We live locally and used to go there for a quick drink eventhough the place smelled of dog wee. But this recent time we went the landlord was very offensive to my husband who had brought in his own glass with less than a quarter of his drink in, with him. We were at a bbq locally. Well firstly he... More

Me and my partner didn't visit the unicorn for a long time following a bad experience a few years back. We received very poor service and was made to feel very unwelcome .

Set in the heart of a beautiful little village. Ample car parking and a grassed area for children to play safely. The bar staff and owners were very friendly and really attentive. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. The tea and coffee making facilities in the room were a really homely touch. Lots of choice for breakfast,... More

Having been out for a family walk we booked in for lunch as a group of six. (grandparents, us and kids) we were served drinks and asked if we wanted to find a seat while they sorted our table - in the end we choose to stay where we were sitting - we were comfy, why move. From chatting we... More

My partner and I are staying up the road in a different hotel but I wish we had booked to stay here. We only popped in to The Unicorn for a bite to eat and a couple of beers but the new owner (moved in 6 weeks ago) couldn't do enough to please us. He was only meant to be... More

Took my sister here for a bite to eat. Ordered the homemade pies with chips and peas. Heard the pinging of a microwave whilst waiting for our food and was hoping that our homemade pie was not in it. Unfortunately when it came to the table, that is exactly where our pies had been, the pastry was soggy in parts... More

We were staying for 2 nights for a wedding, warm welcome,clean room & fair breakfast. The pre wedding group enjoyed a good half hour of drinks prior to the ceremony. The proximity to the road did lead to some noise with early morning commuter traffic, but overall a fair stay.

Lovely meal only spoiled by noisy locals screaming at each other, making it difficult to hear ourselves - much improved though from several years ago
