The Bruce Arms pub sits to the north side of the historic market square in Masham, North Yorkshire, offering real ales and a selection of spirits, lagers and wines along with homemade food.Our huge beer garden has a spectacular outlook over the River Ure and Lower Wensleydale, that’s why we call the Bruce Arms ‘the pub with a view’!We also have a children’s play area within the beer garden, while parts of it can be hired for free for outdoor events such as music concerts, theatre and dance shows.

Great little pub tucked away just off the town square in Masham. A lovely, cosy atmosphere and fabulous pub food served with a smile. A pub like they used to be!

Warmly Welcomed by the staff even in our muddy boots and with the dog. Lovely, plentiful food that was enjoyed by the 5 adults and 5 children. Good, honest pub food.
