Two fresh jugs of gravy and horseradish. The best Sunday lunch I have had in a very long time. I am very fussy and usually prefer to cook at... More

We waited ages without notification or apology. Its not hard as a waiter/ress to pop up to a table and ask for drinks orders or to say food is on the way. Lunch when it arrived well over an hour later was cold, the portions mean, the turkey was as dry as a bone and chewy to boot enough to... More

A lovely night out at the Masons Arms. Beautiful food, always looks far more sophisticated then you'd expect for the price. Excellent staff who really can't do enough for you. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Beautiful food, good staff, we had a party of 8 and we only waited around 30 minutes, that's magic. The one and only issue was the car park it's too small and there is nowhere near to park. still 10/10 though 👍🏼

Just had a lovely roast at the Masons I was very impressed with the taste you can tell they use quality. I was more impressed with the flavour of the chicken and how tender the meat was.

Thanks to Nigel and the staff at Mason arms, lovely meal, all orders were delivered hot with separate dishes of veg,plenty of gravy and enjoyed by all. Car park little tight there are two one either side of the building but small. Other than that can't fault the food or staff very friendly and courteous.

Thank Steve R
