Winter warmer

Had a meal in The Counties on 08/01/16 as part of a "Winter Warmer" weekend package. Service was quick and all staff very pleasant and polite. Food was excellent, hot and plentiful. Would not hesitate to eat in here again.

Called in here on a Saturday evening of the bat, hoping that they weren't fully booked up. They quickly sorted us out with a table. They have got a very good menu and I think it would suit every dietary requirement. The food and service was what I expected.

Very good buffet breakfast with a wide selection of food. Nice view on the seashore. We saw Dolphins while having breakfast. Relaxing in the evening for a beer and a live football match.
