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.

I stayed at the Hoste Arms with work many years ago and loved it, so I took my boyfriend there when we were in the area this weekend. We went partly because Burnham Market is beautiful on a summer day, and partly because we had our dog with us and I knew how dog-friendly the Hoste is. There's a new... More

My wife and I have a second home just a couple of miles from the Hoste and the last time we went there was about 18 months ago, late one evening. We weren't impressed and didn't go again. Then last Friday one of our usual places was full and we tried the Hoste again: really great food, lovely atmosphere in... More

We enjoyed both lunch on Saturday and dinner on Sunday. The dinner was one of The Hoste's jazz events and it really was excellent. The food was great and the staff are really friendly.

The Sunday lunch was small in portion size, a teaspoon of mashed carrot and one floret of cauliflower, two roast potatoes, one slice of beef (although thickly sliced) and a dried Yorkshire pudding similar to the frozen types seen on TV adverts. Gravy could not really be described as such - had consistency of water. What was so appalling was... More

This place is a hotel with a pub frontage and seating outside, but with indoor seating and a back garden. It's all tastefully decorated and it's a pleasure to sit in any of the aforementioned spots, but especially out back. The menu choices and certainly the prices add to the feeling of it being fancy, so I was expecting the... More

We were a party of nine visiting on a Sunday evening in late June. There was a Jazz concert taking place in the main dinning room which added enormously to our enjoyment. We all enjoyed the food. The fish starter for two to share had some great local oysters. I thought the Norfolk lamb main course , £18 was outstanding.... More

My food was lovely, my husband found the crab starter average, he has had better, but the rest of his meal was good.

With so many lovely beaches and walks nearby The Hoste is the obvious choice for a stopping point. We have been here before so was aware of it being pricey but we enjoyed our last meal. The food was very good once again, especially the whole Dover Sole. The Hoste have dropped marks for a few things, first of all... More

If this restaurant was in London you would have to book months in advance, and everyone would be craning their necks to see who they recognised. Everything we had was absolutely delicious and excellent reasonably priced wines with a great choice by the glass. Lovely helpful waiter and very good service. Having seen some negative reviews i can only think... More

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.
