We booked the Saracens Head through Expedia and so cannot comment on the booking procedure of the venue itself. Expedia was its usual efficient self. We read a number of reviews and the question of parking did put a slight doubt in our minds. An extremely easy place to find and we parked easily, no more than 100yds from the... More

We stayed here for a week in the old stable block which is full of atmosphere. Service was great, and we enjoyed breakfast, two dinners, and Sunday roast with friends. All the meals were delicious. The location was handy for buses right across the street connecting with the railway station for trips to London, etc. It was also great for... More

I was jet lagged and had just come from the Hospital. I walked into find a grinning barman! I take a stool at the bar and the barman approaches with the words "this one has been poured the most these 2 are our regular ales and you'll be having this one" I looked at him like the arrogant sod I...

Enjoyed stay here even though room opened straight out onto street (was a bit noisy from the boy racers). But the staff and atmosphere in the pub was great and the food wasn't bad and the beer was good. The other problem was parking which was on the street and very limited. I am disabled and this was a concern... More

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.

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
