Visited on the 19/03/2017 @ 2pm, it was full but they just squeezed us in and we were told there was a wait. Unfortunately the Roast beef had sold out so we went for a roast leg of Lamb sunday lunch, we weren't disappointed! The meat was delicious, everything was freshly cooked, nothing frozen, the only fault with the food... More

We chose this pub because it's about three minutes off the A1M on the way to Newcastle and we were hungry. We're really glad we did and would definitely pop in here again. It's an averagely attractive pub with wonderful service and gorgeous food - with a huge car park. Thanks for a lovely meal.

My wife and I have had the pleasure to eat here 3 times in the last month. A delicious quick lunch, a fine Sunday lunch and a superb evening meal with friends. The food is constantly first rate and the service is well judged to ensure you feel welcome in the spotlessly clean and well presented dining room.

Called in for lunch recently and were very pleased we did. What a first class establishment this pub/restaurant is continuing to be. The little extra wait is well worth it and you understand why when food arrives, wonderful. Can't wait to return.

Quite simply the tastiest food we have eaten in a long, long time. A lovely relaxed atmosphere with a real log fire. The staff were excellent; friendly & helpful. I cannot recommend highly enough. Well done to The Masons Arms.

The Masons is, by far, my favourite place to go either for just a drink or for a meal. The food is always so tasty (maybe too tasty, as I always find room for a dessert). I also absolutely love that we can take our puppy, Bailey, with us. Kim and her team always welcome us with a big smile... More

We found this hidden gem on our last evening of staying in North Yorks. We had an absolutely delicious meal..can't praise it enough. My husband had ribeye steak with all the trimmings...I had lamb rump with artichoke hearts, parsnip puree, parsnip crisps and mangetout. Both of the meats were so tender you could have cut them with a spoon. We... More

Thank you for this lovely five bubble review - we wish you lived closer! It's great being called a hidden gem, but it is also very frustrating as lots of people still think the pub is closed. We are only 100 meters from the very busy A59 and less than a minute from the A1M and it would be great... More
