Had an amazing Mothers Day lunch here. Food was perfect. We had soup, prawn cocktail and roast dinners and all of it was perfect. Kids menu is great too with a good, homemade variety to choose from. Service was first class and the surrounding and atmosphere was lovely. Can't fault anything about our experience. Would highly, highly recommend.

We were staying at Studford Luxury Lodges & decided to take advantage of their courtesy mini bus service to spend out last night having dinner in their sister establishment The Fairfax Arms. We weren't disappointed. It was a Monday evening so it was fairly quiet with only a few other diners but the place had a lovely feel & atmosphere...

We booked the Fairfax Arms as it had been recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. We were able to take our dog which was a bonus. The room was lovely and the food was fantastic.

Stayed for 2 nights with our border collie in one of the courtyard rooms taking advantage ot the 2 for 1 seasonal offer which represented excellent value for money. The room was superb with the largest TV we have ever come across in a pub - I feel sure it could have been viewed from the top of Sutton Bank...

Had the garlic mushrooms exquisite creamy deliciousness, followed by the burger. Burger wise would have been nicer a little rarer and a tad crispier on the onion rings but generally was lovely,...

We spent a weekend staying at the Fairfax arms while we were visiting family in the area and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Most of the rooms are over the pub so expect some noise in the evenings until 11ish but it was quiet after that and the pub is a great place to eat and drink. James...

Six of us had a fine leisurely lunch here recently. The choice was extensive and everything we ordered from mussels as a starter to the roast beef as a main course and lemon tart as a dessert where all perfect. As the pub is close to Ampleforth College one is advised to book early for a very tasty Sunday lunch.
