Went here last week for lunch.The restaurant was really busy- think it may have been because of half term. There was only one person serving- however service was friendly, and quick despite his being under pressure. The food was lovely and portions were very generous. I would definitely recommend here for lunch or dinner in York.

In York for just one night, hadn't booked anywhere but we had seen the restaurant earlier in the day. We got the last table. there was just one young man serving but he was very relaxed and everything came out on time. We had the nachos to start between three of us and that was enough.The mains were good, hubby had the steak and son and I had the burgers. Can't really explain but just everything that came out was just right and we eat cleared our plates. a really enjoyable evening.

Decided to try Mason's due to the good reviews and is child friendly tag. Food was excellent and importantly when you're with the kids, it came really quickly.

Portion were large, we shared nachos between 4 then couldn't finish our burgers! Kids loved their meals.

Really liked the simple, quality and unfussy decor which matched the menu perfectly. Service was fabulous and pricing straightforward and reasonable given the quality of the food and drinks served. Worth searching out.

This was our third visit to Masons (we went there twice last time in York) and it is every bit as good still. I had the chilli, which was very fresh and my only slight observation would be that it is not as big a meal as some of the others. Nonetheless, very good. My wife had the fish and chips, which was excellent. A bottle of wine between us and we were well satisfied once again. Relaxed, informal surroundings, a warm welcome, good food and wine. Would recommend to anyone.

Saw this place reviewed by other advisers and must say it lives upto it's reputation.

Great food and big potions and yes the chips are that good. Great value for money

Service was friendly and efficient and we would definitely return.
