Book a romantic dinner in the restaurant at The Hoste Hotel, where the Chefs create dishes that owe much to locally sourced produce, not least a great selection of local seafood from the nearby coast. We have a high quality, informal, relaxed atmosphere with very friendly and efficient staff. The imaginative menu is complimented by a 200-bin wine list that includes some keenly priced classics.

Good lunch in sunny garden

The Hoste is a large hotel in the beautiful boutique town of Burnham Market - service was very slow for morning coffee in the conservatory, but absolutely fine for lunch in the garden. The food was good, wine list good and waiting staff friendly.

I have eaten here a few years ago, when the food was of better quality and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the quality is now average in relation to the price, which is on par with central London prices. Our bill of £140 was for dinner for three, where we had a starter and main course each and one drink each (a... More

Hoste and hospitality go together like a married couple. They are certainly in evidence at this fabulous hostelry.We dined here twice in our four day break. Both occasions food was very good. Bar snack served very quickly and eaten almost as swiftly. Sunday evening a more leisurely dining experience, but as always with Hoste very attentive serving staff, food was... More

Took my wife for supper at the Hoste. It was horrendous to see how far it's standards had dropped. Having booked for 8pm the 1st problem was them trying to find our reservation. Once seated, crammed in a corner with other tables almost on top of us we ordered our food despite the waitor not speaking great English. 45 mins... More

I visited the Hoste for my birthday celebrations last weekend. As a surprise my family had hired the private dinning room downstairs which was beyond lovely. All personally decorated with a private waiter (Lev) I was thoroughly impressed. Lev did a super job looking after us and no request was too much trouble. Will of course be going back and... More

We hadn't dined at the Hoste for some time and were a bit worried by some poor reviews and that we were able to book a table for lunch on Easter Sunday at very short notice.

Having read a few poor reviews of The Hoste I had to write in contradiction. I have stayed there three times now, and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the attentive, but fun staff.

I ate at the Hoste Inn six years ago, when the food was fantastic. I gather it has changed hands about four years ago. The average price for a main course in the evening is £24 plus vegetables on top of that. I'm happy to pay this when the food is superb, but it is no longer of that calibre.... More
