Review on Masonic Arms

The local Masonic Lodge continued to meet at this nineteenth-century pub just off the town square until the 1980s, but under its current licensees the place is now better known for its food. The inn has three distinct dining areas – a cosy beamed bar, a contemporary restaurant with its wooden floor and high-backed leather chairs, and a Mediterranean-style conservatory.

The long menu has its share of 'pub grub' (Galloway scampi, fish and chips, chicken curry) alongside renowned Galloway steaks, salads and more upbeat dishes such as goats' cheese and roasted beetroot with marinated walnuts, smoked haddock rarebit on creamed leeks, and seared medallions of pork with black pudding, honey and mustard jus. To finish, perhaps chocolate and gingerbread pudding with honeycomb ice cream.

The Masonic Arms also receives plaudits for its excellent stock of well-kept real ales including Masonic Boom (brewed exclusively for the pub by Sulwath Brewers in Castle Douglas). Wine buffs are also well looked after, with plenty of decent drinking by the glass.
