We went Saturday evening. The food was very good. It was very hot and tasted lovely! The service was great and we felt welcomed. The party atmosphere was an added bonus. A very pleasant evening. Will definitely go back soon.

I have visited The Hostess regularly for many years but today went with friends who have not been before. As usual it was fab. Great food, welcoming atmosphere, attentive staff and all for the right money. When we left my friends felt like they had been coming here for years as well. Good job.
