Visited for the birthday celebration for my elderly mother. The service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive; very helpful and friendly. The menu was perfect for a family celebration - the sort of menu where people from a range of ages will find something they like. Largely traditional British is style with a definite home cooked feel. I had... More

I have stayed and eaten at The County on several occasions recently when in the area on business and the accommodation and service I have received has always been superb. Colette and her team are so friendly and welcoming, the rooms are spotless and decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Every meal I have had has been excellent,... More

We came to the County for Sunday lunch while visiting Durham. Well worth the drive from Durham - top quality food, friendly attentive service, good value. The Sunday lunch choice was wide and our family of 4 had four different main courses, (roast beef, roast pork, lamb rump, gougons of plaice) all fresh and well presented. The veg accompaniment consisted... More

The property is well positioned, very clean and decor really nice. Friendly professional staff. However, Sunday lunch was terrible on every level! Frozen cubed turnip, questionable mash, tasteless beef etc. We would not recommend and won't be returning.

We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly with my wife brought her own menu. Service was attentive and appropriate and the food was of... More

What a lovely place. We booked in for an overnight stay on the way up to Scotland. Managed to make it in time for dinner - thank goodness it was delicious, beautifully cooked and presented. So nice and the staff were really friendly. The room absolutely spotless, modern (even a walk in dressing room) and very spacious. Would definitely recommend... More

We visited The County on Saturday evening and whilst the restaurant was busy we still had friendly and efficient service. Our meals were delicious and good value for money. For readers of a certain age.......if you combine a scoop of Turkish Delight ice cream with one of Chocolate it's reminiscent of eating a Fry's Turkish Delight bar! (Yummy!). The dessert... More

Calling in for Sunday lunch. Bottle of water put on the table without asking. Most places you have to request it. Choice on the menu was not extensive but more than enough. I always think that when you don't have too many choices at least you know you have more chances of it been freshly cooked, and not took from... More

Took my son and friend for a meal tonight. The food was amazing as always and I had the best dessert I have eaten anywhere. Lemon Curd Millefiori, just amazing layers of flavours an textures. The service was excellent , atmosphere just perfect, they never fail to impress. We love this gem of a dining experience.

If your a fussy eater then I would look else where. In my opinion a very limited menu. I ordered the battered cod and chips, which was £14.00 and the chips came in a small metal basket (10 chips at best). That is expensive. This is not a place I would visit again.
