Family get together an overall great success. We booked all the rooms for 3 nights and had a wonderful dinner for 20 one night. The rooms were good and well furnished - one or two needed a bit of TLC but the majority were very comfortable. The dinner was a huge success and was excellent all round - and not... More

It has been a long time since I have stayed in a place better than this, greeted on arrival by a friendly team, shown to room and allowed to enjoy. The room was a spacious room for 3 (one double and a single). I slept very well in a very comfortable bed, and enjoyed the very soft towels following a... More

With the exception of a comfortable bed, nothing else about my stay here was good, breakfast was 'continental' in the sense that it wasn't cooked. The pastries on the final day of my stay looked like they had been left out all night. No one cleaned the room each day and there were only enough toiletries for one night. On... More

This is one of the best pub restaurants I have ever enjoyed. The atmosphere was great with lots of people just enjoying a drink and good company. Food was superb with an imaginative menu and creative chef. Being very busy it got a bit noisy, but this only added to the evening. My lamb was so good, precede by lovely... More

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
