Upon arrival we made our way upstairs - trying to avoid touching the filthy paintwork on the once white painted bannisters and doors, and arrived in a room with the saggiest mattress I have ever seen in my life - not only saggy but lumpy too (although the bed linen was clean). I checked the bathroom to find pubic hairs... More

What can I say, probably the best meal the wife and I have had out for ages. Only went there because my local wasn't serving after 5pm last night, Sunday 28th June 2015 (their loss). I shall most definitely be going back soon for another quality meal, and quality service at the Saracens Head in Towcester. I would definitely recommend... More

A fine looking old Hotel on Watling Street mentioned by Charles Dickens but most disappointing as the old ground-floor interior has been hollowed out into a partially open-plan bar and dining area of tasteless modernism. Upstairs, it is still pleasantly quaint and obviously very old with sloping floors and exposed beams. The rooms which overlook Watling Street will be noisy... More

We held our wedding breakfast and evening reception here. We can not thank the staff enough for their excellent service. Sam was very helpful organising the wedding and would go out of his way to make sure all our guests were happy. The Staff were friendly and the Chef had many compliments for the meal and evening buffet. Absolutely no... More

I was booked in here for a work overnight stay, working evening meal and working beers afterwards in the bar (It's a tough life, but someone has to..), I initially did not hold high expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised with what I found there. I stayed in room 4 which was comfortable, clean, tidy and wholesome. I'm really only... More

It was a hot day and my wife and I see this pub. On walking in it was very nice and clean and posh looking. So when I ordered the drinks I was very surprised at the price not being over the top. The food was good and very reasonably priced. Will visit again.

Booked pretty last minute before a track training day at Silverstone down the road. The rooms are showing their age a little and could do with a little TLC. Old mould stains and general tattiness, the mattress was very soft and the overall general feel was a little 'old person's home'. That said this is the only negative I could... More

Stayed here on business, has a good atmosphere and made a refreshing change from the usual chain hotel. Food is available in the bar and is reasonable, other options are available in the town within easy walking. Onside parking is available, no issues in getting parked. Breakfast there was a good choice of hot or cold. Staff were very helpful... More
