Just had a 2 night stay here and it has been upgraded with fresh decor in the rooms. I was in a first floor room and it was very spacious and very clean so well done at The County. Went to restaurant on Saturday in a party of 9 and food was excellent. Great service from staff all round.

The staff couldn't have been more helpful from initial email contact through to service in the restaurant and putting a lighter weight duvet on the bed. The food was excellent, well presented and with a good choice, both in the evening and for breakfast. Beer, too, was excellent, one can see why it's in the Good Beer Guide, which was... More

The County continues to be an excellent choice for good food, pleasant surroundings and a welcoming atmosphere. It is refreshing to have a choice of high quality gluten free meals. The salmon, king prawn and samphire served with garlic butter and asparagus was delicious. Friday night sees the choice of fish and chips and the specials board is always worth... More

Once again The County provides a great lunch in very pleasant surroundings. My wife and I just keep going back as we enjoy good food in a relaxed atmosphere. The starters of tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella with Parma ham and the leek and potato soup were particularly good.

We went to the County for lunch. We have eaten here several times in the past and have enjoyed our meal. The portions were very small. £18.50 for steak and balsamic tomotoes,there were 2 cherry tomatoes. The chicken and bacon salad was very disappointing. The bacon was hot but the chicken was cold, pasty and bland. The salad was very... More

Lovely Country village pub. Nice pre dinner drink outside on a lovely summers evening. Lovely menu. Good quality food. Wish I had the shrimp as appetizer after seeing all the dishes come out! All dishes very good. Deserts also really nice, had lovely Turkish Delight ice cream which was a first. Great spot

The County is well known for its excellent food and because of a recently diagnosed food allergy the chef sat down with me on my arrival and worked through how he would adjust the ingredients of the various dishes on the menu to accommodate me. What he achieved was superb. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Accommodation is... More
