We stayed as a base for 4 nights, and from the room to the staff and locals we had a lovely stay, only sort of moan was they ran out of Golden Sheep, but didn't disappoint for long because the Black Sheep was just as good to drink instead.

We just happend to be passing & thought we'd nip in for food. Unfortunately food isn't served all day & we were too early for dinner. The pub itself looked lovely. Nice outdoor seating area in quiet village. Great to see Timmermans available. My favourite 😊

We visited as a family of 4 recently with two small children, staying overnight in a family room. The room was clean and modern and provided a comfortable night's stay however, not particularly geared towards young families. We ate in the restaurant but were disappointed that the children's menu consisted merely of four basic meals written in pen on a...

Stayed here last night, great place to go stay if you want to get away from it all. We didn't eat here, but the food looked great on the way to the tables, and the bar was fairly busy until quite late. Our room was very modern, with an equally desirable shower with only one complaint, it was extremely warm...

A very warm welcome from all the staff and a very comfortable stay. For a pub with rooms it exceeded expectations with very comfortable beds and beautiful bed linen and toiletries. Lunch, evening meal and breakfast all very enjoyable and beautifully cooked. Cosy Country Inn interiors with outdoor seating in a lovely spot beside the stream. We look forward to...

We stopped at The Fairfax Arms as we'd driven past it before and thought it looked very quaint. The food was very good, and we didn't have to wait long. The true appeal of it for us was the setting. The area is stunningly beautiful, surrounded by countryside. We sat outside on the lawn, overlooking the stream. This meant we...

Myself and my boyfriend spent 1 night at the Fairfax Arms a couple of months ago. The room was amazing. Really well decorated and furnished to perfection. Sofa, TV, sound system, wifi, huge very comfortable bed, massive bathroom with a large Jacuzzi bath, separate shower cubicle and double sinks. Best place l I’ve stayed in! Definitely worth the price tag....

Evening dinner at the Fairfax Arms did not deliver. Tomato soup was bright orange & so scorchingly hot it could only have come out of a microwave. Husband needed to ask for steak knife for lamb chops (one good, one poor). Cod with risotto could have had a lot more flavour. An warm welcome and attentive service would have been...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Tripadvisor. I would like to give you some feedback on your comments. Firstly regarding your soup, we certainly do not microwave any food that comes out of our kitchen, it is all done on our hotplate. This must be the first time I have had a complaint of the...

Stopped off for one night on the way home from a trip to the Dales. Staff friendly and accommodating from the start...Our room (12) was above the kitchen but didn't present too much of a problem. The room itself was well equipped and the walk in shower was great. The food on the night was top notch. These people are...

My family and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Fairfax Arms, where we celebrated my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary, and I’ve got to say it’s been the best weekend away we have EVER had!
