Cask ales at Freemasons Arms

We're passionate about great beer

We're a free house with a selection of real ales on tap and our bar staff always make sure that they’re kept in the best condition.

And if beer’s not your thing, we’ve got a plentifully stocked cellar full of carefully chosen wines, and a generous selection of spirits.

Timothy Taylor's

Timothy Taylor's

Timothy Taylor's brewery only uses the very finest of ingredients to deliver a consistent taste every time. Dubbed the drinker's favourite and having won more awards than any other beer, Timothy Taylor's Landlord is a classic pale ale with a complex taste of citrus and hoppy aroma.



Brewed in nearby Masham, Theakston Best Bitter is a full bodied dry beer with a complex taste from the combination of Target and Challenger hops and prime malting barley. A great session ale, the citrus notes also make Theakston Best Bitter a perfect accompaniment to your meal.

Pennine Brewing Co.
