Saturday 29th April - Table for four. Great food, friendly and helpful staff. Surf and Turf was delicious as was the Prawn dish and the sirloin steak! Starters teriyaki meatballs, crab cakes, duo of mushrooms and soup - all delicious. Finished off with lovely deserts and coffee. Delightful! Best restaurant in Tullamore - for sure!

Amazing service, super nice owner, best chips in Tullamore, delicious salmon and wonderful desert. We go every time we are in Tullamore. Food is not over done with decorations or sauces -- simply presented and very skillfully cooked.

We always book into the Acorn for a meal when we are back in Ireland. The staff are very attentive and Greg and Carmel are so welcoming. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing and the tables are arranged so that you have privacy and comfort when dining. On this occasion my husband had a steak which was cooked to perfection... More

Ordered the meal, this was an ordeal in itself but adding house wine to the list was too much for the owner! We decided to walk. Try the Blue Apron, right beside and far, far friendlier.

We spent an extremely pleasent evenong in the Acorn &... More
