We unfortunately did not have the chance of the full experience of the Vegan Afternoon Tea at the Hotel restaurant but we had as a take away and the food was delicious and very well presented. Looking forward to 2021 and returning to enjoy the full experience. Thank you
Very happy with our afternoon tea! Plenty of food and a lovely selection of everything.
I had a lovely time very good service and would definitely recommend to which I have already
I have scored one on atmosphere purely because of COVID restrictions.
I am a fairly regular overnight guest at the Hotel and always find the Restaurant very good. This time I was particularly well looked after by Emily and Alex, and the food was, if anything, even better than usual. All in all an excellent stay and an excellent meal. I shall be back again before too long!
Staff are always helpful polite and friendly always aim to please when you order. We meet quite regularly for a quiet retreat from the outside world. Always rested afterwards
Great food & very friendly service. I felt very safe with all the measures the County Hotel had taken in respect of Coronavirus. Thank you
Cakes was good but some of the sandwiches was wet as the cress was wet that was in them. The tea was very weak and could not taste the tea. There was no atmosphere as we was the only people in the restaurant. The staff was removing all clean cutlery, plates ,glasses and tablecloth on the tables around up like they was closing. Had to ask at Receiption for a staff member as we was left on our own to pay bill and also take some cakes home. I took my mum for her 81st birthday which the restaurant know but nobody wishes her happy birthday.
Such an imaginative menu which 100% suited a committed carnivore and a fussy vegetarian. Lovely to have a choice of leaf teas. Way too much food, but we are still enjoying it at home. Staff very friendly and helpful. Thank you.
We loved our afternoon tea, especially the option of a children’s one.
Staff were very cheerfull and helpful.
The food and service was great. Emily deserves a special mention she was fabulous and sorted out some issues we had she remained very professional and has such a friendly persona an asset to the business.
Generous food portions, nicely cooked
Lovely, professional and friendly staff. Couldn't do enough for you. The food is fabulous! Highly recommended. Thank you. Sarah and Johnny.
Really lovely staff food was amazing made my little girl fill special at her first afternoon tea would book again if there any offer come up really enjoyed it
Really well presented and changed around some of the sandwich’s with no hassle at all
Great Hotel - will definitely be staying there again!
We had excellent service from our waitress Alex. I've only marked the atmosphere down as we were the only ones in for afternoon tea at that time. No one else in the restaurant.
Excellent couple of nights at The County Hotel! Really enjoyed it and will be staying again!
we enjoyed an incredible afternoon tea here. Great options for vegetarians also which was very impressed with. Food and service was outstanding, could not fault. Great value for money. Would defiantly recommend here.
We enjoyed our time spent with you to celebrate a 60th birthday dispite the fact we couldn't all sit together we still had a very enjoyable time thank you. Christina
We had a lovely afternoon tea. The staff looked after us and couldn’t do more for us! Thank you for looking after us the food was amazing!
