My husband and I seek out restaurants in the Northwest for the occasional culinary "treat". We selected Freemasons based on its on-line menu and Bib Gourmand status and dined for the first time on Saturday the 21st of April. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed a pre-diner drink while taking in the pleasant surroundings. Staff were attentive without being overbearing and kept both water and alcohol flowing. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu and left feeling filled to the brim . The watercress soup and crab courses were personal favourites and although the main course of lamb was a little too salty for our palates, we felt the food was of exceptional quality and represented excellent value for money. The ingredients and cooking techniques showcased the chef's talents and prompted discussion whilst tasting each dish. We would most certainly go back and will recommend to fellow foodie fans.
