A really lovely pub in a beautiful location. The food was excellent and the portions very generous. The evening that we visited, three of the tap beers were unavailable, leaving a limited selection of bottled lager for the non-real ale fans. Service seemed a bit...More

We had dinner overlooking the fells from the terrace. Service was good. Pork confit, Cullen Skink and Brie bruschetta were amazing. Portions are huge! Lovely odd pub. Accommodation looked tempting too. Looked like the rooms overlooked the view.

Room was perfect (Strawberry Bank Suite), and so was the service from staff. No residents' lounge, but we didn't need one.....the...More

We had lunch in Mason Arms on the first day of our 4-day stay in Kendal. It was very busy, as it was the Easter long weekend, and at lunchtime they unfortunately don't do reservations; however, this is understandable as it is a pub-style place,...More

We were last in this pub over 30 years ago and it was a pleasant surprise to find it was still a great place. We had lunch with friends and sitting outside in the sunshine was bliss, lovely views over the surrounding countryside. As well...More
