went to The Unicorn for some comfort food and found it; fish and chips better than the local chippies.

Oh well!! But I’m still never getting Doombar back in the bar!! And calling people “chubby” is offensive. So we hope we never see you again. Bye!

Just come out of the Unicorn and the interior just reminded me of my teenage years. It does not seem to have changed at all. Very traditional. Had a meal in the garden. Staff very helpful. Good pub food. Lovely evening.

Thank you, considering we had a fire a year ago, we endeavoured to keep the 400 year old building as it should - with a few modern tweaks!

Popped in to have a sandwich and cider before a night out. Good sandwich, fast friendly service, nice locals. Typical pub fare, but close to where we were staying.
