Attending a family gathering in the pub and the staff really couldn’t do enough to ensure that we were all happy. Service throughout the afternoon was really good, all the staff really going the extra mile. The food was superb. Thanks.

Decided to ditch our usual easy curry night option in favour of a more fine dining experience. The Masons is a cosy, welcoming pub with lovely staff and a great menu. Will be going back with my parents and other friends.

Been a while since we last visited the Mason Arms ... The staff were very welcoming and the menu has a good selection of dishes which are very reasonably priced. The food was excellent as was the service. A very enjoyable evening.

We love coming to eat and drink @ The Masons Arms. Always a friendly atmosphere and the food is 2nd to none. Fully recommend a visit here as you won't be disappointed. Look out for their spectacular theme nights too! 😁

Quite simply the best main meal we've had in a long time. We visited without realising the kitchen was closing but they were so kind and allowed us to order anyway. The chicken supreme is AMAZING. Delicious, full of flavour and beautifully done. We practically...More
