user reviews of County Hotel, Ashford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A sad indictment on Ashford is that this Wetherspoon is pretty much your only offering for a (not so great) ale in the town. Not a bad building but the interior is indistinguishable from any other Wetherspoons. There used to be so many more pubs in the town but now they are pretty thin on the ground and of the few that are left (like the George or Tap Room) this is the only one listed on here.

Large pub, beer garden at rear, very busy on our visit. Had an 'Affinity' craft beer [quite tasty].

Large roomy Wetherspoon with a pleasant back room. Limited range of guest ales considering the size. pleasant enough.

I have had issues with this place in the past (including a complete absence of real ales on one occasion and just one on during a previous festival), but I have to say that it was fine today. It had a good slection of beers on from the current International Beer Festival (including the Finnish and Australian porters), and a relaxed Sunday afternoon atmosphere. All-in-all, not too bad for a town centre pub with a bit of a dodgy reputation.

In yesterday, beer as usual for 'Spoons, very nice. Food - Burger - was garbage. Among the worst I've ever had in a pub - & that's saying something!

Bog standard 'Spoons, more civilised clientele than many. Included in the 2009 Good Beer Guide, but only one guest ale (a Goff's seasonal) was on offer in addition to the usual mainsteam 'Spoons range, albeit well kept.

It's one of the better 'Spoons but in all honesty that's not saying much as there's some grim ones out there.
I've eaten here several times and the food's OK. Nothing great, but it's a 'spoons. To be fair to the place, you get what you pay for. The beer selection's usually good, but it does compete with the Phoenix to be the town's youth club at times.

Ignore the other review, everytime I have been in weatherspoons the tables are never cleared, there are kids everywhere, beer prices have crept up to normal bar pricing. Also the food is generally terrible and they never have what you require. Beer is generally ok and I dont recall having a dodgy pint.

My score would have been higher but is dragged down by the poor food and cleanliness in the pub.

Visited last Thursday prior to an evening's 10 pin bowling. Friendly, efficient staff, and even the manager was working behinfd the bar.

It was an early evening visit, so there were a fair few in for an after work drink and the Thursday Curry Club. No dirty tables either!

On the beer front, the "usual suspects" were present - Abbot, Spitfire, Chum and suchlike. In addition there was Hopdaemon "Incubus", and an excellent pale 5% I.P.A from the York Brewery.

No Swan-neck dispense either!

Definitely one of the better Spoons.
