About Host

Welcome to Host. We are very proud to have 3 divisions to our company: Host Restaurant, Host Bar and Host Catering; each having their own identities but all having the common factor of excellence. Host Bar and Restaurant are situated in the heart of the charming market town of Bishop’s Stortford, and are only a stones throw away from the main shopping parade and facilities. Our restaurant first opened in June 2000, with our outside catering services emerging shortly after, also forming part of the company’s foundations. Our outside catering division has it’s own kitchen trailer to ensure that we can cater for almost any location in the UK.

For the last 14 years Host has continued to grow and flourish; building on our high reputation of providing fresh seasonal produce and consequently a dynamic, constantly changing menu. In the restaurant, our open plan kitchen allows diners to see the chefs at work and be involved in the atmosphere of producing fantastic and well presented food. As for the wine list, each wine is hand-picked by the specialists at Host and the list is constantly evolving to accommodate new and impressive wine growers.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.

The Host Team.

The Host Terrace Bar

Have you visited our award winning terrace overlooking the town of Bishop’s Stortford? The Host Terrace Bar is open all year around. If you would like some food to accompany a glass of sparkling vino or that icy g&t, food can also be purchased inside at the bar between 11am-9pm, Monday-Saturday . Throughout the summer season until mid October food and drink is served outside on the terrace. Whether you fancy a spot of lunch with friends on a warm summers afternoon or would prefer a glass of Prosecco watching the sun start to set, our terrace is the perfect venue. We are in a prime location, at the very heart of Bishop’s Stortford, and boast a large seating capacity meaning a great atmosphere can be had by all. 


If you would like to hire the Host Terrace for an event , whether that be a small section or the terrace in it’s entirety, we will cater for your individual needs. To find out more about our catering services please go to www.hostcatering.co.uk , call us today on 01279 657000 or email us at bar@hostrestaurant.co.uk for further information. 

Please note that due to the terrace’s seasonal nature we are unable to take advance table reservations except for private parties and pre-arranged events.
