I have regularly visited the Masons Arms, when I can find it, over the years and whilst I regret the removal of the Belgian fruit beer on tap and one of the largest collections of bottled beer in the North the place retains its atmosphere and the food is hearty, well made and plentiful. The little quirky rooms are fun... More

After reading reviews we decided to dine at the Masons Arms. We squeesed onto a small table in the bar area but there were 2 other tables which could probably seat about 7 people by the fire. These were occupied by 2 people who were neither eating or drinking, but chatting to a member of staff who we presumed was... More

We visited between Christmas and New Year and we were glad we had booked as it was busy. As we are local we were expecting a good quality meal as we have never heard anyone say anything negative about this venue. It's a lovely proper pub complete with roaring fire. Everyone enjoyed their meals and as everyone had chosen something... More

We last ate here earlier in 2014, and were really impressed, as were some Americans at a neighbouring table. This time we sat downstairs, and had a nice table in a cosy corner. The saff were really helpful, especially with explaining the gluten free options to my wife. The meal was excellent, and there was no rush between courses, which... More

We eat at the Mason's 2 or 3 times a year. It can be a bit up and down but we had a good meal and good service on this occasion. Less good was the tiny table for two we were squeezed onto, despite being the first into the restaurant and despite there being a couple of empty tables free... More

Just got back from a day out in the Lake District and had lunch at The Masons Arms Strawberry Bank. We live fairly locally and over the years have visited the Masons on a number of occasions. As always the food was of exceptional quality. The staff were very busy but very pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. The building... More

We ate in the bar because the restaurant was booked up. The food was really nice and the beer was good as well.
