We broke our journey on our way further north at The County, and a very pleasant stay it was too. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the staff were first-class: very friendly and helpful. As it was a busy period on the run-up to Christmas we had taken the precaution of reserving a table in the restaurant -...

This was only our second visit as we don't live locally. We were in the Durham area for a few days to celebrate my husbands birthday. I booked a table at The County and hoped the food would be just as good since our last visit. We were not disappointed, the service and food was excellent. My husband had the...

We have visited The County on a number of occasions and the food quality and service is always of the highest standard. There is always a friendly greeting on arrival and no matter how busy they seem you are always seated promptly or sat in the waiting and served with a drink. There is an excellent and varied menu which...

We came for Sunday lunch. Only one veggie option or Yorkshire puddings with roast potatoes and veg. Yorkshires were huge and veg was very nice. Excellent selection of veg. Ice creams and desserts were lovely. Waitresses were very polite and friendly. Lovely meal will definitely go back again, although we'll check what the veggie option is first.

The four of us stayed in this hotel to be near the site of Kynren in Bishop Auckland. It was in a beautiful village and was extremely comfortable, clean and attractive. The staff were all extremely helpful. We only had breakfast but would have liked to have had dinner if we'd had time. It looked a great menu.

We stayed at The County on Saturday night. We had dropped our daughter off at Nottingham Trent Uni and were heading from there to Northumberland to visit friends. We booked The County as we knew we would be tired and would need a good meal and rest. We were met with a very friendly welcome and shown to our room...

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...
