Yes there is was a fridge in the room we stayed, not sure if that applies to all rooms, best thing is to ask the question direct to Pinewood.

We were all-inclusive but I remember that the prices for beer were OK. My wife suggested that next time we should do half board (breakfast & dinner). The pizzas are made to order in their own pizza oven and first class!
