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 team recreate classic bistro dishes using fresh local ingredients in a vibrant dining environment. Masons is perfect both for work lunches and meetings during the day, as well as being the ideal place to unwind. Just as the Masons’ name references the building’s unique history, the food at Masons is the Best of British with a modern twist.

    We have been coming to Masons for the last few years and are always so impressed. Beautiful restaurant and staff are always so friendly. The January 50% off food offer just makes it even more of a reason to come. It was a group of 5 of us this time and we got to sit in a booth. Thank you, see you again soon!

    We were a party of 3 and all enjoyed the restaurant, food and service was great standard, even splashed on a birthday bottle of champagne. We have to say it was the January 50% offer off food but we decided we will go again soon.

    Brilliant Sunday Lunch, great food and value for money. Service was excellent and when the bar person dropped a glass near my husband everyone checked he was okay. Roast beef lovely, Yorkshire Pudding better than mine. Will definitely go back.

    All three courses of my meal were outstanding. The Popcorn Prawns, Fillet Steak and Baked Alaska all scored 11 out of 10. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The January 50% off food offer makes this a bargain meal. This is a ‘must try’ restaurant!

    Overall it was excellent but I would have appreciated being able to chose if I wanted to tip or not rather than it just being added to the bill. The waiter wasn't great so I would have tipped less given the choice. I overheard him and another member of staff talking in a different language about one of the other customers. You cannot always assume that English people don't speak another language when being rude about them.

    A beautiful restaurant with a wonderful ambience. Was quiet when we arrived but did get busier as we were leaving. The staff were fantastic and catered to our every need. I did feel my food could have been slightly warmer when it arrived however it was truly delicious.

    First time visit to Masons there was 50% off food it being first week in January, so ideal time to sample their food, the surrounds were very pleasent and nicely spaced out. The menu small but covered the essentials, with chateaubriand at the high end, the food we chose was delicious. Can`t recommend Mason`s enough, we`ll be back.

    We booked Mason’s last minute for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. I have always wanted to visit the Mason’s building and I loved the ambience here. It is a beautiful building and the restaurant has a nice buzzy vibe. Service was a little slow but that suited us as we don’t like to rush through dinner. The food was good and decent portions as well.

    Food was poor to be honest. I ordered ribeye stake: - Beef taste wasn’t good - peppercorn sauce was extremely salty - the order literally took an hour Bruschetta was good Kids grilled chicken was plain but ok sticky toffee pudding is a big no It looks like the kitchen couldn’t handle a NYE big crowd Massively understand staffed Not worth the £100 for an adult and child

    Excellent food, excellent service, excellent settings. I had a duck breast dish which was cooked exactly to my liking. The food is high quality at very reasonable prices. The place itself is very welcoming with a high end feel to it. Staff were excellent and the service was spot on. I will definitely be making a return visit. This place deserves more recognition that it currently gets
