We came here on a Saturday evening for the music & for a drink & snacks. The staff were very friendly & they have a huge selection of local brews. The music was FANTASTIC! Everyone was singing along, some people were dancing. A fantastic, fun...show. The group had a fiddler, a guitar player & a great singer who had terrific rapport with the audience.More

We love the County Canteen whenever we make it to the County. Food, drinks and vibes are always 10/10. We visited on the day they released their new summer menu and all the food was amazing as always, the donair egg rolls should be put...permanently on the menu! Staff and management were present throughout the night making sure the new food was a hit--and it was!More

If you haven’t tried their smoked brisket burger, you haven’t lived! My first time and the memory still lingers! Cozy atmosphere, great food and beverages plus really good live music— a perfect evening. Get there early because it’s a small place!

Taco Tuesday at the County Canteen is our favourite. During the month of April, and the County Delicious festivities, that special is gone so we ordered from the County Delicious menu. The Arugula salad with a citrus tarragon dressing was outstanding, and plentiful. The smoke...meat special was good and Jeremy was his usual friendly self. Having said all that, we look forward to our fabulous Taco Tuesday returning in May.More

The service was excellent but the food not so much. They love serving their nachos and tacos with pickled onions. Who uses feta cheese on a fish taco? Their nachos were not something I would order again and the fish taco definitely was weirder. County...canteen needs to up their food level.More

the county canteen is my family’s favorite restaurant in Picton. The establishment itself is very uniquely decorated and evokes an old time county pub. The food is delicious and comes in good sized portions. Our personal favorite is the fish tacos. The prices are very...reasonable for the quality of food served. There are vegan and vegetarian options. The staff are friendly and service is excellent. No other place on main street compares!More

Basic food. Ribs and fries were overcooked, coleslaw was dead on the plate. Expected more for the price. Service was pleasant.

Service was prompt and the waitress was courteous. It wasn't busy around 1:00 p.m. on a Wednesday in Sep, My friend had a huge caesar salad and I had the beer battered fish and chips. My friend and I wanted to chat and the waitress...didn't bother us. Which was wonderful. There was plenty to eat and neither of us could finish it all. Bathroom was very clean. We went there because a friend recommended it.More

Our dinner here was just fabulous! We brought our 14 month old son with us and were left sitting for awhile as there was some mixup it seemed as to who was serving our table. However, when our waiter realized the mistake, he completely made...up for it with his service the rest of the evening. Our dishes came out quickly, with our sons Mac n Cheese coming out in record time straight after we ordered, so that he could get started eating. It's always a huge help when we can get him fed first. It makes the whole meal go smoother. The beer and cider we had was great and the meal was even better. Our waiter really talked up the Bao Buns and so my husband tried them. He found then to be seriously good. I had the Fish Tacos, which I really really enjoyed. The salsa totally made them. Yummmmm, so good! We even got dessert, which we never do! We split the cheesecake and it was heaven! Such a great meal and we had leftover Mac n Cheese for our sons next meal as well. It was perfect.More

On our last evening in Picton we were wondering where we might go for supper. We had enjoyed a few other places during the week but decided to try The County Canteen and loved it. Great little spot with good service, a comfortable patio and...a really good burger.More
