Nestled in the heart of the quintessential village of Branscombe, on the south Devon coast, The Masons Arms oozes all the charm and character you'd expect from a centuries-old pub. Think large beer garden, cosy bar with low-beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls and a warming log fire, set amidst rows of pretty thatches, just a stone's throw from Branscombe beach. It's the perfect base to explore the Jurassic Coast, with a bar and restaurant menu that makes good use of the local and seasonal ingredients, serving West Country ciders and locally brewed beers. It's also dog and family-friendly, making for a memorable coastal getaway for all.
