The Unicorn Hotel

The Unicorn Hotel

This classic Art Deco pub serves old-school pub food, but they do it oh-so-well. While the laid-back brains of the operation may shy away from the ‘gastropub’ title, we can’t help but feel its deserving of its crown. The pub staples are executed so perfectly, it would be amiss to say otherwise.
