About the employer

The Acorn Inn, run by the enthusiastic and experienced management team of Natalie and Richard, is 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. 

Built in the 16th century from the 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 style, with its old beams, low ceilings, oak panelling, flagstone floors and roaring open fires is little changed from his era.

Ten comfortable en-suite hotel rooms in our family and pet friendly inn provide modern creature comforts including free Wi-Fi, but with traditional fabrics and furnishings in keeping with the period.

The country pub is very much at the heart of the community, with a lively bar frequented by a great crowd of regulars who enjoy the real ales, quiz nights, skittles leagues and yard of ale drinking challenges in the company of laid back Jack. And yet the restaurant also wins top accolades from the serious foodies who come back time and again for the exceptional gastro experience.
