It's difficult to know where to start with this review because we arrived at the Fairfax Arms having driven through beautiful Yorkshire countryside, towns and villages, bedecked with bunting and yellow bicycles to honour Le Grand Depart and were feeling quite euphoric at the outpouring of Yorkshire pride. We didn't know what to expect when we booked our stay but... More

Stayed here for one night with family and friends. What a beautiful place. We were given a warm genuine welcome and shown to our courtyard rooms which consisted of a huge bed and a twin room off to the side with lovely en suite. Everything you could want in the room including use of a DVD library and Playstation if... More

Wonderful setting, well appointed, recommend this place as a real "find". Downsides are not easy to locate in rural lanes, but worth the effort. No mobile phone coverage, but Wifi worked. Exceptionally comfortable bed.

The Fairfax Arms is in the middle of a lovely little village set in some stunning countryside. The pub side offers a wide selection of drinks and caters for regulars and visitors who co-exist quite comfortably. The menu was wide enough for most tastes and the food they served was excellent and very reasonably priced. So much so, we went... More

Another great stay! Maintained the high standards we found in our previous visits. The area also is worth visiting with some great walks and places to visit. Would recommend a walk to Ampleforth abbey.

On a lovely bank holiday Monday we called in here for a spot of lunch. As the weather was nice we opted to sit outside in a lovely beer garden with a stream - there will not be many pubs which can boast such a lovely setting. I choice the steak and ale pie, served with home cooked chips and... More
