We stumbled upon this because our base for a stay in the area didn’t have food available. Lucky for us - excellent food and beer, served by pleasant, helpful hosts. Highly recommended.

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.
