Just back from a 4 night stay here and it was difficult to find fault. The food was wonderful with the best ribs we have ever tasted. Great choice and not too dear. Staff were helpful and friendly. The suite was well appointed and clean. Our only minor grouse is with their website which doesn't show the accommodation to best... More

Been here before, pricey and was a our treat on our hols. Never changes - worth popping in for a drink if you cannot afford the meal. Lovely views over the fells outside, inside - cosy, wonderful atmosphere. Excellent service, welcoming for all the family. The food is always faultless and I cannot stress enough what a wonderful place this... More

Lovely pub tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Windermere and Ambleside on the edge of the Lake District. Good food. Good beer. Nice outside area with good views. Worth a visit: although booking advised if you want to eat in the restaurant.

This was our 2nd visit here 4yrs after the 1st and we were not disappointed. Menu offers something for everyone; quality of food excellent; staff very friendly and polite. The decor of this restaurant is very simple, warm and welcoming.

We have just returned home after spending a really lovely little break at the Mason Arms. We booked our stay very last minute and were very lucky to get put into Lyth Cottage which is a self catering cottage which is attached to the pub, it was spottlessly clean and had a lovely comfy bed and exellent shower and a...

It was lovely, nice and clean, lovely big bath and comfy bed! We ate in the bar, great good quality food at reasonable price... More

We have never been disappointed by the food here :-) Although on this visit, we WERE disappointed, when the lady behind the bar stated, they don't start serving food in the evening until 6pm (despite a notice on their tables, saying that they serve food all day ? !!) At 5.50pm, when I requested to put our order in and... More

My wife and I are writers in the tourist trade abroad, and we found the Masons' Arms an excellent place for dinner. Nice authentic Lakeland pub atmosphere, ultra friendly staff (and locals), and a wide, honest to goodness menu, with little pretension, just good food at a reasonable price. If you find yourself in the Lyth Valley, Winster Valley or... More

What a great place to stay. We arrived at 11 knowing check in was 3 but the staff were happy to store our chilled food in the fridge and let us go on with our day. The room itself has a very strange layout. The tv is behind your head?? the shower is a challenge for even an average height... More
