Although I fear they will put their prices back up now people are going there again, the 3-course meal I had just before Xmas for (I think) 11 quid was excellent and great value, with really friendly service and nice atmosphere. I liked the fact that there was a real range of age groups among diners. Recommended!

I relaly like this place for a cheeky pint on the way home form work...particularly in summer having stood on a packed commuter train from central London...The staff are friendly and they do a nice German beer on draft. The menu board often advertises good value meals although i have not tried it for food.

Living in Ladywell this is the obvious place for me to go. They do very nice food and their range of beer is excellent. The food is good value too. Highly recommended.

Our family are fans.

The atmosphere (as others have said) is great, and they've been good with the kids whenever we've taken them.

The food has been a bit variable over the years, but seems to be back on the up which is good news.

The on tap beer, a lovely wheat beer, is very drinkable, and the wine isn't bad either.

If you're going on the weekend it pays to book (as we've learnt to our cost).

Yes, it is a good friendly place - when I went, the range of beer and wine on offer was good but the lunch menu was a bit limited but sounds like that has recently changed.

By coincidence, I went there last night. The food was pretty good (and good value) but not great (highlight: fantastic dauphinois potatoes and a delicious mango yorkshire, which accompanied an ok pork loin). The service was extremely friendly (if a little scatty). The atmosphere was really nice, buzzy but laid-back, with a good mix of people. The draft wheat beer is great, the bottled beer selection is excellent, and there's a good wine list. Renewing my recommendation.

We went to this place in the first week that we arrived in 'The Brock' - and the food was dreadful. So much so that when the waitress asked us how we found the meal I told her to tell the chef not to give up his day job.

She went and did this! When asked what his response was she said: 'He laughed'. We left and never went back. However, reading what you write here, we shall give it another go.

The recent changes in management have been very noticeable. This axiomatically so, when a customer dares to complain. The rsident Chef Marcus, thinks he is some under ranking Gordon Ramsay, rather than listen to constructive feedback, you get barred!

Given UHL (University Hospital, Lewisham) has been a supportive and very loyal crowd of customers, I believe this recent change is for thw worst,watch the space Ladywell.

I went a few weeks ago and had a great meal. I think they deserve support at the moment as they got shafted by their electricity supplier very recently and are massively out of pocket.

I think Mason's is good value for money. I would prefer it if they increased their prices and perhaps did a little bit more exciting with the veg-it's usually just boiled.
The brunch menu could be improved-eggs benedict anyone?
The new owners are having a real go at improving their business and good luck to them. It takes time but I hope it works out.

Massons has a sign outside saying closed for refurbishment. The sign has been up for a couple of weeks. Also, the pone appears to be disconnected. I fear it might have closed down - which is a great shame
