Travellers' Choice
The County Hotel is a gem of a Pub with Rooms, just away from the historic centre of Hexham – recently voted Britain's favourite market town! We are the perfect place for a post-work cocktail, a business brunch or a private party with friends. With food served all day, fresh barista coffee and free WIFI, we’re a popular venue whatever the occasion. Once you’ve tried our delicious local food, ales and gins & experienced our relaxed, yet friendly, hospitality, you won’t want to leave. Thanks to our 7 En-Suite rooms, you won’t have to. Hexham is an ideal place to explore the local area, with features such as Hadrian's Wall and Sycamore Gap popular throughout the year. The town itself is award winning, with lively markets and the magnificent abbey to wander round. The County Hotel is all about easy-going contentment – a tasteful, relaxed venue that hasn’t forgotten it is a pub at heart. Business meetings, local lunches and evening celebrations are all part of the mix that make The County Hotel something special.

I stayed one night for business when the hotel was closed to all but essential travel due to COVID-19. It was clearly operating very differently with no restaurant service or reception but I enjoyed my stay so much I will come back for a leisure stay. The room was gorgeous and cozy with a huge king size bed, nice dining table, and a HUGE soaking bath. Because there were no dining options, the hotel thoughtfully supplied the room with everything you need for a take away - proper plates, cutlery, napkins and even an entire spread of condiments and salt/pepper. There was also a residents lounge if you wanted to watch the world go by out of the window. Parking is located just a few minutes down the hill in the main town car park. Fiona who checked me in was lovely and helpful. I cannot comment on the food but the restaurant looked like a nice, warm, and inviting spot. Breakfast menu was very good! Next time! If I had one slight criticism it would be that the mattress had seen better days, but I still got a very good night's sleep. Look forward to my return.

We have been supporting local businesses by having frequent takeaways but until now we had never cracked Sunday lunch. We have now. To me, a meat dinner stands or falls on the quality of the meat and on the gravy. Both were outstanding. Choose beef, turkey, lamb or all three...little meals for little appetites are available... and 20% discount if you pick up rather than have it delivered. Starters and pudding available too...that’s Sundays sorted for quite some time!

Within Covid rules, we were allowed to stay overnight due to us attending a local funeral early the next morning. Fiona who owns the hotel made us most welcome and went out of her way to provide us with a takeaway hotel meal of delicious roast beef and trimmings which we ate in a safe private lounge area. It is obviously a very well run hotel, very spacious bedroom and compfy bed and well situated. We will definitely return and enjoy a longer stay once this Covid pandemic is cleared.
