At The Masons Arms we create a warm and welcoming ambience just as a local village pub should be. Our dishes focus on modern pub dining at it's best, traditional dishes with a bit of flair! Our menu changes regularly with daily specials making the most of seasonal produce often using fruit, herbs and vegetables grown in our own garden. There is a lovely pub garden to sit in when the weather permits!
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 pizza to eat in or takeaway. Pizza oven is open Thursday and Fridays 5pm-9pm, Saturday and Sundays 12pm-9pm.
We also have a microbrewery on site producing 6 ales brewed by the husband of the team.
We are dog friendly, there are treats on the bar, water by the back door and an enclosed exercise area to let them run off lead.
Enjoy a visit to a quintessential English pub in a beautiful ham stone village.

First meal out since lockdown was lifted and we had a great experience at the Mason’s Arms. The staff were very accommodating with our toddler. The food was delicious, had the pork roast and asked for some apple sauce which tasted homemade, the burger, and fish and chips were also good. Ambiance in the garden was lovely and relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

Food took over an hour to come, only ordered dirty fries. Drink service was also slightly slower than expected as hard to get someone’s attention eventhough it wasn’t overly busy. Got cold waiting for food but food was good quality and came out on hot plate to keep it warm. Bit overpriced. Could offer blankets.

A lovely socially distanced lunch in the garden ‘round house’. Every table in the garden was full but it was quiet and we were served quickly and efficiently by smiling staff. The food was well cooked and presented - a lovely start to being ‘out’ again. Thank you 😊

First trip out for food since lockdown eased- fabulous to go back to the Masons Arms. Easy booking, great process on arrival- a one way system, hand gel, check in with the app, shown to table.
The usual Masons service throughout- great food and cider! Really safe place.

As always good food and service, lots of little extras on the table to make it a Xmas party. Shame the bar wasn't very full, so lacked a bit of atmosphere.

Masons Arms at Odcombe is a superb place to eat, drink and relax. Surroundings are lovely making for a great atmosphere. Service is prompt and friendly. Food is very good and plenty of it. They cater for vegans and I have always found something tasty to eat.

Sunday lunch at the Mason's Arms was a real treat, we all had roast dinner, beef, pork or turkey. All of the vegetables were delicious and the Yorkshire puddings were huge and really light. The sticky toffee pudding with a caramel sauce was the best that I have ever had. Six of us agreed that it was excellent.
