If you have any further information about this or the other pubs in Trumpington, we would be very interested to hear from you.

The Unicorn is on Church Lane, the one surviving pub not located on the main road through the village.

It was extended in 2008 to provide bed & breakfast. After 170 years as The Unicorn , it was renamed The Lord Byron Inn in May 2012.
