I have stayed here a few times now while on business in the area. Staff are always welcoming. Food in the restaturant has been very good every time I have eaten there. Rooms are a little quirky but it is an old building so don't have a problem with that at all. All in all a good place to stay...

The room was small but really lovely, clean and tidy. Breakfast in the...

Stayed in the Phoenix room with 2 friends for a long overdue catch-up and couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

Had lunch there recently - delicious pate and tasty salmon. Service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. Plenty of competition in Deddington and the Unicorn ensures the quality bar is high. Will return
