See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Dating from pre-Napoleonic times, the Masons claims to be the oldest pub in town. It is generally a community-orientated pub with a very welcoming atmosphere. The pub has been extensively refurbished throughout, together with some changes to the configuration to reflect a more modern establishment whilst maintaining the historic feel on entering the public bar at the front of the building. This bar has stone floor and walls, a spot-lit beamed oak ceiling, with panelled bench-style seating along the walls which areadorned above with local photos. Alternatively, a small lounge bar can be found down some steps and to the right offering a quieter area to relax. On this level too is a large dining room and bar with will well-spaced attractive wooden tables and chairs offering panoramic views of Bodmin Gaol and environs. Walking through the ‘Diner’ down some steps leads to an outside bar, seating patio area and vista. At present, bar food only is served at lunch times and evenings. The pub is near the Camel Trail and the Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway (Bodmin General).
