this is an old pub with a lot of character. the rooms were clean and smart and tasteful. We had requested a quiet room which it was after the pub garden emptied. it was a little smoky as the smoke came into the room from below, but again this went once the garden emptied. the breakfast was amazing and freshly...

A one night stay while touring England with my brother visiting from Australia. We had pre-booked a single room each en-suite and upon arrival our booking could not be found. When it was eventually found we couldn't be shown to our rooms because this would have left the bar empty of staff, so we had to search, I was told... More

My idea of a hotel is obviously something different to an Inn with some back stairs to rooms. No reception, no signage, no welcome were my first impressions. The room was very disappointing - small with one bedside table, a cupboard in which a shower, sink and toilet had been fitted and a very tiny triangular cupboard for belongings. It... More

We were booked in for two nights but only stayed one. Our room was on the top floor, was very small, and everything was either broken or on the brink of breaking. The en suite was so small, it was virtually unusable: we had to climb up into the shower past the sink. Maybe the rooms on the middle floor... More

I recently ate in the restaurant to celebrate with some friends. I ordered the lamb burger and struggled to finish. The chips were proper pub chips, lovely and chunky with a delicious taste to them. The burger itself was delightful. The whole atmosphere was welcoming and despite our large party the food did not take long to come out. We... More

So, the hotel/pub was very nice indeed. £30 through Late Rooms (£50 with Booking.com and others). Friendly reception and very nice comfortable room with large bathroom and shower. It would have been nice to have a table to work on but there is always something, isn't there? The bathroom could have done with a loo brush though. The WiFi reception... More

Just had a fabulous ploughmans lunch at this place. Very fresh food and of high quality. Although it was lunchtime midweek, the restaurant was full which says it all. Service was efficient and friendly. Would definitely go here again.

We had a family meal at the Saracens Head, as we had relatives staying there having travelled down for a funeral. The lounge area was warm and inviting, with a crackling fire - just what was needed on a cold November evening. The menu is pretty standard pub fayre, and reasonably priced. Service is friendly, and the food when it... More

The only thing good about our stay at this hotel was the breakfast. I couldn't believe the state of the room we had been given. There were holes in the wall and stains on the walls, ceiling and curtains. The bathroom was so small that you have to tuck yourself under the sink to sit on the toilet and the... More

We have now stayed at the Saracen's Head twice with our children; once a family group of 7 people taking four rooms, and once a family group of 5 people taking 2 rooms. Both times we have really enjoyed our visit. Last time we had rooms 2 and 3 which are both absolutely lovely, and have obviously been very recently... More
