Having called in today for a drink and an early evening dinner I am so pleased to see that finally after several changes of management over the preceding years the pub is finally back to its...

After a long family walk we decided to stop at the unicorn Inn for some much needed lunch. It is a small pub but had a nice feel about it as we walked in. It is obviously a locals pub. One elderly man serving quite a busy bar. No order to the queue and the locals who were stood at... More

An average hotel at a very low price - £49 from memory. Rooms small and need an upgrade all round but you get what you pay for and this was just Ok. Nice bar and manager tries very hard to make you welcome and join in. Had to pre-book breakfast which we didn't bother with

The food was good and the beer good (and a lot cheaper than at nearby hotel). Surprisingly quiet for a Friday night. I had a pie which was good (a bit too much pastry). Starter was good - there was a lot of it.
