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
