A Warm Welcome From The Masons Arms

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We have been running the Masons Arms at Lower Odcombe since February 2005 when we rescued the village from a fate worse than death... the loss of their pub!

After a short closure to make the kitchens legal, replace the boiler, fix the wiring... etc etc we reopened on April 1st with so much support from the village that we ran out of beer! Their drinking and eating capacity has been unabated ever since and the pub has established itself as the heart of the village with New Years Eve parties, Quiz nights and Open Mic nights showcasing local talent all proving to be a great success.

Over the years we have lovingly developed the business and we are still making plans for further additions!

As well as brewing Ale in our microbrewery Drew often also makes other creations such as Rhubarb Gin, Summer Fruits Vodka and Winter Berry Brandy as well as Elderflower cordial. Often using fruit grown in our own garden.

We are dog friendly and welcome your pet in all public areas so they can join you for a drink or a meal. There are treats on the bar, water by the back door and an enclosed exercise area to let them run off lead. For the comfort of other dogs and guests we ask they are on lead at all other times.

Enjoy Dining At Its Best

We believe that a pub should always be a pub not a restaurant and we therefore offer traditional favourites such as Ham, Egg and Chips alongside an a la carte menu in an informal setting but with an emphasis on good hospitality and customer service. Our dishes focus on modern British cuisine and for an inland pub we have a strong reputation for fish which changes daily on our specials list. Our menu changes regularly through the year and we use as much seasonal produce as possible including fruit, herbs and vegetables grown in our own garden.

Lovely Meal

Had a stressful day but decided to call in the masons for dinner on the way home to be greeted by a lovely barman full of quick quips which was just what I needed along with a good house merlot , had moules and frites which was perfect and my partner had a pulled pork Pattie which was also very good x great service and a pleasure to meet a barman who is so happy in his job !
