On the off chance we took a drive to the saracens head. Have been there once before food that good decided to drive the 80 mile round trip. Was not disappointed food was of the highest quality again. It was busy but our food arrived quickly. We urge anyone to go there but would say it's best to book.

The perfect place for my wife's birthday: a scrumptious meal at the Inn and then a great night in the Saracens Head Room 12! We've been coming to this Inn for maybe 20 years for the occasional lunch. Never been disappointed by either the welcome or the quality of the food. Despite being very busy last night (it was Bank... More

Tasty pub food in a very pretty location. Relaxed atmosphere, perfect for families. Good variety on the menu and kids meals available too. Reasonable prices would definitely go again. Do not miss out on this one!

Great pub in a beautiful tranquil location. Lovely rooms and really comfy bed from which we had superb views! Amazing selection of real ales and friendly and efficient service. Food in restaurant pretty good but not amazing - some of the meat was over cooked but all in all a good choice available....We will be back

Good food, beautiful setting ( and tasty barmen according to our daughter ) and a relaxed atmosphere . We did walk down from Yat Rock so built up an appetite by the time we got there , we weren't disappointed.

Whilst camping in the area we popped in on a rainy afternoon for a quick beer after a walk along the river. The service was superb, good real Ale and whilst chatting with one of the managers about the seemingly local wasp problems, he kindly fetched us from his stocks, some spray and flypaper so we could do battle with...

We booked this pub sometime ago for one night, however we decided to add an extra night and they found us an excellent room at short notice. The original room we booked was not available and we stayed in another. During the morning they moved our possessions to the new room without any fuss. All of the staff were cheerful,... More

Visited for supper whilst on holiday. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed. We had our dogs with us and they were welcomed into the bar area and then given treats for being so well behaved. Friendly helpful staff. Beautiful views over the river and perfect place to start and end a walk!

This was our forth visit to Symonds Yat, but our first time staying at The Saracens Head. We thought we'd push the boat out and book room 12, which I believe is the best room available, it's the priciest at £125 per night (inc breakfast). The room was more like a studio flat, with a separate living room area. Lovely... More

Clean rooms with lovely biscuits. As with every hotel I've stayed in they have thick winter duvets all year round and if you sleep with the window open it's very noisy from the bar below. The food is delicious especially the scallops and sweet potato chips which were so crisp. Main course portions were a little large so I didn't... More
