The food was excellent, piping hot, tasty and quickly served. Generous portion size. The choice was varied, with a usual menu plus daily specials.

We have visited the Masons Arms on numerous occasions and have never yet been disappointed with the qaulity of food on offer or the standard of service and always a warm friendly welcome. If your expecting general run of the mill pub grub then you'll be pleasantly surprised it's definately a cut above the norm, that having been said it's... More

the quality of the food depends on the chefs attitude one week it can be wonderful the next its just mediocre.. they are trying to be a gastro pub and a lot of improvements have been made but they still have some way to go

Lunched here a few times. It is a described as a 'gastro-pub' which is fair, the main course food is varied and of excellent quality and decent portions too. The deserts are only OK for my taste. They are infamous for the advertised hand cut real chips.... they are good! Not bad value for money. The pub is small and... More
