We are located on the ground floor of Manchester Hall – the former Freemasons Hall – and you’ll notice a few nods to the building’s past in our interiors. Our restaurant boasts a multitude of different dining settings under one roof, catering for a plethora of requirements – from lunch meetings, entertaining clients or enjoying a romantic evening meal. A Freemasons-inspired booth can be booked for private dining. With a full coffee barista service and extensive whiskey and gin menu, Masons is perfect both for work lunches and meetings during the day, as well as being the ideal place to unwind after a stressful day in the office. Just as the Masons’ name references the building’s unique history, the food at Masons is the Best of British with a modern twist.

Was first dining experience here and we chose the steak and guinea fowl. The guinea fowl was just a small leg about the size of a drumstick so I had to share the steak which wasn't a problem. However the service was very poor there were only two people serving with not many diners which should have been sufficient although when we asked for the bill the Manager was too busy showing another table the extensive gin trolley which was taking ages and the young girl needed him to authorise the bill before she could produce it. We waited and waited.... in the end I wasn't willing to wait any longer so left and went back to the hotel and left my husband to sort it out.

It was our first visit and couldn’t fault it. There was a limited choice because of Covid, but everything we had was very good. This included our drinks and service.
Overall a very pleasant evening and we will be returning.

An enjoyable evening from the welcome at the door to the service at the table. The food was excellent and not too fussy just the right amount of presentation. A fantastic atmosphere for a celebration or a relaxing evening will definitely be returning.

We had a lovely family meal. The kids meals were fantastic, they were not as our kids were expecting, real fish with skin on opposed to battered fingers that they are more used to and fries were flavoured with garlic. However my children loved it and made me realise that they are open to new flavours, maybe its me that is dumbing down meal time opposed to challenging them to try new things!
Well done Masons!

Good, quick service. Asked if happy, the main wasn’t as warm as would have liked. So they rectified this and gave us the wine “On The house”. Loved the Gin Trolley

First time dining in Mason’s proved to be a very enjoyable experience. All the staff were complying with all COVID-19 measures whilst making sure we were well entertained throughout. Although a reduced menu, the food was very well presented, excellent cuisine every course. Our choice of wine accompanied the food well and the cocktails threw in some additional suprises to finish the evening. Definitely somewhere to return to in the future.
