We had been let down by other accommodation in York (despite booking) and were extremely grateful that the Masons Arms came to our rescue. They had only just finished refurbishing the rooms after the flooding, so we were very lucky to get the opportunity to say. It is finished immaculately and is extremely comfortable. The staff are wonderful and so... More

After months of closure due to the floods, Gary and Julie have made a welcome return to oversee the place, meaning that Julie's cooking is back on the menu. Huge portions, reasonable prices and an ever-changing menu coupled with friendly bar staff make this place a favourite when the owner's are in charge. As we live in York, I can't... More

Me and my partner stayed here for a few nights with my parents, on a sight seeing trip to York. The staff are lovely and helpful. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. It doesn't serve breakfast, but the beautiful, home cooked evening meals make up for this! Would definitely recommend and return again.

I've just passed this by on a sunny Sunday lunchtime and it is closed. All the signs outside say ' open all day' and 'food all day' & 'riverside terrace - sounded great but doors locked with no opening times displayed anywhere.

As we have been a few times, we called in for a meal between the afternoon and evening session at the barbican. We said that the next time we were in we would make a start on trying there unusual offers. We decided on the Venison burger with chips and a side salad, chips (real home made) and salad were...

Nice, clean room and good food for a good price, but above all a very friendly and hospitable landlord. We had a very good time. Rooms are not very big but they are clean and comfortable. The food portions are generous and the quality is very good. They don't offer breakfast but there is a small but good breakfast cafe... More

2 night midweek stay. Location is very good just outside the city walls with the benefit of free off street secure parking although the car park is small and there is not much maneuvering room. Rooms are in annexe at rear of the pub. The room was quite small but adequate, room had central heating and was easy to adjust... More

We dropped in to The Masons Arms around 2 pm on a Sunday. We were welcomed warmly and after being spoiled for choice by the offerings on the chalkboard menus we decided on the steak and ale pie and a roast. The hosts were really accommodating, the beer was great, the food was delicious and the portions were huge. A... More

Visited the Masons Arms one evening while spending a few days in York . We had a drink then spotted the blackboard menu by the bar . Great selection , so decided we'd eat there rather than look any further on a rainy evening . So glad we did ! My husband chose the game pie while I opted for... More
