...... might be one way of describing The Unicorn. It is a place of contrasts. The decor/furnishings/fabric are all beyond rustic, even dilapidated. Scruffy doesn't mean character. However: The staff were very friendly and helpful. The towels and bed linen gleaming white. Plenty of tea and coffee in the rooms, and help yourself refills on the landing. Plus bottled water....

popped in for a drink and see what new management was like,shame the old bar maid was so grumpy she needs to know customers pay her wages, the owner was slouched at the bar she was completely disinterested in any customer service. We will not be going back.

We ate here a little while ago, but we are inspired to write this review on reading the unusually positive comments made by others. We felt we should share our horrible experience of lunch at this pub. On arriving in the pub, we received a rather unfriendly greeting from the man behind the bar, but were shown to our table...

En route home after a disastrous overnight hotel stop elsewhere, looking for a decent lunch, we revisited this town centre pub where we'd had a good meal some years before. We had an excellent Sunday lunch, supplied at moderate cost, and without a prior booking. Helpful and welcoming staff, in spite of it being very busy. Unpretentious, good solid English... More

Only stayed for one night it was very clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit old it had the old fashioned springs so creaked a bit and every time you moved you rolled together. The bathroom could do with an overhaul and maybe some non slip lino would be better. The breakfast was perfectly cooked to order so you... More

The landlord was really helpful, friendly without being familiar and the food was proper English pub meals at good prices. My Mother tried the freshly caught trio of Cornish fish, pronouncing it delicious, while I went for sauteed mushrooms in cream and garlic to start, followed by steak, ale and mushroom pie. Nothing fancy, just decent food, sensible pricing and... More
