We visited the hotel for lunch recently. It came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. The building was very attractive and the service was friendly and efficient. The menu was so interesting for a lunch menu and all four of us enjoyed our varied choices. the view from the upstair's window was stunning and the furnishings just completed the traditional feel...

I decided on the starter portion of ribs instead of the main course size and i am so glad i did as the portion size... More

I have stayed here before and used the bar and restaurant on many other occasions, so I drove there really looking forward to my stay. The rooms are fantastic, more of a suite than just a room. The selection of drinks in the bar is superb, but when we ordered food, we found the quality and service was not up... More

There are no words to describe how breathtakingly beautiful this place is. I booked the strawberry bank suite for the weekend for my boyfriends birthday and it certainly did not disappoint. The suite itself was absolutely stunning. The bath in the room was a really nice touch. We ate in the restaurant the first night, and although it was a... More

Very nice location with a selection of nice clean rooms. They serve great food and some pretty good beer. Lovely walks from the door. You will get a 4 mile and a 9 mile option with a very accurate map. It's obviously busy Summer weekends with a great buzz.

We were recommended to stop at The Masons Arms whilst on an off road safari (Kankku). We were so glad we did. The place is fantastic. Beautifully kept, charming staff, great food and stunning views. They were very busy but accommodated us with ease. Even if the weather is a bit ropey there's plenty of cover. Top marks to The... More

We arrived at the Masons Arms for a two night break while travelling around the UK. This was just what we needed after a hectic few days. This beautiful quaint country inn overlooks the winchester valley. There is nothing for miles around, so if you like the business of a town on your doorstep this is not for you. Our... More
