Gloriously located in the foot hills of Exmoor and prime walking country lies the Masons Arms. Think real ale and champagne by the glass. Enjoy exceptional food from award wining chef Mark Dodson or a simple pint in the wonderfully rustic bar that is in perfect keeping with a country inn. Local farmers and growers provide much of the thoughtfully created menus with real emphasis on the finest ingredients. It probably doesn't get much better than this and is well worth seeking out.

Further Details

Your Hosts First Thoughts
We arrived in Devon on the 21st of June 2005 with an idea and a blackboard as a menu, we spent a surreal 10 days helped by friends and a soft opening, getting to know the Inn and the village, no one knew us and our guests were very pleasantly surprised.
We have given ourselves the brief to have a busy local bar and a naturally relaxed dining atmosphere in our restaurant. We aim to serve good honest food, locally sourced wherever possible and with equal care taken in every step from first preparation to final presentation.
On Monday the 4th of July our press release went out and by the end of that week we were in the local paper and the 'phone started to ring……..

Mark, Sarah, Louisa, Charlotte and Alexandra look forward to welcoming you.
