“Good food and always good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Never had a bad meal at the Masons (20+ visits) Please ignore silly comments about Mother's Day. The pub is very very popular so it is best to eat at off peak times. The staff are great.

“Packed in like Sardines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Booked a meal for Mother's Day and it was very busy with not much room to move about. Beef was lovely and tender but the veg tasteless and a hollow, hard yorkshire pudding which I couldn't eat. I know Mother's day is a very busy day but I think they should limit the number of diners, which would make it a far more pleasurable experience. Would go again but not on Mother's Day - too many people packed in.

“dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

had been told about this place and upon visiting i think my expectations were too high. not sure if its just not my cup of tea or if it was actually just the place and food itself being mediocre, which is why i gave an average mark. shame really.
