Masonic Arms

At the Masonic Arms we offer a wide range of draught beer, wines, spirits and not to mention over 150 gins! We have a passion for serving quality gin and tonic, all our gins are served in a large balloon glass, filled with ice and served with a variety of fresh garnishes and whichever tonic compliments the selected gin. You may not be a gin drinker but you may leave simply converted! There is simply something for everyone!
