Located on the site of a former Mexican restaurant, we used to frequent, Mason & Taylor is a new pub from the team behind the award-winning Duke of Wellington in Dalston. It's one of the first of a new breed of "the beer is everything" pubs that we're seeing popping up around town. These pubs feature an extensive, frequently-changing, esoteric and well-kept range of beers (and ciders, usually), presented in a minimalist environment. And we like them - a lot. Unlike many of the beer-focused pubs of old, ones often favoured by CAMRA, these pubs are good all-rounders. In our experience, we sometimes find a few famous beer pubs were often lacking in the service department and not particularly pleasant places to linger, despite the excellent ales. Happily, Mason and Taylor is up there with the best. The beer menu is extensive, the quality is excellent - you can enjoy "tasting flights" and sample three or six ales in 1/3rd pint glasses. The food menu is an interesting range of modern British food - quails eggs, rabbit, ox tongue, served tapas-style (you can share a few plates) and the service is friendly, attentive and delivered to your table. Some may prefer more sumptuous surroundings in which to enjoy a tipple, however, we enjoy this new, more focused, no-nonsense approach - it seems more appropriate in these straitened times. We think Mason & Taylor team have another winner.
