Wedding experience in 2012 was really good. Lovely room with well set circular tales and lots of room between. Service attentive and swift, but not too much between courses. Food was well presented and well cooked. Salmon cooked just right - no bones! Bar area was handy between room preparation but easy sofas were far too low and the disabled... More

Booked for 6 adults and 7 children, 2 of them being babies and requiring highchairs. Slight mix up with numbers booked, but soon put right. Meal was lovely and efficiently served. Plenty of choice and well cooked, infact delicious. Only criticism would be that I was charged £10 for each of the babies dinners, which I felt was a little... More

Having not been to The Hostess for some years it was brilliant to find that some things do not change. We had a large family gathering of 22 the first Sunday of 2016 and we all had an excellent lunch which was served by attentive friendly staff. For some it was their first visit and they said that they would... More

Sue and Geoff as ever were there to give a warm welcome. I was alone, my cousin falling ill only hours before the event, but I was seated at a table with ten other diners and... More

First visit for my family and myself and it was absolutely fantastic on 2nd January 2016. I had heard many glowing reports about The Hostess but never ventured before due to travelling.

It is so good to have these family get togethers especially in these busy times with people spread far and wide and in your case different Continents. Great to be part of it with you and the family - you know where we are now. More
