A very warm welcome from all the staff and a very comfortable stay. For a pub with rooms it exceeded expectations with very comfortable beds and beautiful bed linen and toiletries. Lunch, evening meal and breakfast all very enjoyable and beautifully cooked. Cosy Country Inn interiors with outdoor seating in a lovely spot beside the stream. We look forward to... More

We stopped at The Fairfax Arms as we'd driven past it before and thought it looked very quaint. The food was very good, and we didn't have to wait long. The true appeal of it for us was the setting. The area is stunningly beautiful, surrounded by countryside. We sat outside on the lawn, overlooking the stream. This meant we... More

Myself and my boyfriend spent 1 night at the Fairfax Arms a couple of months ago. The room was amazing. Really well decorated and furnished to perfection. Sofa, TV, sound system, wifi, huge very comfortable bed, massive bathroom with a large Jacuzzi bath, separate shower cubicle and double sinks. Best place l I’ve stayed in! Definitely worth the price tag.... More

Evening dinner at the Fairfax Arms did not deliver. Tomato soup was bright orange & so scorchingly hot it could only have come out of a microwave. Husband needed to ask for steak knife for lamb chops (one good, one poor). Cod with risotto could have had a lot more flavour. An warm welcome and attentive service would have been... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Tripadvisor. I would like to give you some feedback on your comments. Firstly regarding your soup, we certainly do not microwave any food that comes out of our kitchen, it is all done on our hotplate. This must be the first time I have had a complaint of the... More

Stopped off for one night on the way home from a trip to the Dales. Staff friendly and accommodating from the start...Our room (12) was above the kitchen but didn't present too much of a problem. The room itself was well equipped and the walk in shower was great. The food on the night was top notch. These people are... More

Had pre dinner drinks in a busy bar which is nice to see. The food was amazing, freshly cooked. Asparagus, poached egg and parma ham for me and my... More
