Description: 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.

“Pub could do with a good clean.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Visited this pub on a number of occasions in September it was o/k and when I saw that they has scored 5 stars for their kitchen being clean, I decided it would probably be o/k to eat there. I have to say that I ordered a Balti and the food was very good. After I had finished my dinner my wife kindly brought to the mess on the floor under the tables, it was pretty bad. I am still alive but I will not be going back to the Bruce Arms.

“A Bar in Masham”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

What a pity that this once vibrant pub is not moving with the times. A beautiful garden with great views and a perfect setting. What a pity that the Indian food is no longer available and that the staff have not moved into the 20th Century. Yes . In order to make a living one must realise that visitors have to be catered for. No good relying on locals all the time. Nonetheless it was clean and there was a bit of banter.
