Masons restaurant bar
Really lovely place. Ambience, service and food all great. I had the best seafood linguine.
Fantastic food here. We had the lamb and the red snapper, both of which were cooked perfectly. The parmesan truffle chips should not be missed - they are quite epic. Lovely ambiance and attentive staff - highly recommended.
The service was outstanding! The setting is intimate and the food was lovely! Possibly a little over priced on the food in comparison to the wine and the cocktails.
Excellent meal for my husbands birthday, complimentary glass of prosecco too! the food was amazing, beautifully cooked and service was excellent, will definitely be back.
Outstanding service, food was amazing definitely will be back!
Went for a brunch business meeting and the ambience was perfect with noise levels quiet but not so you feel nervous having a conversation. Clean plates all around the table and attentive service. Nice coffee and reasonable price. Excellent.
Absolutely amazing meal and service was fantastic, great value for money and will definitely be going back!
Pre theatre meal with the missus. A very well presented small restaurant and bar with luxurious and comfortable interior and ambience. There is a definite attention to detail in the decor. Excellent service with good humour and witty comments to put you at ease. Pretentiousness can be left outside. Staff have the sixth sense of when to approach and when to leave you alone. The food was very good, but not mind blowing considering the price. The wine was the same and would have been smoother if left to breath for longer. Saying that there are much more expensive restaurants in Manchester that don't meet Mason's standards.
Staff excellent, food good but could do with a bigger menu, limited choice really
A fabulous place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon!
Lovely restaurant, the service was excellent and the staff were friendly and professional. Not quite the high end dining experience we were hoping for, but the food was very good quality and cooked well.
We received excellent service from Greg
Menu described PINK MEET (fillet steak). Asked for NOT PINK but medium. Arrived and was pink. Highlighted to waiter who said medium is pink. Returned to kitchen to be cooked further. Still pink. Highlighted to waiter but no solution given and just cleared plates.
Disappointed with no apology.
The beef Sunday roast is an absolute must, will definitely be raving about this to all who will listen, found our new restaurant. Well done The Masons
Fantastic service and outstanding food lovely building
One of my favourite places to dine and the lunch deal is outstanding value. As it was my birthday the guys also gave me a complimentary glass of bubbles. This was very much appreciated.
good services and good price with Manchester confidential app
we arrived early to enjoy cocktails but these were poor due to inexperienced staff, we had to ask for our table due to a miscommunication between staff, nobody offered to take our coats at the table, asked for water we didn’t receive. All small points but my expectation was higher. The food was good although my rare steak was blue.
Our favourite restaurant in Manchester, great food, service and staff,
Booked a table for 2 at 10.00. On arrival, our request to increase to 4 people was accommodated without a problem. Service by Greg was excellent. Food and overall experience was 1st class
Great service and setting. Food was nice but the starters we chose were a little sub-par for the money. Overall very good and I would definitely go back.
Superb food, location and ambience. Service was exception, and particular thanks to our waiter Tony. I can’t think of a better room to dine in. Right number of covers - not too many. Fabulous dining experience.
Read the reviews so thought we would give it a try. Have to say the restaurant is very smart and the service is very good. We thought the quality of the food was excellent albeit a tad expensive. It was a shame we caught it at a very quiet evening but we could imagine it being a much better ambience with more people there.
The restaurant was very quiet due to it being Sunday afternoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant itself had a nice ambience. The Sunday lunch menu had about four options for each course and was very reasonably priced (£16 for two courses or £19 for three). The portions were very generous and the food was excellent. We would definitely return.
Outstanding service and great food, we had a really good time.
The serving staff were lovely and it is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the meal and the overall experience. There were only a few negatives - it was a shame there were not enough menus, that there was a few items sold out at 7pm, and that neither the starters or main were served at the same time to all the dinners. And lastly it was may sons birthday and there was no mention of it, or occasion made of it despite mentioning it on booking.
Good food, great service, different to how I expected it to be, quite a small space but made for really good ambience. Would go again and recommend people to give it a try.
Came for a friend's birthday, food was nice but service was shocking.
1. Allergens menu was pretty shocking.
2. Run out of a main starter and it was only 6:30pm on a Saturday.
3. Speed of drinks was poor, usually 10/15mins - crazy when there are higher margins on drinks!
4. Some points drinks order was forgotten
5. Table behind us had a birthday and the restaurant made a fuss of the person. However made no acknowledgment of the person on our table, except to say happy birthday when we sat down.
6. Didn't bother offering us a dessert
7. Ended up just asking for the bill and leaving
Whilst some of the food was nice, the service received was absolutely shocking. We had restaurant owners and auditors with us and they couldn't belive how bad it was too but bit there lip from making a fuss.
Considering it was someone's birthday it made the experience we received worse.
Excellent food, great service and friendly welcoming atmosphere
Great place to eat. Staff very helpful. Food and atmosphere excellent. We will be returning.
Lovely Sunday dinner in a lovely setting.. very good value for money too and the food was delicious 😋
Lovely and great value Sunday lunch, service was warm and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.
The staff were fantastic, very welcoming. The roast chicken and the beef were both delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed on a Sunday afternoon and the waiter we had was a pleasure to talk to. I'd highly recommend this place for a Sunday roast. The two course option for £16 is great value!
Excellent fine-dining restaurant at very reasonable prices given the quality of the food. Exceptional service and a calm, convivial atmosphere in a beautiful, historic building. Menu a little limited with an emphasis on fish.
Masons had the August offer of 40% discount which after emailing they folled up with a phone call and advised that the restaurant manager would ring the next day. Nothing hapoened.
Also one of the main dishes ordered was the sea bass which was not filleted of bones and was inedible.
Overall a poor dining experince for the price paid.
My friends and I had a fantastic meal and experience here. The environment is interesting, service and food was excellent. Tony, our server, was fab, especially with the gin trolley - a charming experience.
The food was outstanding - we all had the fillet steak, but all cooked differently - and all exactly right. We added greens which was a good choice. We ordered the Argentinian Malbec which went well. The desserts were excellent as was the cheese. We had suitable ports/liquors and they too were spot on.
Super fun with the restaurant manager, cheeky, entertaining and informative.
All in all, excellent
Great good, fabulous service. I can't wait to go back.
Lovely place with relaxed atmosphere and great background music. Nice Masonic history touches.
We had a lovely relaxed breakfast with excellent service with no pressure. Will visit again and recommend to friends.
The service was second to none. The setting and atmosphere was lovely and they had a great selection of drinks, especially gin! The food was lovely and plentiful too.
