The Fairfax Arms has so many positives; the location, country decor, friendly staff, very clean rooms and a nice cooked breakfast menu selection. The negatives would be our room (Room 12), which was up an external staircase (no problem as we knew about this on booking) but with a doorway only fit for hobbits (I banged my head countless times...

We stayed here at the end of Feb and ate at the pub both nights. The food was delicious. Although there was hardly any break between eating the starter to receiving the main course which was a little bit over facing as the portions were so generous. Great breakfast too. We stayed in a room above the pub restaurant and... More

I visited The Fairfax Arms with three friends to celebrate a friends birthday. We stayed in room 10 a family room. The room was decorated to a very high standard, it consisted of two bedrooms sharing one bathroom. It was very well equipped and full of lots of lovely extras. The homemade biscuits were divine. I had luckily booked a... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was beautifully finished, clean and everything we could have asked for. We will be coming back! Thanks for a lovely, relaxing break.

Lovely bedroom with excellent bathroom. Very cheerful, friendly, and efficient staff. Surprisingly large choice menu for a relatively small establishment with a separate vegetarian menu. Food delicious. Breakfast in the dining room with a large log fire, cosy. Not the place to go if you are on a diet!

Second stay and did not disappoint. From booking process to arrival through to eating in the restaurant and departure. (Even though a little stretched on one of the nights so service suffered a little). Good to see a country pub doing so well. Perfect in every way. Cosy country pub. Delicious food. Warm welcome. Picturesque location. Who could ask for... More

stayed here for one night in room 11 which was superb and very well worth the upgrade. The room is huge with everything you could need, from ipod dock to super Jacuzzi bath. Even more amazing was the warm welcome for our cavalier spaniel. The evening meal was delightful and the breakfast was faultless. Will definitely be back.
