The food and service was very good- best meal we had in north. Norfolk. Very friendly service, dog friendly. returned for a second night for a drink, and they were as welcoming, as when we went for food. a lot of locals are there which shows they have a good reputation. would return.

Had a Sunday lunch here 3 weeks ago. Late July 2015 It was OK, but overpriced for the area, having found many better venues in North Norfolk with better quality, but mostly better value for money I will not return. Nice place, good atmosphere, very slow service, but polite and considerate, yet overpriced food for the money, overcooked veg, this... More

We spent one evening here on our way toward Lincoln. Our room (#5) was very comfortably furnished with dresser, table, chair, wardrobe, good lighting and very good towels. Amenities included tissues, soaps, shampoo, and lotion. Wifi was good. Our room was quiet until the farmers started work early the next morning. We had excellent dinners of mushroom and pate appetizers... More

Lost in the lanes of Norfolk. Picturesque Georgian inn. Friendly. Good food, spoken well of locally. Good atmosphere. Excellent walking centre. There are 5 bedrooms, and we want to base ourselves here in the autumn for a walking break. We asked the chef how far away he lived, and he told us he was one and a half fields distant.... More

We stayed here for one night, purely because it was convenient for a party we were attending. We received a friendly welcome, our room was perfect with a decent shower, and very comfortable. We had a light meal before going out, which was really good. The staff were great as well.

We had a 2 night stay at the Saracen's head, midweek. The very small family room on the top floor cost £120 per night with 2 adults and a 2 year old. £240 for 2 nights, we probably could have got slightly better value elsewhere. The room was very clean and nicely furnished, having benefited from a recent refurbish. Generally,... More

This was our first visit at the recommendation from the owners of a cottage we rented for a week's holiday. The family owned hotel and restaurant was exceptionally good The ambience was splendid and the food and service were second to none. Would suggest a visit to anyone when in the area.

The Saracen's Head is our kind of place. We didn't know what to expect from a Tuscan villa in the middle of the Norfolk countryside but we found the little gem. And a rare gem that likes Jack Russell Terriers. All the food is iocally sourced and delicious. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended. This part of Norfolk is... More

Spent a lovely weekend at the Saracens Head. Tim and Janie were very welcoming from the time we made the initial booking. Just peace and quiet and long walks. The room was bright with a large bathroom and was certainly value for money. We ate dinner there on both nights and the menu was interesting with lots of variety. My... More
