And what a fantastic story it is too since Arkell's bought the pub in 2009 after it closed and was left empty. With reports of 39 rural pubs closing every week, the villagers thought it would never open again, but after a major investment & the appointment of new licensee Paul Fallows (who grew up in the village), it is now recognised as one of the best pubs in the country.

A refurbishment in 2015 created a brand new purpose-built kitchen and a freshly renovated dining room adjoining a central bar characterised with traditional beamed ceilings and Cotswold stone. Upstairs, eight renovated bedrooms feature a mix of stone and beams in addition to additional rooms with a more contemporary feel; all of which enjoy views of neighbouring farms and manor houses.

The Masons Arms is a welcoming, dog-friendly pub that serves well-kept Arkell's ale, wines by the glass and a wide selection of gins. The pub sits proudly on the Village Green in the heart of Meysey Hampton, giving ample space to enjoy drinks or food outside in the summer months and has a large open fire and wood burners for the winters. The pub's focus on being a local hub to the village is further enhanced by local photographer's work which adorns the walls throughout, providing visitors a feel from the local area.

The pub has become a central hub for the area by providing a new dimension to the village pub; offering a place for friends to meet for coffee mornings, for business meetings and as an alternative work space; in addition to the post school-run drop offs.

As well as locals, the pub continues to tempt customers from far and wide with is fresh take on dining, drinking and sleeping.
