The Unicorn’s Head is an attractive, friendly and welcoming pub serving good, well priced home-cooked food and decent local cask ales.
The pub, which is owned by Everards Brewery, was built in the early 18th century and has a rich history. It used to have its own brewhouse, which explains the enormous chimney on one side. The pub also used to be a coaching inn and the original stables still exist.
Today the Unicorn’s Head is both a pub and a restaurant and does a good job of this dual role; it also has a large beer garden with children’s play area and enjoys a lovely setting, making it a great family choice when the weather’s fine. The pub part comprises a cosy bar area with plenty of seating. There’s also a good old fashioned games room with pool table and table football. The newly refurbished restaurant on the other side of the building is spacious, light and comfortable with dark-wood tables and chairs.
The food here is well cooked, keenly priced and often locally sourced. Meat comes from Maloney’s of Tuxford (including the famous ‘Nottinghamshire sausage’), bread is from Turners of Cropwell Bishop and pork pies are baked by Hartland of Cotgrave. There’s also a stone pizza oven and thin-crust pizzas to eat in or take away.
