I hate to tell everyone about this place for fear it will be so busy I won't be able to book! The Inn is a little piece of heaven with log fires, fantastic food and great staff, nothing is too much trouble, so kind and welcoming. The rooms are beautifully decorated, just the best and cap it all we could... More

My husband booked us a night away at this cosy pub over the Christmas period. He had taken advantage of the special mid week offer which included dinner, bed and breakfast in a 'snug' room. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival and shown to our room which was 'snug' but clean and had all we needed.... More

This village inn has lots of character, rooms are individual, very comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The staff were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful making our stay very relaxing and suggesting places to visit during our stay. The food was of a very high standard and the young staff serving dinner and breakfast were friendly but... More

The list of reasons to go to the Acorn Inn is endless. Great literary connections. The Acorn or 'Sow & Acorn' is mentioned in Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'urbivilles and Emma (the Gwyneth Paltrow version) was filmed here. You can see why. It is a beautifully quaint and picturesque Dorset village with great walks, scenary and things to keep... More

This was our first stay at the Acorn for a few days break between Christmas and the New Year and it certainly won't be our last. We arrived as Sunday lunch was finishing and the place was buzzing but cosy and welcoming. We (and the dog) were made very welcome by the staff and showed around. Our room ' Tess'... More

Where to start with the praise? The accommodation, the chef, the gourmet food, the staff, the attention to detail, the ambience or with Alexandra and Jack Mackenzie the General Managers?
