Will Larter left this review about Unicorn Inn

This traditional old inn is a warren of rooms in an old building behind the main street through town. A former Hartleys pub, it still features XB and Cumbrian Way, though these are both brewed by Robinsons these days; the other two hand pumps had the parent brewery's product on. As well as the usual pub paraphernalia, there is a display cabinet in one corner with plates featuring unicorns in the design, some based on the Tapestry Cycle, an ancient series of six Flemish tapestries depicting the senses, some just modern sub-Disney kitsch. This is a friendly and welcoming local, well worth seeking out.

Traditional sort of town local. One large room, with pool area to side. Beams and horsebrasses. Beers from Robinsons range seemed in good order. Food lunchtimes and evenings. Fair enough.
