“Burgers to die for!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

3 girlies out for a natter and lunch. Service really friendly, attentative but not intrusive. One reviewer mentioned 'fish and chips' - should have gone to a well known franchise of opticians!! I didn't see fish on the menu!! Okay, so you pay more than you would in a burger chain.. but no comparison. The food is fresh, home-made and delicious. Chunky chips, crispy battered onion rings and then those burgers!!!! Plenty of choice, but low on veggie options. Be hungry when you go - the portions are generous.

“Very good service, loud music, food just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This restaurant is a pleasant place to be, although the music is far too loud. The service is very good and friendly. The food is just OK. It's a fish n chips, grills and burger place, really. The salmon fishcakes are quite good, but not exceptional. The puddings are good. The coffee is not great.

“Excellent food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

My partner and I visited Masons one lunchtime with our 3 month old son. The service was fantastic and they were accommodating to our needs. Food was fresh and tasted great. We all left feeling happy, full and without spending much money!

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Six hungry people fed with well cooked, tasty, honest food. Good service. Large spacious tables. Good city centre location just off the main drag.
