I come to The Saracens most Sunday's for lunch, my father also takes a lot of his clients here. For the most part we always have a good experience. However a few weeks ago we arrived for Sunday lunch, there didn't appear to be a lot of staff on and we were kept waiting. Starters arrived the scallops were a... More

We stayed at this hotel for my daughters wedding, the location was excellent as it was only about 15 minutes from the wedding venue. Rooms were clean and comfortable, they were well equipped and of good standard. There was a very large party of family and friends staying after the wedding. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I stayed... More

We have family in Dunmow so sometimes need to stay overnight. Have eaten and drunk at the Saracens many times. This was our first overnight stay. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The bath was chipped and the extractor did not seem to work. The toilet seat was broken. A complaint led to a £41 discount on bill.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with family to attend a wedding nearby. Friendly staff, rooms comfortable, food lovely. The hotel bar has a welcoming atmosphere. The hotel is located in an interesting, quaint little town. Hotel has a carpark and is very close to Stansted Airport.

We arrived in the middle of a charity night. But were made to feel welcomed and wanted. We were shown to our room in a converted building at the back of the pub. It was big and tastefully furnished. It was however cold and even though we were equipped with a plug in radiator it did 'spoil' the overall effect... More

Myself and three colleagues stayed here for one evening. From the moment we arrived we had ample parking spaces and a good reception. My female colleage and I were upgraded to the suites because we were females staying in the rooms alone. I was, quite literally, blown away by how impressive the suites were. A huge bed, a separate lounge... More

Stayed for one night with husbands family for a special occasion. We booked 5 rooms (3 doubles and 2 singles). All were a good size and the beds were large and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very nice with excellent service. Breakfast the next morning was also very good. The pub is over 500 years... More

If you need a place to stay in this area - then look no further. Beautiful pub, beautiful room, great breakfast and very accommodating and friendly staff. I would almost call this place "boutique" I would definitely stay here again
