The lavish Runda Restaurant, The Lord Erroll has been closed down after it flooded due to the ongoing rains.

“Due to unavoidable circumstances, we would like to inform our valued guests that we will remain closed until further notice,” the restaurant said in the statement.

The restaurant is mainly known of hosting events which are attended by the elite and its well-manicured and picturesque lawns made it ideal for corporate functions and garden weddings.
