Friendly pub with good quality pub grub presented in an attractive way. The chips are lovely and portion sizes are good. The decor is a bit dull and dated and it could do with freshening up but the service (I went on a Saturday) was really friendly so that and the chips made up for the dull atmosphere.

What more can you ask for when you're on a budget and wanting a friendly atmosphere? Maskery is the place to be in Congleton. The People's Pub!

When I reviewed this pub in May this year I said that it had deteriorated since last year; but over the summer it has brought itself back to its previous standard or perhaps to something even better - the deterioration seems to have been a short term glitch over two or three weeks in May - and I've eaten there...

Good quick service with reasonable priced drinks. Place is very much like the wetherspoon chain. Enjoyed a drink in here but some of the locals were quite foul and loud mouthed so moved on.

Visited The Maskery on a lunchtime for a quick bite to eat, and ordered off the Light Bite menu. Scampi, chips and peas for £2.99 superb value and terrific food!! Will definitely be popping in again.
