The Masons Arms at Branscombe thankfully, hasn’t been ruined, there’s a lovely fire that warms your back as you order your drinks. Once we’d warmed up and ordered food, we sat down and waited for starters, which was Crispy Chilly Beef, served on a satisfying rocket and sour pepper base - this was a lovely light, tasty starter. Also sampled was the Vulscombe Goat’s Cheese & Thyme Tart. Mains were presented:- Herb Infused Couscous with Char Grilled Chicken, Steak & Kidney Pie and also Devonshire Rump. Homemade pie is one of my benchmarks, it was delicious as was the Devonshire Rump, real melt-in-the-mouth meat, the best I’ve had in many years. My friend was in agreement, briskly finishing the plate. Ending the meal with Pumpkin Tart and the West Country Cheese Board, I can report the food as being of excellent quality. The Masons Arms is a proper pub with great character and excellent food. Herb Infused Couscous & Char-grilled Chicken Salad West Country Cheese Board Someone who knows their Devonshire steak!
