Well worth a visit! Mr Hanburys is a quintessentially English country pub in a beautiful setting with its thatched roof, veggie patch and gorgeous countryside. On entering it has a very different feel - Quirky, unique and completely individual, the Masons certainly has its own wonderful sense of style - a mix of fantastic art work against William Morris wallpaper, gorgeous antique, industrial furniture and plush luxurious furnishings. The pub feels comfortable and stylish, the restaurant ties in perfectly though feeling more dramatic and intima...

We had heard that the Masons Arms had re-opened. We took a walk out there for Lunch. Very warm welcome. Nice selection of beer with a couple of real ales and some craft beer on tap. Fabulous food, both had the ploughman's, which was of superb quality. Weren't going to have a dessert until we saw the menu and wow! Not sure where their pastry chef has come from, but the chocolate mousse was divine. Sensible prices given the service and the quality of the food. It is really great to see a proper pub back in South Leigh. They deserve to do well. Hi...

Amazing overnight stay with dinner My wife had an overnight stay and meal here for her 30th birthday and I have to say we were both very impressed on all fronts from location, accommodation, service and of course food. The first thing that hits you is how beautiful the building is with its thatched roof and beautiful surroundings. Inside is just as beautiful and is defiantly a one of a kind place with fascinating and unique artworks throughout and into the more intimate and relaxed restaurant area. The bar has a great choice of beers...

Certainly worth the run up from London. Lovely setting just off the A40 this thatched country pub serves great (beautifully cooked) pub food and is decorated with original art work.

Tremendous to see the Mason Arms open again with a fantastic chef Our second visit to the newly opened Hanbury Mason Arms. Had the pigeon on our first visit and the salmon this evening. Both outstanding Michelin standard dishes in my view. Service first class, really welcoming. The combination of traditional pub with a quricky modern twist shows real imagination. We will be back next week.

Sunday lunching... the all new Hanbury Mason Arms; The answer to the prayers of West Oxfordshire. Superb setting, and a massive refurb that clearly wasn't done on the cheap. Not sure where they found their chef, or how they got to him before Gordon Ramsay. VERY accomplished cooking. My starter of Crab with bisque was so good I had to ask for another one. Deliciously understated, and oh such delicate flavours. Main course was chicken.. perhaps overly generous portion size. Less is more in this case. But cooked to perfection. Precision. Tasty a...
