Traditional two bar local retaining many original features. Greene King's flagship pub with a wide range of beers (all from Westgate Brewery) 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.
Lunchtime meals (not just snacks)
