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!

We have 4 ales regularly available, namely Odcombe No.1 at 4% abv, Odcombe Spring at 4.1% abv, Roly Poly at 4.2% abv and Drewers Broop at 4.3% We also have 2 seasonal ales, Winters Tail at 4.3% abv and Half Jack at 3.8% abv.

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.

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.

My second home!

I stay at the masons arms several times a year on the campsite. Facilities are great and very dog friendly. Paula is a dog trainer so I’m able to have a proper dog holiday and squeeze some training aswell. The food in the pub is amazing and I have been known to eat breakfast, lunch and tea in there!
