Tris C left this review about Masons Arms

Dating from the early 18th century, this was rebuilt in 1934 in some form of baronial Brewers’ Tudor.
The interior is also rather baronial, notably the polychromatic cornice depicting bunches of grapes and accompanying vine leaves. There’s a lot of wood panelling to three quarter height with a white Anaglypta ceiling. The floor is modern bare boarded with a tiled bar apron. The bar front is similarly panelled and the rear bar structure is also rather ornate, featuring an Art Nouveau etched and cut mirror; wood to the banquettes is quite refined too. Lighting is brass and glass lamps and sconces and moderate music played. Décor comes in the form of framed prints and hop bines.
Polite staff presided over two unused pumps, GK IPA, Abbot, something called Sandy’s Blonde (named after the pub’s inhouse hound!) and Neck Oil at £3.00 a half.
This is quite nice, but it’s got to get some beer on that appeals to the more discerning ale drinker, but it’s worth a punt if in the area.

An attractive Mock Tudor frontage. Long and narrow inside with wood floor and attractive coloured grapevine coving. Three quarter length wood panelling, which has had the old dark varnish inexpertly sanded away to much detriment all round. Three pumps, all Greene King; rebadged house grot, a Chris Kamara beer (WTF?!) and GK IPA. Out of desperation I went for the IPA which was bearable. Another one to file under ‘it exists to fill a void’ heading of Zone 1 pubs.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Masons Arms

Quite a nice looking pub, both inside and out, with the interior rather less gloomy than the black-painted faux-Tudor timber frontage might suggest due to the use of much lighter wood panelling. As a Greene King house, IPA, London Glory, Old Golden Hen, St Edmund's and the 'house' Maddox St best bitter (£4.05) were available from the five handpumps on this visit. Overall, quite a good spot to escape the nearby mayhem on Oxford Street / Regent Street.
