I noticed that this pub has not been reviewed for the best part of 5 years so though I would stick my fifty pence worth in.

Visited this pub on Friday afternoon with a workmate after a meeting finished and arrived around 4pm. The pub was actually fairly busy at this time and had a mix of parents with school age children and regular punters who looked they were just out for an early start to the night.

The have an area to the front of the pub with outdoor tables which we were lucky to get one of them. It is not the most peaceful of pub gardens but it was nice to be outside watching the hustle and bustle of Battersea Park Road.

Pub was smart inside a fairly gastro-ish. You could tell as there is a table near the bar with a big bowl of olives and a loaf of bread with oils and balsamic vinegar next to it. The way this is sat there, lends the impression that it is complimentary but I am sure when push comes to shove, it you did want some you would be charged (handsomely) for it.

Pub is decent enough but prices are horrific even for this 'up and coming' 'trendy' part of town. There were only a couple of ales on none of which I really fancied and also because of the hot weather I went for a lager. Now I noticed from long distance past review's the pub used to stock Kronenberg. Not anymore as all lagers were fancy 'foreign imports' or 'craft's ' which meant the pub pretty much has a license to print money as if anyone was to question the extortionate prices, they can (attempt to) justify them with the fact you are getting a premium product!

All in all, the place is nice enough and apart from price the only one real gripe I had is the corridor near the toilets downstairs didn't smell too fresh which is not a good look for a food orientated place.

I would probably return for a couple if I am ever in the area again...

How silly of me to hand over �10 in the mistaken belief it would pay for 2 drinks. A pint of Kronenburg and a large glass of white wine �10.80? The Kronenberg was �4.15/pt. I'll leave you to do the maths for the white wine.

Walk 10 mins down the road and a Kronenburg drops down to �3.50/pt. Head down to Le Pot Lyonnais and it drops to �3.25.

Nice pub it maybe but it's not THAT nice. The prices are a joke.

These are austere times apparently. I'll be taking my hard earned cash elsewhere.

This a warm and friendly pub that allows dogs too.
They also have free web access for clients.

My wife and I have frequented The Masons Arms over the years and have seen a number of staff changes (good and bad!), but in recent times this great pub has really improved and is well worth a visit (and we do often now!). Since Matt, the Manager has taken over in recent months, and the head Chef (who's name I have forgotten- David?) The place has really taken on a real warmth and relaxing vibe. The staff, friendly old faces and great new ones, provide unpretentious yet professional service, and the food is consistently delicious! The change of artwork on the walls is a refreshing change too(Battersea Power Station on Rubiks Cubes!!!). I am a fan of beerintheevening, but never been compelled to write a review, but after noticing the unusual review from alaric, am compelled to give big thumbs up to this ever improving great boozer, with great food. So unless you like sitting on strangers tables and drinking there wine, I can reccommend this good gastro pub in Battersea.

Rude staff = poor management. Well this pub really needs to decide if it is a pub or a restaurant. My lady wife, I and an old friend went in for a drink at 1420hrs one Sunday recently. I understand of course that Sunday lunchtime is a really key time for family orientated gastro-pubs but....
we sat at the bar surrounded by empty tables with rserved signs and after a bit moved to a small and very exposed table in the middle of the pub. A party at a larger table left so we moved there, but were told that it was taken by a party at the bar - OK - they had just arrived.
Later a barmaid told us that we could sit on the sofa (a detestable idea), so we moved to another recently vacated large table near there which had a half finished bottle of wine on the table (nothing else). My friend started to help himself to this when we were once again told that this was waiting for some diniers. So we told them that we would move when they arrived, - at which point she said that she thought that the owners of the wine had 'just gone out for a cigarette' and snatched the bottle away.
Reading this, we seem a bit difficult, but honestly, we weren't
