A welcoming fire greets you in the Bruce Arms with a smile from the staff. Only had a drink here but would pop in again for a pint

We stay in Masham a number of times a year, and on a rainy cold Saturday evening around 7pm decided to eat here. Place felt as tho it was trapped in the 70's, no cosy feel, staff were welcoming - but spent more time telling us what food they didn't have available! I chose lasagne, which came in its own... More
