I have wanted to visit the Masons Arms for more years than I can remember, but as we do not live local it has never happened until today. We met up with some Cumbrian friends for lunch. Not the cheapest pub roast dinner we have eaten, but certainly one of the best. We were given loads of more free vegetables,...

The Masons is hidden away at the head of a valley with stunning views over the countryside albeit parking is a bit limited - it can get busy especially when the weather is good and there's a great patio area at the front to sit out in. Inside it's all Lakeland olde worlde with open fires and ranges and slate...

Have visited on a number of occasions, we have not always been able to be seated inside but their are plenty of outdoor tables with patio heaters, food ha always been lovely, service good and the building oozes quirky character.

Somewhat off the beaten track this was a 'surprise find'. The food was good - the amount of fries was excessive but this is not a complaint! The staff were helpful and overall this place was quite good value. Only had a meal - did not stay

Ate here at lunch time and was not disappointed. Service very good, all staff polite and friendly despite being rushed off their feet. Food was amazing and well worth the drive. We did not book, and only waited a short while to get a table. Never had a bad meal here.

My husband and I had a delicious meal here last week. We sat outside so we could take in the beautiful view. We had starters and mains and they were all fantastic. The service was very good too. The pub was very busy but in a good way. We will be back next time we are in the lakes.

We stopped here on spec as the outside view was spectacular. There are a good number of outside tables and chairs with umbrellas ( for rain or sun protection). Amazing menu where you are stuck to decide as you want everything. How often can you say that? Eventually opted for toasted bun with bbq pulled pork with coleslaw and crispy...
