user reviews of the Unicorn, Kings Langley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Called in on a Wednesday evening. 2 ales available: London Pride and Doombar and both drinkable. Bar service was prompt and efficient as well as beeing good value. A largish group of aggressive louts watching the match with a few glares. Toilets clean.

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again, but OK for what it is.

Not sure I'd concur with topPints comment about the beer. Yes, the bar only supports two handspumps so the choice may not be brilliant. But these were dispensing Adnams Bitter and Fullers London Pride on during my visit and both were very good.
And as we had come across it by chance when diverting off the M25 to find a decent boozer, the roaring log fire and reasonably priced traditional pub food menu were spot on.
So thought The Unicorn was a decent welcoming pub and wouldn't have an issue if it was my local.

A disppointing selection of beer is the only real down side to the Unicorn which is a real shame as it's atmosphere is generally really good, with a young but respectful crowd. Good bands on most weekends makes this a great place to go with the lads or with the Mrs. Open fire welcomes you into the bar along with pleasant and efficient staff, it's just a shame the beer is naff.

Being stranded in Kings Langley trying to get back to London, I came across this pub on a Friday night. Fantastic place, really friendly staff, wonderful log fire going and a fantastic atmosphere. My friend and I were made to feel so welcome. One of the staff called a local hotel for us and got us a great rate on a couple of nights, so we enjoyed a Saturday night here as well. Live music on the Saturday and the vibe was even better. Enjoyed a wonderful Sunday lunch before heading back to London. Going back down again in a couple of weeks with a group of friends for another great weekend. So easy to get to from London and such a relief to be in a great personal pub with such a warm and friendly atmosphere. Hats off to staff and management for making this place one to remember.

Possibly one of the oddest pubs I've ever been in. We got stranded aound here once waiting for a train and had a beer in this place. There were about 3 people in there, one of whom turned out to be the barman, all of whom were silently watching tv when we walked in. We quietly drank our drinks then made a swift exit. Bizarre.

Since Scott and Claire Rushton took over this pub, about 2 years ago, it's improved greatly. The food is good and the Adnam's Bitter and Fuller's London Pride are well kept. The serving staff are, generally, very pleasant and efficient.

As The Unicorn is a popular after-work watering hole, it can be crowded early in the evenings, with conversations often at high volume! Live music occasionally, on Saturday nights.

The original parts of the pub clearly are old, there are later extensions and an extensive terrace and decking area at the rear.

About a mile from Junction 20 of the M25/A41, it's a convenient pub.
