“Quite a find miles from anywhere” – this “lovely and laidback” thatched inn is certainly “unique”… and that’s just the Italianate hand-painted ceiling in the dining area. The food, by Mark Dodson (ex-Waterside Inn), is “always fantastic here and reasonably priced for what you get”.
Chef Mark Dodson’s “Waterside Inn pedigree shines through” at this “pub-style” spot in a “quaint little mid-Devon village”. While more “modest” than his former haunt, the “first-class” dishes strike a “perfect balance between the hearty and pretty” – “I always know I’ll enjoy a meal here, menu unseen”.
A “wonderful” gastropub “hidden away in the Devon countryside” where chef Mark Dodson (erstwhile head chef of the Waterside Inn) turns out some “spectacular, sophisticated and delicious” cuisine. “We travelled across the county on a wild winter evening, and were well pleased”.
In a “picturesque village on the edge of Exmoor”, a “terrific” gastropub where chef Mark Dodson (ex-Waterside Inn) produces many “terrific” dishes which at their best “approach perfection”.
The Mason’s Arms Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A really old beamed pub serving excellent food. The Scallop and langoustine starter at £12.80 was perfect, followed by a very good turbot. All well executed and served quickly and efficiently. The Masons arms is a bit hard to find and is situated in the chocolate box village of Knowstone but it is well worth the effort. Two courses for two people with two glasses of wine was a very reasonable £80"
