REVIEWS OF Freemasons Arms

Laura Kantzler (20 July 2006)

I ate at the Freemasons a week ago, and had a marvellous meal. The food was outstanding; I ordered mussels and my boyfriend ordered pork loin. He inquired after the pork loin to see how it would be prepared. He wanted to ensure it would arrive pink, not overcooked. His pork loin was succulent, perfectly pink all the way around. Outstanding. The best piece of meat in an English restaurant we've had by far. I ordered the mussels, and was rewarded by a heaping plateful of the most plump succulent mussels I've had...with no closed shells mind you. Portions of this excellent fare were quite enough to satisfy us, and we have healthy appetites. The baked camembert starter listed for 2 could have satisfied 4. Very pleasantly surprised by this excellent pub.

Hayley Merrick (30 May 2006)

A good pub if you're just nipping in for a drink on an evening or Sunday afternoon, but very, very disappointed with the food. Popped in last bank holiday Sunday and took our drinks outside into the very big garden (filled with children, so if that's not your thing, then steer clear!), before deciding that we'd very much like something to eat. The guy booking the lunches was very accommodating and told us that we could have a table as we were 'very polite', before informing us he'd turned someone away 'because they were very rude and impolite' (not sure what the manager would say about that). Anyway, the menu looked fairly promising and we'd made our choice before being handed a 'specials' menu five minutes later, which listed the Sunday lunch choices. Bearing in mind we hadn't even been asked what we'd like to drink at this point, this was a little bit topsy turvey. We chose the roast lamb and for £12 we expected a plate piled high with rather luscious, juicy meat tons of roasties, summer seasonal veg, rich gravy… we were so very wrong! At our table arrived a plate of very (and I mean very) fatty lamb, with two soft potato wedges on top, with a watery 'Bisto'-coloured gravy and a small bowl of wintery veg: roasted, withered parsnips, carrots and swede anyone? No, didn't think so. We then ordered some greens with summer peas, which wasn't even enough for a small child; the peas were withered (a theme), the greens consisted of the shredded inside of a very cheap cabbage and the bowl was finished in a mouthful (all for £3!). It was awful... and for £12!!!!! The Flask in Highgate serves an outstanding Sunday lunch for £9, which blows this 'effort' away. They almost redeemed themselves with a berry crumble and ginger ice cream, which we shared, not wanting to order two puds just in case they were awful. I have to say the pub itself is impressive, but for pity's sake, please sort out your chef... Risk it at your peril!
