As a special birthday treat, my friend and I were going to spend a day at the Lesley Waters Cookery School in Halstock and, as we were travelling from London, decided to stay in Dorset the night before the cookery class so we didn't have a long drive on the day. We had been recommended the Acorn Inn as a lovely place to stay and that Summer Lodge was a lovely place to have dinner. We were not disappointed! We had booked dinner for 7.00pm but didn't arrive at the Acorn until 7.10pm. They immediately telephoned Summer Lodge and said we were running late. We were shown to our rooms (we had booked two of the four poster rooms) and were delighted with what we saw. The rooms were very well furnished and of a good size. The usual tea, coffee, biscuits and water were on hand and it was exceptionally clean. We walked across the road to Summer Lodge for dinner, which was excellent , and then walked back to the Acorn for a nightcap before retiring to bed. In the morning, my friend had the full english breakfast and I had the boiled eggs and soldiers (which were cooked to perfection!). The staff were very friendly and were on hand to help if need be. If I have to say anything negative about our stay, it was that our rooms were facing the 'main' road which runs through Evershot and we could hear the traffic from around 7.00am in the morning. Saying that, our stay was on a Wednesday night and no doubt the locals who lived in the village had jobs to go to on Thursday! Overall, we thought that the Acorn Inn was a wonderful place to stay and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.
