We stopped by the Hoste for lunch since the menu looked attractive. We ordered a starter and a starter-sized portion of scallops with two sandwiches to follow. The person who took the order asked if we wanted both starters together then the sandwiches and we said we did. Surprising then that only one of our starters appeared. The second (the... More

We decided on venturing to the Hoste for a celebratory birthday lunch, after hearing and seeing great reviews. Sadly the service let our experience down. Upon arrival we asked to dine in the restaurant, which was fine and we were shown to our seats. At first we were only given bar menus, we then had to ask for the restaurant... More

We were not disappointed, we had a fabulous room which was very comfortable, staff on the desk were very friendly and happy to help . However getting a drink in the bar... More

Booked here, for the 3rd March, my partners birthday. Initially made the booking back in January, when i flippantly commented that it was for my partners birthday. Arrived early, and had a few celebratory beverages in the bar, which is tastefully decorated, and welcoming, with a roaring log fire. We were then escorted to our table, by a charming young... More

Crab sandwich was good, although several pieces of shell. The coffee was very poor and service unfriendly.

We went for a massage here and then a coffee in the bar, Massage was great, staff are really lovely. My pet hate when you go for a coffee is when it comes back luke warm - the hoste is great for a good very hot coffee. Very comfortable bar - nice and bright. Not too busy

We've been to The Hoste many times over the years and seen lots of changes. We were looking for somewhere for a special occasion and my husband phoned and asked very politely what was on the menu this week. The answer was "6pm" - very brusquely. He repeated his question and was passed to another man who said "6pm to... More

Been here many many times. This place has got too big for its boots and lost its personal approach to its Customers. We were treated as an inconvenience to their NYE preparations in the marquee attached to the restaurant - flung doors open which meant freezing cold air came in - we complained and they said they were doing necessary...

Description
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.
