We were upgraded to one of their four-poster rooms which was fab. The usually Red Carnation Hotel room being eccentric and featuring padded material walls. The staff were super friendly/helpful and we loved our Bouchard Finlayson wine and the food was amazing. Definitely worth a stay here!

From the moment we stepped through the door to our last goodbyes we felt welcomed, valued and special. All staff were friendly, professional and offered us a warm welcome and a high standard of service. Nothing was too much trouble and at reception, the bar and the restaurant it felt as if the whole team knew exactly what they were... More

This is a very good Inn. Excellent range in the bar, good food. Service from the friendly staff is excellent. There are 2 small criticisms in that we were in a small room that seemed expensive for the size. Also breakfast is not served until 8.00, continental is available but if you want the English you have to wait. However... More

The Acorn Inn is the junior partner in the delightful village of Evershot to the upscale and somewhat pretentious Summer Lodge Hotel but, believe me, the "senior partner" could learn a lot from the Acorn Inn most especially in the kitchen. Portion size and consistency at Summer Lodge were poor (a joke frankly: how can any establishment which wants to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Summer Lodge Hotel (amazing experience) and we wanted to have a casual dinner. This same night there was a major football game and asked the Acorn Inn if we could accommodate a TV and us having dinner. They really accommodated us and treated like King and Queen. Food was excellent and I asked... More

Visited in March with Ozzie our dog. Alex, Jack and the team could not have been more welcoming to us all and Ozzie gave it top marks for his own personal homemade peanut butter dog biscuits – they didn’t last long !!! He also got well spoilt throughout our stay by guests and staff alike. As for us, the beer... More

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of July, From the moment we walked through the door until we left the whole experience was a delight. Although we had booked the smallest room it was very well appointed and comfortable. There is even information for dogs if you are a dog owner, although we aren't. The bar is... More

Loved the Acorn. The service there was amazing. One of the employees even drove us into town to pick up our rental car so we would not have to pay taxi fares. My kids liked it better than London! The surrounding area is amazing w/ walks, villages, manor houses, and castles all around. The Acorn provides a lovely atmosphere to... More

He decided to have a weekend away, and picked a beautiful hotel over the road linked to the restaurant. From the outside it looks a smart typical small village inn, but when you step through the door your journey begins. From first contact the staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable an passionate about the restaurant. The menu was well thought out... More
