Fantastic Sunday Lunch

Fantastic Sunday lunch. Lovely menu choices. Whole family chose Sunday carvery. Fabulous choice, meats all superbly cooked, vegetables fresh with a rich homemade gravy. Superb service by attentive, effect staff. We will be returning.

The County is now a stylish, relaxing and most excellent place to eat.

We went to the county today at 4.30pm to celebrate my fathers birthday. The new look County is beautiful. Tasteful colours and most eye catching fabrics used for a truly unique and classy look. We all had the carvery including my 8 yr old daughter. The staff are considerate, did not rush us and were so very nice. The food was amazing, we had such a lovely choice with something for everyone. My daughter was so impressed and ate everything, including the vegetables all up!!! The puddings are melt in the mouth and i could have eaten the ice cream forever. Again the staff never rushed us, let us linger after the meal to recover lol. I cant wait to go again have booked for boxing day and to take my volunteers for afternoon tea in december. Thanks county for a lovely evening, you have done an amazing job and your staff should be commended.

Friendly and Welcoming

All the staff were very helpful and efficient. Even though we arrived 10 minutes before the end of evening service, we were able to order a meal (delicious, by the way) which was very welcome after a long journey.

Super Location, Lovely Stay

Our stay was perfect. Couldn’t picked better. Very nice people, food is simple but really tasty and after a long walks it’s just what you need. Plus we were allowed to have two dogs! Which was even more amazing. Rooms were tidy and spacious. Definitely stay again.

Fantastic Food and Waitress

Couldn’t fault the food, burgers for us both! Waitress could not have been more helpful 🙂 value for money too! Winner winner.
