We were celebrating a very very special anniversary and were treated like royalty. All the staff were BRILLIANT! We can't thank Ritchie, Toni and everyone at Masons enough for their kindness and generosity and giving us a most memorable evening. James and Katharine

Lovely the staff were all lovely, especially the lovely young girl that was serving us, she went to the trouble of asking about the wine fir me and gave me a little taste as I’m a bit fussy with taste of red wine.food was nice and desert was amazing .

All round top notch Sunday lunch with the family. Earns 5 stats across the board for food, service and value. Couldn't believe there were empty tables but I'll assume that will change over time.

Think we should decide if we want to pay service charge. We wanted to til
Our lovely waitress but had a service charge of £10 that did not go to her so why do you have service charge if she doesn’t get it?

Overall it was ok. One glass had a crack from top to bottom but was rectified and new drink provided. Cheese and onion pie had collapsed and all cheese oozed out. That was sent back and rectified. I ordered a drink that didn't arrive. I did reorder and wasn't charged. All issues were dealt with but it was a 40th birthday celebration and it did take the edge off.
On the plus side the prawns and the moules were delicious.
Staff were friendly and attentive.

The restaurant is lovely & we had a really nice private table which was great for a date meal. The service was good but the main course food was a little disappointing. The mussels were a little dry but the cheese & onion pie was really not good for this level of restaurant. I wouldn’t return here due to the sub standard food.

Lovely atmosphere and decor is impeccable, the food was let down by the amount of salt that had been added. The mussells sauce was far too salty and the chicken dish was nice but again, chips were far too salted and also the salad had been salted?! Would still go again but maybe order something else and specify beforehand to not over-salt.

Set menu not available as advertised on here which was a shame. Staff were incredibly attentive. Nice selection of wine. Atmosphere is a little sad, music choice could be dramatically improved which I think would improve the ambiance and attract a lot more diners. No air conditioning so was really warm.

Our waitress was very attentive and we didn't have to wait long at all for anything. The food was better than we expected, and the value was reasonable. The music was a little too loud when the restaurant got busier, and sitting across from my partner, we had to raise our voices. But overall, it was a really nice experience.

The staff went above and beyond for my children even saying their fillet steak was not enough to justify the size of the plate so they made another one to accompany it free of charge. The food was out of this world and the restaurant itself was amazing.

Good food, great drinks, good ambiance and ok service if you get the right person. Slightly overpriced for what you get but not by much. £300, 4 people, 2 courses each with a good few drinks. Would recommend, will be back.

From the moment we arrived we were so happy with the service and safety of the restaurant , we had the 3 course Fathers Day Special Menu and everything we ate was so delicious and hot. One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time! And the Aperol Spritz were amazing! Thank you Masons Restaurant, we look forward to dining with you again in the future.
