The Unicorn is a lovely historic building in the market square of the beautiful old town of Deddington. The bedrooms have names, not numbers, which made us feel at home right from the beginning. Our room was Phoenix, which overlooked the market square and was plenty big enough for the three of us overnight. We were out late at a party and had a key to let ourselves in, but even at 3am a warm welcome awaited us; it was like coming home. Our room was a little cold as the radiator seemed to only work at the bottom, but the beds were comfy and despite hearing the church bells chiming the hour once or twice we slept well. We missed breakfast in the morning but again the lovely staff came to our rescue, finding coffee, tea and croissants to keep us going until lunch. We had booked a table for lunch the previous evening, as we had seen the dishes being prepared in the restaurant the night before and they looked and smelled fantastic. We were very glad we had because lunch was superb, and made more enjoyable by the friendly, cheerful service. I really can't emphasize enough how well looked after we were; nothing was too much trouble; we never felt we were interrupting anyone or being a nuisance. I would love to go back again and have dinner there and would happily recommend it to my friends and family.
