Arrived last night without a dinner booking but the garden room/conservatory team found a table for us. Highlights were the lamb cutlets, sea bass and rib eye, and lemon cheesecake. However real stars were the team who looked after us - thank you The Hoste...More

I have been extremely disenchanted with the Hoste since it was owned by the stylish Paul Whitome and his then staff. I kept trying with the family, another chance, another chance, each time fairly poor. Yesterday however, hallelujah, fabulous! At last food served and felt...More

After retail therapy in the lovely town, we retired to the Hoste where we and our canine companion were warmly welcomed. A newly baked batch of warm scones were brought together with cornish clotted cream and jam, and a bowl of water for the dog....More

The food here is good, with a lot of seafood on the menu and other local produce. However you pay quite high prices because it is attached to the hotel. It attracts a lot of visitors from London who I suspect are used to the...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The Hoste needs to sort itself out! We were regulars on our breaks to Burnham but since the loss of Paul Whittome it is down hill all the way and we are reluctant to visit again because nothing is worse than a disappointing meal when expecting standards to be maintained. When we visit in May the food was great but the bar became a Kindergarten and the staff spent more time grouped at the bar talking and on their phones! Please let me know if it gets near it former glory.

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.
