We booked a Christmas break and it was one of the best Christmases we have ever has. It was extremely well organised and extremely relaxed. The food was amazing with good portion sizes and plenty of choice and are looking forward going to go back very soon for a meal. We were very pleased with the size of the room... More

My wife and I stayed over at The Acorn Inn for a single night on 13th February and were totally impressed by the staff, the service, the ambience and the food. Clearly the owners have done this before as they have infused all the staff with polite professionalism and how to make guests feel comfortable and relaxed. Nothing was too... More

My partner booked us in here for one night as a birthday treat for me. What a beautiful, charming place. Its dog friendly, always a plus for us, as we took our two small dogs with us. From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel very welcome, as were our 'two girls'. We had a four poster... More

Four of us enjoyed a superb lunch here today. Truly delicious food and outstanding service. A bit of a journey for us, from the New Forest, and our family who joined us from Somerset, but so worth the journey. We will soon be back!

In a nutshell, fantastic. We were passing through and stopped for some lunch. The soup of the day was leek soup and was properly seasoned. Extra bread was served to us as a family of four. I often judge a place by the quality of the toilet facilities and for a pub in the middle of nowhere I was impressed.... More

I can't recommend the Acorn Inn highly enough - one of the best places I have ever stayed at in the UK. From the moment I arrived, all the staff I met couldn't have been more friendly. Each one of them went out of their way to make me feel welcome and to make sure that I had everything I... More
