Lunch very good for both of us, Theakstons OP excellent, service very good. But a tad expensive ( nearly £18 each 1 course) for quite small portions, we had sliced roast sirloin beef with veg Yorkshire pud and horseradish, but it all tasted great!

The menu is extensive, the food is very good and the beer is unbelievable. I have wanted to visit Masham for decades so this was a pilgrimage for me. We both enjoyed the experience and we shall be back. What a treat to visit here....More
