The Roasts are to die for!!

We came a few time as we discovered it on a drove around the island and I can safely say it was the best place we have eaten on the island. The prices are a little high for a backpacker but it really is worth it! Definitely visit here at least once on your travels!

Best food EVER!!!! Especially after living on noodles and rice around asia for 5 months. I would definitely recommend the Mason Arms for all travellers. I went with a group of 8 people, all having different meals. Every one turned out delicious and lots of full tummys at the end. It was literally like being back home in an proper... More

Who would have thought you could find a mock Tudor English pub on a small tropical island. Just spent a very enjoyable Christmas Day there with my partner and friends . Very happy with the huge roast dinner and great atmosphere.

Stumbled across this traditional style English pub while riding around the island and it instantly captivated me!

Going to go back again tonight to get some homely heartily grub before leaving the... More

A bit on the pricey range but no worries if you like a good selection of ales. Guinness on tap a natural prerequisite. Good for big parties in its spacious garden.

Fantastic food and beer. The Sunday roast was amazing, washed down with a pint of Guinness. Just what we needed after being on Thailand for 7 weeks. Highly recommend this place.
