We stayed in Gatehouse of Fleet for 3 nights and ate at the Masonic Arms each night. The atmosphere is very relaxed and homely. On the second night a group of locals came in to sing folk songs and play instruments, this made our night, they were all very friendly and included our party in to their night. The best... More

We visited for lunch on the 3rd of Jan when not much else was open in the village. The waitresses were very welcoming and we were allowed our two dogs in to join us. Food was reasonably priced, tasted great and the whole experience was very pleasant. They had not bad veggie options too. We had a starter each and... More

The food was delicious and in a lovely setting and the pub itself is busy with locals and with live music on Thursday nights. We loved... More

The Masonic is a very warm and friendly pub restaurant with some good quality food. Visited with two friends and we really enjoyed the meal which was reasonably priced. There was also a really good choice. The only let down for me was the poor quality of the two real ales. However, my friends enjoyed some well priced wine. Overall... More

Popped in here for a heat and a glass of wine. If I'd been staying longer, I'd have checked out the menu too.

Another visit to The Masonic on the first night of another week in Gatehouse. Started with the smoked duck salad which was very good. Without consulting the menu I knew by the taste that the duck came from The Galloway Smokehouse, a great smokery and well worth a visit if you are in Southwest Scotland. This I followed with a...

The food here was very nice but a little on the expensive side and the portion sizes were a bit small. The staff were friendly and welcoming Dogs are allowed in the bar area only. Would recommend
