Surroundings okay but very noisy. I would avoid the crepes as were served cold and were certainly not cooked fresh. Very expensive was £18.40 for 2 crepes, small soup, black coffee, small apple juice and glass of milk. If you want someplace with nice surroundings,...More

Went for lunch with a family member and got a warm friendly welcome. All the food is homemade and delicious. Nothing overboard but just what you need for lunch or a quick break. All run by volunteers - very impressed!

Popped into the Acorn for a light lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. Food tasted home made with large or small portions available. Price very reasonable for what we got. Staff very friendly and attentive. Will visit again

Good food. Lunch combo is lovely for a light lunch and the coffee is excellent. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Pictures display by local groups and individuals, which changes monthly, is an added interest.

They do a small menu for lunch but the food is always excellent. They do a good soup and sandwich but have main courses as well. They also do very good home bakes if you are popping in for a morning coffee or afternoon tea....More
