The Acorn Inn – Burncross, Sheffield

The Acorn Inn, one of our local pubs, is an old stone former Coaching Inn, built in 1868. The pub is filled with traditional character and offers a great spot for lunch, dining with the family, or catching up with friends, with great value food in cosy surroundings.

We have visited The Acorn Inn a few times now for food, it’s just a decent, traditional pub to go to for a few drinks and so convenient for down to earth, value for money food too. This is a Greene King franchise but has all the character a small country pub has to offer as well as a great, large covered outdoor dining area with a large TV and a beer garden also. Their Sunday Dinner is fabulous I have to say and there are other good meals to note too… here’s what we’ve had the chance to try so far, but I am sure we will end up eating here again regularly as it’s so close to us and they have lots of offers! If you’re ever passing or live close by, I would recommend popping into The Acorn Inn for food & drinks 🙂


Home-fried nachos with mozzarella, Cheddar and nacho cheese sauce served with salsa, jalapeños and soured cream – these homemade nachos are impressive! Really big, homemade crunchy nachos and loads of toppins, what’s not to enjoy?


Best Pub Pie Champion & Gold Award Winner at the National Pie Awards British beef and rich Ruddles Ale gravy in shortcrust pastry – this impressive and tasty pie was served with Tenderstem® broccoli and gravy and your choice of baby potatoes or oven-baked chips. A really filling and comforting meal that we couldn’t fault.


On Sunday, The Acorn offers Roast Dinners from £12.29 – £13.99 with a choice of turkey, beef, lamb shank and vegetarian options. I went with the Roast Turkey Breast and this was with all the trimmings; roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables,cauliflower cheese, sausage meat stuffing, a pub-baked Yorkshire pudding and rich gravy. This was a right plate-fill and I enjoyed every bit of it! A really decent Sunday Dinner.

Current Offers (Jan 2023) – The Acorn Inn has currently got lots of great offers on this month for you to take the chance to try their amazing value for money food – Feed the family for £20 Monday to Friday, 2 meals for £13.99 Monday to Saturday, Steak Thursdays and more… check out their website here for more information.

We will definitely back to The Acorn Inn for food 🙂 We couldn’t fault the service, the staff are always friendly and helpful, and the food didn’t take long to come either. The restaurant here can get busy at time so I would definitely recommend booking ahead if possible.
