Went for a pleasant Bank Hols lunch. Place was very quiet and wondered if it was because of the bad reviews. To be fair food was lovely just not warm enough for me. Only one issue and to me a big one as it was the same last time I went there... The toilets are dirty and need more regular... More

We had booked and to be fair were seated promptly but were squeezed in to quite a small space for 5 people. Food was mediocre. Veg and stuffing undercooked and the Yorkshire puddings tasted odd. Overall a good selection and the staff were pleasant. Main gripe was being constantly checked on to see whether we wanted anything else when they... More

My wife and I visit the Masons on a regular basis and the food and staff, including the bar staff are very polite, friendly and professional. Two names stand out tonight. Martha the waitress who was very pleasant and efficient and Liam, the young man behind the bar, very polite and helpful. Thank you all for yet another great meal,... More

The main course was carvery with a choice of turkey, beef, pork or ham or combination if you prefer. The veg excellent and as much as you could fit on your plate. Desert was... More

Probably best not to go on a Sunday, too busy. Don't like the queues so pick your moments. Staff friendly, so all in all worth the experience, but as I say, pick your times out of the RUSH. The staff serve you at tables with drinks and are generally really helpful, but at busy times make sure you call them... More

We didn't have room here, just went for a bite of lunch in the carvery. Going into a national chain of pubs who have a business model that caters for the masses by rules from head office, which always seem to mean minimal staffing and training, i didn't expect much. However, even low expectations weren't met. We waited an awkward... More

Always a warm welcome from the natural landlord and wife team. Staff also helpful and friendly. Good meal and drinks and a lovely well kept garden for the summer months in the sunshine. A favourite of ours.
