I'm a local and have eaten many times here before the recent extension, and always had good food at decent prices. We went there recently as a party of 8 for a birthday meal and I was stunned at the prices on the menu! The food was OK, but quite ordinary and not up to the prices that they're charging.... More

Before the extension was carried out at Fairways we dined there quite often being locals but last night we ate in the new Orangery and it was an absolute disaster. The menu is very limited and extremely expensive. I chose rack of lamb with minted peas, puy lentils and red wine jus for £21. The lamb was small and tasteless,... More

I do not like posting negative reviews but I'm afraid I have to on this occasion. I have eaten in Fairways on many occasions prior to the addition of the new orangery and have always been very satisfied. However I ate there last night for the first time post-orangery. Very small, uninspiring menu, VERY expensive, ie fish and chips £18!!... More

the menu is far too expensive for what it is. It is not a michelin restaurant. shame because it will drive good custom away, I am a local who would use this on a regular basis, apart from that the hotel is of a first class standard and a very nice place to relax and have a drink.

This was a surprise trip to celebrate my husbands birthday. The staff were great and made the table for lunch really festive. We stayed and the family came for lunch, twelve diners who were all impressed with the food and service. The room was furnished to a very high standard with a fantastic bathroom. This was not our first visit... More

We have just come back from a 2 night short break at The Fairways Hotel and it was amazing.The staff couldn't be more helpful and the food was great. We had a Sea view room and a 3 Course Evening meal which was lovely.I would highly recommend this place to anybody. Breakfast was wonderful with plenty of choice.
