Large Greene King pub that has been a listed building since 1987.

Legend has it that The County dates back to 1826 when it was originally a dwelling house.

At that time it belonged to the notorious Bulman family who lived in the area (part of Gosforth being known as Bulman Village).

In 1866 the property was converted to a pub and was named The County Hotel.

The pub is a real ale enthuiasts dream with a large selection of real ales, craft beers and guest ales on offer.

There is several widescreen TV's throughout the bar with live football shown including Newcastle matches.

It has a steady crowd of regulars and is also frequented by business crowd and students so is busy most times of the day.

The pub has a large rectangular bar that can be accessed from two main entrances on either side.

There is a small room to the back which can be used for functions of between 15 - 20 persons - ask at bar for further details.

There is plenty of seating throughout for diners/drinkers. The decor is of a traditional pub style with old pictures of byegone days on the walls.

Car Parking is available with a small car park to one side and there is a large outside seating area.

The snug room is available to reserve for Newcastle and other football matches. WiFi throughout pub. Children friendly.

Disabled access to the main bar is very good with a designated disabled toilet. Toilets are small and clean.

Price: Reasonable.
