Splendid food, cosy atmosphere, friendly service and beautiful location. The door-step sandwiches would feed a horse and the Cullen Skink, a thick & creamy soup of smoked haddock, Savoy cabbage, leeks and potatoes, topped with smoked salmon and a poached egg to finish, served with freshly baked bread was a meal in itself and excellent

We ate here after it was recommended by our B&B hosts; we would never have found it otherwise. It has a cosy, country pub atmosphere and was super busy the night we visited. There's lots of seating outside with heaters and canopies, plus plenty of nooks and crannies to occupy inside. The food is fairly standard fair for this type... More

Extremely busy when we visited (during half term week) but we still managed to find a table for lunch, and the food we ordered arrived very promptly. A good choice of 'pub food' - good size portions and very tasty. Reasonably priced. A good choice of local and bottled beers. The pub has a number of rooms, which we understand... More

Another Lake District pub that is as exactly as you would expect it to be. Menu different to most, but had the usual classics. The pulled pork slider and fish finger sandwich were particular hits with my family for lunch. The fish cake and chunky chips were slightly disappointing, fish cake didn't have a lot of taste and it was... More

I stayed at the Mason's Arms with some friends a couple of weeks ago. We all enjoyed the accommodation but oh dear...what is going on in the restaurant? There was a series of errors with our order which, on their own would not have been a problem . However, in addition one of our party ordered a blue cheese sauce... More

It's the first time I've been here but my partner recommended it as he'd been a few times. I wasn't disappointed! We both opted for the steak and mushroom pie, it was absolutely delicious and very filling without being too much! We sat outside in the heated patio area afterwards which was great. I didn't get our waitress' name but... More

We stopped here for an evening meal. Great oldie world pub, superb selection of ales and beers. Food was plentiful and hot and whilst not the best tasting we've ever had it was nice and very reasonably priced too. Staff were friendly and helpful.
