Was taken there for valentines meal, the waitress was a rather rude with no customer service. We waited half-hour before being asked if we were being served, started an argument with my partner because we didnt want to hear her complaining about being the only waitress. The meal came which was basically thrown onto the table when she started complaining...

I am sorry to hear of your bad visit to the Unicorn, I will not tolerate any staff member being rude or disrespectful to customers. the evening should have been a night to remember for good reasons and not bad. the matter has been dealt with and the waitress has been dismissed from her employment at the Unicorn, although i...

This is a great place to visit for just a get together with friends etc for drink and a chat or to have a snack or a meal from an excellent choice of food. Visit on theme nights for curry and a pint or steak nights whichever because there is always a great selection of different foods

The positives, evening food and breakfast were OK! They are obviously short staffed as everything seems a bit rushed. Simple things like being asked if you would like any sauce with that are forgotten. The negatives, I could go on all day about the room I stayed in! I have stayed away at least once a week for at least...

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...

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.

Visited the Unicorn on Tuesday evening which is advertised as curry night - (curry and a pint for £9). Although their website states it;s curry night and the signs outside and inside state it's curry night apparently it's pie night!! Still ordered a curry but no pint with it, no choice of rice offered or chutney with poppadom as menu...
