Welcome to County Dining.

A small space offering fine food and wine in a relaxed environment.

Please note: County Dining will be closing as of Sunday 2 August 2015. We will keep you updated through this site and our newsletter (which you can sign up for on the ‘contact us’ page, as to when and where we reopen.

County is located upstairs in the historic Arnotts Bakehouse building, on the main road of Morpeth.
Wander through the smell of freshly baked Morpeth Sourdough to find us happily cooking, gardening,
mixing cocktails and bopping along to classic tunes.

Our menus are designed for you to choose your own experience: pop in for a quick drink and a snack,
a fast business lunch, or a long and indulgent meal over a bottle of wine (or two!).

Expect changing menus highlighting regional and seasonal produce matched with an ever-changing wine list.

So whether you’re a long time local, or just visiting the gorgeous town of Morpeth, it will always
pay to pop in and dine with us.

We’re open Thursdays from 6pm to late
Fridays from 12pm to late
Saturdays from 12pm to late
Sundays from 11am to 4pm

    the county table
    hold your group event in relaxed style and sophistication (for all groups of 8 people or more)

    Getting a group of people together for a meal can be difficult at the best of times. Here at County, we are determined to make this as simple as possible.

    All you need to do is choose how many ‘courses’ per person, let us know of any dietary requirements, and Jamie will send you the best complimenting
    dishes of the day to share.

    Not big on sharing? We can design an alternate serve or a degustation
    style menu for you!

    $50pp (2 courses served with Morpeth Sourdough and sides)
    $70pp (3 courses served with Morpeth Sourdough and sides)
    $85pp (4 courses served with Morpeth Sourdough and sides)

    Keen to try some of our grazing menu to get you started? Add an extra $10pp and we will send some your way.

    For those interested in a standing event at County, our canapé packages
    are for you.

    $25pp (1/2 hr canapés, 4 choices, 2 hours of exclusive use space)
    $35pp (1hr canapés, 6 choices, 3 hours of exclusive use space)
    $45pp (2hr canapés, 8 choices, 4 hours of exclusive use space)

    And finally, for a big soiree (30 guests or more), why not book out County Dining and have the space to yourself! Combine canapés with a sit down option
    to really impress.

    Due to our cosy atmosphere we can accommodate a maximum of 50 guests seated or 70 guests standing. The room capacities are as follows:

    Verandah, maximum of 30 guests seated or 45 standing

    River Room, maximum of 24 guests seated or 30 standing

    Bar, maximum of 12 guests, lounge seating only

    BUT the bottom line is that if you can’t see an option here to suit you, please contact us and we will try to help create the event you’re after.
