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.
