The Unicorn Inn & Brasserie is housed in what was the birthplace of Sir James Dewar, who invented the vacuum flask.
Today the Unicorn comprises a bar area with log fire, 36-cover restaurant with a ten-cover ‘snug’ area and a private dining area, which is used for functions.
Jonathan Clough, who is handling the sale, said the Unicorn’s reputation “continues to grow”.
“The business is presented in excellent order throughout and has the added advantage of a large attic area which could be converted back to its original use as residential accommodation,” said Clough.
The agent is marketing the property at offers over £195,000 for the freehold.
