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.

My wife & I plus members of the family, stayed for two nights having travelled from Cornwall to attend a family funeral. The Landlord - Kerry made us all very welcome. 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.

The best roast lunch, six fresh vegetable, good beef and large Yorkshire pudding even if it was a little black on the top. Really tasty , hot and lots of it. The tuna sandwich was fresh and tasty too. Staff were very helpful and good value for money. Thanks Harry and James.

I have been several times for Sunday Lunch and can honestly say that it is very good. Huge portions with lots of freshly cooked vegetables. Kerry and his staff are extremely helpful and make you feel welcome.

A group of 12 of us visited the Saracen's Head over the Christmas period for a meal. We had a great time. A cosy, traditional English pub, roaring fire and great beer. The food was superb, I would especially recommend the tempura prawns and steak and kidney pudding (though there was no room for dessert!). The landlord and staff were... More

We finally found our way in the dark, quite late at night and immediately were welcomed by a friendly barman who showed us to our room which was spotless, charming and very comfortable and quiet. We had a few drinks in the bar and was amused by the last drinks bell and regrettably went to bed. Next morning we were... More

Spent one night is Amersham to visits friends. They recommended Saracens. It was great. Small quaint room in a very nice location. Rooms are adjacent to bar with great food. Room cost included full proper English breakfast. People who run it are wonderful nice and helpful. Thanks for making me feel comfortable!

This is a traditional country pub. Good selection of beers, "hearty portions" of food and staff and customers who make one feel welcome. The downsides are: Noisy rooms. If you think the ones on the street are bad, the ones in the stables are even worse since they are right beside the courtyard and garden, both of which are used... More

My wife and I made a very last minute reservation for a room to attend an event in Amersham. We had tried other places and all were full but The Saracens Head was not. We thought perhaps there may be a reason so when we arrived late Saturday pm we were very pleasantly surprised to be shown to a large... More
