our story


Masons Yard 24 is owned by Pipers Pubs Ltd which was formed in 1996. We are a small independent pub company who wanted to bring the Masons building back to its wonderful original street appearance of how it looked in 1826 whilst also enhancing the full potential of the building. We have focused on true quality traditional craftsmanship in restoring Mason which took over two years. In 2017 we were presented with a Design Award for the building by Kendal Civic Society.

Since we opened in December 2016, we have gained an excellent reputation for our local range of cask beers and have won CAMRA 2018 Westmorland Pub of the Year.

Masons Yard 24 has an exceptional name for food and our local unique and very popular menu is well known for its high-quality dishes sourced from local Lakeland specialist suppliers.


The Masons yard 24 is a very historic building which dates back to 1826. It is unusual in that it doesn't have a front door. Access is gained down the yard to the side.  The building was in a state of disrepair when it was purchased in 2014, having been left derelict for a number of years. The renovations have been done with a great amount of care and sensitivity to bring the building back to life, whilst making the most of its existing features.
