Friendly pub with good beer... no food

Excellent beer and ambience, with choice of three good bitters. Parking on road, couple of bars and beer garden. Food not served but you are welcome to take your own food in to consume on the premises.

Whilst visiting friends in Bodmin, the plans for some sightseeing in Cornwall were drowned in a four day long spell of heavy rain and mist. The back-up plan turned out to be a discovery of some of the local pubs in Bodmin itself. On Higher Bore street we chose the Masons Arms and had a few pints of ale. I... More

My partner and I first visited the Mason's Arms around New Year 2014/5, and it had everything I look for in a pub - friendly but not overbearing management and staff, comfortable surroundings, interesting real ales and a roaring fire (complete with an extremely warm and happy cat). We visited again last weekend - I unfortunately don't live locally -... More

This pub no longer does food but don't let that put you off. What it does do is provide just about the best welcome in Bodmin. Couple that with great beer at sensible prices and what more could you want? Don't forget to check out the charity calendar and see who you recognise! Just wish it was walking distance from... More

We had a christening for my partner, our 2 boys and myself. We hired Masons Arms function room for the after party and Wendy and Paul went above and beyond to help us. We couldn't of ask for any more, they were brilliant. All our guests said that the pub was lovely, welcoming and most of all what friendly staff.... More

I arrived at this pub rather more quickly than I had hoped, tripping over the pavement side which is poorly lit and built up for storms. I injured my face and knee. Wendy and Paul immediately sprang into action to help me with their first aid training, warmth and helpfulness. After a couple of brandies a coffee and a takeaway... More

I love this place. Proper Cornish Ales and run by people who know what they're doing. I always bring visitors here and they enjoy the homely surroundings and warm welcome. No food but you can bring along your own from one of the quality take always nearby...and enjoy it with an ale!

The pub no longer sells food and therefore should not be classified as a restaurant. It does however serve a good pint of traditional real ale and the locals are friendly.
