About Acorn Restaurant
Award-winning, innovative vegan food in the heart of Bath. Relax and catch up with friends over a glass of wine in one of Bath’s oldest buildings. With a view of the Abbey from our panelled Georgian dining room we promise a meal to remember for years to come
The food was excellent but not very much of it and expensive for the small amount, I certainly did not feel full at the end, we had two plates and some bread. The service was a little disappointing as the waitress was a little brusque and did not explain the menu at all to us at the start, it is somewhat confusing as you have three menus with the same and different things on it.
Did not like the £10 Boking fee for booking on line when I could have book by phone for nothing. Also do not like the service charge already added to the bill. Have been coming to this restaurant since it opened as Demusse several time a year. But with these additional charges I do not feel there has been that improvement to justify the increase in the cost.
We really enjoyed our meal.
Me and my friends had a wonderful lunch on Saturday. We were given the cosy cwtch which provided some extra privacy while we dined but also added to the specialness of the occasion. Beautifully presented and full of flavour, there was an array of options available to order. The Copenhagen Fizz cocktail was also delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend Acorn or to visit again.
It would've been much better to have been seated upstairs rather than in the basement which isn't such a pleasant dining experience
My partner and I are at the restaurant and had the tasting menu. We found that there were a lot of similar flavour used and the nut flavour was often overpowering e.g the use of hazelnut in dishes. We enjoyed the ambience and the service but in the while we didn’t particularly enjoy our meal.
Amazing food and great service
Overall, we had a very special evening, with beautiful food (plant-based...hooray!) and good service. My mum was very happy with the wine pairings. For food, we ordered three tasting menus. Generally, we were blown away by the flavours. The carrot dish, celeriac with truffle dish and the pear dessert were particularly delicious. The cauliflower dish was the only one that fell a bit flat for us. The only noticeable thing that detracted from our dining experience was that it was quite chilly sitting on our table by the window. Draught-proofing would be appreciated!
We loved every minute of it. Great food and great wine in a cosy restaurant... What else can you ask for? We'll definitely be back next time we are in Bath.
Fantastic flavourful dishes and professional service at lunch time.
We had a lovely meal. Our 4-month old son was welcomed and thankfully he behaved! We have been telling everyone about Acorn.
Delicious, cleverly crafted grub and great service! Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Wonderful service, sublime food , will travel from London to visit again and again !
Visited Acorn for the first time with family members who have Coeliac disease and several food allergies as well as being vegan. Turned out brilliantly as our guests were told only one or two dishes were NOT suitable whereas in most restaurants only one or two dishes ARE suitable. Very inventive food with great flavours. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lovely Sunday lunch, have recommended to friends
I don’t normally leave reviews but felt compelled to leave one for The Acorn having enjoyed an exceptional lunch there last Saturday. What a find...I took my mother and aunt as we were celebrating my mothers birthday. We are new to vegan food and what a treat it turned out to be. Beautiful flavours, a great selection of dishes and wonderful presentation. Friendly and efficient service with pleasant explanations as required. We will definitely return.
A wonderful evening. Compliments to all the service, with a secial mention for our sommelier. My partner had a wonderful birthday. We will be back.
We had an amazing night with superb food, excellent service and wonderful ambiance. I would highly recommend the Acorn
Been eating for many years and the standard of food has got better and better.
Superb flavours made all the more palatable by wonderful service. A real treat.
The food was fantastic. We did find it pretty expensive however. Our seat was right by the door which was chilly every time it was open. And it felt cramped particularly where there were people waiting at the adjacent till or struggling with an over full coat rack.
I’m sorry to say we had a very disappointing experience. The service was fine as was the ambiance but...the food was something else. Having enjoyed vegan food In a variety of cafes and restaurants in Bath we expected high things from the award winning Acorn and it was my birthday treat to go there for lunch with my mum and daughter. We were sat or rather perched in an alcove on the most uncomfortable narrow ledge which felt akin to to those benches you get as bus stops and spent an uncomfortable hour continuously sliding off. The food (3 dishes each) was almost laughable were it not for the cost (£40 per person) one dish was ...wait for it...half a carrot (half!) with a sprig of pea shoots. Seriously? We left still hungry and £115 worse off. Not only will we not recommend this restaurant as local residents we will not be returning. The only thing in its favour is it was memorable but for all the wrong reasons.
Lovely location, extensive range of wines. Beautifully presented food, innovative and exciting. Really enjoyed our lunch in a relaxed and informal atmosphere! Having one toilet to service the whole restaurant was a surprise - that would be a challenge if it was a busy evening service I would think and its location could be a distraction if you're sitting downstairs in the basement.
Exciting to anticipate the interestingly named menu items and too interesting not to want to try them all. Informed staff who are friendly and welcoming. Will always want to book again.
