Well we've been again 3 times since my last review and absolutely adore this place. The staff are fantastic, John looked after us as did his staff. The courtyard room is the best, we have had same room on several visits! Food is scrumdiddlyumptious! The area in which it is set is pure indulgence if you enjoy wrapping up warm... More

Stayed just for one night as a family get together, the restaurant was very busy so top tip is always to book a table. The meal was first class and cooked well. The staff were attentive and the whole place was relaxed and friendly. The standard of the rooms were good. We had a room in the court yard, it... More

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

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
