Had an half decent three course meal. Starter was a little cold but the rest of the meal was good. Would certainly revisit next time we are in Masham . Beer was very good

Just had a fantastic Sunday lunch with family and friends. Men had mixed grills and girls had roast beef. Both were spot on. Great that the kids menu is available on a Sunday..especially when you have fussy kids! The staff even sorted our son out with a toffee sundae even though it wasn't on the menu. That made our sons day! Other puds were lovely too, the lashings of custard with the apple pie is true! We would recommend this pub to anyone visiting Masham.

I don't want to go over too much details, however our family had a dreadful 3 night stay here 18 months ago. To be fair, the manager tried to sort it out and following complaints we were offered a further night free (not taken) and some vouchers by the Spirit Group.
Anyway, being in the area, we decided to try it out for a meal again, what a surprising change. I wasn't expecting too much being a chain, but the food was of a very high standard.
On our first visit, seeing as we'd had Fish and Chips for lunch in Bedale, we just went for a main. I had the Brewers Chicken and was delighted to find it tasty. My wife had the Cesar Salad which was fresh and filling. My young Daughter managed to completely finish the Rump Steak and trimmings and my son relished the Gammon. Good traditional Pub Grub, done well.
Seeing that they have a Thursday Steak Night, we decided to give them a further visit. This time we shared some bread, dips, Baked Camembert and olives to start. All fresh and tasty. And then onto Steaks all 'round, with a bottle of wine. All the Steaks were cooked perfectly, the garnish of Vine Tomatoes with Black Pepper gave it an above Chain Pub feel and the obligatory chips were triple cooked. A great improvement, many thanks

Not much to say about this restaurant really. The starters we had were fine but not memorable and the mains of lamb rump was reasonably tasty and rather tough. (As an aside it was a shame to discover that despite being in an area noted for sheep rearing the lamb was not locally sourced - a factor of the pub being centrally rather than locally owned perhaps.) All in all felt that we might have been better off choosing burgers or fish and chips.

Only had a drink here and to be honest one was enough. Lacked any atmosphere thought it was above itself. Better pubs in Masham
