 Knutsford Public Houses - The Freemasons Arms - by Matt Raw
The Freemasons Arms Knutsford

The Freemasons was closed and became the Samrab Thai Restaurant and Bar in 2006

The following article records life before its closure and has been retained for historical records only.

The Freemasons Arms is located in the town center, inbetween the indoor and outdoor markets. The building itself is Grade2 listed. The pub was taken over recently (3 months ago at the time of writing), and was refurbished. Turn left as you enter the pub and you will find a "tap" room. Stone floored, this room has a television which can be used to view most Football matches, should you so desire. Turning right as you enter the pub will take you through to the main bar and to the restaurant. The bar is well furnished and very.... well... ahem(!)... RED! The Freemasons Arms boasts one of the largest collections of REAL ALE in Knutsford. Theakstons, Bass and Worthingtons Bitter are normally always kept, however, I have it on good authority that the Landlord is keen to supply different ones from time to time. I have tasted all the beers and can verify that they are kept to the highest of standards.

Continue through the bar and you will find a room which acts as the restaurant during lunch, and as a "snug" at all other times. Again, this room is well furnished and has digital television. As a further point of interest, all these rooms have particularly large fireplaces.

As mentioned already, the pub has been refurbished and you can now stay in one of the five guest rooms. All the rooms have a washbasin, kettle etc. and are quite comfortable indeed. Stay for the night and you will find a Full English Breakfast waiting for you when you awake! Should you just wish to pop in for lunch, there is a well thought out menu which is available between 12noon and 2pm.

To conclude: A Good Traditional English Pub, Friendly Atmosphere, Excellent Beer, Great Food and Very Relaxing. It should be noted that this is not a family pub, and therefore, there a no baby changing facilities etc. Freemasons Arms tel: 01565-632368
