Acorn Inn Exterior

A charming 16th-century coaching inn

Hearty & homely

The cuisine at Summer Lodge is legendary, but there may be an occasion during your stay when you fancy something a little more hearty and homely. That’s the time to pop across the road to our sister establishment, The Acorn Inn. Built-in the 16th century from honey-coloured local stone, this old coaching inn still retains its original historical character and charm.

Thomas Hardy mentions it as 'The Sow & Acorn' in 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles' and the interior, with its old beams, low ceilings, oak panelling, flagstone floors, and roaring open fires is little changed from his era. Run by the enthusiastic and experienced management team of Natalie Legg and Richard Legg, it’s that increasingly rare thing – a traditional village pub full of life, laughter, and good company, but with an award-winning restaurant that’s a star attraction in its own right.
