Local Pubs

For a great local pub, you need look no further than our village of Gilcrux. A ten to fifteen minute walk rewards you with refreshing beers, great wines and fantastic food at the Masons Arms.

A day in the Lake District can be perfectly rounded off with a visit to this wonderful local pub.

The Masons Arms Country Inn, overlooks the village green, 4 miles from Cockermouth. Originating from centuries ago, the old reclaimed ships’ timbers are visible on the ceiling of this cosy pub. A warm welcome awaits you from Hal and Andy, indeed a large stone built fireplace and log burner also greets your arrival. On a solid oak bar is a selection of refreshing cask real ales, with other well known keg draught beers wines and spirits. There is a games room with darts and pool table.

This is a dog friendly pub too and are welcome to dine with you in a specified area. They are not permitted in the main lounge however.

All of  their meats are sourced locally from a traditional family butcher and the fish is caught straight from the Gilcrux Springs trout farm. Also catered for are vegetarians and gluten free meals can be ordered.

A torch is provided in the cottage for your use should you venture out for the evening. You may wish to pack a second one and some bright clothing too, especially if you chose to walk the lane rather than the bridleway back to your holiday cottage.
