We were staying in the area and after a walk had stumbled across The County. We had a late afternoon drink and left after looking at the menus.
The next day we decided to return for our evening meal.
We were greeted with a cheery comment and a smile by a member of staff who remembered us from the previous day.
The food and service were excellent, not speedy but relaxed and unfussy.
Salmon on samphire was perfect and my friend ate the steak and ale pie and he said it was the best pie he had ever eaten.
I had been hankering after a good ice cream all week and when I saw that liquorice ice cream was on the menu I ordered it along with chocolate chip and a blackcurrant sorbet. All three were delicious.
We ordered the cheese board and we were not disappointed . We love our cheeses and these were served beautifully. The cheese was at the correct temperature and with lovely accompaniments.
We would definitely return and would like to stay in the rooms that are available next time.
The bill came to £57 for 2 main courses, a dessert, a cheese board and a bottle of wine. A fairly expensive meal but we were happy as it reflected the quality of food we had eaten and the service we had received.
I would like to congratulate the young staff who took our order and served us. They were polite, friendly and allowed us to enjoy our meal.
