E TA left this review about The Unicorn Inn

A very pleasant surprise after a day of awful lounge-type bars, this is what a pub should be like. An O-shaped bar with a central servery, carpeted, with exposed timbers and a welcoming fireplace. There is a TV screen, which was switched off, a piano which was thankfully covered over, and more interestingly a bar billiard table. There is a pleasant, well-kept garden at the back. Food is pub standards, well cooked and well-priced. Ales on were Hopdaemon Session Ale, Mighty Oak’s Little Cracker, Butcombe’s Christmoose and Masterbrew. All the beers were in excellent condition. Staff were helpful and cheery, and we were sorry when the time came to leave. I shall certainly be back next time I’m in Canterbury, and I would definitely include in a crawl. Why can’t all of Enterprise’s pubs be this good?

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Unicorn Inn

Very pleasant, very traditional pub just on the 'wrong' side of the St Dunstan's level crossing. Various seating / dining areas all around the central servery, all with the low ceilings and exposed beams that the attractive exterior suggests should lie within. Bar billiards and patio beer garden. Four real ales on handpump: Shepherd Neame Master Brew, Doom Bar, Hogs Back Surrey Nirvana and a rye beer from Whitstable.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Unicorn Inn

A decent pub this one with four ales and one cider on handpump. On our arrival to the bar we pondered for a while, until a local chap at the bar persuaded us to go for the Shefford Dunstable Giant. The interior of the pub is traditional in décor and the textured glass leaded windows along the front feature white net curtains. There was also a wood burning stove and lots of horse brasses displayed on the walls. If you do get to visit this part of town, there is a fabulous chip shop a few doors down from the pub, near the level crossing.
