Lovely looking place but that's about all

My first ever visit to the stone masons was a few years ago where myself and my family received horrendous service and a diabolical meal each . Yesterday however , I took my mum and 2 year old son out for lunch and decided to give the stone masons the benefit of the doubt and try them once again... read more

Used to use this pub in the past, I'm don't like the write negative reviews but will this time. My Lasagne was cooked to within an inch of being dry, my wife's Beef Lasagne had little beef in it. The side salad was a tiny bit of lettuce, but I did have a slice of Tomato and the garlic beard... More

I visited the stonemasons hoping for lunch twice in fact over the weekend, both times they were not serving food and the kitchen was shut! We travelled a way just to eat here and was absolutely appalled by how rude and intimidating the manager was towards not only customers but his staff as well, at one point he was obviously... More

The Stonemason's is our regular venue for family birthdays. The location is convenient, the food is reliable, there is a wide choice of meals, children are accommodated.

Having arrived at 4.50pm for a table booked for 5pm, we ordered some drinks at the bar and sat down at our reserved table and waited for our outstanding guests to arrive which they did at 5.15pm. A waitress asked if we required drinks, which we declined having gone to the bar already and she said she would be back... More

We come to the Stonemasons quite often as we live near by and recently the service seems to be going down hill each time we visit. On the last visit we were told there would be a fifteen minute wait for a table which we had no problem with but within 5 minutes the man who seemed to be running... More

Last reviewed this pub/restaurant in January, when the service was good but the food average. Sorry to say that the food is still average, but this time, the service was poor. Went in about 2:15pm on a Friday after the main rush was over, expecting the service to be better. The one "waitress" on duty seemed to be missing when... More
