Close in on a good meal
The Acorn Lodge is rightly proud of its Melissa restaurant, which serves freshly-prepared Mediterranean-style dishes. The restaurant, which looks out onto the patio garden, is open for breakfast from 6am to 9am, and again for dinner from 6pm to 9.30pm.
- Breakfast: 6am to 9am
- Dinner: 6pm to 9.30pm
Breakfast - Get your day off to a good start with cereal, juice and a fresh-brewed tea or coffee, while the chef gets busy in the kitchen preparing you a hearty English or vegetarian breakfast. We found it hot, fresh and tasty and the portions very generous! And the best news is, it's all free.
Dinner - For dinner, the a la carte menu features French, Italian and Turkish cuisine. Whether youre in the mood for authentic, home-made shish kebabs, roast lamb shank or fresh Dover Sole, theres something here thats bound to tempt you. Starters cost around £5 and main courses start at £8 and go up to £18.50 for seafood dishes. Theres over twenty main courses to choose from and we thought the food looked and smelled fantastic. Leave space for dessert if you can, theres a daily selection of mouth-watering puddings.
