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

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
