We holiday in Thornham most years in August and we had hoped that after a couple of years in post Paul Whittome's successors would start to turn the corner and bring back the standards we all used to enjoy. A lunch and a dinner later and believe it or not its much worse than it was last year and that... More

We loved the whole meal - in particular the bread and butter - it was quite expensive so really for special occasions.

The Hoste Restaurant is almost as good as I hope it's going to be, but not quite (particularly for the price). The pasta was ok, but a bit dry and needed more chili, oil and lemon. My partner's crab sandwich was plump and delicious, though, and he was satisfied. This is the third time I've tried it. Hope it's a... More

We ate here on Sunday evening 10/8/14. The setting of this establishment is in one of North Norfolks' most prettiest villages. The atmostphere and surroundings inside is pleasant and quietly efficient. We were firstly shown to a very pleasant reception area prior to sitting to table and enjoyed a drink here. The staff are knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly.... More

Dinner was ok but portion size was mean considering the prices, some dishes were good but others were bland. I had a dish which was supposed to contain chilli,garlic and ginger but tasted mainly of soy sauce. Breakfast here was average at best, eggs benedict sauce was so vinegary it had to be scraped off to be eaten.

We had a fantastic experience last time we ate here. On this visit it was terrible. The sea food assiette which had been so delicious previously, looked like something the cat had already eaten, with mashed up fishy dishes, rolled into balls like play doh. The salad it was served on was limp, bruised and yellowing, I seriously wouldn't serve... More

We've been visiting The Hoste Arms for the last 10 years, so we decided to take our son and daughter-in-law for a treat. We aimed to have a drink first and then lunch. To say we were disappointed was putting mildly, out of the 4 drinks we ordered 2contained animal hairs, one drink was promptly replaced and not charged for,... More

I have had three pints of your beer over three days and each one tasted terrible. The first one I left I almost wanted to ask if chips accompany my pint, as it tasted of vinegar, the second I drank but didn't enjoy it , the third I took back and changed it for a pint of larger and I... More

Only went for a lunch at the Hoste. The former pub has been totally redeveloped. The service was excellent and we were not rushed. The Hoste has a very interesting Nelson/ Hoste exhibition. The décor is first class with an great outdoor eating area.

We had the mixed seafood starter between us and it was excellent, with a portion of every seafood starter on the menu, and there were plenty! I had duck for the main course and my daughter had steak, both were filling and tasted good. Unfortunately I had no room for a dessert!
