We had an evening meal here with friends recently. We used to come here all the time, but it's the first time we have been in a few years. The menu was good - enough choice but not too much. We opted for 3 courses, but sadly the waitress completely forgot our starters! We didn't complain, but were a little... More

Booked here for post-graduation meal recently. Everything was superb, from the welcome to the wine via excellent food and discreet efficient service. My only regret is that we discovered The County at the end of my son's three years in the NE!

Upon arriving at the County I was amazed at how busy it was for a Monday night. . .it was packed and had a really good vibrant atmosphere. We had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for friends and were made to feel very welcome. The menu was varied and a specials board was also available. I had smoked... More

We were made very welcome on arrival and individually shown to our rooms which were in a separate building next door. Beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely comfortable. Food in the pub/restaurant both at dinner and breakfast was excellent. Very reasonable rates too. Would highly recommend.

A great pub which offers excellent dining but also serves fine ales. Never had a bad meal here and the staff are always friendly. Sunday lunch is excellent. Atmosphere is always vibrant. Give it a bash!

My wife and I were travelling by car from the English East coast to North Berwick on the Scottish East coast and we found The County a perfect place to break our journey both ways. It is just off the A1(M) and adds very little to the overall mileage. Our room in an adjoining building to the restaurant was compact... More

We had a fantastic weekend stay in The County to celebrate a wedding and the food was amazing, great service, very professional. Collette was very accommodating as we had a new born with us and a 4yr old. Loved the breakfast, eggs benedict was lush! Overall it was a fab weekend, a great place to stay and a lovely venue...

We visited for lunch and although impressed by the pub and the staff we left feeling disappointed about the food. The menu was extensive, and the food tasted pretty good but the portion sizes and vegetables in particular were very poor. We eat out a lot and we've never been anywhere with such small side orders and at around £20... More

We found this restaurant in the Good Pub Guide and decided to stay here as well as sampling the beer. The room were lovely, just like a bedroom rather than a generic and bland hotel room. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom. We were very comfortable in the room, the only slight issue was the shower cubicle, my fella is rather... More

Nice layout of restaurant. Quick efficient service. Having a bottle of wine served to u over the bar when your table is ready is not acceptable how ever. Enjoyed the meal but a little over priced. Wine also nice but cheapest decent bottle 20 pounds. Would go back tho.
