“Great meal!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

I hadn't been to Masons since the year it opened and wow, how it's changed. The pianist was lovely and added to the relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent and the set menu had so much choice. Definitely recommend the smoked duck starter. Everything is so beautifully presented too. Staff were very good and nice we could relax in the bar with a bottle of prosecco after the meal, before settling up. Not many good local restaurants, but Masons is definitely up there! Will be returning soon.

“Great Value Midweek Meal”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We often eat at Masons and have never been disappointed. Excellent food, helpful and friendly staff and very spacious. If you sign up for their regular e-mails they periodically have half price off all food offers Monday to Friday lunches. We have just come back from there after another great meal. On the menu today were a roast half shoulder of lamb on garlic mash, a sea bream and red mullet duo and a Côte de boeuf on the bone rib eye steak. Sign up and enjoy these deals.

“Quality friendly restaurant”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic quality food combined with friendly and efficient service. We've been twice now and we will be back. Tonight I had the seafood starter of mackerel mousse, salmon, white bait and roll mop....... delicious and fresh! Corn fed chicken with apricot stuffing and dauphinois potatoes.... mmmm moist and yum!! well worth the money ;)

“A Great New Year.”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

10 of us attended the dinner/dance at Masons for New Year's Eve and it was excellent. From reception at time of first arrival, our seating arrangements, the whole meal, the service and the dancing to finish were all fantastic and everyone enjoyed themselves - without exception.
We fully intend to do the same again next year and wish to thank Antonia and her team for a great evening.
Strongly recommended.

“Not as good as it used to be.....”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

I've visited a few times over the last couple of years and our visit this weekend wasn't great. The staff overall are ok but they hardly had anything on the menu - particularly the starters. There were several small things wrong which when added together created a very forgettable visit. They need to pull their socks up not only to justify their prices but also compete with other great restaurants in Essex. Such a shame it's not what it was a few years back.
