Anaïs Ebert

Assistant General Manager

After finishing my Master’s degree in hospitality in France, I had the opportunity to join the Acorn Inn team as a management program participant back in 2019. It has been the perfect place to grow and develop my passion for hospitality. I am now very excited to take the next step in my career as Assistant General Manager, and I feel very lucky to be part of such an amazing and supportive team who strive every day to make your stay with us truly special.

Ana Martins

Head Chef

I started working at The Acorn Inn as Commis Chef after finishing culinary arts school in Portugal. After a year I was promoted to Pastry Chef and most recently to Head Chef. I feel incredibly lucky to have found The Acorn Inn - a place that not only allows me to work alongside a passionate, driven team, but that supports me in developing my career. I am looking forward to helping lead the kitchen team and to continue showcasing Dorset's beautiful, seasonal, and organic produce.

Food & Beverage Manager

I started working at the Acorn kitchen in 2013. In 2015, I moved from the kitchen to the front of house team and soon developed a passion for service excellence and developing positive guest experiences. It has been a privilege learning and developing my knowledge about food and drinks over the past years, and I am excited to continue doing so as Food and Beverage Manager.
