41 Lower Odcombe
The Masons Arms is a delightful thatched pub in a traditional and peaceful hamstone village. It is a very friendly area with many National Trust properties nearby and other areas of natural beauty. It is an ideal base for walking, and the proximity of Yeovil means it has good road and public transport links close by and is ideally located for business trips.
We use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible for our meals which are prepared on the premises, and we even have our own micro brewery! In short it is ideal for business or pleasure and you are assured of a warm welcome by us and our village
My partner and I had been running pubs together for ten years as managers for various breweries before we found The Masons Arms. We instantly fell in love with the pub and knew we had to buy it. We were then overwhelmed by the welcome we received from the villagers who have helped us in so many ways since our arrival; from John, our unconventional vicar, who broadcast details of the opening night from the pulpit to Sheila, our local artist, who has allowed us to use her beautiful paintings of the pub; not to mention help with websites, posters, all matters chicken-related, and provision of local honey, fish and vegetables all from talented and generous customers/villagers.
We now have 6 rooms, situated next to the garden and away from the road, not that there is much traffic in Odcombe! Our rooms have recently been refurbished to luxury standard: We believe that a pub should always be a pub not a restaurant and we therefore offer a blackboard menu with traditional favourites such as Ham, Egg and Chips and Sausage and Mash alongside a daily changing a la carte menu. Both choices are available to you wherever you decide to sit, either inside the pub or outside in the pretty garden (weather permitting!). We serve a sumptuous breakfast of cereals, patisseries, full English using local produce and freshly laid eggs (possibly by our own chickens) accompanied by juice, tea and coffee.
It's a meal sure to set you up for your day.
If your trip is for business or pleasure we are only minutes away from Yeovil which is served by two train stations and we are only 5 minutes from the A303. There is a wealth of things to do in the area including market towns such as Sherbourne, many National Trust properties, excellent walking and the beaches of the Jurassic coast are only 45 minutes away. You are assured of a warm welcome and we aim to ensure your stay with us is a memorable one that will make you want to come again!
