A post-war pub on the junction of Ringwood Highway and Woodway Lane. Opening as the ACORN, the name was meant to refer to the strange shape of the building. It was also architecturally interesting in that it stood on stilts in order to provide car parking space underneath.

In 1984 it was the ACORN SPORTS CLUB, which suggests that it was failing then and in 1987 it was renamed the MOUNTAINEER. In 1988 it became the POTTERS ARMS, the name came from the pub's location in Potters Green. The pub closed in c1992
