This was the best meal out we have had for ages the gammon and chips was lovely and tender. The place had a great atmosphere and compared to the Toby Calvery was a fantastic experience. The staff were all very kind and didn't mind changing side dishes.

Me and my boyfriend came here for a meal and we're served by a lovely waitress named Ashleigh... I'm quite fussy sometimes with eating but she was happy to change things on the order and wasn't phased at all when we asked for extras and exchanges on food.. the meal was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed it.. great food, great...

Everything about this place is awful. Staff are so sweet but the food is awful, waiting times are silly. Tables not clean all sticky Glasses have all wash marks on them, ok for a very cheap budget meal.

Have been here a few times over the last few years and can honestly say it's been a total let down every visit. The staff are clearly not happy to be working here as they were constantly apologising for everything and rolling their eyes. The food was of poor standard. The kids meals were revolting and I knew they must... More

We have been to the Stonemasons arms several times for noon lunchtime with the family and always had the same experience. It is definitely a pub set up to cater for families. The staff and service are excellent. The staff are friendly and always go that extra mile to make sure we are looked after. There is a good range... More
