We stopped at The Fairfax last Sunday for lunch. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was extremely pleasant. The staff were very professional and polite and made us feel very welcome. Although the pub was busy, we were not rushed into leaving our table after eating. All in all we had a fantastic visit. We will be going back... More

We ordered lunch and it was stunning. We would recommend the fairfax to anyone. We will definitely be going back. We received a warm welcome by... More

Had a lovely stay at the Fairfax Arms. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the bed was massive. Also great to have a decent bath. We also had a lovely dinner and breakfast which we thought was excellent value for money. The perfect night away.

Been meaning to try this little gem out for some time now. Wasnt dissapointed! Fantastic service, from the greeting to being quickly seated and then efficient but unobtrusive service with our lunch order. We opted for a light lunch but it was hearty and just right, really. Nice presentation, clean, well maintained surroundings, clean tables. The bar manager was very... More

We visited the Fairfax for dinner a few weeks ago as we were staying locally. Its a lovely pub/restaurant with a great bar and then separate eating area. The food and wine are extremely reasonable and cooked and served to a very high standard. We happened to be back in the area the following Sunday, and having enjoyed the trip... More

Quite by chance we booked Sunday lunch with a group of friends as we had intended to eat in nearby Ampleforth. It was our first visit and we weren't disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful and service was relaxed but efficient. The food was great, and helpings were generous. The ambience was good, and its a lovely place to eat... More

Our fourth visit, this time as a birthday treat and as always were met with a warm welcome. The room as usual exceeded expectations (room 11) and the evening meal was very enjoyable, from starter through to dessert. Booking a table is advisable especially on a Saturday evening as the restaurant was full when we visited. We will no doubt... More

We stopped at the pub while passing through the village, it was fully booked for the evening but there was space in the bar to eat. The prices are reasonable for the meals and are all quite large. Very nice meal and will return, the rooms seem very quanit but didn't stay over.
