Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I've been to The Hostess numerous times before. Always been happy, good venue for any celebration. The food is amazing, lovely atmosphere & the owners & staff are very efficient, helpful & friendly. No waiting around for your food to arrive.

This restaurant is great for any occasion, from your wedding reception to your funeral tea and anything else in between I have over the years enjoyed many wonderful meals both casual lunches to formal gatherings . The food is always prepared and cooked to perfection,...the staff are always polite and helpful, Nea and Andrew have continued the traditions of the excellence of the previous owners. You cannot go wrong here, excellent food at competitive prices.More

We visited this restaurant for my aunties birthday it seemed a little strange having to wait outside for the doors to open instead of letting people come in gradually. The bar staff were friendly and the selection of beer is very good and tasted nice....The restaurant reminded me of something from the 80s everyone sat on long tables. Service was a little back to front but the staff were friendly and helpful. The menu was ok, a little outdated though, I've not seen fan of melon on a menu for years ;) portion sizes good and the Stilton on the cheese course was very good. Not a bad place to visit, just needs a little modernisation, will visit again certainlyMore

Found the amount of food i.e. meat was absolutely ridiculous, so much so we had to leave most of our dinner as totally overwhelming. Note to chef: when carving beef it should be sliced and not in lumps likewise with the turkey!!

Went for a carvery mid week and found it to be outstanding. The quality was excellent and far better than any of the “chains” around. Meat was quality, plenty of choice of veg too. They even doggy bagged my leftovers meat! Drinks were very reasonably...priced too which topped off a great meal, we’ll be back.More

This is a great place to go for a carvery. They are very generous with their meat portions, and it is delicious. The beef especially is amazing. It melts in your mouth. There is always a decent selection of vegetables, and everything they serve is...piping hot. I wish they made thicker gravy, though. The service here is always outstanding, too. The staff are very professional and friendly. In my opinion this is the best carvery around.More

We went on 27th July for my father's 91st birthday. We all had the carvery. However I had a vegan menu with vegetables from the carvery , my son had salmon and my partner a ham and chicken pie along with the carvery vegetables. There...was also a good selection of Vegan sweets too. Staff are really really friendly. Definitely would go again. They also do Friday night disco with a 3 course meal.More

We visited for Sunday Lunch to celebrate the Ruby Wedding Anniversary of visiting friends from the USA. The attention to detail by the staff at the venue was wonderful, they decorated the table with celebration sprinkles and balloons, and even prepared special menus for the...event. The Sunday lunch type meal was excellent, served with a smile. Then after the meal we used the folly in the grounds to take some photographs. This was the icing on the cake. Excellent day.More

Yes this place has dated decor but we loved it. It was clean and more importantly the food was fab, lots of it, and the service by the staff was excellent. There is a great feel to the place and the staff couldn’t do enough...for you! It reminded me of the good old days of a dinner and disco venue. We want to have our Christmas do here. 10 out of 10!!More

Andrew and the team did an exceptional job of making our wedding day truly magical! Our day at the venue was absolutely perfect. The room was turned round quickly and differently each of the three times. Nothing was too much trouble, service and all the...staff were professional and friendly to us, my family and friends and created a seamless day throughout. In addition to the excellent service the food for both Wedding breakfast and evening meal was outstanding and again ran so smoothly. With a very well stocked and variety bar and excellent food and service we couldn’t recommend this amazing venue enough for your special event. Thank you again to all of you! Zoe and AndrewMore
