    Our experiences at Puddicombe have been outstanding. Unfortunately when we arrived and checked in with the hostess, that information was not relayed to our server. We sat in the greenhouse for over 20 minutes with no one coming into our greenhouse. Other greenhouses were being cleaned up, water being poured and orders taken. I do believe that when I went back in and expressed my concerns, we were immediately taken care of, and we were apologized too. Sometimes list does happen, please make sure you are aware of all your guests. Excellent wine, apps, dinner and dessert. See you in January!!!

    Dinner at the Puddicombe House was very enjoyable. Good food, good wine. The ambience is different as the restaurant is broken up into several rooms which is not a bad thing just different. Great job by Hanna, our server, with our dinner. She greeted us warmly and did a great job connecting with us. Overall, very nice and we'll be back

    My husband and I had a lovely birthday celebration dinner in a Greenhouse at Puddicombe House for the third year in a row. They did not disappoint. The Greenhouses are lovely and warm and charming, especially at this time of year with the Christmas lights and music. The food as always was delicious. The service was outstanding, and they even treated us each to a birthday dessert. Can't wait to go again and looking forward to the next birthday dinner.

    We booked a Garden Room last night and had a magical experience. Our outdoor “hothouse” room was surrounded by fairy lights and plants with great music playing. There was an electric stove to keep us warm. Our server Richard Loren was amazing. Attentive without being too much. Our food was brought to us in a timely manner. My cauliflower crust/ vegan cheese pizza was so delicious. My husband’s was also very tasty. We shared a lovely salad and wine. The serving staff in general at Puddicome’s is always really welcoming. They work as a team to make sure that service is perfect. We will be back again soon.

    Everything was great. My wife and I do not get out much since Covid, but there small private garden rooms are perfect. We started with lightly battered calamari and three large wild mushroom arancini. Well portioned appetizers. My wife had a perfectly cooked lamb shank with the best polenta side dish I have ever tasted. My pasta was a double smoked bacon with arugula pesto on orenchitte, again perfect.

    We came for my birthday dinner, and it was a great! The food selection was not over whelming, the atmosphere was perfect as well the music. One thing I would say was the service was a 4 out of 5 just because I got my food and didn't see my waitress until I was basically done eating and that's the only chance I got to ask for a drink re fill. Other than that, it was perfect, and we will be coming back. It was not busy, so I did expect her to come check on me at least one more time than what occurred.

    Puddicombe is usually my go-to for bringing someone to a nice yet casual meal. We reserved a greenhouse in advance on what was probably the warmest November day in along time. It started okay but by the time the meal was over I was way too hot. There’s no airflow now that they are in the larger tent. The Mushroom Arancini appetizer was delicious but I feel that $17 for 3 pieces was a bit much and not very sharable for typical groups of 2 and 4. The Deep Fried Ravioli was a larger in size but also 3 pieces. The service was excellent as usual, our waitress was attentive and kind.

    The whole point of having menus online is so clients can see if they LIKE what is available... yours is not update... so we were disappointed when the items we came for were not available. And when you print your menus on paper... so they can be updated on the fly at least they are up to date. So when the server tells us that many many people have complained that items are not available.. it is clearly not a priority for management. The brie (according to your server) was extremely popular, and is gone. The Butter Pecan Old Fashion is something we have sent everyone we know to try... so for it to be listed on the drink menu that is printed off an office printer.. there is no excuse. So I asked our server for two other drinks, he had no idea what they were... So now concerned that he even knew how to make a cocktail, I asked if he was making the drinks, or if there was a bartender, and when he said it was him - I went safe with a Crown Royal and Diet Coke.. He had no idea what I was asking for... and it took a few minutes to discern you do not carry Crown Royal, which is why he was lost. I appreciate the seasonal nature of your menu, and your choice to run with plain paper menus so the chef can adjust and tweak the menus... but then keep your info up to date. Our server was a sweet boy... but so out of his depth and untrained I am embarrassed for you. He doesn't know your wine menu. He doesn't know what goes in drinks. He had to be walked through our order (focaccia to start, and three mains) because he could not understand ONE appetizer and 3 mains. And he was so generous with the info that I am not the only one to be disappointed, and that despite repeated requests for up to date info, it is still happening. Our whole experience could have been saved if your server was trained properly on how to handle requests and orders - rather than throwing management under the bus. On the upside, he was attentive and friendly... just poorly trained

    We booked dinner reservations for our anniversary and were excited to try all the yummy things on the menu. We were seated and promptly ignored. We were in a room with 5 tables. Servers came in and out but no one acknowledged us. Couldn’t even get anyone to make eye contact with us. We watched another table have their entrees delivered about 10 minutes apart, they then had to ask for their meal to be reheated After waiting 20 minutes, we left. If someone had of at least said to us, sorry your server will be right with you…it’s busy… or whatever the reason was.

    Unfortunately their stereo system was down and it made it very awkward in the small room since we could hear other diners. Every one was being quite so it felt like we were in a library. Also with ceramic flooring the room felt a bit cold. Food was good and the century home is beautiful.
