Just around the corner from Bath Abbey is a cosy modern bistro which has made a big name for itself. Under the guidance of head chef Steven Yates, Acorn puts vegetables in the spotlight, creating beautiful contemporary dishes using new techniques and delicious ingredients. Having worked for vegetarian chef Rachel Demuth as head chef at her eponymous restaurant for many years, Acorn’s owner Richard Buckley bought this little bistro from her in 2013, and embarked on rebranding, revitalising and reinventing a long-established Bath institution. Five years on and Acorn has been included in The Good Food Guide and received a plethora of awards including the Viva! award for Best Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant in the UK. The lunch menu at Acorn is £17.90 for two courses, £22.95 for three. The dinner menu is £26.95 for two courses (plus £14 for the wine match menu), and £34.95 for three (with £20 for wine match). We can be certain that at Acorn, plants definitely do taste better.
