WE first visited Acorn Bank about a year ago and were really impressed with it. Again we visited on a lovely sunny day and the gardens were still looking beautiful towards the end of the growing season. Acorn Bank has a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere and we enjoyed watching the restored water wheel in motion. You can buy the flour at the NY shop. This is a work in progress and it was faciniating to see the changes since our last visit. However the Courtyard cafe was not such a good experience. The waiters were disorganised and it took ages to serve customers even though it was not that busy. Our Sunday lunch was fairly good but under seasoned and when I asked for salt and pepper was told they don't provide it. Really? I also asked for spoons to serve out our vegetables which were in seperate containers and mint sauce in a little pot. I was brought a tiny teaspoon for the lot. Other customers asked for mayonaise( we don't provide it) though some was eventually brought reluctantly by the waiter. Order well ahead if you're hungry and take your own serving spoons.
