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, 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.

Over the years we have lovingly developed the business and we are still making plans for further additions. Most recently we have opened a wood fired pizza oven and now offer stone baked artisan pizza both in the pub or to take away Thursday to Sunday and fish and chips as a takeaway service daily.

Pizza oven is open Thursday and  Fridays 5pm-9.30pm, Saturday 12pm-9.30pm, and Sundays 5pm-9pm.

Call 01935 862591 to order or pop in for a drink and order at the bar or the hatch!

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.

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

Unexpected delight

We were staying at the pub campsite and decided to have a meal there despite not feeling inspired by the menu. We were very glad we did. The food was very good, freshly prepared and sensible portion sizes. We even managed to fit in a desert ( a wonderfully light rhubarb Eton mess). The beer is home brewed and excellent. Being a hot summers day I really enjoyed the Half Jack, a real thirst quencher

Inside it is fully equipped with washroom, table and chairs, TV, underfloor heating and log burner.

Quiz Night

Sunday 8th March 2020

Our quiz master, Chris, sets a great mix of questions and the format is a big hit with lots of variety to test your knowledge bank. Cash prizes for the successful team, lucky dip and with £1 for every person playing going to a nominated charity, what's not to like about that?

Our nominated charity this month is Yeovil Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service

YFW Blood Bikes is run by Yeovil Freewheelers (EVS), an Emergency Volunteer Service which supports Yeovil District Hospital, Dorset County Hospital and the community hospitals across our region by providing emergency courier services for blood, platelets, blood and tissue samples, medication, breast milk, documents, X rays, CT scans and equipment. We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, probably saving the NHS over £200,000 a year while easing patients' suffering and helping to save lives. We are the oldest surviving blood bike group in the country, the two earlier groups having been forced to close through lack of funds some time ago. Last year we made over 1,800 urgent and emergency deliveries to hospitals, hospices, and nursing homes as well as private addresses across much of Somerset and all of Dorset.

Chris was recently a successful player on The Chase and will be a regular host of our popular Sunday evening quizzes. Teams of between 2 and 6 people, cost is £3 per person with £1 of this going to various local charities, please feel free to suggest a local cause if you have one you would like us to support.
