A warm welcome from all at the Unicorn Inn
The Unicorn Inn is a free house pub and restaurant, brimming with rural charm and located in the beautiful unspoilt village of Heyshott near Midhurst, West Sussex.
Since its original licence was granted in 1839, many publicans have left their individual touch on the Unicorn.
A long and fruitful history has helped the Unicorn transpire into the perfect venue where you can enjoy a pint in the bar with the locals, tuck into a good hearty meal from the excellent restaurant menu or sip a leisurely drink with the family in a beer garden that offers some of the finest views of the surrounding landscape.
Today, the Unicorn is run by landlady Jenni Halpin.

The location of the Unicorn lends much to its appeal. There are a variety of local attractions close by including Heyshott Down Nature Reserve, Cowdray Park Polo Club, Petworth House and Deer Park, Goodwood Race Course and the historic city of Chichester.
Alternatively, there are many local walks to choose from, with Heyshott being just a stone’s throw from the South Downs Way. Whether you are on your way back from a morning ramble or you are stopping off for a pub lunch before a spot of sightseeing, the Unicorn is ideal.
Jenni would like you to think of the Unicorn Inn as a home from home and are looking forward to your visit.
