The meals were reasonable and quite nice. the only thing that spoilt our stay was the alarm went off, due to a fault(about 1am) and went on until the engineer arrived to fix it. which wasn't the staffs fault. so didn't get very much...

Stayed here for B and B and evening meal Friday 5th August. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean spacious room with modern en suite and generally very pleasant atmosphere.Good choice of typical pub food which was very reasonably priced. Very pleasant stay and good value. One grumble was no proper coffee at breakfast but otherwise all great.

stopped for one night on 15/07/16. The room was very clean but basic for the price. The food was very disappointing, I had salmon salad, the salmon was very dry and overcooked and the salad had far too much onion which overpowered the whole dish. My partner had the mixed grill which again was very overcooked to the point which... More

The Unicorn was manically busy on my arrival in the middle of a roasting Sunday afternoon, but there is not a single thing wrong with the place, and it is exceptionally good value. Later on the Sunday evening it became much quieter and relaxing. I would use this place again.
