Sunday Lunch with the wife …
Been to a few places in Manchester for Sunday Lunch and although rather quiet inside with only a few tables occupied the food and cocktails were of a high standard and would certainly visit again

Lovely starter and excellent roast dinner, the beef was so tender, only let down was the sticky pudding was nearly as cold as the ice-cream.

Getting a table at Masons on a Saturday night is hard. You have to book at least a month in advance but the wait is worth it.

The food is delicious and there's plenty of it. The service is fast and friendly and the ambience is pleasant. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Masons- our first visit was successful. We were quickly seated and offered drinks. The menu choices included a fish main and a cheese pie, roast beef or chicken.
We enjoyed the antipasti which was a good portion of interesting cheeses, slices of Parma type ham, salamis olives etc.
The roast sirloin wasn’t quite pink, a little overdone and sliced with the grain so required a little chewing but was tasty. There were mixed vegetables and Yorkshire pudding roast and mashed potatoes and gravy. We were offered additional sauces and chose mustard and horseradish which arrived swiftly and nicely presented.

We were quite full so had to share a sticky toffee pudding.
Our time at the restaurant was pleasant, relaxing and the staff were helpful and efficient.

This was my second visit. I ordered the Sunday set lunch menu again. The soup was delicious the first time. Second time it was still lovely, although it wasn’t courgette soup as it stated on the menu.

I ordered roast beef again. I have to say it wasn’t as good as my first visit (which was outstanding). I prefer my beef pink in the middle and this time was a bit more well done. I also thought one roast potato was a tad stingy but shared with my partner who had been served six. They were much busier today and perhaps this was an oversight.

All in all I would return, even though yesterday’s visit was not as good as my first. The staff are so attentive and lovely and the restaurant is stunning.
