One of the best meals I have had in my life. The building was beautiful as well as the decor inside. Outside patio vibrant and trendy-lots of lights and good music.

The food was delicious and the service was amazing. My only upset was thinking the brie skillet was going to be bigger.

We love this place but usually sit outdoors. This time we ate inside. The decor inside feels life a cafeteria. The lights melts going bright then dime. They need to warm the room up with plants different wall colour and maybe candles on the table.
When I booked with open table I said it was our anniversary but they didn’t do anything special but noticed others celebrating anniversary’s got a nice dessert. Maybe the puddicomb house doesn’t look at OpenTable requests. Our server was great along with the food.

Only one suggestion: The doors to the interior and in the interior are heavy… especially for handicapped people. Perhaps some remote openers might help.

Food was simply perfect.

Beautiful old building well kept up. Food was fancy but average. Their chef needs to learn that less is more. Way to many flavours blended together. Food was quite salty but I think you should give it a try.

Puddicombe was a lovely evening dinner out. We ate outside on the front patio. The light strips came on once dark set in, and it was lovely! They had a limited menu, in my opinion, but we were able to find a good cross section of choices. We shared a salad to start, I had the pizza which could have easily been shared between two, if we hadn't shared the salad (had one each). I watched many meals go past me, and all looked amazing!

Our compliments to the talented chef! Every item on the plate had a special taste and aesthetic presentation. Delicious! Unique cocktail which I loved. Gorgeous location with minute attention to detail and decoration, inside and out. We were seated on the outdoor wraparound veranda, lush with hanging plants. Great ambience. Prompt, cheery service. Extraordinary tableware. Our best dining experience this year. We just discovered Puddicomb's and it will now become our place for fine dining.

A beautiful afternoon on the porch, with lovely service and delicious food. A few wasps however, in spite of their strong efforts to remedy the situation.

Good food, great service, slightly over priced - especially the alcohol. We paid 50 dollar for a bottle of wine only to discover that same bottle on sale at the LCBO for 9.95. We were
Absolutely shocked at the mark up. Food portions were slightly smaller for the price.

We booked a room at the Puddicombe House for our anniversary, scheduled some spa treatments and booked a dinner which was served outside in a wonderful 'greenhouse' type structure. The food at dinner and for breakfast was outstanding! For dinner we had an absolutely scrumptious flatbread bruschetta for an appetizer, my husband had the Short Rib Bolognese which he raved about and I had the yummy Ricotta Ravioli. We will definitely be going back for dinners in future as the food was amazing.

Colby was fantastic. For a business lunch, her required interjections were well-timed and seamless. The Chicken parm sandwich with greens was superb. And the Caprese salad left me wanting more.

I will be back.

Beautiful grounds and glad to sit in enclosed eating area outdoors. Sunny but cool day so wonderful spot to enjoy lunch. Server pleasant and efficient. Glad my food allergies could be accommodated. Most of our portion sizes were great except for short ribs, which was on the smaller side. All absolutely delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our shared appetizer of the Baked Brie, unique and delicious components of this appetizer. The trout and Cornish hen were cooked to perfection including the asparagus, so tasty. The service was wonderfully paced. They’ve done a fantastic job to create a warm ambiance outdoors under a large tent with plastic sides to protect against the wind, complete with hanging heat lamps! Can’t wait to return!

I had the trout dish for lunch. I was surprised it came solo with a few greens: was expecting at least a potato or rice. For $29 I was disappointed with this dish. However, the staff and environment are topnotch. The plastic tent outside is perfect with the heaters and plants and tables are well spaced apart. I hope to return soon to try another dish.

Everything was very good!! Creme Brûlée delicious. I did find the coffee too strong, prefer a coffee maker coffee, dripped. Also, a carafe of coffee would have been nice on our table, not individual cups.
Loved being in the big clear tent! Thank you to our lovely waitress Kirby.

A special dinner to celebrate our anniversary. A somewhat limited menu but everything we had was superb.

Our Brie entree was excellent with an interesting mixture of fruit and nuts to compliment the melt. Being a cold wet night I ordered a soup. An excellent mixture of butternut squash a bit thick for a soup but hit the spot with an incredible flavour.

My wife had the ravioli while I had the Frenched Pork Chop. Presentation and flavour was excellent. Good portion size

A complimentary celebration dessert was both sweet and light wrapped up with a hot cafe americano made for an enjoyable dinner and evening
