Been to The Hostess few times in the past and there has always been a full choice menu with a professional service. I am of the era of Fawlty Towers and I must say the lack of choice menu and the lack of professional service was absolutely apt. The meal was great, the staff played there part and the actors...

We went to the Hostess on Saturday 18th October to the Fawlty Towers Experience, something that we had booked in January and had eagerly awaited since then. We were not disappointed. The evening started promptly at 1930 hours when Basil, Sybil and Manuel all brilliantly played out an evening of laughter. I don't want to say more on this so... More

From entering to leaving it was just first class food and entertainment . Whilst waiting to be taken to our table the show was going on around... More

Often come here for formal Rotary functions. The service and choice of menu offered on the night is always first-class as is the attitude of all staff. Nothing is too much trouble and the management make sure that your formal event runs smoothly.

No matter whenever you wish to visit the Hostess for a meal it is a pleasure to be greeted so well by the staff and owners. The food and attention to detail both in preparation and presentation is first class. And most of all they have the pricing right Richard Booth

Thanks for the kind words We think that sunday lunch should be for all the family so pricing is important. Will pass on your kind words to staff to show them that their work is noticed. More
