With only seven reviews out of the hundreds of people who have eaten at The Acorn, the scores are easily distorted to give the impression that this is not a good cafe! The Acorn serves genuine wholefoods, so if you like scones made with white flour, you may be disappointed.All scones are made with wholemeal flour, and so may not suit those with an unadventurous palate. To me, they are delicious, and very filling.
The full salads that this cafe produces are lovely. The soups are usually delicious (I have been here on numerous occasions over the years), and the quiche, although thin, is full of flavour. The cafe is dog-friendly (one room is set aside for them),
I have found the young staff here to be polite, efficient and very helpful, and the owner, although sometimes preoccupied with the task in hand (it can get very busy), has shown considerable generosity over the years with charitable projects e.g the world's biggest coffee morning for breast cancer. There is an interesting tea garden at the rear of the property; pretty, but also a bit untidy.Unfortunately there are stairs to climb to the main cafe, so disabled access is not good.
