“Poor service mediocre food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

We have used the County Hotel for the restaurant for a number of years as we live fairly local.We stopped using it when new owners took over and changed the menu to being more "upmarket".The menu i suppose was to attract a different customer?If that was the case it failed.It did not appeal to my wife and myself.I have passed the restaurant on numerous occassions and it is empty.Maybe others decided the new menu was not to there taste either.My wife and i decided to give it another try tonight, well 5.30ish.We waited for someone to show us to our seats but no one appeared.I then had to ring the bell for the hotel reception to get someone for the restaurant.We took a table and asked what was the soup of the day and we were told Lentil.We decided to to have the soup and i ordered steak and ale pie my wife chorizo chicken.After about 15 mins the soup appeared.This had to be the strangest lentil soup i have ever seen -it was vegetable.No apology from the waitress.The steak and ale pie had no gravy and was very dry.The Chorizo also dry.Now we were the only customers in the restaurant and it seems the wait for service and then for food took forever.We mentioned the problems we had experienced and were told that the chef would be informed.Is it any wonder the County Hotel Restaurant is empty?
