We booked very late and the accommodated us, I think we were lucky as they just had a cancellation, We were squashed in a little but it is a small traditional Inn with not much room. For Mothers Day they had a set menu which included all the traditional Sunday roasts! The portions were massive and there were seven ot... More

While traveling on business, I stayed at Saracen's Head for 2 weeks and felt so incredibly comfortable and welcome that I'll be sure to stay again should the occasion arise. Old world charm abounds, and the food was delicious! I had many options during my stay, but wound up having dinner in the pub most nights. The owner and staff... More

I am a guest in this hotel whenever I visit Amersham, Buckinghamshire. Saracen's Head Inn provides nice rooms and great ambiance. Most importantly, hotel people are friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend this place.

Decided to try out this pub after a meal - local pub full of character very small lounge area but the rugby was on therefore fighting for the view if the 2 tvs restricted where we could stay without a comment ;) definitely go back the courtyard looked okay - I'll try again when there's not a major sporting event...

We come here regularly for a nice glass of wine/pint. We love it, the staff are friendly, the prices are good for the area and although we only eat here perhaps once a month or once every two months the food has always been great. Be aware this is proper English country pub you will get proper 'mans' size portions... More

We have just finished a short trip to the UK and Europe. This was by far the best stop. The owners Terry & Claire are incredible hosts. All the rooms are accessed through the court yard & are very comfortable. The court yard separates the rooms from the pub. Makes for a good nights sleep. Fully updated. Except for the... More

Really nice food, particularly the burger. The landlord Terry is a really friendly and a hospitable host. Lovely atmosphere and good sport on TV. Would recommend it anyone in the bucks area or who is passing through Amersham.

The rooms are very "old world", comfortable & warm. Food is very good - honest pub grub - plenty of it & good value. The buffet provided after the... More

From beginning to end Kerry and his staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable and was good value for money compared to the other options in and around Amersham.
