Remember ‘proper’ pubs: cask ales, friendly staff, open fires? Well that’s us and more. Gill, Ian and John together with all our staff warmly welcome you to The Masons Arms, a Camra multi award winning Free House.
Our doors open at 2 pm weekdays and 12 noon on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday periods.
We have regular quiz and folk nights and other special events. Outside we have extended seating overlooking the Community Garden and fine views of rolling farmland. We think we’ve discovered Billinge’s best suntrap with its own micro climate. We also have an outside smoking shelter complete with wood burning stove - oh and a bison! Daily newspapers and even our own exchange library add to the relaxed atmosphere.
The Masons Arms is Billinge’s gateway to the splendid woodland walks through the Goyt Valley and Carr Mill Dam. Garswood, Crank, Kings Moss and Rainford are all within a few miles radius and ramblers and cyclists are always assured of a warm welcome. A full selection of cask ales, lagers, ciders, wines and hot drinks are always available. Please feel free to bring your own butties for outside eating. Even our canine friends enjoy the fires and readily offered water bowls. We are primarily an ale house true to our roots, so you won’t find lingering smells of fried food and vinegar. However we do cater for various parties by prior arrangement. Burchall’s local famous pork pies are available on Fridays but they are eagerly snapped up so be quick.
