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.

Expensive early dinner

We have stayed and eaten at the Hoste many times before but not since the new garden restaurant had opened, so when we happened to be in the area for the weekend we got a last minute table albeit much earlier than we would normally have liked to dine, but we wanted to give it a try. We were... read more

Evidently a new menu had just been implemented. Well it needs more work. The hot and cold seafood platter just does not work by the time you eat the cold food the hot food is cold. But don't bother with this starter its woeful, as were our main courses . The duck was pink when ordered well done and the... More

We started going to The Hoste over twenty years ago and have spent many fine weekends there. I am afraid it has now become a generic food machine, over priced for its fare and the quality has fallen away both in service and food. Such a shame as it was one of our favourite places. I am afraid size and... More

I visited the Garden Room with my wife for the purpose of afternoon tea. The service was to say the least shambolic. We were shown to a very pleasant table in the garden. We were then left for twenty minutes without a menu and further attention. We eventually summoned attention and after a further period of time ordered a cream... More

Dropped in here late for tea while on the way somewhere else. Haven't been here for years (about 25) and I remembered this as a place as a lovely pub/hotel that used to have great music in the evenings. Like many places in Norfolk this place as been Farrow and Balled. It all looks lovely and had been massively extended.... More

We had an evening meal here - four adults and two children - and it was meant to be one of the highlights of our holiday - it was NOT. The welcome was warm, but several of our hearts sank as we read the menu. The food was distinctly 'up itself'. It is never a good sign when one struggles... More

Arrived on Tuesday for lunch, and soon realised that there were a lot of unhappy customers . The food was ok but the service was unprofessional unorganised and best described by a fellow diner quote :the service is sh1t . Would not recommend a poor experiance.

We were staying in Burnham for the weekend and dined at the Hoste in the evening.The waiter and service was very good but the food though of good quality was in my view London prices and did not merit the individual a la carte prices and the wines very over-priced. There was no set-menu at say £35 per head to... More

Nice atmosphere but just seemed too busy to get things right. Shame as I'd heard really good things about it.

We called in to the pub part at the front of this smart looking place and had great salads and drinks in a cosy and comfortable bar. Nice staff and food. If you don't want to sit in the pub there are incredible rooms and restaurants opening in to a garden that seems to go on for ever as you... More

Description

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.
