Details

The Acorn Inn, in the picturesque village of Evershot in the heart of the Dorset countryside is an award winning 16th century pub.

With original historical character and charm, complete with old beams, oak panelling and flagstone floors, The Acorn Inn offers ten individually designed en-suite guest rooms, exemplary personal service and award winning dining. Providing a 'home away from home', guests return time and again.

You are sure of a relaxing night’s sleep in our ten individually decorated bedrooms. Each is named according to a Thomas Hardy theme - whether it's a location featured in his novels; his favourite heroine; or even after the author himself. Elegantly designed with a traditional feel in keeping with the historic character of the building, the rooms also offer modern conveniences such as contemporary bathrooms and free Wi-Fi throughout.

The Acorn Inn, with two bars and an award-winning restaurant serving a range of exceptional seasonal dishes, is equally popular with locals and guests alike – and they are proud to have received Gold in the Taste of the West Awards for the third year in a row in 2016.

The restaurant features smartly laid tables, terracotta tiles, soft lighting and an elegant stone fireplace carved with oak leaves and acorns while mouthwatering dishes make inspired use of the finest produce from local and sustainable sources. The bars serve a range of drinks and traditional ales - the perfect place to relax in comfort and catch up on the day's activities with friends.
