Ate here twice over the weekend. Food was much as I might have prepared at home. Oddly, we had the vegetarian chilli on each visit and it was completely different. Better on Sunday than Friday. Great service and friendly staff.

We decided to stroll to the Unicorn from the Mercure Hotel down the road after poor service there during dinner the previous evening. The Unicorn was welcoming with good pub food, good beer and wine (which were half the price of drinks at the Mercure) and the added bonus of Terry Tinsel, the ultimate pub singer!

We had a excellent lunch at the Unicorn. I had the pork belly with black pudding gravy which was to die for my wife had chicken which was just as good. Glenn and Lynne were very friendly and we wish we had stayed here and not the Mercure just up the road

The menu is very concise and is all standard British 'pub grub' - pie, scampi, steak, fish and chips, not even a chicken korma in sight! However, the food they do, they do extremely well! We had chicken skewers (from the specials board) to start. I was refreshing to be served perfectly cooked mini fillets of chicken with a lovely... More

The Unicorn is back! Friendly welcoming landlord, very good chef. Generous portions at very reasonable price and very tasty too. The wine was surprisingly good at the price as well, so we will be dining there on a regular basis from now on.

Have been meaning to write this review for a while but haven't had chance. We dined here on mothers day as a bit of a last minute decision having never tried it before. We weren't disappointed - the staff were really friendly and the food nice and really reasonably priced. All of our party were happy with their food as... More

We just stopped by for a couple or three drinks mid-week as I'd never been, despite the fact that I've driben past it most days for the last 25 years! Very pleasant pub, a few locals, and has a low key TV in the background. I think I will bring her indoors back for lunch one weekend.

We arrived 20 minutes after they should have stopped serving lunches, but we're happy to make the three of us lunch. The welcome was warm, the landlord coming out to chat to us & the food was delicious & beautifully served. Totally recommend the Unicorn on all counts.

At last someone has taken over the Unicorn that knows about keeping ales. Draught Bass and Pedigree are both excellent and the lagers looked OK, I don't know about the food or the rooms, but if you are passing and fancy a decent pint, you wont be disappointed.
