    Had a fantastic meal in one of the gazebos. All seven of us thought it was the best meal we have had for a long time. Our server Jill was very attentive and friendly.

    Food was delicious. We ordered soup. It was a very small portion in a very large rimmed bowl. It was delicious but maybe 2/4 cup at the most. No bread or crackers included. Bruschetta was delicious. Could they not cut it in 4 instead of three for the two of us? We felt very rushed.Receiving the bill before we were finished. We were the only guests in the restaurant! On a Thursday at lunch quite uncommon. When the bill arrived it was pretty hefty considering it was soup and bruschetta.

    We both had the Corish Game Hen and it was excellent. The service was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere peaceful and calm. We ate indoors but they did have an outdoor patio which was full. All in all an very pleasant experience that will be repeated.

    This was our first visit to Puddicombe House but it won’t be our last. It was a perfect patio evening. Our server knew the menu well and was able to tell me what was gluten and dairy free. Our meal was absolutely delicious. My husband received a yummy dessert to celebrate his birthday. What a lovely experience.

    So happy as a celiac to have gluten free options- GF pasta, GF cauliflower crust for pizza, and GF buns for hamburger. Thank You soooo much for options. My son visiting from Ottawa loved the food and looks forward to coming back when he is in New Hamburg again.

    Hard to choose the food as it all sounds delicious. Love the focaccia appetizer. Nice setting. Would have liked dirty dishes cleared away sooner and drinks refilled without asking. One error on the bill, but was easily corrected. Server was friendly. Would return. Enjoyed the atmosphere and food.

    In Sept 2021, I booked the B&B and spa experience for our anniv. and we enjoyed wonderful meals then. Based on that experience, I booked my birthday dinner for mid-Sept assuming we would once again enjoy the food and outdoor dining. Sadly, the fabulous ambience they had a year ago with the large white 'gazebo-style' canopy with sides, plants, heaters, etc. was not there when we arrived so we chose to dine inside instead. The first flavour of sangria I ordered was out so got my 2nd choice. We recalled we had fallen in love with their bruschetta last year so ordered that as our appetizer... alas, not the same; the one we liked was a flatbread loaded with tomato and this one was a a very thick potato loaf topped with loads of sauces and less tomato. We had a couple of questions about the pastas - my husband ordered the Short Rib Bolognese, which he thoroughly enjoyed - I ordered the Truffle & Balsamic Spaghetti (which also came with lardons of bacon) but needed clarification on the 'Hen Egg'. Our waiter was very good but new & needed to ask the kitchen, so came back and told us it wasn't sliced, just a whole egg on top, so I asked that it be served on the side as I was having a hard time picturing an egg sitting on this pasta. As it happened, it was a raw egg and a different server told us that it was to be mixed into the hot spaghetti mixture and it would cook due to the heat ... ok?! I actually did this, but my surprise came when the mushroom, bacon, truffle spaghetti turned out to be unexpectedly SWEET. When I asked our server why this would be, he kindly went to the kitchen to ask and reported that honey was added to this dish...why? And why wasn't there some indication on the menu that this was a sweet pasta? At this point, I just 'sucked it up' and ate the meal. We were offered a complimentary birthday dessert (ice cream), which we should have declined as it took 15 min (busy night) and arrived just as we were about the leave. Not the birthday I had hoped for.

    Had a best friend dinner date for my birthday. This was her first time at Puddicombe House and I knew she would love the food and ambiance as much as I do. Our server Hannah was amazing! The food was as always, absolute perfection! We had the Arancini, Caprese salad, Bruschetta, Margarita pizza and Pickle & Broccolini pizza with the white wine sangria. We couldn’t have been happier!!

    A gorgeous historical house that has been beautifully restored. We ate on the wrap-around veranda, which was lovely (except for the usual autumn hornets). The lunch menu was quite large and varied. The food was delicious and the server was helpful and attentive, despite the how busy the restaurant was. One of my best overall restaurant experiences since the beginning of Covid.

    As a mature woman I am miffed when a wait person addresses me as "you guys". How about "good evening ladies." The restaurant offers a good selection of dishes. The braised beef was tasty as was the accompanying potato dish. My companion ordered the perch and found it delicious. Prices are acceptable provided the high standard of food continues.

    Our first visit was a Saturday night, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We requested a quiet, indoor table however two large groups made that impossible, so they graciously offered us a greenhouse gazebo (usually reserved for groups of 5-8). It was lovely, the service from start to finish was impeccable. We started with two appetizers - deep fried ravioli and the fresh focaccia with three dipping options. Both were incredible - highly recommend. Entrees were Chef’s fried chicken sammi and the pizza Margherita. Both exceptionally well executed. We ordered a Creme brûlée and were also brought a complimentary almond encrusted ice cream dessert, with Happy Anniversary written in strawberry sauce. Despite being quite full, we couldn’t leave without eating every last bite. Also highly recommend the strawberry rhubarb sangria - super refreshing! There was a wedding taking place which at times raised the overall volume on site, but the gazebo afforded us lots of privacy for conversation while enjoying all the goings on outside. We will certainly be returning - it is a must try for anyone in the area.

    This place exceeded my expectations. The service was timely and efficient. All staff from kitchen to server ran like “a well oiled wheel”! I enjoyed my main dish of perch combined with asparagus, pesto and cornbread. It was an interesting, yet excellent combination of foods. The atmosphere of the quaint and comfortable porch is a touch of history as well as fond memories from my past which only added to the enjoyment of the evening. . The stunning flowers boxes added to the ambience. I would highly recommend this venue.

    Fresh pike (fish) and ricotta-spinach ravioli were superb — artfully prepared and plated. Spicy sweet potato soup also was a standout. Elegant, sophisticated dining in a charming small town — that’s why we return and will again.

    Waitress was not attentive once food was served. Walked by with water jug when started eating to see how everything was. Did not refill water or ask if we needed more drinks (our glasses were empty). Did not check on us again. My short ribs were okay but my husbands streak was very dry. Calamari was excellent
