We ate at The Fairfax Arms, called off on a busy Tuesday night desperately in need of accommodation, fortunately for us, they'd had a cancellation so could accommodate us, they went out of their way to feed us, great food and service, we'll be back ! Great room too, apparently they've had new beds, got to say that they're the... More

Have stayed at this hotel a couple of times now and hope to be returning in the New Year again. Its very warm, welcoming and the food is top class. Great breakfast and lovely rooms with lots of little extras - to make the experience extra special.

I have stayed at The Fairfax Arms many times & have always enjoyed the welcome, delicious food & comfy accommodation. I am recommending again following my experience on evening Friday 12 December when new landlord John and his staff handled a difficult situation with calm professionalism and kindness. To cut a long story short, during dinner my mother collapsed. John... More

I have visited the Fairfax Arms three times now, twice on business where I stayed on my own, and once with my family. Each time I/we were given a great welcome, service was warm and friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was delicious. Dinners and breakfast had everything you could want. Every effort is made to... More

My wife and I have stayed at The Fairfax before and liked iot so much we stayed again. Rooms are comfortable, scrupulously clean and include a number of nice touches i.e. toiletries, tea and coffee facility, fruit and home baked shortbread. Eating at the Fairfax is a lovely experience either as a couple or as a party of thirteen including... More

We ate as a party of six. All the staff were very attentive, but unobtrusive, which is good. The food was excellent from start to finish. Couldn't fault it in any way. A really lovely country pub/restaurant. Will definitely return

The staff were extremely friendly and help from checking in to departing. I stayed at the inn for four night. The room was a good size and had everything you could need. I dinned in the restaurant and the restaurant had a good selection on the menu. The food was amazing. Will use this inn next time in the area.

This was a last minute booking for one night on our journey back from Northumberland to Lincolnshire. On our road trip we had stayed in four different hotels but this was by far the best. We had room no3 over the bar and eating area and yes it was a little noisy but it soon went quiet at closing time.... More

We were staying in the village for a few nights and thought we would eat at The Faifax on the Monday evening. The place was very busy even on a autumn Monday evening, probably due to the fact that they do room & dinner deals and some of the other local pub/restaurants close on a Monday. We had to wait...

We stayed in Room 9, which was the cottage at the back, which on first appearance, we were really pleased with. The only real issues we found were a lack of mirror in the twin room and the fact that the shower was really noisy. After attending a wedding at another venue the previous night, we woke up in our...
