    Afternoon tea was booked. Staff were friendly and helpful - scones were great. However I thought we would be eating in the restaurant but we were shown to a table in the bar. Not the best surroundings for afternoon tea which spoilt it a little. No idea why we were not given a table in the restaurant - no explanation given.

    Very enjoyable meal .. booked online
    Arrived at 8.05pm they had a big function on and attended to be closed that evening so very impressed they opened for us as it was my birthday. The service was attentive the food was outstanding and cooked to perfection they sang happy birthday Which was very nice
    ONLY disappointment was wine list as our first 4 choices were not available so we had to buy a wine which was very good but £10 more then we would have paid .

    Slow service. Not great food.

  • ((((* 13 August 2017 by Nicholas Taylor from Harlow

    Food was good, for the price. Room rather noisy despite not many customers in the room, would not like to be there when it is full. Floor needs carpeting and pictures etc on the walls. Afternoon tea should be a quieter affair. We spend many a weekend afternoon trying out different locations, this is not one of our best, but good value for money.

    Wonderful food freshly cooked by a chef who obviously cares and is creative. Presentation was also lovely.
    Thank you County Hotel. A world away from generic chain ping food!

    Afternoon tea was lovely. Delicious sandwiches and lovely scones with cream and jam. It was my friend's birthday and staff brought her a cake with a candle which was super cool and we all sang happy bitthday to her. Had a pleasant experience. It was very quiet yhought, I would prefer more movement and more life... But we all enjoyed it.

    Afternoon tea. Sandwiches were a bit disappointing . Eggmayo had to much onion the ham had few to many grains in .
    But the cakes were lovely

  • ((((* 17 January 2017 by Martin from London

    Food was very tasty so we fully recommend that aspect. The downside was that the room lacks atmosphere whereas not too much work could make huge improvements to make a more welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.
    Also by 9.15 staff clearing the laid up tables that weren't used made us feel a little like we should be eating up!!
    But the food was great!
