this is a basic place to eat, you get what you pay for, value for money, not a lot on plates but you pay for what you get

After our drinks orders were taken we waited 20 mins for them. I went to the bar to find out where they were and I was told they had lots of orders... it was not busy!! By this time our drinks arrived at the same time as food. Food was ok, chips were just warm rather than hot fresh, and... More

Dropped int the Stonemasons for food with a friend, Being the week between Christmas and New Year may have meant that it was less busy than normal. We were served very quickly and food order taken, there is a large 'specials' board at either end of the bar which is normally the best to choose from. We both had the... More

we went to stonemasons for my husbands birthday and it was lovely and even the grand children enjoyed it. It has a play area out the front that you can see them playing on. The food was lovely with a very friendly service.

Had been once previously, so thought was worth trying again to see if had improved. It's still one of those chain type places where the basics are there but the execution doesn't quite get there. Food is pitched at the economy level and while OK not encouraging a quick return, as there are several alternatives in the area, all of... More

So, always meet up with a friend at Stone mason. Normally greeted professionally! Well not this time! So stand at the "please wait to be seated sign" to then just be ignored by various members of staff. Then to be told to find a seat ourself - what's the point in the sign if it's not needed. So choose our... More

Rang 3 times before someone finally answered the phone, turned up and saw that there was no table service due to lack of staff- fair enough but at 3pm on a Sunday they could have coped. Ordered at the bar and didn't have too long of a wait, food was good and hot, however, the waitress was awful. No smile,... More

I went to the Stonemasons with a group of friends after work. This is not a great place for food, but you ought to know that going in. What you do get is a friendly waitress, cheap food of indeterminate quality and a clean environment. My only complaint is that since the coffee machine was not working there was no... More
