Oh how I want this place to be good. Love sitting outside, love the decor, waiting on staff so pleasant and food ok. So what possibly could be wrong then? Well, it doesn't all quite happen seamlessly, or as it should. I have no issue with the price if it is as good as it should be, but it isn't.... More

I visited the restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. we arrived about 10.45am and decided as it was too early for lunch we would have coffee and cake...what a mistake! Despite there being a caffetiere of coffee listed on the menu we were told that they didn't serve that so we ordered coffee for two plus one slice of... More

Beautifully situated in the delightful village of Burnham Market, The Hoste offers a good standard of food and drink. We sat in the walled garden and were very comfortable. The menu was varied, and we settled for crab sandwiches and chips. the food was good although I thought the bread was a little dry on the outside, making me wonder... More

we recently went for dinner here for a friends hen do, the food was absolutely delicious, the waiters were professional and friendly and the building itself was luxurious. However there is an extremely unfriendly local women who obviously thinks she can speak to a group of girls as she wishes because apparently she has money, she is what I can... More

Plenty of choices and helpful staff, good atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. Could benefit from a bit of competition to help it raise it's game

We didn't really fancy the main courses so had the most wonderful split pea and mint soup with a bit of ham hock as garnish and then shared the fish platter for two (which was billed as a starter). We thought it would be small, so ordered a side salad and chips which we didn't really need. It was absolutely... More

We visited on Saturday with a group of friends we were going to order lunch. But didn't in the end due to reason that we couldn't enjoy our drinks without staff coming over bothering us. No prices on menus. Just some silly codes. We ordered 4 drinks and took 3 lads to serve us!! The only good thing was toilets.... More

This is a little gem. The food is amazing! I had a three course dinner which was faultless. The chocolate desert was second to none. I loved it.

We have been coming to the Hoste for about 8 years and it has always been a special place for us. Sadly, our last visit will be our last, as it was such a let down. The pub still has a great atmosphere which was the saviour of the weekend. The restaurant feels like a conference venue and as such... More
