I stayed in The Acorn for just under a week last month over my Birthday with my dog, Monty. The room was a little small but sufficient for our needs. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The food was also very good. I would definitely stay here again.

After a long drive to Dorset, followed by watching some school rugby Kate and I entered the reception area to be greeted warmly by the owner. We said we had a reservation for the night but were in great need of a drink and we were quickly shown the bar and served with a pint and a half of "Gem",... More

Stayed 5 nights in this lovely old inn in the pretty village of Evershot. Stayed in one of their better rooms called the Hardy Room in reputed 350 year old 4 poster bed. The food and service was of the highest quality, and the place was unsuprisingly always busy. However, several nights the residence lounge was turned into a meeting... More

We were welcomed by Raquel who gave us a short introduction which covered everything one could possibly have needed to know. It was particularly useful as the couple with us were Danish so not familiar with the ways of English pubs. It set the standard for the next 2 days with great service & food. The General Managers the McKenzie’s,... More

Stayed three nights mid week to relax and get some sea air. A great base from which to explore Dorset. Attentive and friendly staff, homely and comfortable with excellent food and a reasonable every day wine list. Been twice and will certainly stay here the next time we are in Dorset.

We stayed here one night as part of our On Foot Holiday walk. The Acorn Inn is not only comfortable and clean, the staff are friendly and professional. Our room was a good size located up in the attic. As we were walking down to Bridport the next day we asked if we could buy a packed lunch to take... More

Fantastic meal with really lovely service. You must be kidding if you only give it 4 stars. The food was amazing. I had the spicy crab starter which was simply one of the nicest dishes I've ever tasted. The lamb main course was brilliant too. Wines are great value & just the friendliest helpful service you could wish for. I... More

What a fabulous start to our mini-moon to the Westcountry. After a rather long ferry journey from Jersey with our two spaniels we were met with a warm greeting by the Manager Jack late at night and had some tea and a pint, before settling in to our spacious room nicely nestled at the end of a corridor to minimise...
