This Unicorn Inn was on the east side of Blackman Street, nearly opposite Dirty Lane, now more elegantly Suffolk Steet. An elaborate ground-plan of this inn, with elevations, dated 1627, is in the library of the Society of Antiquaries, presented to the society by the late Mr Halliwell Phillipps. The premises were very extensive, comprising several warehouses, stabling for fifty horses, and many tenements sublet to wheelers, cowkeepers, and perhaps weavers. Some picturesque wood and plaster houses still standing, one of which is a tavern with the sign of the King's Arms, probably formed part of the old Unicorn. The gables resemble those shown in the old ground-plan. --[R. and N., 347.]

It was in Unicorn Yard that a meeting-house for Baptists was erected by the congregation once meeting in Goat Yard. When the lease of their old building ran out they erected the new one in the yard at the back of the Unicorn Inn, and there worshipped until the lease of this expired and they had to migrate to Carter Lane (q. v.). The issuer, John Prince, is said to have largely assisted them with funds to build this meeting-house at the back of his inn.
