The County was my final port of call in Gosforth. It was reasonably busy inside and has a traditional feel to it. It is a John Barras pub with more ales than I've previously seen in their establishments. They had a County Gosforth Best Bitter, Anarchy Urban Assault, Ossett Clearwater, Three Kings Billy Mill, Great North Eastern Rivet Catcher, Wylam Angel & Gold Tankard, Wells Bombardier, Greene King IPA & Caledonian Deuchars IPA. Thatchers Cheddar Valley cider was also stocked. Nice pub. But my only gripe would be the price. £2.05 for a half of cider is more expensive than in London. But I suppose Cheddar Valley is rarely seen in these parts. No CAMRA discount on cider either (but there was on ales).

visited a couple of times last week when in Newcastle. a great range of real ales and a good drinkers pub. friendly staff.
a couple of minor criticisms - there's a strong smell of stale beer on entering, also, the gents loos smell dreadful and need a good clean. both problems could be solved by cleaning and ventilation.
overall though, a good pub.

A great little local pub. Yeah, it's changed a little in the last decade and the decor isn't quite as homely as it was but it's still a fab place. Always packed which what feels like proper 'locals' and the staff are fantastic. Still good for real ales if that's you're after.

I rarely get through to Gosforth now but have many happy memories of the County and Brandling Arms. Especially, though, the County.

Located on the High Street and served excellently by public transport, this public house is an ideal local and a very pleasant one.

Not being a drinker, as such, through medical reasons more than any other, I have found all of my recent visits to the County to be very pleasant and the staff are all excellent and sociable. Especially, Emma who always gives a very welcoming smile and is very efficient. (Oh, she's a dab hand in the kitchen, too)

The food is excellent, as is the selection and the meals that I have had there have been cooked to perfection and have had an abundance of flavour.

I have never sensed, as one does in many locals these days if not a regular punter, a feeling of being an outsider. The atmosphere has always been a warm one.

Overall, ten out of ten.
