The Brig & Barrel

Draughthouse &​ Dining


We are a freehouse pub situated in the heart of the Historic Town of Belhaven right between the Famous Bridge to Nowhere and the 300 year old Belhaven Brewery.

Our aim is to provide the community and visitors to the area with a cosy, welcoming country pub that is family & dog friendly with a beer garden.


The current proprietors James & Sarah Hughes took on the property on the 1st of July 2018 and made the decision to renovate the premises prior to opening. After a huge project we opened the doors on the 22nd May 2019 and 4 weeks later we opened our kitchen.  The project turned out to be far bigger than first anticipated and it took a bit longer to complete but we believe it has been worth the wait.  We had a great team working on the job and if we can have half as many laughs in the pub as we did creating it then we are going to have a good few laughs!

Here are some photos of the project from start to finish.
