The Fairfax Arms, Main Street, Gilling EastAs the fields fill with lambs and the daffodils bursts into flower we know Spring is on the way.This is the time of year when we think about Spring cleaning.

The Fairfax Arms, well renown C17th country inn in Gilling East in Ryedale, has gone the extra mile and had a giant Spring clean too. After the Christmas flooding which affected their cellar, it has been all hands on deck as they prepare for Spring. The Fairfax Arms is now open again for business after the major refurbishment which has been taken recently.

Andrew Daly ,manager of the Fairfax Arms “ There has been a substantial investment made as we have had a full refurbishment of the cellar. It has been a very positive step to combat any future flooding like we saw on Boxing Day 2015 when the stream outside the pub flooded and over split into the cellar .  We are delighted that we are now able to offer a cellar holding a larger selections  of local and traditional ales such as Striding the Riding from local Helmsley Brewing Co just 6 miles away and  Ampleforth Abbey Cider from across the valley. Supporting other Yorkshire breweries such as Tetleys and Black Sheep from Masham with regularly changing guests ales from Yorkshire.”

We welcome locals and visitors from near and far. We already offer an excellent food menu which contains products from local suppliers and can now offer a wider choice local liquid refreshment too. tuborg lager  and Somersby Cider are two of our new drinks on offer. We are happy that with the new piping and cooling system we can now offer even more consistency than before. Local beer drinkers have already seen the beer improve . “ It is well worth travelling the distance to the Fairfax Arms to enjoy a really good pint of beer.  Already we have tasted a difference and it is grand".said regular Jack Peckitt.
