Always a great experience at Mason's. The food was lovely, the service is always above and beyond. Felt very safe in the restaurant with all the Covid changes in place. Especially loved the way the menu's had been done, nice touch even due to the fact its done because of Covid.

We have never been disappointed with anything at Mason's. This time the hake/haddock was slightly over-cooked but not spoilt. The service was friendly and engaged.

I normally go to Hawksmoor but couldn't get a table but very pleased to have found Masons!

Food very average. Think the chef likes to put plenty of salt on everything. More like pub grub and very overpriced. Service was good but wouldn’t go back .

Lovely dining room, service ok. Food didnt live up to menu or price tag. Could be great, but not fish overcooked, some dishes unbalanced.
Poor wine list but reasonably priced.

We love this place! Although regular diners at Masons, we enjoyed our first Sunday lunch there and it was delicious. The staff really look after you and are friendly. The building and surroundings are beautiful. What more can anyone ask for! It has become our favourite place to dine in Manchester and there's some stiff competition so that's saying a lot.

We had a lovely lunch at Masons . The halibut we had was just a touch overcooked but overall the food was very good . The restaurant have taken lots of measures to ensure staff and customers are protected from the virus and we felt very safe and well looked after .

It was a really amazing meal, lovely touch with the free glass of wine for my birthday. I was slightly disappointed that some items were unavailable but it's not a big deal, everything I ate was incredible!

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.

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!
