Fabulous visit to this venue. We were unsure of choices but the lovely young Lady that served us was on hand to guide and advise us. She was absolutely spot on with her guidance. The food was delicious, so fresh and tasty and a fantastic choice, some dishes I have never tried before. Particular favorite was the goats cheese & honey. Atmosphere was amazing and such a mixed group of people! Fabulous, will definitely be returning.

The food and service were faultless. I was a little concerned that the restaurant would be quiet as we had a booking for 6pm, but I was pleased to see it bustling. We will definitely be returning.

About the restaurant
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. Just as the Masons’ name references the building’s unique history, the food at Masons is the Best of British with a modern twist.

Great service in an empty restaurant ( our fault eating at an odd time - 16:30). Starters were fine but my skate was overcooked and cold? My friends lamb was cooked perfectly. Desert didn't appeal. Wine list and bar service good,
