Soup and Malabari Fish Curry to Braised Chicken in Hot Bean Sauce and everything in between, the Earl is known to have every note in its command – whether it’s subtle, sweet, sour, spicy, smoky, or otherwise. Not to forget the sumptuous breakfast buffet and the desserts that satisfy every sweet craving, there is something to appeal to every discerning palate.
