Had lunch here on a Friday afternoon. The pub itself is well decorated with a modern but cosy feel. All staff extremely friendly which makes a nice atmosphere. Food really tasty at a reasonable price. Lovely views over canal, will be fab when we finally get some sun!!

Always a treat to go to the Saracens whether for Sunday dinner or lunch any day. The food is always fresh and well cooked, the menu offers a nice variety and good selection of beer and wines.

We recently had lunch at the restaurant where the food was excellent with a good varied menu and the food is freshly cooked to your request .The main reason for this review is over the festive period and having eaten out over the period have felt that the general service levels have fallen but at the Saracens the two girls...

Visited with my wife and father for a late Sunday lunch. Booked in advance, received the usual warm and friendly meet and greet, limited menu but with items that are just a little different although today we had the pork roast and fish and chips. Excellent quality, large portions, we could not fault the food. It is a little more... More

Attended a few times, for lunch both as family and with a friend. Food was nice, was pretty expensive for what it was though. Small park on site
