We visited the Unicorn for Sunday lunch today and whilst some of our party enjoyed the wonderful rare roast beef, I opted for the totally scrumptious slow roasted pork. All the roasts were accompanied by the largest yorkshires I have seen in a long time. The pub has recently been refurbished and was buzzing well into the afternoon. ( If... More

The Unicorn is a lovely historic building in the market square of the beautiful old town of Deddington. The bedrooms have names, not numbers, which made us feel at home right from the beginning. Our room was Phoenix, which overlooked the market square and was plenty big enough for the three of us overnight. We were out late at a... More

We were recently told that this establishment was under new management and the food and the new ambience of this pub/restaurant wound be worth trying. We subsequently went for Sunday lunch and, on the back of that experience, booked for Christmas day, a first as we had always eaten at home before. On both occasions what a very pleasant surprise,...

After decades of flip-flops between a series of leasees and interim "pub managers", I am DELIGHTED to report that The Unicorn has finally found a winner in its newest management duo!!! Although a long-term resident of the village, I had not called in to The Unicorn for about two years after having brought guests here a couple of years ago... More

I was recommended to go here by a friend who lives in the village, they have just completed a lovely refurbishment and have new management and I have to say it was fantastic. The food was very well cooked, seasoned to perfection and very well presented. The portions were perfect and the prices were very reasonable for the level of... More

This lovely market place pub in the beautiful village of Deddington has recently been completely refurbished and to be honest it was about time. Everything internally is now fresh and modern and the new menu is varied and imaginative, offering a really good alternative to what is currently available in the village. The food was excellent and the atmosphere in... More

Very friendly pub, and the price was very reasonable. Could do with updating, also be alot better when a chef is appointed. The breakfast was continental and there are no meals served in the evening, which is a shame because the menu looked good and the restaurant was of a good standard. All in all a peasant stay.

Please note that the Unicorn Inn has (since November 2013) been fully renovated and under new ownership. The new landlords, Chris and Johnny want to offer you a warm welcome and ask you to disregard reviews (like this one) before the 30th November 2013. Look forward to seeing you soon at The Unicorn!

Hard to find as my booking source showed it as Banbury when in fact it was in Dennington, a small village about 20 min from Oxford. I have nothing else to comment on. The village is very small. The plumbing was sketchy. The place is very old and not updated. The price was reasonable and included a continental breakfast.

I had low expectations for the Unicorn based on other reviews, but because of price I chose it for our Cotswolds weekend. Its a quick drive from Chipping Norton and in a cute village with a handful of other pubs. The room was great, it had period features like wood beams, a large bathroom with a tub and was clean...
