About the Pub

Just a couple of minutes walk from Belhaven brewery, the former Masons Arms is a bright comfortable bar overlooking the superb beer garden with views to the distant Lammermuir Hills.

Reopened, completely refurbished and expanded in 2019 it features a small horseshoe bar attractively finished with reclaimed wood and barrels, a smart wooden floor and is warmed by a real fire in winter.

Meals are served all day and booking is advisable at busy times.

A good base for walking round Belhaven Bay and Seafield Pond.
