Traditional country thatched pub serving award winning meals. Open all year with AA 4 gold star rated groundfloor rooms, bespoke Shepherds Hut and certificated campsite overlooking open fields. Dog friendly with an enclosed exercise paddock, water bowl by the back door and treats on the bar!
A pretty beer garden at the back is perfect for al fresco dining in the warmer months and it has a thatched seating area with a heater and blankets for those chillier evenings. Due to covid we are only able to have 2 tables in this hut so please call if you would like to be inside the hut.
Surrounded by lovely Somerset countryside The Masons Arms is perfect for a quick pint or bite to eat, a full dining experience or a longer stay to explore the area. The welcome is always warm!

Really good food but service got a bit slow so we left sooner than we wanted as realised desserts would take too long. But can never fault the food and we will always go back. Lovely pub.

Excellent food and friendly staff. Tasty starters, and the aubergine cannelloni main course was inspired. The duck in a pastry packet was enhanced by a most accomplished and delicious sauce.

Sunday evening meal.
Would definitely go again if in the area.
Food was very good and staff were very friendly.
Meal service could have been faster but all in all a very good meal in pleasant surroundings.

Really pleasant evening at The Masons Arms meeting friends and having a meal. Good food accompanied by a nice ambiance - service just right not to quick or pushy. Only minor gripe was that when I made the booking I sent the link to the website menu to other members of my party who obviously read it and made their choices only to be given the “hard copy” menu in the pub and some of the dishes then weren’t on the pub menu which was disappointing as new choices had to be made.

Fantastic place to go.

The staff are all very friendly, well presented and upbeat. They clearly new their menus and what options were available.

The place was clean and tidy, and had a really cosy and relaxing vibe.

The menu was everything you could want from a pub with plenty of options.

The food only took 30 minutes to be brought to us, and was presented beautifully.

The quality, taste, portions and flavour of all the dishes were 10/10 you couldn't fault them.

I had a really enjoyable experience with my family and will without a doubt be returning.

Lovely pub and fantastic staff. Food slightly mixed bag- some excellent, some a little off the mark (overdone burger and underdone baked Camembert) but still tasty. Overall would recommend as the staff and ambience are so great!!

Overall the food was excellent - just one small observation that the dish of veg that came with our very good roasts (incl a lovely vegan roast) was somewhat overcooked.

We arrived early as we were en route and they were very helpful and let us sit early. We then received news that meant we had to leave as soon as possible and they did everything they could to get our food as soon as possible. Service was friendly and super quick. A shame for us as it was beautiful and we would have loved to stay longer to enjoy their beautiful garden! Lovely pub with friendly and helpful staff.

Waitress kept walking past our table with no acknowledgement so didn’t place an order for 40 minutes. We were just looking around aimlessly trying to get someone’s attention.

Delicious food (I had the Masons Burger, my friend the chicken burger). Food took a while to come, they were very busy and it was the first week back open indoors so probably just getting back up to speed. Atmosphere and decor indoors great. Would definitely come again

The food was amazing, not a bad price either...
But 1hr 30m wait for food was unbelievable considering there were only about 6 families there? - probably wouldn’t have been so bad if we had had a “sorry for the delay” but there was nothing lol.

The food was amazing definitely worth the price. All the staff and the new owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Felt very safe with the one way system and foot handles to open the doors so you didn’t have to use the door handles, very thoughtful system. We took the dog who also was well and truly greeted we can’t wait to go again!

Lovely food and plenty of choice even with a reduced menu.

We had a GF guest in our party and I rang up before hand just to check whether there was any dishes they would be able to have and the menu knowledge of the person I spoke to was outstanding and there was plenty of GF items on the menu.

Great service even if the staff were getting slightly damp in the rain. And the tables were well spaced apart to follow Covid-19 measure and they had good procedures in place. We’ll definitely by back again but maybe for a table in the warm next time :)
