Traditional two bar local retaining many original features. Greene King's flagship pub with a wide range of beers including trial beers unavailable elsewhere.

Curiously, though the pub is the Masons Arms, the old sign says Mason Arms. Mistake or interesting story?

The building dates back to the early 16th century; the weatherboarding from the 19th.

Note that half pints of ale are priced more than half of the cost of a pint.
