His & Hers has a special fondness for all the rituals and magic of Christmas, that very much includes Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. Mason’s delivers on this festive feast in spades. The staff are fun, friendly, super-helpful, and really good at what they do, and want you to have the best time. And in our experience, that is exactly what happens. To be fair, they had me at the mention of bottomless, giant Yorkshire puddings, which encapsulate the spirit of Christmas.
WORDS: Jean Hill
We have sampled the Sunday roasts and they are awesome. Mason’s has created a Christmas menu, that’s perfect for family and groups of friends. For just £35 per person, groups will receive big sharer plates with all dishes included. Starters served are a quenelle of chicken liver pate, a shot of butternut squash soup each, mini bruschetta and sesame chicken bites. Guests can enjoy a champagne sorbet, before moving on to demolish the mains.
Main courses served include sliced beef topside, Mason’s homemade nut roast, cranberry and sage stuffed turkey with an array of trimmings. These include: cauliflower cheese, braised red cabbage, tender-stem broccoli, mangetout/green beans, maple glazed carrots, parsnips, roast potatoes, bottomless Yorkshire puddings and gravy.
And to finish, diners can indulge in a selection of desserts including Mason’s festive Eton mess, sticky toffee pudding, fruit salad, sorbet and a selection of cheeses and crackers (+£3). Drinks packages are also available for group table bookings. For those who want individual three course meals, Mason’s have a spectacular lunch and dinner menu available.
Our verdict: the butternut squash soup had a silky sheen with subtle flavour and a splashing of cream, complete with toasted rustic bread. The roast turkey was cooked to tender perfection, wrapped in crispy bacon and with a surprise stuffing filling. There was an extravagance of fresh green vegetables, glazed carrots, and cauliflower cheese. Because I got to chat with the chef I know that the cauliflower cheese is concocted in a painstaking process that includes incorporating several different cheeses, including Parmesan, all beautifully bubbly and gloriously crispy. The dessert of sticky toffee pudding had a lovely glazed finish and rich satisfying sultry flavour. All guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart.
Head of Sales and Marketing, Danny Claeys, said: “Mason’s is all about the sharing experience so what better way to come together over the festive period, and devour a selection of the restaurant’s delicious dishes.
“The Christmas sharing menu gives groups a chance to try all different things… and there’s unlimited Yorkshire puds! What more could you want!?”
