Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
My wife and I found the venue easily, and took advantage of the free parking directly behind the restaurant. After a relaxing glass of wine at the bar we were guided through to the dining area, an arena of crisply pressed white napkins juxtaposed against oak walls and beams. One can really sense the homely atmosphere here, the type that can be found only in a family-run restaurant such as this.
For starters I enjoyed scallops with smoky bacon and garlic dressing, while my wife opted for deep-fried brie and camembert with a home-made, spicy pear chutney. This was all complemented by more of the house dry white, cool and especially appreciated on the warm summer's evening. The recommended catch of the day, freshly caught that morning, proved the perfect choice, light but filling. I chose the Cornish medley of haddock, lemon sole and monkfish served with a delicious crunchy salad of grapes, kiwi and an array of exotic greens. My wife went with wild salmon with dill butter ccompanied by a range of vegetables and delicious buttered new potatoes.
Despite feeling full there was still enough room for dessert, and as a friend of chocolate, I went for the chocolate roulade with Cointreau filling and chocolate ice cream. My wife favoured something fruity and wolfed down a generous portion of banana and kiwi cheesecake with vanilla ice cream.
You'll find the staff at The Unicorn ultimately friendly, providing stellar service with a genuine smile.
