We really liked this hotel, lovely breakfasts, very friendly staff, just the perfect place to bring your dogs as they are welcome in virtually every part of the hotel. The location is fantastic and there are lots of great places to visit such as West Bay, Lyme Regis & Shaftesbury.

We have just spent a great 3 days at The Acorn and loved it. Mainly because of the friendly and extremely good staff but also lovely food too. Very pictureque area and lots of places to go out to. We did Lyme Regis, Dorchester and Poole - all easy to get to. Booking here was easy direct and they gave... More

We were welcomed by Natalie who was so friendly and helpful, our stay had a really good start. The room was absolutely wonderful. Spotless, comfortable, immaculate bathroom, very tasteful décor and... More

This is simply the most beautiful little pub and inn in the UK. From the moment you walk in, you feel like home. The food is spectacular..... Definitely one of the best pubs I have eaten in in the UK.

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

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
