Paula, Drew and all the team at The Masons Arms.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We have been running the Masons Arms at Lower Odcombe, Near Yeovil, Somerset 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.

Dogs Welcome

We welcome your doggy companions and they are allowed in all areas of the pub so they can join you for a drink or a meal, as well as all of our accommodation and campsite. There is a dedicated and fully enclosed exercise area but we ask that your dogs are kept on lead at all other times around the property for the comfort of other dogs and guests. There is a nightly charge of £10 for dogs staying in our rooms, Poppy Cottage and The Bolthole. This charge per night covers up to a maximum of 4 dogs per room, you will find the essentials provided such as dog beds and water bowls as well as a guide and maps so you can enjoy walking in our fabulous countryside. There is no charge for dogs staying in the campsite.

Enjoy Dining at its Best

Dining out should be an opportunity to unwind, relax and enjoy a delicious meal in a great atmosphere. From the moment you walk in and are welcomed by our friendly bar staff to the time you leave we aim to deliver the best service, a great ambience and lovingly prepared meals from our talented chefs using as much fresh and local produce as possible, some of which comes from our own vegetable garden and fruit trees. We want to exceed your expectations and ensure you wish to return again soon for another visit

Book a Table

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!

Camp in Beautiful Surroundings

Peacefully situated well away from the road overlooking open fields, 15 pitches, 8 with electrical hook ups and a large hard standing area allowing the site to be open all year. Our luxurious Shepherd's Hut has arrived. If you like camping but miss the comforts of home this is for you. Our hand built bespoke shepherds hut is perfect for either a romantic break or just a well-needed escape from the bustle of daily life. Inside it is fully equipped with washroom, table and chairs, TV, underfloor heating and log burner.
