Had lunch there recently - delicious pate and tasty salmon. Service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. Plenty of competition in Deddington and the Unicorn ensures the quality bar is high. Will return

Despite staff members mess up on our food pre order our food came very quickly. Lots of different dishes were ordered and none could we fault. The restaurant was full, always a testament to an establishment and this only a Thursday. If you have not visited before the delicious smell of food hits you the minute you walk on the... More

Stayed in the Centaur room and very clean. Food was and is amazing. Staff superb and atmosphere a bit on the rowdy side but bearable. Bit of outside noise but it's well recommended and we will be back. Ideal to visit the amazing Oxford and Cotswolds area .

I found the Unicorn by chance some months ago when I was in Deddington and wanted lunch. At the time I resolved to return and stay. Seven months later I made it! I wasn't disappointed, friendly GOOD food a rare genuine kitchen not warmed over reheated meals. Even on a Thursday the food service was busy, but we were still... More

I needed somewhere to stay on a regular basis for work and found the Unicorn to fit the bill. Accommodation was good an old building so sloping floors and quirky rooms but tidy & wifi throughout which is a bonus. I found it very busy in the small bar & didn't eat there as I knew of several other places... More

I stayed here for one night on a business stopover. Check in was easy and informal (the room was paid for in advance). This is a pub with a restaurant, and I was shown to my tom directly above the bar. The room was ok, spacious enough but quirky, with uneven floors which meant having to be careful when placing...

I booked into the Unicorn to attend the Cropredy - Fairport Convention Festival. I arrived mid morning Saturday and was welcomed by the management team who took my bags as the room wasn't expected to be ready for check in until 2pm. I phoned the Unicorn Inn mid afternoon to confirm that I would be arriving back after midnight. I... More

Loved this place....fun, quaint, friendly and a great place to stay. Found the Unicorn by chance when looking for hotels in Banbury....and so glad I did. From when I arrived I found the welcome warm and friendly, the ale excellent, the room was great (stayed in the Centaur) and the venison burger was absolutely fantastic. Was at ease chatting to...

This place has lots going for it. Nice building and location, good food and friendly staff. They are severely let down by poor quality control, and needless inefficiencies. Our room was not properly serviced on our second night there, or serviced AT ALL on our third night. This was solved by one of the bar staff on the first occasion... More

Very comfortable last Wednesday night, good food, good service, and very friendly staff. The hotel served real ale from a variety of breweries. A very great change (good) from the "mass produced" hotel chains.
