The acorn was often used by proprietors as a visual sign for an inn. It shows the proprietor’s intention to turn it into a mighty oak from small beginnings. When this Acorn Inn opened almost 400 years ago it was known as the King’s Head. It is stone-built with beamed ceilings and other period features. It is also home to a long-dead highwayman who lived nearby. He had previously been a customer here before his unfortunate demise at the end of a rope. His ghost appears regularly at this inn wearing his uniform as a highwayman of a long black cloak and tricorne hat.
