    Lovely traditional old style pub.Spent quite a lot of time in here on our recent week in Ambleside it was definitely our favourite pub and we went in every pub in the village. Very cosy, warm and inviting. Really comfortable seating with lower back support...More

    We booked the Unicorn Inn as it was the cheapest accommodation available in Ambleside (£69 bed & breakfast on a Saturday in December). Quite a good price for the lakes on a weekend. We were warmly greeted by the nice bearded fellow behind the bar....More

    What’s better after a good walk than a refreshing drink and something to eat to rebuild you’re energy levels! The unicorn inn is hidden away and is fantastic. Great menu. We had a Yorkshire pudding one with steak and ale the other sausage and peas,...More

    We were looking for somewhere to have a light supper, having eaten quite late. We didnt eat there because the evening menu didnt have anything light enough but the drinks were good with a good range of beers and nice atmosphere.

    After a boat trip from Bowness to Ambleside while wondering through the beautiful village we stumbled across The Unicorn Inn .. The food was plentiful, very hot .. so if you want to visit a traditional pub give this place a try
