It's not good enough just to have excellent food, the wine list has to match the culinary experience. At The Masons Arms we have put together an extensive wine list and critically, at sensible prices. For the red wine lovers we can offer an extensive geographic range from classic Riojas to the excellent Villa Maria Pinot Noir from New Zealand.
We have a good selection of white and rose wines, the latter particularly suitable for garden dining during the summer, all beautifully chilled. We have also extended our selection of wines by the glass, offering a range from very drinkable Pinot Grigio through to Louis Jadot Macon Villages at the higher end. If it's a celebration, we have five champagnes or sparkling wines to offer.
We serve a number of ales and lagers on tap and also a have good selection of bottled beers and ciders. Our ales currently rotate between Jennings Cumberland Ale and Brakspear. Our standard lagers are Peroni and Carlsberg, and we also serve Thatcher's Gold cider on draught.
In addition, there is usually a good 'bin end' on special offer, advertised behind the bar.
A 3.4% APV superb traditional beer. Amber in colour with a good fruit, hop and malt nose. The initial taste of malt and the well hopped bitterness quickly dissolves into a predominantly bittersweet and fruity finish.
