The Unicorn Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Newton Solney
Reviewed 12 September 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of September. We were made extremely welcome by the owners and all the staff, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a double en-suite room which was in a converted old cottage. Very quaint, comfortable and quiet.
There is plenty of parking for large parties.
Also there are several menus all of which are varied and reasonably priced (if it's not on the menu ask the chef anyway, if he can do it he will).
I would recommend anybody to stay here if they want reasonably priced quality, friendly, comfortable accommodation.
It's a bit of country paradise with stunning surroundings.

Sometimes things are "Just meant to be". Out walking and fancied a pint so we called in at The Unicorn ( the other pub in the village wasn't open).
WOW, this is a gem!!! Looked at the menu and they did two courses for £7.95. We weren't going to eat but this sounded so good, although we did think that the potions would be small. How wrong could we be?
Excellent food, excellent service, amazing price. Think our walks may end somewhere near here on a regular basis.
HIGhLY RECOMMENDED.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and both rooms we had were unclean. I had to clean cobwebs from under the beds and the shower head was filthy.The rooms smelled of smoke and the towels smelled unclean too. On a positive the beds were reasonably comfy and the breakfast was good quality.

Came after work for some wine and food! Wasnt disappointed! Greeted by two gorgeous,helpful & friendly bar staff. We had chilli and garlic bread and cheesy chips off the bar menu and it was lovely. The decor is modern and you can also sit outside..The wine was beautiful too! Will definitely come back again soon! Thank you!!

Having phoned on Sun 21 July to enquire if we could have breakfast there on Tues 23 July about 10am we were assured that would be fine,no problem
We duly turned up on Tues morning to find both doors to the building locked and no sign of anyone inside.
Despite knocking for several minutes no one appeared,where was everyone?
We had no alternative but to go elsewhere for our breakfast but the whole experience was made somewhat worse by the fact that there was a large sign on the footpath outside the pub saying breakfast available every day.!!!

I really enjoyed our stay at the Unicorn - we were in the rooms at the back and ours was really comfortable; a very peaceful nights rest and we really couldn't fault the stay. Great value and a great breakfast!!
A bit of a let down was the pub itself...it was a bit soulless and the decor just doesn't seem right to me - not what I expected and this is why I can't give a rating of 5. However, if it is a restful night you're looking for, definitely give this place a go!

We had been planning to go to The Unicorn since it had been taken over, but work etc had got in the way. However, we were able to go last week and it was a thoroughly enjoyable dinner.
Good pub classics on the menu and a realy good atmosphere in the bar with plenty of locals enjoying a pint or three of Bass.
