    This was our first visit to Counting House we had flies constantly annoying us at the table, we ordered garlic bread as an entree and it took a long time to come, we had to ask the waitress to chase it up. Main course was steak with peppercorn sauce and the sauce was exceptionally salty which I reported to the waiter and the chef advised that it was ok. It wasn’t OK at all.

    Dear Ken, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry that your garlic bread took a while and that the chef was a bit heavy handed with the seasoning. With the current humid weather, we have had issues with flies which we are trying to address. Hopefully, this experience will not deter you from visiting us again. Kind regards, The Team from Counting House

    Lovely atmosphere. Fun and attentive staff. Would have liked a few more options on menu ( I’m a bit fussy) We wanted a dip share plate and they created one for us despite it not being on menu. Thank you! ( maybe add a dip etc small entree share platter) Would def go again.

    Noise was a bit of an issue. Busy because it’s a good eatery and pleasant atmosphere. Other wise couldn’t fault the evening. We will be back again soon.

    Lunch with close friends was a pleasure at Counting House. The fish of the day was delicious and perfectly seasoned. Pudding was super yummy- could have easily shared between 2 as the serve was very generous.

    This is our second visit. Initially the menu might seem lacking in choice but there is scope for either tapas style servings or standard mains. However, the Specials Board adequately makes up for what might appear to be less choice. On the drinks front there is plenty of styles and varieties to chose from. Finally, service is friendly and ‘spot on’. Will definitely revisit!

    Great night out, happy hour is a nice start, bar area very good, beautiful fire, nice vibe. Dinner was awesome, dining room very nice, it was a busy night. Our young waiter did not get flustered with the dietary requirements, and the changes we asked for were managed well. Wine choices were a bit limited, but adequate. Generous serves and great service. We will go again!
