A pretty beer garden at the back is perfect for al fresco dining in the warmer months and it has a thatched seating area with a heater and blankets for those chillier evenings. Due to covid we are only able to have 2 tables in this hut so please call if you would like to be inside the hut.

Wow the food was amazing, I now understand why they offer a smaller portion (still ate it all though!) a real friendly old school pub, lovely to see friendly welcoming people and also see so many well behaved dogs around! Will absolutely be going back!

We know the Mason's Arms well. It is one of our favourite local pubs for dining out. The ambience is lovely, a traditional English pub, with furniture, oak beams and decor that is welcoming and mellow. The food is always extremely good and value for money though the helpings can sometimes be on the over-generous side. We
can confidently recommend the Mason's Arms for a lovely relaxing dining experience.

Roast dinner was amazing and the portion very large! The brandy parfait was so refreshingly good, best pudding all Xmas! Well spaced and friendly staff. Great, can’t wait to visit again thank you! Lovely views at back too, great place to stay am sure!

A quiet gem of a country pub/ restaurant.
Ambience was convivial, food was excellent, especially the Tagliatelle and the service quick, friendly but unhurried.
Will book again

Two of us had good meals. Mine was very dry and not how it was described on the menu. Service was very good and when I mentioned the poor meal they didn’t charge for desert.

Great value for money. The chicken chasseur (from the specials menu) was tasty and hot in temperature ( not sure however it works well in the black bowel in which it was served. The tagliatelle however was found to be rather tepid and bland. The chocolate and seseme desert was awesome, although personally, we're glad we opted for +vanilla ice cream, which prevents a seseme overload! The brittle was a bit sticky! Excellent wine. Superb value for money overall. Wish the table candles had been lit, or removed!😏

Fish and chips overdone but edible. Forgot my veg, had to ask for it. No one asked us if we needed drinks when delivering food when both had empty glasses. Waiter stood outside kitchen texting on phone when tables needed clearing.

Food was very good, we had delicious nachos for a starter, and 2 types of burger for a main.

Only minus point was the cost of beer. It was £6.50 for Birra Morretti and around £5 for Amstel.

So overall 4/5, well worth going just order a coke or something if you don't want to get stung with drinks bill.
