I have many happy memories of the Saracen’s Head in Towcester as when I was younger we often stopped there often on the way to London. It was also a place where I called on the day that I left home for the first time to take up student life. I was a tad nervous and a steadying drink in... More

Ate here as a party of 10, had absolutely shocking service!!! Half the meals came out and then had to wait another 15 minutes for the other half to come out. The roast beef was tough and when we said this they didn't have anything to say about it and just walked off. Then waited about 20 minutes for them... More

A welcome return to the Tribute Nights at the Saracens Head. Neil Diamond/Elvis was excellent and the service, food and value were first class. This is the first of many future visits as it is a few years since these events have been held.

Just stayed overnight at this hotel prior to a meeting locally. This stay was near perfect. The outside isn't particularly appealing but inside the olde worlde charm of the place is abundant. A mix up with the room (entirely of my making) was easily resolved by the extremely friendly staff. The evening meal was very enjoyable and the breakfast was... More

A very good location just off the A43 - not far from M1 or Silverstone. Staff are really friendly - rooms are adequate with good facilities. The front rooms can be quite noisy with traffic - so try and get a room at the back of the hotel. Greene King run hotel - so expect a standard Greene King menu.... More

Fab staff, fab place, clean and spacious. The food was fantastic, especially the clotted cream cheesecake. Would definetly recommend and return. Thanks go to all the staff who... More

In the end we opted for a room that was... More

I really like the Saracen's Head for friendly reception and good breakfast. Evening food has been good when I've eaten there and good selection of beers. Best to ask for a quieter room away from the road. Rooms are clean but expect a few olde worlde craks and rattles as well.

Called for a meal on Saturday night there was 6 of us and had booked, it took over 1 1/2 hours and we hadn't had our main course. The quality of the meal when it arrived was good but had lost the will to live never mind eat.I am sure that this may have been a one off as the... More
