Everything about The Fairfax Arms shows the effort and care brothers Rob and Ed and their team put in to making this a memorable dining destination. Its rural location lends itself to stunning walking routes and bike rides and it’s a great place to get away from it all. Whether you’re a returning local, a hiker or biker, The Fairfax Arms has something for every taste and every pocket. Housed in a handsome 17th-century inn built by Sir Thomas Fairfax, it’s a charming affair and has retained an olde-worlde feel. It is believed that Sir Thomas and Oliver Cromwell had a drink in the pub the night before going to battle. The log fire, candles, wooden beams and swing music gently playing in the background all add to the atmosphere and the oak bar was even made locally by Rob’s uncle.

Head chef Ben Turner has created an à la carte menu using quality, local produce. Ben’s 60-day-salt-aged salted steaks are sourced from the local butcher and are extremely popular. Other delectable mains include beer-battered fish with chunky chips; pie of the day; roast partridge and braised ox cheek. The Fairfax burger turns heads at a whopping six inches tall, stuffed with onion rings, bacon andmature Cheddar. To top your meal off, why not indulge in a sticky toffee pudding or warm crumble and custard? Tipples on offer include guest ales and beer, locally brewed Black Sheep and Tetley beer, and a choice of wine and spirits.

Upstairs are 12 luxurious bedrooms, which will ensure a sound night’s sleep. Alternatively, tucked away amid a private woodland in the glorious Yorkshire Moors National Park you’ll find their sister venue Studford Luxury Lodges, which opened in 2014. The six lodges each provide king-size beds with handmade mattresses, a TV, an inbuilt sauna and outdoor hot tub and a welcome hamper to make guests feel fully relaxed and looked after. For Rob and Ed, seeing people enjoy themselves is what they find most rewarding – as you’ll soon come to realise when visiting.
