Welcome to Bar Unico in Horncastle

Visit our sophisticated coffee bar in the heart of the traditional market town of Horncastle serving our much-loved authentic Italian food, fresh Italian coffee and homemade cakes. Once home to the town’s grammar school the building dates back to 1778 and is full of character and charm. We also have a spacious outdoor seating area and car park. On cooler days the wood burning stoves and exposed brickwork creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. Join us for breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake or an afternoon aperitivo served with a chilled glass of Prosecco or Italian-style cocktail. Regular speciality pizza and trattoria nights are also a hit with our regulars. We look forward to welcoming to the latest edition to the Bar Unico brand.
