Cannot begin to rate the food at The Fairfax Arms - excellent and delicious do not come close. The Belly Pork is outstanding and the Venison is too die for. The desserts and starters will also satisfy the most fussy diner. The menu is reasonable priced offering a wide choice of starters,mains and dessert. There is an impressive wine list... More

We have stayed in the Fairfax a number of times now and it is still as good as ever. The rooms are lovely with comfortable beds and all the extras you could wish for. Where they really excel is with the food. The breakfasts are cooked to order and the evening meals are of a high standard. The staff have... More

Once again another great stay at the Fairfax, this time we stayed in the main building, the room was really comfortable. Our breakfast was lovely and set you up for the day. We had a meal which was very good and good value. Service is always good.

This is our chosen local - a lovely country pub in beautiful countryside where the staff are very welcoming, the service is great and the food is excellent. We drink and eat here on a regular basis and can honestly say we have never had a bad meal yet. The food always high quality and is locally sourced and cooked... More

My wife and I took a group of 14 people to the Fairfax as part of an annual walking weekend. The staff were fantastic. Every member of the team was prepared to help in whatever way they could to make our stay a successful and enjoyable one. The pub area was very busy on Sat evening but our meals arrived... More

Further to this disappointment, The Fairfax Arms has sourced alternative accommodation for us which was most helpful and we are very grateful to them. This demonstrates a high level of customer service and we admit that our previous rating was too harsh. Consequently we would like to revise our rating of the Fairfax to Very Good.

We have just returned from celebrating our anniversary at the Fairfax. Two nights nice accommodation, good food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. probably even better in summer when weather better for walking.

Stayed at the Fairfax Arms for 2 nights late Feb, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The beer, and food were excellent, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We would definitely go back here, in a heart-beat. Also a great base for exploring this part of Yorkshire.

We stayed at the end of Jan after having had previous excellent breaks here. Unfortunately on our second and last morning the breakfast was very slow in being served. The manager was not around and there was no organisation to the staff who appeared to lack experience and prompt attention to detail. We had to ask for courses and the... More
