“Greatly improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We had a meal in the conservatory part of the pub, which now has an open log burner , which has improved the atmosphere.The food and service was excellent.We used to eat at this pub, but over the years it changed hands many times and the standards slipped.Now under the lasted owners the service and quality of food has improved to the once high standards of the past.We liked it that much we have booked for New Years Eve.

“Excellent Fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Good beer and great food. New owners have improved the menu and given it a certain European flavour (Spanish).
2 courses for dinner £15-20/person
Scallops and chorizo my favourite.
Good pub atmospher as well.

“Much more than pub grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We dropped in on spec at the Masonic Arms while on holiday io the area and were very pleasantly surprised.Open fires and a warm welcome met us at on an October Wednesday evening in Gatehouse of Fleet. A real pub with plenty of local drinkers, a quiz and good beer as well as restaurant standard food and friendly professional service. Dogs are allowed too.
