Welcome to the Puddicombe House, we offer casual fine dining in an elegantly restored 1868 mansion in downtown New Hamburg. Executive Chef Lance Edwards leads the culinary team. Trout and Scallops have become the most popular menu on the items over the years but we still make a wonderful burger that held the title of “Best Burger in Waterloo Region” We also offer overnight guest rooms, banquet facilities and even a salon and Spa if your looking to make it a weekend trip.

The outdoor patio area is very nice. The service was very good and the food was outstanding! The only issue that we encountered was that there were a few wasps but that isn't the fault of the restaurant.

food is interestingly prepared - some of the spicing is amazing. my husband enjoyed his calamari. I was disappointed that they've changed to a more "Italian" menu (I loved their perogi dish).
food and service are always great here.

Lovely old building, patio was very well laid out. Service was good. Italian seasoned wings were really tasty, salads were really good. A racing balls were a bit too crispy, but overall a really nice place to spend an afternoon.

Everything was perfect, with the exception of the price if your desserts. $12.00 is ridiculous! We’ll be back - but will pass on the desserts.

Great food and service. My rib roast was served with gongorzola, very different and tasty. It was noisy because of Christmas dinners with large groups, but not the fault of the restaurant....nothing they could do about it.

Stopped in on our way to Stratford. Elegant setting but somehow casual with very good food. Only complaint was food came out too fast between courses. Need to allow a bit of time to have conversation and eat. Great place!

My guest and I were very pleased to see an updated menu. Food was very good - we both enjoyed our meal; starter salad was a little small and I prefer a "traditional Romaine Caesar" but lovely dressing. All in all, the best meal I've had at Puddicombe!

This was an unexpectedly excellent meal. Beautifully presented. (Mains were steak and trout.) Recommended for an early dinner at 5 or 5:30, to get to Stratford for 8pm play.

We were quite disappointed. Warm plates would have been good. Asparagus was “stringy”. Dessert was lovely. Overall we found it a bit over priced. Our server was lovely. There was noise from workmen at front. Maybe we picked a bad day

The food quality and food temperature as well as its presentation were excellent. I enjoyed the scallop appetizer but found the portion size small relative to the price.

The server was friendly, helpful and attentive.
