Just returned from spending a week at the Fairfax Arms. This is our third visit, but the first under the new ownership. Everything was just perfect; friendly, helpful staff, nothing too much trouble and the food was excellent. A good selection of hot and cold food at breakfast, beautifully presented with an equally impressive menu for lunch and evening dinner.... More

We stopped off when passing for some lunch. Ease of access, as I have a large wheelchair was good. The waiter was very friendly and hepful. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, with a wide range available on the menu.

The waiter who received us was extremely friendly, dealt with all queries and served us in a timely fashion. I had the barbecued ribs, and they were wonderful. Well cooked, with homemade coleslaw (would have liked more of it though as it was lovely!) my partner had the cheeseburger, which was gorgeous. The chips were great and not oily. The... More

I would recommend The Fairfax, it's in a quiet country village next to a small stream, so you can have a drink in the beer garden or indoor eating areas and relax in peace. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable and you shouldn't go there without sampling the restaurant - it was superb food at reasonable prices. Real good... More

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

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
