The beer is well kept which is all we ask for. The fire is nice in the winter and we can sit out in the summer.

Returned to the freemasons for the mayday bank holiday weekend. Great food from the bbq and good live bands. Good service all round even though it was packed in the bar and beer garden.

This is the first time I have reviewed anywhere twice, but this place is worthy of mention again as it evolves, builds on its already great reputation, and delivers time after time for quality, ambience and character. First some context.........this is primarily a pub that also happens to do very good food. It doesn't pretend to be a high end gastro pub, or try to compete purely on the eating front, in a town like Knutsford it is just what is needed.......great beer, friendly service and excellent, value for money food.

I was surprised to read a previous review criticising the pies. They are made by the Great Northern Pie Company who have won a multitude of prestigious national awards for their hand crafted pies. I have tried them all and the shin of beef is my favourite, maybe it was just the wrong choice for the previous reviewer. Also I can recommend the gravy that certainly does not taste like packet mix at all, in fact better than most (not only my opinion but all my family agree!).

Last time we went in the children completely changed their order from what is described on the menu, this was cheerfully and easily accommodated, no questions, the pub just gets on with it. I can also thoroughly recommend the Sunday Dinners, the sticky toffee pudding is my son's latest favourite dessert and the beer garden is just like the pub..........quirky, unique, and very welcoming.

Set your expectations appropriately and you will not be disappointed.

Place was recommended. The pie I had was all pastry and potatoes. Mash was dry and gravy out of a packet. It's cheap but that's all will never go there again
