The Gift of the Pub
A really wonderful evening with friends, so Christmassy and such a gorgeous little pub. The staff are incredible and friendly and the food delicious. Thank you again!


My friends and I chose to have our annual festive reunion at the Lion and Unicorn and were looked after impeccably. The team were super friendly and accommodating. We felt right at home and stayed well into the evening. The food was delicious and venue perfectly festive. Would definitely recommend!


Our new kitchen wasn’t going to be ready by Christmas and having rung round what felt like everywhere, Phil the landlord managed to fit us in for a 12pm sitting on Christmas Day. The food was so lovely, the turkey and roast potatoes and veg were delicious and my homemade bakewell pudding was also gorgeous. The staff were also great as well as the ambience and decor. We will be going back next year as the price was reasonable too and they had a half price rate for our kids. Would definitely recommend!!


We would like to say a massive thank you for hosting our Christmas party. Everything ran really smoothly, your staff were absolutely lovely and everyone was really pleased with how everything turned out. Your efforts were much appreciated this festive season. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
