Our 2nd visit to this lovely pub and we were not disappointed. We rang late Sunday morning as we were in the area. Unfortunately they were fully booked, however 10minutes later they rang back and offered us a table. We had roast beef Sunday lunch which was very tasty, beef was excellent. Lovely vegetables especially the cauliflower cheese.

The only reason we haven’t given a 5, is because the vegetable portion size is rather small for 2 people.

Highly recommend and will definitely return.

Thanks for your review, we are sorry that your portion size was to small for you, you should have said we would have given you more no problem, but we have made a point of making sure that this doesn't happen again.
Look forward to seeing you again

We were joined by two friends from the South who love coming up North. We were fed in the Orangery - excellent setting. The food came quickly and it was superb - 2 lamb pies ,a half chicken and a salmon which was quite large.We 2 men had a starter - the scallops in garlic butter were yummy. I had a creme brulee .With 6 drinks it came to £104 which we thought was Good value for the quality. Very attentive service - a visit is recommended. If you can raise a group of friends and live or are staying within a 10 mile radius of the pub they will lay on a free collection and return mini bus. Ask for James to discuss.

We recently went to the Fairfax Arms with family for dinner. We sat in the new conservatory and had a good meal , with good service for what I thought was reasonable value for money. The pub favourites were excellent as were the daily specials and so after all of this we decided to return the following Friday and booked a table for 5 . The food on our following visit was just as good but the table I’d specifically booked for the night wasn’t available and the service in the bar area wasn’t as good as the the service we’d experienced in the conservatory. A good eatery 5 star first visit / 4 star on the second.
