The Acorn Inn is indeed a special place to stay. Our room - Hope Cover - was very comfortable and our little dog was made to feel most welcome. There was a feeding bowl, a towel and a bag of treats for him. A very nice little touch. The food was exceptional and the service friendly and professional. We will... More

We found the old pub but great rooms very querky as the were all over the place and one need a good memory to find your room. The room over the bar was definitely noisy but in a good way. It was just a back ground of noise which added an ambience to the room. Mind you it had all... More

I needed a quintessentially English pub with good food and drink to meet, greet and entertain my guests from several European countries the evening before my daughter's marriage in the Summer Lodge on the Saturday. Jack and Alex provided everything I asked for and more......superb buffet, wine and ale plus the use of the skittle alley that proved to be... More

Just came back from a wonderful stay at the Acorn Inn! The staff and owners were so welcoming and the food was amazing! Everything is well thought out and the rooms had great character! Great value for money and lots to do in the surrounding area. Cannot wait to come again!

'What's not to like' about this place ? Tucked away off the beaten track, Evershot is a delightfully charming, tiny jewel of an English village; thatched houses, quaint church, village shop and the wonderful Acorn Inn complete with its (almost) low ceilings, traditional bar, indoor skittles, beer garden an a beautifully cozy restaurant. We stayed for two nights in mid... More

From the moment we entered the Acorn to the moment we left, we felt well catered for, relaxed and pampered. The inn is pretty, cosy and informal while the staff are thoroughly professional and consistently friendly. We were shown to our delightful room in the centre of the inn - the four poster bed was delightful and large and easily... More

This hotel looks delightfully quaint and appears to be well-run. The staff are all helpful and extremely friendly. It was pretty busy, and it's clear it's not short of well-heeled customers following the Thomas Hardy tourist trail. But I thought it was slightly expensive for what it is. Our standard rooms were picturesque but about as small as you can... More

As it says on the label, this hotel couldn't have been better for all our needs. Clean tidy friendly and most importantly they say they welcome dogs and they do. Not like some places who say they welcome them and then hide you away in the corner of the hotel somewhere. They welcome pets and their owners and you can... More
