“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Been to the Masons twice in the last two weeks. First was for a large family get-to-gether, and second with my two sons. On both occasions the food was really good, and the service just exceptional. Very reasonable prices and a discount for OAP. There is another option to make your meal a 'large', or add additional vegetables......didn't need the extra veg, the side plate was great, It included cauliflower cheese...my fave. Well recommended, and must say the people who served us were just the best, so attentive....nothing was a bother.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

I come here often and can't fault the food! It's always freshly made and hot when it comes!

The masons meringue is lovely made fresh with lots of fruit And cream!

I've never had any problems here! The staff cant do enough for you. Really nice pub and such a friendly welcome! Don't listen to the bad reviews there not a true reflection on the pub.

“Great bar too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

I used to live local so ate here twice a week. I also drank in there 3 times a week. The food was excellent. The problem was the price of food and a pint of lager going up all the time. At the last visit it was £3.20 a pint and the curry night was around £10 with a free pint?!

“Ignore bad reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

The Original Masons is one of the North East's hidden gems. I have eaten here so many times and never had a bad meal or service. I have very high standards when I come to eating out but this public house has better food than 90% of restaurants I've eaten in, in the North East. The meat is of the highest quality and always cooked to perfection. The hot beef baguette is my wives favourite and is an absolute bargain for the portion size. The landlord is Australian but don't hold that against him ha ha, as he provides a warm and welcoming Pub and the lager always seems to get me drunker than anywhere else. Give The Original Masons a try any time Day or night and I know you won't be disappointed.
