An interestingly delightful place. Another Spoon, but some interesting little things scattered around. One of the cheaper Spoons, cider 40 p a pint cheaper than Eastbourne. Didn't eat but what we saw looked good.

I have been drinking in the County for over a decade as it is in my home town. I was home visiting my parents over the summer and we popped in for a late lunch at about 3pm on a weekday. We were a party of 5, including one 6 year old. He had an adult meal. Three of us... More

Disgusted with service. Me and friend had a bottle of wine and wanted to leave with the bottle that we payed an extortinate amount of money for but were not aloud- already treated like criminals with trying leave but not aloud. Then went to toilet to go to to loo but because we wine with us, treated like absolute criminals... More

We often use Wetherspoon pubs on our travels, and normally have no problems. The service is usually good, ambience of the restaurant areas congenial to what we prefer, social chat and good food. However, the Sunday lunches we recently had were very poor, potatoes uncooked and stuffing balls as hard and dry as 'golf ball's'! If this had been our... More

Nice restaurant – pub atmosphere. Order at the bar from a varied menu. Tasty dishes, good service. Convenient setting on the high Street, popular with locals. The only downer was that the only red wine they served was merlot. Moderate prices.

Used to eat here a lot as it was great value for money, especially on steak night or curry night. However, last few times I have been it's been a horrible experience. On walking in it's hard to find a clean table - staff take forever to clear tables after customers have left so you're presented with lots of tables... More

Pleasant atmosphere, comforting wooden furniture, private booths with padded seats, a few bookcases, altogether a nice feel to the place. Surprisingly spacious with ample seating and obviously popular as most tables were occupied. The bar is centre stage with a good range of cask beer and manned by very polite young staff. There is no table service so food has... More

Two of three because it was the second of three Wetherspoons visited this week. Food good and served quickly. We were also asked by pleasant waitress if everything alright. The bar staff did seem to have trouble handling orders. The whole experience partly spoiled by a fat gent shouting into a mobile phone.

Tuesday night at Wetherspoon's is steak night. Guess what? Went last Tuesday evening at 7.45pm and they were out of their main attraction, the Aberdeen Angus. Despondent yes but, being a real ale lover, you can always choose from one of the eight on display can't you? Oh dear, not this night. Only two left, one of which was ghastly,... More

The County isn't your run of the mill Wetherspoons pub, I generally find that they are quite dire places full of drop outs and wasters, but this pub is great, a real mix of people the food is great value, I would recommend the gammon its chargrilled and the great BBQ smoky flavour really comes through and it comes with...
