Acorn is famed specialty are the hot meat pies, which compliment the many vegetarian dishes, and they also have a selection of varied cakes and desserts to die for. Many dishes are geared to specialist diets and tastes, with gluten free, sugar free, wheat free and vegan tastes catered for. Local ingredients are used when available, organic wholemeal flour to make pastry, scones, cakes and puddings. Organic ingredients are always used as a first choice.
