Review on Acorn Inn

A warm welcome awaits visitors to the 400 year old Acorn Inn in the picturesque Dorset village of Evershot. Run by new owners, Todd and Louise Moffat, Todd describes his restaurant as "London chic come to west Dorset." He takes great pains to source as much as possible from local producers of good food and is always on the hunt for more.

The public bar area is very much as it was before Louise and Todd took over. A good place for a pint and a chat for locals and visitors but the restaurant area has been totally revamped. There is a separate bar for pre dinner drinks for users of the restaurant.

Some of the exciting dishes on the ever changing menu may include local goats cheese wrapped in filo pastry with cranberry sauce or home-made duck liver pate with apple chutney which may lead on to fillet of local venison on glazed shallots with red wine sauce.

Considerable effort has gone into the wine list and the wines are specially selected from smaller growers with character "rather than the big boys" Each wine has been chosen on the basis of quality and individuality. They have been sourced from growers and wine-makers that are passionate about their work and are more 'artisan-craftsmen' than anything else. These are wines that reflect their 'terroir' (best translated as "a sense of place"), true origins and regional culture.
