Love coming to the Mason's Arms, the food and the views are to die for! I love love love the ribs! It's an amazing place to go in summer when you can sit and admire the views outside, but it's just as good in the winter cosied up to the fire. The food is brilliant and the selection of beers/drinks... More

I headed up there today with my two dogs. Great outdoor area for us with heaters provided..very cosy sitting outside with a fantiastic view just as it started to snow. I thoroughly enjoyed my pork belly and small tipple of merlot. Will definately make a trip back there soon to try out more of the menu. Staff were very friendly... More

Our stay in the Gummers Howe Suite on the way to Scotland for Christmas was perfect. The room was snug but had everything we needed (enough to stay for a few nights if you were touring the local area as well) with a comfy bed and a nice view across the countryside. The pub and restaurant areas were comfy and... More

Been before for a quick pint and wanted to return and sample the rooms and menu. What a find with a good selection of beers and a menu as good as any we have found for similar pubs in the Lakes. The room we stayed in was more like a cottage with a kitchen, bedroom with walk in shower and... More

We rented out three of the rooms which came with a mini-kitchen, which we didn't realise. So you could knock up a bit of food if you liked. The bed was on a mezzanine up some stairs. The bed was super comfy and sitting area very snug and cosy. Lovely. Shame the free wifi didn't stretch to the rooms, but... More

We are annual visitors to the Lakes with our daughters (aged 12 and 10) and the Masons Arms has become a regular fixture of our trip. This year the pub proved as reliable as ever: great selection of beers, very friendly staff, wide ranging menu both for adults and children. One thing in particular we noticed this year was the...

We stayed in the Winster Cottage (the larger of the 2 cottages behind the pub) and it was great. An open fire on the cottage ground floor (diner/lounge and kitchen combined). The kitchen has all standard appliances (including cooker) and has an adjacent drying room. Up on the "1.5" floor there is a lounge with TV and double sofa bed.... More

We had an amazing stay at the Masons Arms for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Everyone was very friendly. The accommodate was first class and the food in the restaurant was delicious. We did a really great walk from the church at Cartmel Fell. It was about four miles and had some fantastic views. They will give you a copy of... More

The best Cullen Skink I have ever eaten (outside my own kitchen). Delicious with a perfectly poached egg on top. Himself had a home made local steak pie with lovely fresh veg and 'real' chips. Lovely old bar and great vibe , friendly but quiet. Too cold to eat outdoors so sadly had to leave our dog in the car... More
