My wife and I went for the Sunday roast dinner at about 1-30pm. Considering everything: Quality, quantity & price, I reckon it was probably the best (non-carvery) roast I've had. Plenty of lovely tasty gravy.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch at the unicorn in Somerton. The food was fresh and the portions ample. The staff were very efficient and friendly Thank you for a wonderful family lunch eaten in a country pub with a roaring open fire.

Made the mistake of staying here on a Saturday night. Given a room overlooking the smokers' area (Bear garden would be a better description). Kept awake until 3 a.m. with whooping and screaming. Next day tried to get some re-dress. The 'Sujpervisor' denied she was there the night before and then in the next breath told me she had shut... More

Service was very good, friendly and attentive, very reasonable prices and the food was well presented and well cooked. Themed Special Offers available on most nights of the week as well as lunch times. Would recommend to anyone. Only downside was the fact that there were a couple of leaks in the Gents toilets which need attention.

Visited hotel on a Sunday evening when staying at a local B&B. It was quiet but not deserted, the staff were very accommodating and helpful. Food was excellent and portions were a little challenging but very wholesome. Service was excellent and they had some very good ale.

Still ordered a curry but no pint with it, no choice of rice offered or chutney with poppadom as menu... More

I have no idea what the other reviews on here are on about - it is a lovely inn with all you could need and ask for. Clean, well presented rooms that are cosy yet modern. I had a shower ensuite but no bath, but that was fine. If you need early nights it might not be the best place... More
