With regards to current events, we are following guidelines from the government and our local council. We have hand sanitising stations at the entrance to the building and throughout at various contact points. Our bedrooms are thoroughly deep cleaned and sanitised after each departure. Cleaning and sanitising of public areas are maintained throughout the day. Stools at the bar have been removed and we encourage table service only. Tables in the dining areas have been placed to respect social distancing. We ask that all meals are booked in advance to allow staff to prepare. Our staff are working extremely hard in these difficult circumstances to ensure the safety and well being of all and we ask patrons to respect others at this difficult time and assist our staff by following guidelines. **FURTHER UPDATE**
Due to recent local Northumberland Lockdown restrictions, we must close the pub at 10pm, last orders at the bar for drinks is 9.30pm, and we will finish serving meals at 8pm. Sorry for any inconvenience
We pride ourselves in trying to make your stay with us as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We are a family run business, not part of a commercial chain and we treat our patrons as friends rather than customers. We maintain the antiquity of the building, we don't have juke boxes or gaming machines, but we do have darts, dominos and "the bull ring", all to be enjoyed beside our open coal fire. The combination of our locals, visitors and fishermen can give you a feeling of how things used to be back in the day! There is never a shortage of stories to be told, or jokes to be made.
With the river Tweed just a stones throw away, it is ideal for river walks, and nestles on the edge of the Scottish Borders we are in a prime location for exploring the local area, including our own historic castle. Fishing is a popular past time and we have worldwide visitors using the Masons Arms as a base.
Whatever your reason for visiting, we are well positioned for just about anything within a half hour drive, from fishing on the Tweed, to exploring the rugged Cheviots! We are also located just over an hour drive from Edinburgh or Newcastle if you wish to travel further afield.
