Booked the Saracens Head as a last minute thing whilst on business in area. Very friendly and hospitable staff and owner. Excellent evening meal and cooked to order breakfast. Good range of real ales was a bonus. Room was very nice and spotless. I stay away a lot on business and this place is one of the best places I... More

We went here lunch time because it's close by where we live, and we looked on their web site and found the menu very suitable for our needs. As I don't eat meat but occasionally have fish, the menu showed some dishes that took my eye. When we got there we noticed how the staff were all very young and... More

We had 2 evening meals at this Inn and enjoyed both meals. The prices are a bit high but the food is sooo good! The waiters/waitresses were highly professional and friendly! Booking recommended as it is a popular Inn.

Booked a table for 8. Asked to come earlier than requested so assumed there must be a degree of planning but could not have been more wrong. Pub is a long series of rooms. We were in the far one with lots of table with reserved signs on them for people who never turned up so for most of our... More

We were here at xmas and went walking along the riverside followed by lunch at this place. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was great very busy and you can see why, the staff had a nice attitude and we really enjoyed it.

We stayed for a two night long weekend, at the Saracens Head, in Room 2, with spectacular views of the River Wye. The Inn has a small dedicated car park in front of it, along the rivers edge. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room did have a couple of minor issues, which were dealt with immediately.... More

We arrived at lunchtime on a day between Christmas and New Year. The pub inside was busy and so we sat outside as the weather wasn't cold and it wasn't raining, although there is also a covered area outside. There were not many spare tables either so this was a good sign. We ordered lunch (2 adults, 3 children) at... More
