Attentive chef who constantly replenished the food. The vegetables actually tasted of vegetables! The beef was great. The cutlery was good quality...important when tackling meat. Nice atmosphere, nice decor, comfy modern chairs...now home for a snooze! Bar area looks great! Will definitely have to try that one Friday afternoon and dunk my bottle of wine in their ice bucket!

Been to the newly refurbished County for midweek lunch with friends a couple of times now. Its a great new environment and a positive improvement for Carnforth. The Christmas lunch was a 4 - 4.5 / 5, but lunch a couple of weeks ago was no more than an OK 3. Main problem was it appeared to be seriously understaffed.... More

Parking is in the restaurant's own car park, and wheelchair access is via double doors and a flat interior. It looks like it has recently been refurbished as the decoration and furniture looked new and stylish. The food is plentiful, and of an exceptionally high quality. Service is with a smile. Not the cheapest place we have eaten in, but... More

To start must admit the County was not our first choice for this lunch but as we had been let down by our first choice and it was a very wet day at 2 30 in the afternoon we were running out of ideas to where to eat without going too much out of our way home. Luckily the County... More

Lovely refurbishment. Pulled pork BBQ sauce sandwich was outstanding. Battered fish top notch too. Veg soup a bit parsnip rich for me. Will be back!

The county has recently been taken over by a multi company and refurbished. Have brought the new year in here on a number of occasions but stopped coming a few years ago due to the building and service being run Down. Since the take over we decided to give it another chance.

Having visited regularly for their carvery lunch , I was most impressed by the make over to a Bistro type diner. The menu choice was good , with the option of small sized portions and an early dining half price option.Everything appeared to be cooked to order and tasted it.

Stopped off here on way home from Scotland on Monday 2nd January. I was travelling with my 76 year old Mother. We sat in the Bar to watch the Football and asked the waitress to see the menu. She was polite and brought us the menu and said just order at the bar in Restaurant. This was around 4.45pm and... More

We chose a sharing platter which was out of this world. Newly renovated, and great location. They had some wonderful dishes on the menu, and the chef's signature sauce should go on dragons den!
