The good service is let down by a very basic menu - unimaginative pub food. No specials board to give it a bit of a lift and very little suitable for vegetarians/ vegans. We have been visiting the Acorn over many years and through 3 owners. The food was amazing in the early years but has gone down hill. It’s a shame because it is a welcoming and fun place to visit- bands still too loud though.

Hello,
Love the new interior, we ended up inside as down the back driveway quite far away. Looking forward to deck area opening. Sadly a table of 30 arrived outside we were told and we waited 40 mins for our meal. We were offered a free round of drinks as a courtesy which was appreciated.

Very spruced up new design (miss the clocks). Food as good as always, staff helpful and cheerful. All the COVID regulations well handled and and spacing adhered to.
And of course in the middle of it all the lovable and affable Tony.
