Went to The Masons as near to our hotel in York and wasn't disappointed. We received a very friendly welcome and the food was delicious. My husband enjoyed rabbit pie with mash and veg, I enjoyed homemade lasagne and chunky chips and our daughter enjoyed her children's scampi & chips. The portions were very generous and all the food tasted...

We stayed her not long after it re- opened and it had just been refurbished. The rooms were quite spacious and warm, and the beds were very comfortable. They had coffee making facilities in the the room and toiletries in the showeroom. Only down fall was there were no hairdryers, however, they said they were going to supply hair dryers...

The Masons has been a pub we have eaten is for years and to be honest it had gone somewhat off before the flooding of Christmas 2015. Now under new management the best is back! The floods have meant a freshen up but the main event is back with traditional pub food and plenty of it

Not a great deal to review really!! Authentic out of city pub, with a clean, tidy & welcoming feel. A few people were in and dining (in the bar) and all seemed ok. Atmosphere was a bit off, but it was early on a Thursday evening. Bar staff could be a bit more engaging, but that's picking fine fault.

We had been let down by other accommodation in York (despite booking) and were extremely grateful that the Masons Arms came to our rescue. They had only just finished refurbishing the rooms after the flooding, so we were very lucky to get the opportunity to say. It is finished immaculately and is extremely comfortable. The staff are wonderful and so...

After months of closure due to the floods, Gary and Julie have made a welcome return to oversee the place, meaning that Julie's cooking is back on the menu. Huge portions, reasonable prices and an ever-changing menu coupled with friendly bar staff make this place a favourite when the owner's are in charge. As we live in York, I can't...

Me and my partner stayed here for a few nights with my parents, on a sight seeing trip to York. The staff are lovely and helpful. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. It doesn't serve breakfast, but the beautiful, home cooked evening meals make up for this! Would definitely recommend and return again.

I've just passed this by on a sunny Sunday lunchtime and it is closed. All the signs outside say ' open all day' and 'food all day' & 'riverside terrace - sounded great but doors locked with no opening times displayed anywhere.

As we have been a few times, we called in for a meal between the afternoon and evening session at the barbican. We said that the next time we were in we would make a start on trying there unusual offers. We decided on the Venison burger with chips and a side salad, chips (real home made) and salad were...

Nice, clean room and good food for a good price, but above all a very friendly and hospitable landlord. We had a very good time. Rooms are not very big but they are clean and comfortable. The food portions are generous and the quality is very good. They don't offer breakfast but there is a small but good breakfast cafe...

“The room we stayed in was at the side of the pub up the stairs and it was quiet, we didn't hear any noise both at night or the morning - the room was on the small side but it did what it needed to do for us and the main thing was that it was clean and within walking distance of the town. Great value”
