We celebrated my birthday dinner in one of the green houses. The fireplace was a nice touch and added to a lovely experience. I would highly recommend the bruschetta for an appetizer!

This was our first visit but it won’t be our last. From the drinks, appetizers, mains and dessert each mouthful was amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and I couldn’t have asked for a better spot to celebrate. Highly recommend!

Wonderful date night.
CONs- The greenhouse doors were so loud to open and close that it took us out of the moment a bit. The mahi mahi was bland. All other food was impeccable.


PROs- Everything food wise except one item was extraordinary. The cornish hen and brie starter were both exquisite. Veggies were delicious and crunchy. Ambiance was personal, simple and elegant (we ate in a greenhouse). Servers were diligent without hovering.

PUNCHLINE: Highly recommended for a date night/ special night.

This was our first time at Puddicombe House and we were not disappointed. We booked a greenhouse which was so cute. Electric wood burning effect fire and table lamp inside and a surprising amount of space. The food far exceeded our expectations and the portion sizes a lot bigger than expected too. Great value for money. The staff were excellent. Attentive yet not imposing. We felt in no rush to leave and they did not stand over us while we were eating like you get in some restaurants. It was just lovely. Definitely going to be my preferred place to go. If you haven’t been .....GO!

My husband and I went to “check it out”. Food was better than delicious and the presentation of it grand. Our server, while abiding by Covid 19 rules, was still friendly, hospitable and made our evening delightful. Thank you to all the Puddicombe staff.

It has been the first dinner date in a long while. The pandemic simply did not allow us, like anybody else, to go places. The Puddicombe House is a great location for a special occasion. The dining rooms in the old villa are opulent and feel last century Italian with shiny marble floors and high, Romanesque ceilings. Social distancing was very well put in place, and we had a room all by ourselves. The food was very well presented, although I was a little bit disappointed by my rainbow trout, which was overcooked and on the dry side. The waitress was very attentive and friendly and did her best to make us feel welcome and at home. We will definitely come back to the Puddicombe House for the next “big” occasion, and maybe also try out the spa or stay over for a date night at their bed & breakfast.

I had the best time at Puddicombe. The greenhouse they have was so cute and romantic. It was perfect, I ended up proposing to my now fiancé inside one of the greenhouse that they have 🥰
The food was excellent, and the service was impeccable. Definitely recommend this place and will be combing back again.

We went fit lunch on a sunny, rather warm day, and saw their outdoor greenhouses which I thought was quite innovative. We elected to sit indoors to experience the normal, eat-in atmosphere. Service was great and we enjoyed the warmth and the quiet atmosphere, until some other patrons showed up, but still, it was not bad....the quality, temperature and presentation of the dishes were great too!

It was a neat experience to sit and eat in the greenhouse, except the $10 fee to sit in there seemed a little much. The food was good but we feel like it is overpriced. Not enough bread with the brie board (half the brie was left as we had nothing to put it on), and the deep fried ravioli was great but 3 pieces of ravioli just isnt enough. Overall, a neat experience as I said but I wouldn't be going back all the time with those prices.

I’m vegan and they made quick and appropriate accommodations for me. The food was terrific, I got the penne with beyond meat sausage. I was also informed that there was a vegan cheese available which was also above and beyond. Compliments to the chef. Our waitress Faith was kind, professional, and courteous. The dining room we had was small and private which allowed for an intimate experience. The soft piano music in the background elevated the atmosphere. Looking forward to return again! What a wonderful experience!!

It was my birthday and we reserved 2 green houses for my family. It was awesome, good food, great atmosphere and best of all could dine with my family. My grandsons loved it! During Covid we had not been together as a family since before Christmas. The staff were great even with it being so windy. Hats off to all of you for making the experience a memorable one!
