Masons Arms

5-7 Higher Bore Street, Bodmin, PL31 1JS

Dating from before Napoleonic times, this pub claims to be the oldest licensed premises in town. The lively and welcoming slate-flagged public bar provides pub games - darts and dominoes are played - whilst regular entertainment includes a quiz night on Tuesdays, Trigg Morris on Thursdays, and a folk night Fridays when the local folk club meet. The recently-extended lounge is quieter and preferred by locals seeking a more relaxed pint, whilst a function room is also available. There are always one or two interesting guest ales served in this friendly pub, with the emphasis on local breweries. It is on the edge of the town centre and slightly too far out for the pub crawl 'circuit'. The pub is near the Camel Trail.
