About Us


The Acorn Bar & Restaurant has been in operation for over 10 years now, a cosy and welcoming venue set at the bottom of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges in The Basin. Recently renovated we offer a uniquely friendly atmosphere.

The Acorn is perfect for getting together with friends and family for dinner and drinks, a function celebrating a special occasion or even your wedding.

We have a wide variety of talented artists perform live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday Night and also host many special events during the year such as a monthly trivia night, Mothers Day, Fathers Day etc. (This is currently suspended due to current COVID-19 restrictions)

The Acorn Bar & Restaurant is a family owned business with Tony Eastwood taking over the reigns in November 2016.  Tony has worked hard to create a welcoming and homely atmosphere that is a welcome retreat for everyone who walks through the door.

So call in and visit us at The Acorn Bar & Restaurant sometime soon for a friendly drink, a chat or a tantalising meal cooked by our talented Head Chef.

We look forward to welcoming you as part of The Acorn Bar & Restaurant's Family

Wingin It

Playing those rock and pop party tunes you love to hear on a great night out. They are all about the singing, dancing and a heap of laughs!


Espresso Martini

The Espresso Martini is a sumptuous mix of vodka, coffee liqueur and espresso. It's rich, indulgent and creamy, and the shot of espresso will make sure you keep up with the pack if you find yourself lagging

Nice food, nice staff, great restaurant, terrific entertainment, lovely beer garden, what more could you want
