We spent a Saturday night in Amersham, granted it was a bad time as it was their "fun weekend" when a truly Stephan King carnival was covering the entire main street.. and so the Saracen's head pub was VERY busy. However, the room was right above the pub and was very noisy until 11:30 (about) and then the person(s) in... More

We would recommend this hotel to any traveller to the UK. Kerry and his team made us very welcome and made sure we had everything we wanted. The food was not only of a very high standard but well presented. The service at the bar also excellent.

I visited this place for dinner with my boyfriend. It was very last minute as we were waiting on the reserved waiting list for a table at the artichoke; to no avail. The restaurant/inn accommodated us. To be honest I was pleasantly surprised as the food was fresh, really tasty and hearty and the pub restaurant had a home cooked,no... More

My husband and I spent a week in Amersham at the Saracens Head and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived all the staff were really friendly and helpful. Before we even went I phoned to ask whether there would be a mat in the shower as my husband is not very steady... More

I stayed here for a night on a business trip. First let me start by saying that the Pub is exactly what you envision when thinking "traditional". Warm, inviting, friendly and built in 1620. It has everything you could possibly expect. In fact, I'd say it's one of my favorites that I've visited in all my trips to England. It... More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the hospital over the road. A very friendly welcome, and the food was excellent. Hugh portions, my husband had Cod and Chips, but it was more like Whale and Chips. Very good though.

Just returned home after a two night stay at The Saracens Head. i understood at the time of booking that it was a pub, but underestimated just how noisy it would be. The room was situated next to the pub on the main street, so traffic noise was a big problem, even people walking past in conversation felt like they... More

I loved staying in this hotel. Good food, good room, Great location and Kerry could not have been more helpful. Had a few pints in the courtyard and the garden too. Will be back when in the area without a doubt.

I booked a night at the Saracen's Head for after being blown away by the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. I came away terribly disappointed and wondering whether my fellow reviewers had stayed at the same place as me! My girlfriend and I were "greeted" upon arrival by a very surly and uninterested barman, who barely looked up when we arrived.... More
